my poker journey


mid february

By: adohole @ 18:42 (EST) / 457 / Comment ( 2 )

heey guys,

lets go chronological throught this past 13 days, at the first day of fabruary something quite amazing happend i won one of the sunday million ticket. after this i had a few days where i ran really wel and had some gr8 scores. meanwhile i decided to sell some of my sunday million action. allot of people bought a few % but at the last i had sold around 25% but at the last moment allot of people decided they wanted to buy some action and eventualy i ended up selling 66%

but before i played the Million i had a few days of just amazing bad luck . lucky it only lasted 4 days but took 50% of my bankroll.

in my way to the sunday million i decided to not drink drink alcohol for a week, and form the moment i won the ticket i made a schedule for myself. at the mid day i ussualy did a 12 tabling session of 6 max hyper sattys to train my stamina. somedays i played 1 table cash/tournament to trigger myself to see everything at the table because i was gonna 1 table the million. and i scheduled som late nights to simulate a deep run. but eventually that all seemed to be for nothing. i did have a gr8 table with only 2 winning players but i couldnt hit a flop which is even worse then card dead since you already put some extra money in the pot. was pretty frustrated took something to eat and diceded i play one mare game diceded to play a 2.50 180 man wich i binked . it was extually me second cash in these games after over 50 games of them. this was a gr8 boost for my bankroll toghether with the 66% sold from my sunday million i had a good bankroll again. for the next 4 days i moved my bankroll up and down and up and down but nothing significant. decided to play some more 3.50 9 man turbo sng's for some extra vpp's a day.

but then today happend and after a midday session witch has been amazing i finaly got lucky at the right moments i was playing th hot 3.30. i did not win every flip but lost the flip where it was for 2bb and won them if it was for stacks if slowly worked myself up to the final table where we discused a deal with the last 3 but 1 guys who just won with k6 of my 77 where he took almost 40% of my stack decided that he didnt want to take the deal 3 hands later the guy who declined the deal was out. so i discussed a deal HU second place was 1700 and first was 2200 i had 4million chips he had 10million. we got to a deal where i got 1900 an he got around 2k.

at the same time i was discussing the deal something funny and stressful at the same time. i like to grind in the libarary sometimes the deal was finished at 16.45 and the libarary would close at 17.00 so the first hand after the deal i had 13 bb and j2 i shoved he called with k5 and he held so for the prize money it didnt matter but now i cant say i won a HOT but then i checked my email.

Thank you for participating.

then i opend my cashier and i could not believe what i saw 5 months ago i had never had a bankroll over $100 then i scored a $500 tournament which i couldnot believe at that time. i dreamed of a 4 figure bankroll and now i checked my bankroll

$ 2248

fpps 1127

vpps this year 1513

everything 4 figures last year was the first time i had a milestone credit and this was in november

but now i have been cracking my hand what games i whould play i decided that the max buy in for now will be $11 but will try to play games smaller then that. but in the past i have crushed

45 mans turbo and non turbo

9 man sng turbo and non tubo

6 max hyper sattys (not crushing but not losing but really like to play those)

HU hyperturbo espescialy at the 3.50 level 

180 mans i dont have enough info but would like to try these tubo and non turbo

mtt's espacially in short stacked  turbo and time tournaments i have shown a good profit

at cash just barely could beat 2nl and more essy the 5nl level


what do you guys think i should playing with this bankroll and my previous result.


gl at the tables all of you
