Sleepy Sunday

By: ReggaePirate @ 13:05 (EDT) / 85 / Comment ( 0 )

Its 6pm and I'm still waiting for todays results from the tournaments I played to be posted.




I played the 10.00 am and 2.00 pm and finished in 866th place and 739th place respectively. Where this will leave me is uncertain....

Update 9pm:

Ok the results have finally been posted. I came in 739th position in this afternoons game earning 33.9 points and 866th place this morning with 29.54 points. Together this pushed me up 204 places to 1173rd in the ranking was what I had been achieving. This gives an average of over 30 pts for each match compared to the 16.6 points I calculated yesterday. So I've manged three consecutive positive placing and I think my highest position to date in the league to date which it should be as I keep playing more games that result in positive results.


I think I need to continue with the strategy although if overnight I drop more than the 216 places I have gained I will need to think again.I would like to finish in the top 1000 by the end of the month.

Looking at some of the recent results of the people immediately above me they are characterised by the same yo-yo results that I was getting a few days ago. Scoring positive 20-40 points in one tournament but then following it up with a negative result by dropping out early. If this is the case then if my new strategy of consistent moderate wins should see me rising steadily through the league. We will see!

I am also reassurred by the advice given in my Tournament Poker help notes that advocates very tight play in the first three levels and the betting of only hands Catergory 4 iand above n any position. If anything I am already playing tighter than this. In these early stages the number of players going all in and out as a result is very high. In the first quarter of an hour 5000 players have gone out and by the end of Level 5 with blinds of 60/120 and an ante of 10 almost 75% of the field has gone. By this time you are already in positive points should you go all in and lose. At this point you will have about 1000 chips still left.
