WBCOOP 7 Stud success

By: Ovalman @ 14:10 (EST) / 450 / Comment ( 0 )

$11 ticket.

I'm no expert on this game and I just about know the basic rules but my post earlier about game selection has proved correct. There were only 215 players and 96 tickets. I was up and down like a yoyo but I felt I was unlucky at times, not hitting the draws and hitting 2 pair and trips and being outdrawn on the river.  Luck evened itself out however and I eventually hit several times wiining 2 all ins and getting myself a decent stack.

Card dead for a bit, (although in stud you can hit anything after 3 cards) I tightened up, made the payouts and waited on a hand. Flopped a pair of 99's with 6 BB's and pushed pushed pushed. I was ahead to the river where my opponent chased an A to hit 2 pair. I could have limped for a higher ticket but that's not my style.  wanted to double up and win the thing.

I messed up in the PSO Premier League Qualifier. I was sitting comfortably in 104th position and played 2 others and dropped to 187th. I knew I had to work again so I played the 4pm game, got a decent stack and then played like a ROCK! I did limp for points TBF but I made the cash so hopefully my position will improve.

I'll keep an eye on my position as I don't want to drop places but I don't want to risk losing a spot in next months Premier League. 3 days to go, hopefully I won't have to play the tournie again.

Good luck at the tables.
