Just Another Monday

By: ReggaePirate @ 13:12 (EDT) / 96 / Comment ( 0 )

Started this morning in Position 1199 with a score of 1903 points. This was down from Sunday night when I was in 1173rd posn. So I'd dropped 26 positions as a result of various tournament results that I didn't play in coming in. e.g. the 6pm, 10pm, 2am and 6am.



I playeyed the 10.00 am Tournament and went out in the 6th level in posn 2161 out of 10,000. I raised from early with AK which was ok but I think I should have refrained from a bet  given I was not in a good position and it was very early in thetournament. As a result I failed to make the final 1440 but I did manage to stay positive earning 0.37 points. A bit dissapointing.


This afternoon I played the 2pm tournament and had a good run getting knocked out in about 600th place. I played poorly in the last hand betting from the big blind with K3 suited and ending up all in when I had enough chips to survive the next 5 blind levels. Poor play. I am still waiting for the results to be posted from this tournment. My current position rank is 1215 having dropped further against players in the same tournament. Still it could have been worse.


Update: 9pm  Results in Current Ranking 1019 with 1937 pts up 196 places. 34.47 pts scored

I am using Poker Tracker to go back and analyse each tournament highlighting any mistakes and refining my strategy accordingly. I think my basic strategy is ok but I just "forget" to use it sometime...
