Playing above your bank roll


Grinding away again.

I have done pretty well this week actually.I've placed 10 times and my bankroll is moving back up again. I just calmed things down, tightened up A LOT. Play my blinds and decent pairs and A-K fold everything else that is junk. I was down to 3 yesterday on a single SNG and I had played two hands the whole game both of which were folded to me. Re-raise with medium hands one was A-J the other was 10-10. When the flop came rags. Everyone was raising my blinds as you should with a tight player. But if I raise someone's blind 800 and he has 1200 left I sure as hell wouldn't fold when he went all-in!

I was sitting 3rd with about 2000 chips, the 2nd place guy went all-in preflop with A-6 and was called by the chip leader with Kings. I was knocked out 2nd hand into heads-up with A-J against his K-8. I limped from small blind!! DOH!!!! I know better than that!  2nd place is fine..

Craziest hand this week raised preflop with 8-8 six people went all-in I folded instantly. Nobody had a decent pair or AK.  I think J-9 won with a flush. I got knocked out on the next table A-K against his Q-Q nothing came I was gone. 

Hope you are all doing well and keep grinding away there.
