Poker - A Source of Income

Hi, Poker buddies, here I am again after a long gap of time. Last month I had posted about a terrible bad beat with AK suited in hand and lost the Pot. I was hovering around at rank 1200, I was trying hard but could not improve but deterioted further in ranking and was outside rank 2000, hence could not get promotion to next level. This month its a different story.

At the starting of this month when Elementary tournament started there was one aim in my mind, come what may I would not go All-in when somebody goes All-in. I decided that I would play further after seeing the flop even with monster hands because monster hands can also be bad beaten with trash cards. I would put in my chips only if I am gun shot sure that I am going to win the pot. 

I also decided to survive and hang in there as much time as possible with whatever chips I have even if losing or winning chips, I would play slow and hang in there for maximum time, wait patiently to hit with good hands. I had a goal, a target that I would enter first 1000 ranking. When I hit a rank inside top 1000 ranks, I put my target to be inside 900 rank, after that in 800 rank after that  in 500 rank after that in 400 rank, after that I had hit 337 rank, then I decided to go further and hit inside 200 rank, at that stage I finished in at 24th spot on 14th June, I had hit career best 163 rank, I am trying to improve that ranking further as I want to go within top 100 ranking, from there I will try for top 50, then top 25, then top 10. YES!!!!! But, but, buttttttt, today when I was cruising smoothly and safe, did you know what happened??? ONE BIG BAD BEAT!!!!! 

With pocket Aces I lost the pot and was left with 771 chips gasping for breath, with 949 players left out of 10,000.  Please refer to the following hand to see how I was beaten with the other guy having K-J and me with AA.

Check out this hand I just played on @PokerStars in tournament "The League - Elementary - $10 Added" … #BOOMPlayer

After that hand somehow I gathered some chips and lost my way after some time and ended at 514th place. That's today's story! 

I might go within top 100 ranking today. You can check my ranking.
