better luck

By: pebbles-ange @ 17:06 (EST) / 75 / Comment ( 4 )



oFirst off I would like to thank people for their feedback I was very tired this morning when I wrote up my last post so I didn't add everything to it,

So I made a deposit of £8 which converted to $11.75 and have been playing 10cent tournaments and sit and go's and oh my god I have been having the worst luck ever!

So far I have cashed in no tournaments just not getting anywhere people keep getting lucky and I keep missing my draws, still just got to keep going I am sticking to my rules though and staying at low stakes!

On the plus side I have won a school pass ticket 2 actually so I am attempting a go at getting a ticket to play in the Big Bang freeroll, fingers crossed I am currently playing in that tournament at the moment I have had one rebuy for 30cents in it but that's all I'm buying for it! also I have a ticket for the priveledge (please excuse my spelling) freeroll so I will hopefully make some little profits from there, fingers crossed.

The hands I'm really kicking myself so far today are these:

A 10cent sit and go and I still say I made the right decision the hand went heads up pre-flop

Seat 1:  (2510 in chips) is sitting out
Seat 2:  (3091 in chips)
Seat 3: pebbles-ange (4168 in chips)
Seat 4: (10031 in chips)
Seat 5: (2120 in chips)
Seat 6:  (8725 in chips)
Seat 7:  (5300 in chips)
Seat 8:  (2426 in chips)
Seat 9:  (1865 in chips)
7: posts small blind 60
8: posts big blind 120

so i had that post ready for a couple of days but as it turned out i had a turn of luck, after reading through peoples comments and thoughts i started watching some videos on here and more training sessions. I feel like this has definately helped my game. I  decided because I couldn't aford to deposit any more funds yet to play in a couple of games for fun until i could deposit a good enough bank roll to get me started properly (around the 60 dollar mark at least) so i played a couple of tournaments not realy getting anywhere,so i decdided to play a 30 minute $1.10 time tournament and I finished in fifth place winning $13.01! I was very proud and whilst playing that game i was in a 360 player fifty cents sit and go and i couldnt believe it i won! so i added another $30 to my bankroll so i am going to keep trying until i get my bankrol to a high enough level to play to get a decent amount or a good bankroll.
