Yesterday I played the 50k guaranteed once again and I managed to hit a royal flush within the first 10 hands + doubled up with that hand!
Unfortunately I did not use my early big stack very well and I just never managed to take off – in the end i went out after about 2 hours without getting close to the money positions.
I feel like early leads corrupt my play – I really have to use my chiplead way better than I do it in that stage. I am generally better in the later stage of the tournaments – I am more concentrated then and just do not donk off my chips that easily.
I guess I found another thing to work on …
SitnGos are going okay at the moment – but the $12 180s just do not work momentarily … I´ll go for 250 and let you know the results afterwards.
Since my nice hit, i am struggling to get any result. But I am still confident, as I play quite good most time and am just missing some luck at vital points of the tournaments. I guess I am in debt to variance, and therefore should not gamble in the later stages of the tournaments at the moment …
I played some nice tourneys tonite, but just could not finish anywhere – I still made some money at the cash tables, but the losses were bigger.
Playing mainly MTTs you have a lot of days like these – patience is the key and as long as I am confident and happy with my decisions I can live with that. I guess it would be boring to win big money every day (I sure could live with that kind of boredom)
I won´t play tomorrow and thursday evening – but I guess I will play this weekend again.
GL everybody – take down some big money, guys and gals!
Hi out there … since weeks i wanted to update my blog, but poker was so uneventful and my life so busy that I just postponed – and finally just did not write anything.
I really wanted to write this weekend, and since friday night I know that this post will turn into a brag post!
I played the 50k guaranteed on Stars and managed to finish it in 5th position.
I have been playing really good poker for some weeks now, but in the end I just could not turn it into money. All my great calls got sucked out and I really got frustrated – but last night everything was different. I played very well and when i made mistakes luck was on my side. Unfortunately I lost concentration on the Final Table – I was very tired and my decisions were just bad – but I won´t complain, as this is the third best result in my career.
My bankroll was around 1 Grand until last night – now I shipped some money to my bank account and am playing with a 3 Grand roll!!!
I hope I´ll update more frequently again …
All the best to all my friends – may the flop be with you!
