My Poker Life


Ohhh Boy, Here we go again........

Well I would love to report that day 2 of the march month was much better, however it was more of the same as yesterday only times 2.

I played the 8pm and the 10pm tournaments and was knocked out of both embassesing early.  Seemed like no matter what hand I had it was always beat or drounded on the river, every single hand I played.  Every flush beaten by a 1 card higher flush, every straight got its butt kicked by a long shot flush on the river, A solid 2 pair got burned alive again on the river, when it gave up trips to a crappy poket pair that in all honesty a decent player would have never played with the pre-flop bet.

But that is one of the challenges of the PSO.  Trash players and real Villians are all thrown in the melting pot together.  I consider myself to be a above average player skill wise anyway, but the trapping that creates is also dangerous in poker as the "Poker Gods" have seen fit to remind me the last 2 days.  While I may have many skills, I seriously lack one vital element,...... Luck.  Nope, I just don't have luck.  And unfortuanatly all the skills in the world cannot make up for that, it can however compensate. 

So if I am going to have any chance at this months leaderboard at all I am going to have to change my game play up.  I will need to tighten up some areas and lossen others. 

Tomorrow I will play in several PSO's thoughout the day, as I am going to have to if I hope to recover from these very poor last 3 placings.  Needless to say I am not very happy with myself as these last 3 tourneys are nothing like my usual.  I rarely rank below the top 150 in these tourneys so these last 3 are very frustrating.
