My scheduled trip is around three weeks of poker, so with the calendar I've set out, whilst I can simply hammer away day after day and play everything in sight until the budget is exhausted, there isn't actually any need to try to force things. What I don't want to do is play every consecutive day, and find I burn through $15k and still have a week left. This would then mean I then play anything else totally on my own dime, and whilst this is OK, I don't think it sits well when you play a package with investors, so I try to avoid doing it when possible and would rather space things out nicely instead so we're all funking together. No one likes to hear "yeah, I just cashed for $50k, oh, but that event wasn't part of the package..."
Also, being at least slightly organised, I factored a total of $19,500 of events in during the trip, with the schedule itself being $15k altogether. So whilst some are definites (mainly the WSOP ones), this means I can pick and choose a few of the others on the schedule and still have plenty to play.
The other aspect is that I preach (OK maybe advise) to people who ask me, that you don't have to play every event in every casino every hour of every day whilst you're here. A lot of players feel if they are not playing something every second then they are effectively losing money. I don't hold with this, and occasionally refer to the cautionary tale of a player I knew, who torched $12k in three days flat on his first trip here, because he played everything in sight, and as a result played tired and badly, and basically wasted his money. Hey, we're all different. If you have unlimited funds and don't give a shit maybe this is right for you.
I also am playing 1B of the WSOP Monster Stack tomorrow (this is a definite), so want to be fresh for that. I have some errands to sort and the rest of the day will be chilling and prep for tomorrow.
