Another small profit on the week

As the title says, I managed to scrape another small profit on the week.
My strategy, playing mainly MTT's is to break even most weeks and wait for the big win to boost the bankroll. The variance in MTT's is such that its very difficult to keep making a weekly or even monthly profit, so any week that ends up in the black is welcome, even if its only by a couple of quid. As they say, "Profit is Profit"
I've been playing mainly on Crypto this week via UK betting, the Payday tournaments, as always, had plenty of value and the value added AWF tournaments have some overlay as well.
The problem with the AWF tournies, at least as far as I'm concerned is that all of them except the $2k added $33 entry are above my normal stakes, no problem if there are satellites, except for the fact that all the sats are thunder format, which means the qualifiers are decided more by good luck than good judgement.
I made a decision a couple of weeks ago to avoid the thunder format tournies as I never seem to do well in them, maybe I should play stt's to try to win the entry into the $50 and $100 tournaments.
I tried to use Betfair again this week, but have to say its very awkward to use, despite the value added tournaments, it's too temperamental to trust money to, even opening the lobby takes up 50% of my cpu usage, compared to about 6% for the UK Betting site, I'm no IT expert but I'm sure thats not good news, and probably the reason that my laptop crashes frequently if I even have the software open, never mind playing it.
There are some good value tournaments in their online BAPT promotion, but if the site is so unstable it caused my computer to crash, then I think I'll have to side step it.
I wont play much over this weekend as I'm heading back to the UK for a few days to attend an engagement party for my nephew, can't say I'm looking forward to it. Apart from meeting some people who I haven't seen in a while, its going to be cold, wet and expensive. Bah Humbug.
