Best Finish So Far

By: KrazeeKrab @ 09:00 (EDT) / 237 / Comment ( 0 )
Played 2 pso tourneys yesterday. First 1 i went out in 307th position, got pocket kings around the 15th hand, raised 4 times the big blind, got 1 caller, flop is 10, 8, 4 not sure about suits. I bet about quarter of my stack, he raises all in. To be honest i thought he must have hit trips because he had only been playin nice hands from the beginning but with my kings i had to call. To my surprise he had jack,seven. Once again im not sure off the suits but it didnt matter anyway. The turn is a 4. Now i have 2pair and the only card that can save his mad all in raise is a 9 which obviously comes comes out on the river severely damaging my stack leaving me with about 200 chips very early in the tourney. I play very tight as its all i can do and manage to get my stack back to 1100 chips eventually. Then pocket kings again! I raise to 500 and 1 player re raises so i push all in. He has pocket aces and i got beat. Fair enough i got beat by a better hand so at least i dont leave the tourney feeling angry after some jackass plays a stupid hand and gets lucky. My second tourney was very quiet, i never had a big stack or a small stack i was always around the average and never came across any overly aggressive players. I made some nice calls and folds throughout and very rarely put a foot wrong. I think my game is slowly improving and was rewarded with my best finish to date 43rd which i was delighted with. I could have held on for another while but my stack was only 7500 which was small for this stage and i got pocket queens so i pushed all in, got called by a suited ace king and got beat, but the way i see it you play to make the money positions and once you do that you go for the win. Lets hope the improving continues...........................
