My poker journey (or My road to millions).


Guess it's time to update again.

Well, some unfortunate beats (not really bad beats, per say) and bad play and I'm down to nothing in my online bankroll. And, poor planning galore, I'm playing in a live tourney at the same time I should be playing in a round two satellite for the Sunday million.  

Here's the set up.  I won a round one fpp satellite to the Sunday Million.  Cool, except that today I went down to the Poker Room to play in a $65 satellite to a $550 satellite for the Chad Brown Main event ($5000.00 buy in).  Well, I won and didn't realize that I would have to play in it tomorrow at 1 pm.  It will take first priority, and I'll see what happens for the online satellite (probably just a waste).  I wish I could unregister until next Sunday.  Oh well.  Over all I played well (in the live tourney), and I only had all my chips in the pot once.  Heads up, K-2 spades vs pocket Q's.  I pushed after a raise for over 1/2 my chips because I realized that there hadn't been a king on the board over the last 3 hands or so, so I was hoping it was time.  The gamble payed off, and I pretty much didn't look back.  This will be the biggest buy in tourney by far that I have ever played in.  I'll let ya'll know.
