I'm watching Ovalman - good luck - nice run to the FT and good stack at the moment 250K and close to the chip leader

Observer chat is turned off 'for the duration' - so just take it down for PSO!

Cheers Ed, I'm not a great 5 Crad draw player but I think my STT experience will massively help.

I had a chat with Billyblue on another table so we sort of know each other.

I don't see anyone that scares me btw, most are calling stations.

Took a while for anyone to bust the FT - but looks like you have over half the chips in play now.

Great stuff - keep it going!

Nobody UK so hopefully no PSO but I'm stealing with position and playing a STT strategy, I'm not stealing with rags but then again I don't know what an average hand is. My opponents are playing very tight and I'm taking advantage of it.

I don't see any bad players but nobody wants to take charge so I'll be the bully.

I have no idea how single draw 5-card draw games hand strengths change at 6-max and even more so as you get towards HU at final table. Have only ever played it in the freerolls.

Whatever you are doing it seems to be working!

I was crushed 3 handed btw, both opponents knew my game and outplayed me.

Still $37 helps my bankroll and top 3 is always what I aim for.

Retrospect, I was aggressive throughout the final table and these 2 players kept in the background. They let me be the stooge which is a perfect STT strategy. When they became aggressive I didn't know how to handle it so fair play to the 2 players that beat me. I couldn't adapt to the aggression when it came back to me.

I think I played well throughout and maybe could have changed things when we were final 6 handed.

I'm happy with the result.

It's a great result Ovalman!

You gave yourself a chance to win it and a top 3 spot in any format is great.

Nice br boost.

Well played.

Neither can I!

I played a STT strategy, at one stage I had over half the chips of all the table by bullying but my bullying caught up wit me by the 2 that beat me and I didn't know where I stood.

I made a few bad calls at the end but I thought I played well throughout.
