Yikes, I had trouble winning tickets at satellite tournaments.

I easily earned my ticket at SNGs but my nightmare started at MTTs.I found MTTs dreadfully long just to earn a simple $3 worth ticket and I always found myself losing focus.

Currently, my net profit is ***

================================================== =========

FIRST GOAL

By the end of Micro Million series,

My conservative goal is to have net profit of over $25.
My optimistic goal is to have net profit of over $75


I am pretty confident with my skills. When there are large prizes involved, I tend to concentrate more then $3 ticket satellite tourneys.

Anyways, here are my list of tourneys I will be participating


  • MicroMillions-001: $0.11+R NL Hold'em [Hyper-Active], $20K Gtd, [13/03/2014 @ 13:00:00], Tournament ID: 872136595 <CANCELLED>
  • MicroMillions-002: $1+R NL Hold'em [3x-Turbo], $150K Gtd, [13/03/2014 @ 14:00:00], Tournament ID: 872136630 <CANCELLED>
  • MicroMillions-003: $3.30 NL Hold'em [6-Max], $50K Gtd [13/03/2014 @ 15:00:00], Tournament ID: 872136604 <CANCELLED>
  • MicroMillions-008: $4.40 NL Hold'em [ Chance], $25K Gtd, [14/03/2014 @ 05:00:00], Tournament ID: 872136612 <MISSED>
  • MicroMillions-023: $1+R NL Hold'em [3x-Turbo], $125K Gtd, [15/03/2014 @ 16:30:00], Tournament ID: 872136629 <CANCELLED>
  • MicroMillions-024: $2.20 NL Hold'em, $15K Gtd, [15/03/2014 @ 19:30:00], Tournament ID: 872136630 <Zero Winning>
  • ADDED MicroMillions-027: $1+R NL Hold'em [3x-Turbo, Sunday Spark Special Edition], $40K Gtd, [16/03/2014 @ 04:00:00], Tournament ID: 872136634 <Zero Winning>
  • ADDED MicroMillions-033: $2.20+R NL Hold'em [-Turbo], $75K Gtd , [16/03/2014 @ 16:30:00], Tournament ID: 872136641 <Zero Winning>
  • ADDED MicroMillions-040: $5.50 NL Hold'em [6-Max, Turbo, Knockout], $40K Gtd, [17/03/2014 @ 12:30:00], Tournament ID: 872136651 <CASHED $23.53 + $9 knock outs>
  • ADDED MicroMillions-042: $5.50 NL Hold'em, $50K Gtd, [17/03/2014 @ 16:30:00], Tournament ID: 872136653 <CASHED $46.59>
  • MicroMillions-099: $3.30 NL Hold'em [Turbo], $30K Gtd, [23/03/2014 @ 18:30:00], Tournament ID: 872136809 <Zero Winning>

...total of 7 tournaments. I wish I can participate at least 12 but oh well, better luck next time.

If I manage to win more tourneys from "MicroMillions Special Live Training Specials" tickets, I will add more events to my list.

Tomorrow is a Mission Week - "Easy": All-in Shootout. Wish me luck. If I manage to bink some cash, again those money will be used for MM series.


================================================== =========

Second GOAL

Aside from MM series, I am planning to enter premier league. My current league rank is 1713 (Score: 1658). I need to make it to top 500, which seems doable, but a lot of work with no immediate benefit. Also, I hope to make top 400 three times consecutively, so I can earn my ticket to Big Bang.


================================================== =========


What I am trying to achieve...

You might say money. Money is important but it is not my main goal here sadly. I can just play SNG or cash game, which offers me steady stream of dollars. I am doing this to make my name known. Increase my brand value within our community so that future stakers will be willing to put their money in front of me. In future, hopefully people trust my words have accountability, etc

I hope all my March challenges go well. I will post my results to keep this updated.

If I buy direct tickets to my MM list, the cost is $15.31. I barely managed to break-even sadly.

I hope to add two more events, but we will have to see I guess.

I did not get to play PSO league at all these past few days. I missed one tourney because I misread the time schedule. I made some money at MM event #40 , but I was really disappointed at my performance. I could have been top 50 easily but stopped thinking later in the afternoon. Overall, I played much better at events I did not make money. I will add more events to my list whenever I feel like it. All the list above is tentative and may subject to change.

I was hoping to make it to final table for MM event #42. I could not be satisfied with below $300 prize considering the time I spent, which was six hours and half. Nevertheless, I failed my goal to bink money.

How I got busted:

I played 5 more tournaments, but I will not revise my list above. I busted all 5 tournaments, unfortunately. My performance overall is poor and not happy about it.

I will postpone my 2nd goal also. I need to adjust my game play a lot, I feel.
