Darkwolves learns Sit and Go


No luck on Day 2

By: darkwolves @ 09:31 (EST) / 486 / Comment ( 1 )
A couple days ago I started playing 9 player micro sit and go tables, just to see how I could do.  I thought I played fairly well, but out of 4 games I only had one money finish.  So yesterday I played a few more to see if my luck would turn around.  I played 2 games but finished 5th both times.

So now I am faced with a problem.  Either I have been getting really unlucky, or I just suck at these micro sit and go tables.  So what do I do?  Do I keep playing and hope I improve or do I back off?

I think I might take a couple of days to play at the play money tables.  I got started there when I first opened my poker stars account and I now have more play money that I could ever hope to loose.  But I usually don't like to play for fake money.  Everyone plays differently and it is hard to really tell how good you are doing because people play so loose.

However, in this case, I decided to go back to play money so I can practice on my pre-flop playing strategy.  I figure that post flop, with everyone being so loose in the play money tables, there is really not a good chance that I will learn much, but I think I can still improve my pre-flop game.  Plus, if this is just a downswing, it will give me a chance to regroup and get my confidence back before I start risking more money.

On a slightly unrelated note, I played a PSO skill game.  I finsished 190ish of 1300ish, made some points.  But I was not really happy with the experience.  I understand wanting to play tight, and I am a pretty tight player myself, but everyone used their full clock every hand, even when they were just folding, which made it impossible to really pay attention. Plus, since this is my first month, I am the white star automatically, so even if I do well, i get nerfed.  I don't mind the practice, but I wish the game was a little more fun, and not just everyone trying to limp into the highest place they can.
