"WHERE THERE IS APRIL, THERE IS A MAY"

By: KELSTONER @ 07:07 (EDT) / 263 / Comment ( 0 )

"MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU"

 

APRIL- "QUEST FOR SUCCESS": Completed with positive results, which are listed below in the updates, lots of fun, I learnt alot of new skills and it was a great experience, bad or good I learn something new everyday which I plan to use in my game.

 

Slow and steady wins the race, this is the path I'm willing to take and this as always I like to say "WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY"

slow and steady has defernately benefited me in a huge way within the pokerschool open skill league and towards my goal to achieve 3 top 400 finishes in the open skill league to gain a chance to participate in the big band event. Now and then I may fall behind but I always pick myself up and regain what I lost, my leaderboard standings is at top 200 in the PS open skill league for April, I learnt alot during April and plan to put my new found knowledge to the test.

APRIL: QUEST FOR SUCCESS (update)
POKERSCHOOL OPEN SKILL LEAGUE leaderboard ranking for april finishing: 190th with under 20vpps which means I was only playing for $1, but I'll take it thanx . I also accomplished 1 out 0f 4 attempts for 3 top 400 finishes in the PokerSchool Open Skill League (PS OSL) which qualifies me for a ticket into the "BIG BANG EVENT"

"BIG BANG QUEST" (update)
As stated in the above update I managed to get myself 3 top 400 finishes in the PS OSL with 3 near misses. For this new month I managed to get  a ticket playing in a school pass Big Bang Satellite, 9 xBig Bang tourney seats guaranteed and I was automatically registered me for the tournament.
May is going to be a busy month for me if I plan to keep up with my goals, the OSL has not been very kind to me yet but I know there is plenty of time.

POKERSCHOOL PREMIERE LEAGUE (update)
Well funny thing is that I went to check my "Big Bang" ticket and found a PokerSchool Prem ticket which obviously means that I qualified. yay soo happy, but totally different to OSL, I need alot of work.

Here are some of my prem replays


Keep an eye out for any good tourneys, live training, promos or challenges

1) PS OPEN LEAGUE: Top 500 at the end of the month to gain a PS Prem Ticket.


2) BIG BANG EVENT: Top 400 PS Open Skill League finishes 3 times in a row.


3) EPT LIVE freerolls is currently running


4) school pass ticket tourneys


5) StarCoin tourneys

 

6) Women's tourneys: Any women's tourney is good and have great opportunities to get great rewards. I had done well one year but had slowed down from playing for some reason but we have our fair share of fun and dramas lol. Mite even see a few old faces...


7) I also play a little Ring Game Badugi 25cent/50cent, 2-7 10cent-20cent, Omaha fixed 2cent-4cent and Holdem NL 1cent-2cent/2cent-4cent. Home games, star coin tourneys from and many more..

My Goals:


1) BUILD MY BANKROLL $50-100+ within a month
Take advantage of all the freerolls available, especially ones where I can win tickets,currently running are EPT live freerol, Giveaway challenges, PSO Open Skill League, PSO Premier league, HOME GAMES, Personal Challenge, SHARE AND WIN, SCRATCH N MATCH, Live trainings any new promos etc.

2) SPEND AT LEAST 2 HOURS PER WEEK TRAINING TO IMPROVE MY GAME
This may be live training, training videos & poker books. Need help with my game play. Watching more live training videos to learn new stratigies. ( Frosty021, GarethC23, The Langolier and xflixx) TCOOP Special training for a ticket to win 1-100 $3.30 tickets, Full Ring Trouble Spot training and more great live trainings and live trainings to come. Some have VPP requirements.

3) LOOK FOR LEAKS IN MY OWN GAME
Study previous hands & get more info on opponents. Never jump straight onto a ring game and play. Sit back and watch how the people on the table are playing, they may be donkeys or fish.

4) TAKE REGULAR BREAKS
As well as short breaks during sessions I also need to make sure I'm spending enough time with my partner, his son & continue with my other interests to keep myself fit.


5) EARN 20-150 VPPs monthly, this will give me more chance to win more money on the Pokerschool league, (Premier league requires a +20vpp). My last years attempts were a total failer, and not being able to hold on to my positions, wheather it be on the table or the leader board.

MY TOP TIPs
1) Tight is right! There is nothing or little to lose in freeroll and low buy-in tournaments, which is why a lot of players go nuts. They invest too many chips into vulnerable hands. Play the opposite - play only strong hands like Ace-King or Jacks and you already have an advantage. Slow and steady..

2) Raise high preflop! When you decide to play a hand, raise a big amount to get maximum value. Don't be afraid of raising 10 times the Big Blind to enter a pot. Especially in the early stages of a freeroll, you will get at least one caller most of the time.

3) Play straight! When you hit something good on the flop, turn or river  - like top pair with top kicker - bet big. In a freeroll or low buy-in tourney, a lot of players check more often than they bet. Don't try to get tricky with slowplaying.

4) Don't bluff! When many opponents are loose, it's not a good idea to bluff. Be patient, wait for valuable hands and let the others pay you off.

5) Play aggressively on the bubble! Most opponents in these kind of tourneys play passively - especially when there are only a few places left until the money. Use it for your advantage and play aggressively.

6) Don't become so result orientated. This had been brought to my attention from a person commenting on one of my blogs, which I had found myself doing alot in my PS Leagues

Here are some replay hands
