The real 15 at some point the numbers got out of wack..

So i just checked my notes for the NL hold-em 6max turbo. I didn't get time to write any.

So yes i said i was going to try to stay away from Hold-em events but it was this or the shoot out on Thursday.  Now in my own defense i don't play 6 max as a rule and i usually pick tournaments that are regular speed.

I started as i normally do quite slowly...but was getting bit worried and wondering if i could clock for a min cash when finally got a playable hand

so one of the problems of not playing many hands is folks tend to believe you when you do raise.

Winning races is important in these so..

A little later I got all in with 66 to find out i was against 88 but the flop brought a miracle 6 to give me a nice stack.

I was up and down after that and did slow down though the bubble then with 11 tables left...

out in 65th with a $11 SCOOP ticket this after a mere 90 minutes of play. 

so overall better than I was expecting I can only hope PLO will go as smooth.
