I was gonna do what I always do on mondays and multiquote every post that needs a reply and repy individually but boy thats 5 pages worth of wellwishes :O
Thanks a lot to all the posts all the way from hand 1 to the final hand guys, its an amazing feeling to have so much support
even had to remove ppl from my ignore list to find out they suddenly became supportive so a lot of good stuff happened yesterday. funnily enough i think i was one of very few people who were involved/railing that took my bustout in a collected way. I might come off braggy but i can honestly say that all that mattered to me throughout the last weeks was sitting down and making good decisions all along.
i feel i played better and better and learned more and more all the way since this month started and it resulted in low volume high quality sessions throughout this weekend. before i get to the scoop final table i think an important result was my 6th final table in the $11 $3k gtd freezeout. i m really strting to love this MTT (800% ROI will do that for ya) but i was calm and made good decisions all along which since that one night here i busted in 3rd is a huge improvement. and i ran godlike in it everytime i played it haha
then the scoop run was just unreal. tbh, pokerwise the scoop was probably the most boring MTT i ve ever played. i just got QQ+ AK in against worse from start to finish. I was top5 stack after 1.5 hours. i stayed there for ages. i spent 4 hours just folding. sure i did make a few nice resteals, using my tight image to basically always get folds when i had bluffs and then ran hot to get a good hand vs the same player and get them to spazz their chips to me.
I started day2 with 14bb and said to myself all that i wanted was to make good decisions and i d be happy with whatever outcome. realistically with 69 remaining and me only having 14bb i thought the chance of me binking this were 1-2% and the chance of FTing it were around 10%-15% so i was going in that thing with a freeroll mindset. not a careless one at all - i was zoned in right from the start- but a surprisingly calm one. I did celebrate all the allins like a caveman but ithin seconds i shut back up and focussed on the next hand which i am really happy about.
yesterdays score marks not only the biggest MTTcash/score/day/month for me but it also was a loooongtime goal/dream of mine to final table a major pokerstars MTT. few better times to make that happen than in the first fulltime SCOOP i have ever played. I m really stoked about the score and glad to have such awesome investors (d7o1d1s0, shipit2kg and azn1nvas1ion ) that put their trust into me and made this possible! I m more than happy to share this all with you
oh, and i finally made my way into the pokerstarsblog (dance), obv a goal that was gonna come with making a ft like this but since b4 i turned 18 i was reading that all the time its a big accomplishment nonetheless
i will have to sort out some paperwork with stars in order to get my shiipments to my backers but that should be handled soon i guess (never thought i d have this typ of issue lol) so yea all things considered i m in a really great place right now, mentally and financially. pretty much happy withevrything right now
quitting my stake but gonna continue grinding donkaments hard till the month ends. once u make it so far i guess u just get that hunger for the outright win so gonna keep trying!
awesomest screenshot ITT so far:
awesomest pic involving me posted by pokerstarsblog.com:
think thread [x] saved so brutti's sis, if u re reading this, no need to post here, just pm me instead
thx again to all ppl who supported me throughout the last few days and haha thx again for the positive ratings
yup mainly gonna play on my own at least, gonna keep selling action to $109+ MTTs tho. will figure out all the logistics over the next days (when my hangover isnt that severe) and post ITT.
total liferoll atm is about $16k or sth which is a huge peak
tlking of hangover, it was my roommates birthday yesterday (anybody who railed the f2t on sunday it was the guy who offered but also made me a cup of tea at 4 am ) and he said no thx to a chick he had a date with to rail my final table run yesterday. on his birthday. what a hero. (and he s old as fk too )
so we went out afterwards to celebrateeverything and its fair to say we all got our fair share. i got him a lapdance for good measure and we all had a great time:
Even bigger fan now you took the finish result so well/positively as opposed to whingey/what ifs. Look at the positives not the negatives, hope you get more runs like this in near future
haha sweet to read after being a longtime fanboi of yours

I m always trying to make a point of not regretting stuff that happened in the past and only trying to use the good to become better going forward. but i guess if i ended up busting that thing having made a big mistake i d be taking it differently (as evidenced a few days back when i made that 3rd place finish). i will review that whole mtt soon tho but i can only come up with one single hand i wasnt 100% happy about so that makes me happy. pretty much the only thing we actually have control over in this crazy game is our decisions right?
