The Wave

By: JBCD71 @ 08:07 (EDT) / 459 / Comment ( 1 )

When it comes to luck in poker its how i find i use that luck in poker to get me far in tournaments.Just like a surfer waits out in the giant sea for that big wave to get his rush of enjoying a longer amount of time riding the wave.I find this same feeling in playing poker tournies.Of course theres more than luck in poker and other scenarios i wont get into in this blog.I wanna focus on the patience and luck part of poker thats crucial to everyones game.

Just like a surfer you wait for that big wave or Tsunamai,as in poker i wait for that big hand or that tsunamai of cards that come in waves.For example one time in a tournament i waited and waited and wouldnt give in to playing a lousy hand.Finally after having patience and waiting for that oppurtunity or big wave i came into a decent chance for me to win.I started with a 3000 stack and dwindled it down to 1000 waiting for that (big wave).I got aces had two players shove in front of me and got up just over 3000 with antes.Guess what? Got aces a second time and two players shoved in front of me again,putting me with a stack of just over 9000 chips in a matter of seconds.

After this happened i was laughing like a kid in a candy store.And smiling cause i just hit one of those big waves i talk about.Just when this was done happening i was thinking to myself theres no way i can get aces a third time,whats the chances of me hitting it aces twice?  Three times would be incredible.

The Tsunamai happened and got aces a third time to bring my stack to almost 30,000.I was in disbelief and excited of course.In all my years playing poker this has never happened to me.I wonder whats the odds of this happening.Getting aces once is 1/221,getting aces twice or even three times must be huge.Maybe someone can help me with that.

In all my  years playing poker i only came across the Tsunamai of cards twice,one being the aces story and the other when i started playing poker way back when not many people played and the fields were much smaller.It was so much easier to win cause there was so many more fish and players that were uneducated about the game.It was in the course and stretch over a month i rode that wave and ran good.I made a substantial amount of money in a matter of a month that would take some people to make in a few years.It was the tsunamai's of all tsunamai's.

I long for that wave once again and will continue to look for that wave playing the game.When i play tournies i look at the sea of players,i look for the wave that takes me to that final table.Then perhaps the wave that will carry me to winning the tournament.

Riding that wave is some much fun when its the tsunamai and carries you all the way to winning the tournament.Theres no feeling like winning a tournament with a sea of thousands of players.

I love this game and look forward to hearing simaliar stories of other players in the cummunity.

See you at the felts,
