A good night!

Hey guys, since that last post about the big Sunday session I have had little time to play. Unfortunately I lost quite a bit on that evening so I have been desperate to try and recoup those losses, but last week was my first week back at uni and I ended up going out quite a bit, and when I wasn't going out, I was preparing for an important interview for a graduate job next year.

Anyway, I managed to play a big session tonight as it was the end of the month and I was determined to get some profit. I started the night about $200 in makeup but ended up about $300 OUT of makeup as I had a really sick night on the 90s. I regged for loads and loads and ended up with

2 $6 1st places
1 $3 1st place
1 $12 3rd place
1 $6 2nd place
1 $6 7th place

So I ended up winning about $500 on the night taking me nicely out of makeup. Ben then came online and we sorted out the accounts and I got my profit for the month, which is always nice.

We have now reset the account, with me starting up again with $400. This month I will be trying out SNGWiz and also the $26 90mans, which should be fun! Hopefully I get a good run together when I play those and can rake in a lot of $$$.

We shall see!

Big Sunday!

Hey guys!

Since my last post, Ben and I decided to split the current profits I had, and then restart from $200 again on full tilt. After running pretty well at the 90mans, I got that back up to about $330, while busting a few of the miniftops I had played.

Today was the big day though, as there were 3 ftops events, (including the main event), and the opening GSOP on bwin.

I will breakdown how I did in each

- $24 6max KO

Got off to a good start in this but then lost AK to AA aipf to cripple me, before losing 88 to KJ to bust.

- $22 Deepstack

Did terribly in this. Got nothing going.

- $22 Rush Rebuy!!

I loved this tournament. It was so fun. Unfortunately I was in for $100 at the end of the rebuy period, but I had a good stack of around 15000. I soon worked this up to about 35k after making a hero call :). I was happy to make a hero call and stick with my gut as sometimes I can get intimidated in these big fields.
Anyway, I soon lost with 78 on a AA77 board to AQ and then ran 55 into QQ just short of the money.

- $75 main event

aggro spewtard decides to 3bet and 5bet me with AK preflop. I get it in with QQ. gg me.

I really enjoyed tonight though. I learnt a load and loved the challenge. Its just a shame I couldn't take that $20r run a bit further.

Ah well.

Back in Notts now, and this week there are more GSOP events for me to play. I guess they will be pretty soft, so lets hope a FT comes my way.

C ya.

Putting distance between myself and makeup?

Hey guys,

My last post highlighted how I was just out of makeup. Since then I have put in a few nights of volume and I have won about £150. I feel like it could have been more as I have got two 3rds in the $12 90s but meh, I won't moan.

Things are going well. I am back watching loads of pokersavvy videos, and I seem to learn a lot from these.

In two days I go to Prague for a few days, which should be sick. I will have one more session tomorrow evening, but then it will be no poker till after Prague, but I will have something to look forward to as it is miniFTOPS time! I will be playing a few events ranging from $20-$75 buyins, and I really hope I can put together a deep run and maybe bink one?

Following the miniftops is the GSOP on ongame, which I should be playing as well, and I've got a feeling I will be majorly +EV in that, so it would be stupid not to play.

Seeing as I am feeling confident about my game at the moment, I have decided to set myself a nice realistic aim for before I get back to uni.


- Win the miniFTOPS main event for six figures.

I will be disappointed if I fail in this aim.

Gl at the tables all!
