Well I am going to play at least some of the 3.30 buy-ins for NL. I have registered for the 3.30 this evening and thinking I will play the 3.30 rebuy on Saturday to start.

Nice work Paddy. I came about the same (418th in 31k field) in the 3.30 6 max. Surprised me how so late in the tournament there were still some rather bad players so definitely a chance to get some good money if you run good.

Clicked the promotion to play a few of these. So far only played two, a $3.30 and a $2.20 no cash so far.

May try the $11 Storm. Or a few more baby ones.

They're good fun, managed 4 cashes so far. 129th in a 10k field is my best so far. The fields are also incredibly soft - even in that final 1% running deep there was a lot of really bad play. If you can dodge the coolers its a good chance to win.

Finished 13th for $414. Was in 12th and got it in with J7s in the SB. Called by the BB with A4s. He hits a 4 on the flop, I hit a 7 on the turn, and he rivers trips with the 4. C'est la vie. Great run.

Thanks Paddy. Always tempting to wonder what if when an extra half hour takes you to $11k! I see from the leaderboard you're doing really well too.

Sounds good Paddy, nice run!

After my 13th place, I bubble the next tournament when really I should been a bit more conservative. Got it in with a straight and villain had a 3 card flush. Annoyed with myself as we were about 100 spots from the money and I had a top 20% stack.

And the $4 1R1A just now, again I just bubbled. A top 50% stack, UTG raises and I have aces. I 3-bet, he 4-bet jams and shows JJ. Unfortunately the J comes on the river and again I'm out when I should have had a decent score and leaderboard points. I guess I'd never fold aces there and it's just a cooler. The positive thing though is it shows the field is soft. On the bubble with JJ he should never go all in: a top 50% stack is not calling it off with TT or lower!

Hi PSO, have you played in any MicroMillions events yet? How did you do? Are you planning to play in any events?

I have registered for 4 events, i played my first one today - Omaha Hi/Lo, i played really well - finished 147th or something. I 5 x my money, so a good result. Ended up getting beat by a donk who risked his life chasing a low draw..and he hit a straight to beat my top trips.

Iam playing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I will keep you updated at my progress.

Good luck everyone at the MicroMillions.

I just want to say it has been a great MicroMillions, i look forward to next years already!
