Today is a bad day for me shoving. AK loses to AQ my AA beat 2 times and a bunch off donks that call any 2 cards hit 2 pair. Luck is due to swing back my way until then ill keep watching idiots and note take.

Changing a few things in my play to see if i can see more final table action. I have looked back at a few off these and see a couple off things that need tidying up.

Bring on a run off winnings please

(25)---#493530438---10/45---$0.00---$11.57

So after a review of my game i managed to pick up on a few things and fix them. This has a positive effect on my game as you can see i been running much deeper apart from that 80th finish as no one would have folded there.

25 games in and only 4 cashes but still $5.32 in profit.

What's to tidy up? Stacks go in you're almost 4-1 to scoop this pot. Run better next time ya donk.

Yep,the power of top 2 finishes in 45 man's and top 4 in 90 man's is not to be under-estimated.

And the trying to see as many last 2 tables as possible thing should be the first goal every time you load these up Bis. Trust me,you see a bunch of final 14's in the 45 mans and 18's in the 90 mans you WILL see you're numbers go up. Even the ones you get to that stage short stacked there will be the ones where you hit a little rush on your push/fold stacks and when that happens LATE,rather than EARLY,is when you can exploit it to a good result.

Keep grinding,good luck and good decisions.

Going pretty good so far!

Just one thing, the hand with aces you put on the first page. After those 2 limpers you should have bet like 150, with these blinds you know a lot of people will call just to see a flop and you really don't wanna be in a family pot with aces.

Well keep up the profits
