Tell me how I can make it through 4750 people to win a ticket on the Facebook league, but I can't even hit ITM in PSO this month.... Sorry, just soooooo frustrating and I needed to vent.

Any suggestions....I am trying different things this month and opening up my play a bit to try to learn new strategies, but it's still frustrating to say the least.

And I just finished 198th out 5014 people. Yes, I know it wasn't a 1st place finish or a final table. But you sure as hell don't sit through that many people without having a decent stronghold on the understanding of how to play.

Yes, REALLY frustrated....lol

I think I need some TEQUILA.

if you were hitting itm last month with your old strategy why change it??/

maybe play a bit more aggresive when the blinds are cheap so if you lose a pot it wont hurt to bad but other than that as i said if you hit itm last month DONT change your strategy

Thanks Ant. I think the hardest thing about it all is you try to improve on what you know to become a better player and it comes back to bite ya in the ass.

You're right though, I should just go back to the same old same old and try to run with it. I just finished the 3pm PSO and I, for the most part, went back to my old play and at least finished with a couple positive points.

I guess now it's just a matter of clawing my way up to at least top 1000 to earn a few bucks.

if you want to break top 1000 in the league i would suggest shadowing a front runner in the league to see how they go about aiming for itm

maybe byron or cote would be good to shadow especially as there play will tighten to try not to get a minus with being so high in points

Cool, thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely try to watch how they play and get myself back where I need to be. I mean I definitely don't expect to be in the top ten right now, but I do expect a little more of myself to at least finish in a money position....LOL

may i also add that the drop in the itm finish from 13% to 10% has had a big affect on everybodys itm finishes i bet..

heres an example last month by the 15th day in the pso i had 18 itm finishes this month by that same date i will have 8

so you see how my TAG grinds worked last month there not this month so effectively so seeing a few flops early on when you can get a cheap limp would be a good idea

Yes, the 10% has definitely affected people. I think I was just starting to feel no matter what I did, I was doing it wrong. Tried playing like the donks for a few games and I definitely couldn't do that right...LOL and it felt so wrong playing like that. So I have been spanked thoroughly for making the attempt...LOL
