Waiting for my Premier League Month to begin

I decided to go for a Premier League spot. Now let's see how it goes.

Hi All


This was the weirdest final table I have played and wanted to save these 8 hands that made it so easy.

Well it was a pleasure folding my way into second, starting as the short stack............ Total autopilot mode,   and  .......... well check it out and you will see for yourselves.

I'm also saving these hands for "mindset" purposes.  For me it is proof of how many players there are out there who just don't think properly, especially in the later stages of the tournament.

I mean these guys didn't play like this earlier,  they had huge stacks, so many shorties at the table and the pay jumps etc..... or maybe I'm being overcritical.

So I'm saving these eight hands to remind myself that the tournament isn't over until the final hand.


Regardless of the small buy in (see tournament details at the bottom of this post),  I just thought this was a great example of how to "ladder-up" by being a spectator when you need to be, and a player when you have to be. (That last sentence probably makes no sense - but I hope after watching you will understand it).

(13 places paid in total)
