OK, so I'm using my sunday million ticket that I won in the million club promo, and log my progress here.

Currently on 1st break, 25 minutes in, and I'm up to $12,720 in chips after hitting a straight and a full house to loose-ish players. So far so good.

Feel free to come rail. Might not play very entertainingly, but it might just keep me from donking about!

Good luck! Take it down!

I expect a $100 freeroll from you if you win this

2nd break now, just below 10k in chips.

Just in a hand with cada, I had 33, board was J7x, Cada led out. Was tempted to three bet and try taking it, but decided against it.

Cards dried up somewhat. Every time I've got one, I've missed the flop and if I C-bet or check, other guys came out with a huge bet that I can't justify calling.

going to try to last until at least the 2-hour mark when reg closes. Then onto (hopefully) a cash.

Well, ovalman won't be getting his freeroll.

Out. QJd vs AKo. Wish I could say it was entirely tilt, but alas not.

Until next time. Whenever that'll be.

I'd rather seen you cash mate than any freeroll.

Live that dream btw, some day you will.

Ty,oval.

Would of been great to have cashed, would of topped off a good day on the poker front, but if I'm honest, despite keeping the faith, I wasn't expecting it, first time in the ring, big field, lots of aggressive and experienced players etc.

That said though, it has at least been a small learning experience, and it's not every day you have a team pokerstars pro to your virtual left hand!

1) It's hard to cash

2) The game is the same for all

3) You can easily run into set v overset and your game's over.

Never let a stake bother you. You are on an equal field to all, just play your normal game and you will succeed. You've played this 1 time, come back after 100 and tell me how you do.

Never worry if you think you played well. Just concern yourself with mistakes (if any) you make. The pro to your right has the same chance as you, don't worry about him. Convince yourself you are as good or better than him.

Next time I'll deffo take a share if you offer one.
