The Road to Being a PokerStars Pro


How I Won My First PSO League

By: SarahCandatu @ 19:03 (EDT) / 340 / Comment ( 9 )
True to what I've posted in my last blog, the strategy of play that I would bring into the table proves me right. My strategy to sit tight, use my time to downsize the field, and play premium hands. To my surprise it works.

Looking at my stats, I played, most of the time, just about 20% of the hands that was dealt. And with luck on my side, I picked up AA and KK at least once. I really don't have to play that many hands when the field is big, and since most of the time, at least in this league, a great number of the players are the type "donkeys", "idiots", "fish" to some. (LOL). This is not "THE BIG GAME" wherein the hands to be played is only 150. Although all through out the tourney, it could sum up to around, yes, 150 hands total.

The final table is not new to me. I did the same, played premium hands and a bit wider range of face cards and speculative hands that improved. The heads-up is not new to me, too. With a 5:1 chip advantage over my opponent, the game is over in less than 30 hands.

With the 1st place finish, I made a jump from 148 to 28 on the leaderboard.

And it came with US$5.59 to start me yet another NO-DEPOSIT poker journey.
