1M Freeroll from All In Shootout Qualifier

By: Kennedy76ca @ 14:03 (EDT) / 437 / Comment ( 7 )

At present, currently on 2nd break,  I am sitting in 1400 out of a remaining 1800 people, out of a starting field of 76000 people, with 35000 chips below average. Blinds have been my biggest issue as the blinds increase and have been sucking away my chips at times during the tourney. 

I came into this tourney, needing to very patient and pick my spots according, and thus far seems to be working out and following the plan. At times, I have folded some hands just to keep my life alive, just wasnt worth it and paid off more than a few times. My cards have changed too, I was running the longest time with not very good cards, then as I got down to 800 chips left, the cards started to change. I was 4/10 in showdowns, to start, now I am 10/16.   

With 35000 coming back from break, and blinds at 7500/15000, everyone going all in, I had to pick a spot, as I was on the big blind coming back from break. I didnt have anything and had to fold away my big blind and small blind, leaving me with 11000 or so. So I got Q9h and shoved. 43A22 come up and I was out in 1500 out of 76000. I will take it, it was fun and able to add 30.00 to bankroll

Just don't think I was aggressive enough as play moved into a smaller amout of players. I didnt get  in too deep with bad hands or many speculative hands, also caught hearts on the river a few times earlier in tourney, to make flushes and stay alive.
