The Road to Being a PokerStars Pro


Find Your Way To The Top

I had made 8 runs and sits on Top 36 in the Leaderboard as of July 02, 2011 4:05 ET. As I've said in my earlier posts in this forum, the field is humongous and tough.

I had such respect for CannonLee, a fellowman from the Philippines. He sits consistently on top 20 and making his way on top notch by notch. Looking at his play history, he only needs to finished in the top 5%-10% of the field.

I had mustered a deep run of 31st place; but also had 4 finishes of 2,000 - 5,000 positions. These had eaten a chunk of my ranking.

Now, I'm adjusting my play to sit tight until the very last 10% of the crowd as much as I can. And how do I plan to do this? Play premium hands, use my time to downsize the field, then battle it up to finished in the last remaining 1000.

You don't have to make it to the money. For now, that would be my play. For now.
