Willhebes personal 2nl - 100nl and beyond hopefully!


Been a good day

By: willhebe @ 19:37 (EDT) / 292 / Comment ( 2 )

Been fairly steadily winning on 5NL so started out taking a shot at some 10NL cash games on the ordinary tables. Picked up $25 on the day.

Decided I wanted to play the Micromillions main event and had 1500FPPs so was undecided whether to play some sattelites or buyin direct. Decided to play 4x 350FPP SNGs. Qualified 1st try so may give it a go at the sunday million FPP sats tomorrow.

Ended the day with our usual home game to decide on sattelite tickets for the bankroll co-op. Also played a new one with the idea of buying in direct to some big/bigger tournies. (See the bankroll co-op thread in the challenges and battlegrounds forum).

Was frustrated how I completely blew my chances in the first of these. Already been lucky to suck out on AK with AT then the tightest player in our group suddenly decided to limp the button. Uh oh I thought here comes AA. But 4 handed I didn't think I could fold AJ and sure enough he had AA. Annoying to have read it right and still made the wrong play.

But lucked my way to the win in the 2nd of the home games to round off a pretty good day. I hate playing heads up always feel at a disadvantage. But eventually got lucky A2 vs KT then won JT vs AX next hand as well to win.

Been a pretty frustrating series in the micromillions. Spent pretty much 1/2 my bankroll on sats to tournaments. Not content with taking a shot at the odd one or two. Played about 15 MM events and countless other big/hot 5.50/8.80/11 hoping for a big score but best has been about $45 in the first sunday storm MM event. Played far too many tourneys outside my bankroll limits in the last week or two.

Found that my cashes increased after watching Chewme1's 3 bet frenzy session in the week. Been really helpful in building a stack early on and through the bubble. Just seem to mess up my gameplan once ITM. Had a pretty big stack in a couple of the MM events only to bluff it away once the bubble burst.

Before the MM series had about $450. Now after a nice $50 bonus for passing 5000VPPs yesterday have $278. But it has been some pretty wild fun at times.

Anyway heres hoping for a good deal more luck tomorrow in the tourneys and then back to the usual cash game grind during the week. Tourneys are just so hard to do well in need to get my bankroll back on track with the cash games before I take any more shots at the big ones. Well except for the sunday storm which I seem to cash in about 50% of the time. And tomorrows Main event but I got in that pretty much for free right? And the big $5.50 that I'll be playing for the bankroll co-op.  I'll think of some more excuses later for playing outside my limits. I set my responsible gaming limits to $5 for tournies ages ago but that doesn't stop me satteliting in! 

Gl to all PSOers.
