IT WILL NEVER BE COOL, ask the guy in the WSOP ME how it feels to get 10th for 700k or smth when there are over 8 million for first!

if you're not feelin that way, you cant be serious here!


gg blakk with the score, more to come if u stay focussed and bring your Agame!

gl in the future sessions.
i dont even know if i am in a spot to credibly discuss this as i probly sound like a whiny bitch lately but since i honestly think my mindset is different i beg to differ (from experience) esp with the main event part.

obv the sum of money is fairly close to irrelevant as disappointment and pleasure will be felt about 7k as they will about 70/700/7000k and most of us will likely get such opportunities less than say 4 times in their entire carreers however thats what maes those things fairly easy to deal with is that you say to urself before every single starting day that u expect urself to play the best poker u can, u focus and then whatever happens happens. then if u bust u cant be mad cuz then u got the absolute max of what u coulda gotten that day. least thats what worked for me with that $215 scoop. i remember i took a shower before that and said meh i m short i could bust first hand lets just focus and not spazz.

think the tilt/sadness lasted about 3 minutes after i busted. <--- yet if i were to write down my feelings RIGHT after i busted i d be fml

finally managed to bink my first mtt on .fr (the smallest mtt i play on there but still)

apparently the only way to do it is to make the ft with 200 bb



also got 4th in the $16.50 360 cap making back to back FTs and making one meh play there to lose a massive pot. will review later or tomorrow rly not sure about that spot

and FTbubbled the $22 6max deep that i got 4th in yday after losing two massive flips there. softest MTT i ve ever played i think.

back tomorrow

funny day. funny things those MTTs. cuz even when u make tons of money the feeling of not winning mtts is a funny one

happy with my play throughout today tho and obv happy with the $$$ i made just sem to run hot b4 FTs and abd when i get there

#1:


A5s<K7o for decent stack 4 handed

#2:


AJ<33 aipf J44r ....3 to get HU with even stacks tehn A5s<KQo to get same stack as 2nd place guy

3:


was really tired and the shortest stack at the point where we realized that avg stack is about 65bbs and this mtt would take ages to complete so decided to chop it 5ways.

decent day, back at it tomorrow

haha yea no kidding although that graph has liek 15k huhypers in there. check out the first page of this thread to see that if u want. only been playing mtts and mttsngs since this year

-----------


locked up a pretty cool deal that allows me to play all 109s-162s that run during the time i tend to play (starting to reg around 6-8pm my time). big shoutout to azn1nvas1on, shipit2kg, zazano and flipity for being such cool dudes

obv the first day they buy shares of me i run like the sun in the first Hot €100 i ve ever played and got 3rd in it for €1260. again lost a flip to get HU vs a fish but owell inb4 big weekend imo!


looking to play all the majors tomorrow and sunday on .fr and .com so should be fun

one would think winning my last MTT would bring me into the green for the day...

nope, still dropped a bunch cuz bricked everything with the frenchies. pretty happy with my level of focus towards the end tho considering i ve run like utter bs all day and lost 4 big stacks with top two deep in mtts that were bigger. decided to cut the night a bit short so that i can grind a decent sunday tomorrow so stopped loading around 3am rather than 7am.



feels good to bink a 6max mtt considering i v been close sooo often. probly played the longest HU match i have ever played. both jsut kept coming back but in the end my patience paid off. props to the guy i had tagges as a weaker player. gave me a lot of headache wrt adjusting to him headsup.

gn and gla tomorrow

thats pretty much my entire sunday grind:

Hero (UTG+1): t16064 M = 5.74
MP1: t13646 M = 4.87
MP2: t92940 M = 33.19
CO: t14915 M = 5.33
BTN: t26765 M = 9.56
SB: t94667 M = 33.81
BB: t20056 M = 7.16
UTG: t47947 M = 17.12

Pre Flop: (t2800) Hero is UTG+1 with A A
1 fold, Hero raises to t2400, 1 fold, MP2 raises to t4899, 1 fold, BTN raises to t26640 all in, 2 folds, Hero calls t13539 all in, MP2 calls t21741

Flop: (t72019) T 9 7 (3 players - 2 are all in)

Turn: (t72019) 8 (3 players - 2 are all in)

River: (t72019) 4 (3 players - 2 are all in)

Final Pot: t72019
Hero shows A A (a pair of Aces)
MP2 shows J J (a straight, Seven to Jack)
BTN shows K A (high card Ace)
MP2 wins t21402
MP2 wins t50617



had 5 potential daysavers going on in the $55 6max (bubbled it), the $11c (KK into AA on FTbubble), the late $11r (spazzed my stack away in a spot that turned out to be rubbish) the $8.80 6max turbo (top two down the drain to bust in 4th) and the beauty up there which was the FT of the $33 3k.

played really well teh whole day had ridiculous amounts of chips in tons of mtts then kept busting in absurd spots. couple months back i m sure i d have tilted my a$$ off but pretty happy i kept my cool throughot hte day and kept loading till 5am or so. back at it tomorrow

read the goddamn thread.

Spoiler:
tbh i guess the feeling of deep runs in mtts is addicting to a point where i simply find grining cash to be boring. i guess that sums it up rly. plus the fact that i have a much higher productivity playing mtts AND the fact that its by far and away teh softest form of poker these days.

fair point that i could have gone on to crush midstakes if i sat down with the aforementioned guys. but i m benefiting a ton from knowing them this way as well so its not like i m a ****** who passes up big opportunities

Nice runs m8. U were at my table more than a cpl times this sess. Think its only like my 3rd time ever playing a sess at this time. Saw u regging almost everything. Gave u a shout even in 27 but u prolly dont keep focus on chat tab. What time to what time do u usually grind?

rly? today i didnt even notice you :S i remember u getting on my nerves on sunday in the $55 50k tho haha

I generally have the following routine:

-wake up
-make breakfast and lunch
-eat breakfast
-grind regging for about 8-9 hours.

no precise times as my sleep pattern gets so thoroughly fkd regularly that i end up starting at 1am one week 6pm the next and 2pm the one after. last few days i started regging around 9pm ish tho. not sure what i ll do next few days either. i find both peak and offpeak games to be awesome in their own way so rly doesnt matter when i play
