Day 50: A new year! Deep Runs and a new focus!

By: Tizmouk @ 20:29 (EST) / 178 / Comment ( 3 )

Happy New Year everybody!!

So a new year with new targets and a whole new determination to beat this game! I am feeling more committed and more confident believing that I am playing good poker and that it is only a matter of time before I make my first MTT 1st place for a decent score.

I think this needs to be my main focus. Looking over my loosing spots over the last 50 days they always seem to happen when I have been playing cash. Plus I enjoy the MTT's far more anyway. Sure it stings when you bust deep, but its also the extra skill dynamics involved in tournaments that males the game more interesting and therefore more enjoyable for me.

The first day of the new year has seen me play plenty of tournaments with some varied results. I managed to go deep in a few for some decent scores


26th / 1284 for $15.40

174th / 2519 for $16.80

15th / 779 for $26.80

113th / 1325 for $10.50

43rd / 970 for $13.01

340th / 2855 for $2.22

67th / 6449 for $3.52... This one stung. All in with 44 on an AK4 board with 26bigs, AJ calls and hits runner runner... If I hold I have a top 10 stack.


I played the Sunday storm despite it being just outside my bank roll but believe I can stretch to this tournament when I get the chance using it as my 'shot' tournament. Unfortunately we didnt cash today as we lost a 3 way all in as a statistical favourite with around 8000 players remaining. Maybe next time!

I would like to once again thank you guys for the kind comments and and messages. It truly is appreciated and It is great to know that some of you enjoy reading this blog and I will endevour to keep going and to try to keep it as entertaining as possible for you guys.

BR start of the day: $921.15

BR end of day: $922.64

Day profit: +$1.49

Total Profit: +$1773.25

Thanks for the read and See You @ The Tables!
