Played live on friday, £25 freezeout at Ramsgate. Don't normally play this tournament as they have max entries of only 45, and they pay 9 people ugh. Also the structure isn't amazing. Anyway, was on table with Ed from the start until we split 1st and 2nd. We played on for £50 (I had a 2 to 1 chip lead going headsup) and then we basically went allin every hand until he beat me :-) I got £310, not bad, never going to get the money in a £25 freezeout that you get in a £10 rebuy. I was very pleased with my play on the final table, got there on average stack, just stayed out of trouble, didnt pick up any hands, picked my spots to steal, and made it to headsup with very little risk. I wish I could start every tournament on the final table with average stack, perhaps I wouldn't hate them so much!!!
Played my one tournament of the week tonight, Bodog. JJ v 99 allin pre for a decent size pot after about 2hrs. 9 first card, standard.
Someone on my table linked me to this tho, he was pretty worried being sat next to me and head2782:: http://www.internettexasholdem.com/poty/index.php?show=viewoverall&site=9
2nd ranked player on bodog this year!!! Haha you wouldn't believe I was so busto if you looked at that :-)
I paid for Sixth Sense, 6 months cost me $144, pretty expensive but I think it pays for itself. Also my 200NL database is getting pretty extensive, I have thousands of hands on all the regulars now!
Gonna hit it hard this week, need to start making some $$$, this summer has sucked, I've earnt way too many sklansky dollars, and way too few real dollars!!!
Graph for the month so far:::::
