Re: $50-$1000 4 Tabling Micro to Low Limit SNG's

Played some more $2.25 STT Turbos last night. Ran pretty bad and lost around $8.00.

Horrible day today. Watched some HUSNG videos as study material. Played 7 matches, lost 5. Two on horrid suckouts.

Swapped to MTT's for the remainder of the evening.

Two FT's on $2-180's. One fifth place finish. One second place. Two suckouts heads up for the second place. A7os lost to A5 suited (flush and my 7 was a blocker). Then AQ to Q5 to finish off my last 50k chips, both AIPF.

Final tabled the only $4.40-135 of the night with a 7th place finish again.

A total of 34 games played this evening and roughly 20 matches last night.

Overall a positive evening, but felt like absolute crap. Got sucked out on while dominating more times than I care to remember tonight. Puts me in a bad mood, but I must say, that looking beyond that, I'm happy with my play. Despite being pissed about bad luck, I was still making the right +EV plays at the tables.

So I totally lied about not giving BR updates. I mean, how lame would it be if I did it up til here and then left em out for the final push? Things are looking on track to hit my goal of $1,000 very soon. Still can't really decide what aspect of my game I want to focus on after I hit it. I'm on the fence that splits about 12 different ways. Thinking a good mix of HUSNG's with lots of study for heads up play, some more MTT SNG's. I don't think I will dabble with PLO just yet as I have a ton more to learn before I jump into any meaningful play.

Anyways, tl;dr, BR updates below. Initial challenge $50-$1000 ($950 profit required) is 92.11% complete.

Session NET (including last night) $24.57
FTP BR: $370.51
Stars BR: $554.62
Total Roll: $925.13

Re: $50-$1000 4 Tabling Micro to Low Limit SNG's

Uber BR nit...lol... But in all seriousness, it is about time to move up. The $2-180s on stars will stay the same for awhile. I've been playing the $6 HUSNGs as I am new to them. The $2.25 STT Turbos were kinda an experiment as I'm used to playing reg speed. Will likely move up to the 6.50 turbos for STTs from now on. I've also been mixing in the $4.40-135 turbo rush tourney on tilt as of late. Will be looking to add some 45s to my game soon as well.

I'll be using a 150 bi rule for the 45 mans, and continue to use a 200 bi rule on any thing with a field greater than 45 players. Will stick to my 100 bi rule for STTs, but would like to get a decent sample at the 6.50s before moving up.

Prefer to keep my chance of gusto negligible and try to avoid moving down stakes if I run bad. I probably should be a bit more aggressive and actually try to make some money though. LOL.

Lastly, will stick to the 6.25 turbo HUSNG til I know I'm a winning player over at least a 150 game sample.

Re: $50-$1000 4 Tabling Micro to Low Limit SNG's

Once again, tonight was a wowzer. I literally busted 40 tournaments without a single cash. Was running 9 $2-180's at a time with 3 $3.30-90 KO's. Started playing at 6PM CST currently, 11PM.

So, I went all these games without a cash, then I managed to FT one of the $3.30-90's and managed to ship the ****ing thing. Put me back into a better mood and about 45 minutes later, I ship a $2-180.

Thanks to some run good and good playing if I may say so myself (lol shovefest), I managed to earn a decent profit on the night. The night is not over as I am still running in my final $2-180.

Hoping to FT this 180 if I can avoid some run bad.

Current stack is 53k.

Will update BR and final status of this $2-180 shortly.

Re: $50-$1000 4 Tabling Micro to Low Limit SNG's

Damn. Went out 7th. Shoved 15 BB's on the button with AT and BB happened to pick up KK and that's all she wrote.

Net on the night was $73.11. BR updates are below. Thought for sure I was going to finish - $50+ so a hell of a good night if I may say so.

Session Net: $73.11
FTP BR: $410.63
Stars BR: $587.63
Total Roll: $998.26

But oh wait, add in my step tickets on FTP and we have:

FTP BR: $425.93
Stars BR: $587.63
Total Roll: $1,013.56

Looks like that'll be it for this thread folks !

It's been fun, I would continue but I have a sick feeling that if I am to break that 1k mark being $1.74 away, that I may have the sickest downswing I've ever see. Tonight was just a taste.

Look for my $1000-2500 thread to be popping up shortly. Need to re-evaluate my game a bit and decide what it is I want to focus on for this next goal.

Thanks for reading and god bless =).

P.S. 95% of the way to a $10 stellar reward as well... I almost forgot. Pictures below!
