RocketmAAn's Ramblings

FunnnyBone on PS

When I first started playing poker, I thought that tounaments looked harder to play for most people and thought I would have an edge if I went that way.  Now, I see that Cash games can be more difficult.  For that and variance reasons, I am trying to shift my focus to learning about and playing more ring games.  That old tourny addiction can be hard to kick.

PS trivia
2008 - managed to Freeroll a Sunday Morning Warm-up Ticket.  Waited about 7 months to use it in 2009 and cashed for $522.  According to OPR, with only this and a few other small tourny cashes, managed to rank in top 30% of all players that made a profit.  Since less than 20% of all players on PS show a profit (tourny) that kinda makes it rank in the top 6% of all players.  Of course OPR assumes I spent $215 entering the tourny, when in fact it was free, so my meager net profit is almost double what they show. Who knows how much higher that total would rank :mrgreen: .  I still don't know what to think of the fact that with less than 6 cashes you can be better than 94% of all players for profit :?: :!: .  Somebody is taking more than their share.
