Hit By The Deck


October-Working Towards A Goal

By: pre01 @ 08:01 (EDT) / 1 / Comment ( 0 )
I started playing in the PSO in July and ended at 1306 in the league. August was better with a finish at 761, and September improved to 736. Right now, I'm at 125 for October, but it is early in the month and I've only played three tourneys. I had my best ever finish in the first tourney I played this month, too - 16th. Looking to get to the final table soon. One thing I discovered is not to play when I'm tired, distracted, or under the weather. All make for bad play. Sure, there are 5 or 6 opportunities to play per day, but I'd rather play once or twice a day and mix in some SnG's or cash game play. I only have so much time to devote to poker and I want to be focused when I play. I've already accumulated my 20 VPPs, so I'm good there. My goal has been to get into the top 100 of league players and that gets harder as the month progresses. Early on you may have 3500-4500 players, but by the last day of the month you surely will see 9500+. My standing right now at 125 is the best I've ever been, the previous being 248. I definitely feel that the PSO league is making me a better player, but to be honest, there are a lot of poor players in the league, too. I notice that the average knock out rate in a tourney is 9-12 players a MINUTE for the first two hours. Is that because it's a 'free roll'? I think that's a big part of it. Go for broke and sign up for another try later in the day. Has anybody had great success with that? I'd like to know. See you at the tables.
