Fun stuff!!!!!:mrgreen:  13 days left to see who is number 1. I really am trying this month. I just went all in with AA preflop with 12 k and got called by a 21 k stack with k10 off suit8) . The board ran 4j1010k:roll: . Suprise suprise person ranked 11thousand something after 30 plus games.... You gotta love poker!!!! Luckily I placed 67th so I can get my measily 15 points. Yay! today was up and down with 2 poisitive points and one -5 points. The God honest truth is that pso makes it way harder to advance to #1 when you have 1800 plus points.  
Anyone who is in the top 100 knows exactly what im talking about. So I'm playing here 3 hours plus not for the immediate money, but for the chance at gaining points. Let me tell you if I don't get in the top 20 % then I seem to go negative in points for that tourney.
       Now seeing that I just beat 80 % of the people youd think that would be worth alot right? No. If I dont get in the money I'm getting 5 points. If I do get in the money Im getting 16 points. Soon I will get 10 points for an in the money finish. This is frustrating to say the least. But what am I gonna do?:roll: Will it be enough to expose these truths and hope it changes? Or should I just suck it up and be thankfull I made it this far? Well I am happy I'm this far, and I hope to go farther, but I just want equality in scoring man!!8-O     So anyway now that I got all my whining out of the way. I feel better. Most of this is probably because I got my aces cracked after going all in preflop and being called by an 11k rank with k10 off for 12 k wen he had 21 k.  You all know this feeling!!!! The only way to get over it for me I guess is write about it. I can't say I blame the guy, if I played 30 plus games and couldn't keep my points above 1500 or rank above 11k and I finally cashed for one penny I might call 12k with k10 offsuit too. Those that dont care and just play for fun not money definately understand his reasoning. He probably thinks wow there are less than 100 left in this tourney i got k10 oh royalflush79 guy pushes for 12 k i snap call. After all I got k10 he says!!!!:lol:
      Man it never felt so good to go off on a cry baby tangent like this. Thanks all for listening to my aces cracked sob story. I'll try not to whine next blog.:mrgreen:
