Milestone 1 – Sit N Go Quiz …. Check!

By: Hades1666 @ 02:56 (EDT) / 447 / Comment ( 0 )

I have been playing for 5 days now on Poker Stars. Things have been going well.

I have been playing on the 2c cash tables, as well as the 90 seat Sit N Gos (both the $0.50 and $1 Turbo) And had managed to build my initial $50 deposit up to just over $90. But I think over confidence must have become an issue, and I lost some pretty big pots.

I buy into a cash table at 100xBB, and it hurts to lose that amount on one hand. And I did it twice. A higher flush slow played, and a straight that I didn’t see …. Arrrgh. Such idiotic mistakes. Mistakes that should be well over making.

So my Pokerstars bankroll sits at $87, of which $11 is earnings from the 2c cash tables.

The remaining $26 comes from Sit n Go’s and  Tournaments with a total buy in of $6. Now this is surprising to me, as cash tables have always been my stronger game. But these Sit n Gos are the whole reason that I am playing on Poker Stars in the first place.

Out of 7 Sit n Go’s (90 Seater) I have managed to place first, second or third. Otherwise I bust out before the first break.

I also tried my luck with a 1.5k GTD tournament ($1 Buy in) and made it to the money. But still far from the final table.

All in all… I think  im on the right track. Loads more practice and fine tuning and im  pretty sure I will be cashing in more SnGs.

As for the league. I finally managed to do the SitnGo quiz, and have that under my belt. Am well on my way to getting 20 VPPs (Currently at 15.99). But the open skill freerolls are proving to be a bit of a B@^%$$%. But I have been getting some advice in the  forums on how to deal with this. Hopefully I can get some points next time.
