Fighting for the blinds: Donkey kung fu style!

By: 2edgar @ 16:15 (EDT) / 1 / Comment ( 4 )
I finally won my first sit and go game today. It has been an epic journey, there were times I thaught I was done for, I went from both extremes, the highest chip leader and the lowest towards the end, then high again, luckilly luck was on my side today.

My stats for the game:

PokerStars Game #64517410730: Tournament #414218056, $0.23+$0.02 USD Hold'em No Limit - Level XIV (800/1600) - 2011/07/14 7:09:02 NZT [2011/07/13 15:09:02 ET]
90 entrants

Here are some entertaining plays...

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

In my own opinion I think my opponent was aiming for a flush draw which never came, I also noted that he has not made any plays since being transfered to our table, and he has seen me once or twice being aggressive with my plays as per instructions in the sit and go articles...thank you sit and go articles =)

But this time I knew I shouldnt be playing 7,3 suited like a maniac, thats not even in the rule book. I guess I got lucky with this play, this was the first time I tried this strategy the oppsosite of aggression, except towards the end.
