Still climbing up on the leaderboard...

I missed the first 8 days of the month, in the league, and my question is if i can reach the top 10? I think its possible still.

I manage somehow only to play 2-3 games a day, to be able to catch these guys on top i really need to play more of them, atleast 4 and place top 500 in each one.

Been playin AA, KK, AK and when i get the chance, even the blinds. Sometimes been lucky to hit 2 pair or set on flop on my bb. Been folding AK on a reraise/shove preflop. And im timing out every hand!

QQ fold to a shove, early stage of the tournament. I didnt raise preflop with QQ here (in a normal tournament i wld!) I dont want to risk leaving the tournament in this early stage, and to lose points in the league. So i rather limp with them and call a raise to see flop and i fold them to a shove preflop. If it was late stage of the tournament i wld of played them diff.

AA raise utg. Any time in the tournament, early, middle or late, doesnt matter, i played them aggressive. I dont raise 3xbb in the PSO Skill League freeroll (as i wld normally do in a tournament) Here i go more aggressive, cause i know i will get callers, and i will gain more chips. (well this time only one caller)

Heres another example with AA, about 3100 players left. Im risking to leave the tournament and lose points, good thing it wldnt be that much i wld lose as im close the top 25%, but noway i fold AA here. Did a lill mistake here, shld of raised more preflop!

When im top 25% in the tournament then i wld play the hands different, gamble more with AK and QQ, but till then, i rather fold them preflop to a shove!

My Sore so far...
