Instant Bankroll - Start playing poker for free!

Sunday, July 22, 2007 

Broke the losing streak but I hate this game.

So I finally got to a final table and finished 7th, but I made 2 really bonehead plays as the chip leader and out I went shortly thereafter.

I got in the money again today and I need to start reading this zen stuff because I am frustrated beyond belief.

I just cashed again and busted out to this:

Yes I'm still here

Not running well as of late.

I snapped the sit and go downswing and then just kind of hovered around even.

While I liked the return I was getting on the $16 turbos, I go to the point where I just don't like the grind anymore. I realized that I needed another challenge and what better challenge than multi table tournaments.

I have won a few MTTs with 30 to 50 people but never anything bigger than that.

So I've started playing more large MTTs and 180 man sit and goes.

I am continuously getting deep only to lose all my chips near the button, usually with the best hand. I'm on another downswing though and haven't cashed in my last 20 or so. My last 3 180 man tourneys I've finished in the mid 20s when top 18 get paid.

No worries though. I know I'll get deep sooner or later and the bankroll is still doing ok.

If I ever start running well again I'll post more!

  • PLO = Pot Limit Omaha
  • CP = Crazy Pineapple

  • MP = Middle Position

  • CO = CutOff (one before the button)
