I need to try and find out how to beat these.. Card dead, finally get 8-8s with 12 big blinds.. I shove and called by A-7? And Ace on the flop? FFS.

Hey DJ!

I'm noticing a number of early exits in these. Try tightening up for the first 2-3 levels in them and then opeing up some. The earlier a player is in these, the more maniacs and calling stations that are out there that can luck into a hand to win.

Hang in there. Variance runs will happen to all of us. Keep playing your game and grinding thru them.

Hey John, Cheers for the comment.

The early exits have been coolers bar one. I called an all in with A-K suited when table lunatic shoved with Q-2..knew he was light. He hits a queen on the flop and 2 on turn.

Iv gotten the hang of them, and have been on the final table of the last few. Their an easy game..the variance is just killing me.

Hi DJ,

You've reached the final table in 25% of the games you've played so far. As you say, once you get the hang of the format it gets a bit easier.

It's going to be hard to get the hundo finished by the end of the month but I'm sure you'll be able to crush the February challenge if your doing one.

Best of luck!

Would this fine piece of cinematography have anything to do about poker.

Looking forward to it!

Good luck in your games.
