The Chronicles Of Zwemnaar


Dcu Poker Society and Online Progress

By: zwemnaar @ 07:19 (EST) / 389 / Comment ( 0 )
I have been playing a good bit on-line since I have last posted. I was suprised to find I still had $7 in my Pokerstars account when I logged in. So I started playing on the 1c/2c tables. I would buy in to full ring games for $1.60. The standard at this level is extremely poor and I have been able to build my bankroll up to $24.70. I threw in a few 25c 90 man sit'n'goes, $2 heads up games and $1 double or nothing games to mix it up a bit too.

I joined D.C.U Poker Society this week and played the Monday night €10 freezeout. My god the play was atrocious! My starting table had two good players and the rest were fish. There were alot of Spanish and French and they were just so poor. My plan just just to sit back and wait for the goods. I got KK twice and by the first break I had doubled my starting stack to 6,000.

table then broke and we were at the final two tables. I had a massive dead stack to my immediate right which was like paradise! I got a few walks because of it! Cruised onto the final table where I once again had the privilege of having the dead stack sit beside me. Blinds were high now and I lost a big hand when i Had A3 clubs vs K5 clubs all in pre flop. That would have made me chip leader.

 But I recovered to make it to heads up,albeit with a severe chip disadvantage. I lost out a couple of hands later. I made €110 on the night plus a €10 bounty on a birthday boy (Conor O'Regan)! The society are having a freeroll on tomorrow with a prizepool of €700,so thats well worth playing! I'll keep you posted.
