I failed to knock out a PSO Team Member

By: aznhaxor @ 07:34 (EST) / 258 / Comment ( 1 )

Hello followers (if any) ,


I played Sunday Special - PSO Bounty! with ChewMe's live training session. Speaking truthfully, I had no idea there was a play money tourney, also. I accidently clicked the cash tourney and carried my facepalm. I felt I am still a weak poker player (a fish) compare to all the PSO veterans. For your information, I only started playing poker seriously less than month ago. Before joining the PSO community, I only knew the hand ranking and that was it! Also, $0.65 was a huge buy-in under my bankroll managment. I had to focus, focus and focus hard. On top of that, my whole goal was to win, win and win.

... and I came 6th! Oopa!


I would admit I had a good run. Nevertheless, my reads were insanely accurate. I felt many PSO members were tight and I could exploit them easily, but I, also, made sure to avoid any good players. My skill had been growing exponentially and soon I would be stamping cash every second (hopefully).

"Just Give me five months" = Bold Statement


Tournament Info

PokerStars Tournament #865975227, No Limit Hold'em
Buy-In: $0.50/$0.10/$0.05 USD

Total Prize Pool: $30.50 USD
Tournament started 2014/02/16 15:00:00 ET

I purposely slow-played my hand because I was after his bounty. Also, not many worst combination could happen on the turn or the river. I wanted to make sure he had deep enough skin, so he could not bail. Mission accomplished. (I knocked out 3 PSO members in total)
