New Day...Better Results

By: SkinyButPhat @ 13:52 (EST) / 320 / Comment ( 1 )


I am  starting to love the PSO Open League !!

I played in two events in the last 24 hours and feel like I am hitting my stride and learning to be patient and play quality hands versus quantity.

I have found that reviewing the MTT tourney sessions has really helped me to improve my game over the last couple of days, and was shocked to have two top 500 results in full 10,000 player tourneys.

I finished around 430 yesterday, and after being down to 480 chips with the blinds at 300/600, I pushed all in on the button with suited connectors, and caught my straight to quadruple up and make my move with about 2200 players left. After that, I waited patiently for a great hand and was rewarded with both AA and QQ about twenty hands later !!! Unfortunately, around 500 players left, I made a rookie mistake and shoved with low pairs, and was caught by an A on the flop !!! When will I learn !!

Today, I managed to get all the way down to 140 players in a 10,000 PSO Open by learning from yesterday and not playing very many pre-flop all ins at all. When I did, it was in a power position, with great hands like AA and KK, with minimal opponents, and I was rewarded with a fantastic finish !!

I am now in the top 1300 in the PSO Open League, and if I can keep up my solid play, I may even be eligible for a cash reward. $2.50 will allow me to buy into the World Record event and even have enough left over for my favourite tourney, NL Omaha hi/lo 18 person SNG.

Thanks Pokerstars, I am learning, and my curve is only going up !!! Hopefully I can continue to increase my PSO points and be able to play cash games by next month !!!

JUST LOOKED - MOVED UP 594 Spots to Top 950 in Open Poker League !!!!! WOOT WOOT !!!!
