Day 19: More Deep Runs.

By: Tizmouk @ 19:32 (EST) / 214 / Comment ( 0 )

I started playing today as soon as I finished work and opted to start with the daily challenges. This as with yesterday started horribly and I could not seem to catch a break losing a good $15 straight off the bat.

We then opted to jump onto the cash tables while waiting for MTT's within our bankroll to start. I clawed a few dollars back and soon had to close them all to play the MTT's. I like to play 6 tables at once and I now was registered and playing in 6 MTT's.

3 tournaments continued with the inability to hold when ahead however we were catching some luck in the $1 rebuy splash (I never rebuy only add on if I am still in). We soon busted in the 55c tournament coming in 80th out of 1588 for $2.16.

The splash was going very well and we were middle of the pack with 33 players remaining. It folded to us in the SB and we opted to make a standard shove with pocket 4's with our last 10 big blinds and was called by AJ. The winner of this pot would be 2nd in chips and unfortunately it was heart ache for us as an A fell on the flop and we failed to improve. Our finish of 33rd from 1624 was good for $26.25.

Finally we were still in the big $0.55  but finished 103rd out of 5588 for $2.57.

With that the bankroll looks like this

BR start of the day: $129.73 + $10.00 BR booster

BR end of day: $158.21

Day profit: +$18.48

Total Profit: +$98.82

Feeling dissapointed not to hold at crucial moments that would let us possibly final table but feeling good that we are consistantly putting in deep runs! Thanks for the read and See you at the tables!
