Thanks guys, got 7th for around 4k, can't complain too much as I had AQ>QQ early on at the FT and obviously ran good in general to get there. Made some other FTs today too (6th in 54 turbo on Party, 4th in 26ko on FTP, 2nd in Hot 20 on .fr) so a really nice day in terms of profit, and it's not even Sunday yet! Gonna hit the sack and wake up bright and early in time for the even-earlier-than-usual Big 33. Thanks for railing!

Thanks guys. Feels good to keep making FTs, but the rungood will end sometime. Gotta be prepared for it.

juicestain, my biggest score overall is the 21k for winning the B109 in November, but this year it's 18k for chopping the Hot 75.

GL for Sunday all!

I was railing you in the big 162, congrats on the deep run. How did the 888 tourney end for you?

Came 6th for 600 or something. Thanks for the rail, taking the day off today for a group HH review with stable mates.

Hey guys,

Couple cool things have happened in the last 3 days. Tuesday I did a full HH review with the guys from #TeamFoldto2nd of one of my tourneys from a couple of weeks back (an 8r that I final tabled on a Sunday) and I was super unhappy with how I played through the whole tourney, basically. Every time we paused the replay and were like "so, we agree the best play is X?", we'd start it again and I'd do the exact opposite of what we said was best, haha. It was pretty funny and I wasn't too hurt by it, but it did wake me up a little and make me realise that despite the huge heater I'm on, there are still a ton of holes in my game that I need to fix. I haven't 'made it' in poker in any sense, and there's still a ton of money to be made. I'm super motivated to get back to the tables now, and I'm considering re-arranging my plans for tomorrow night so that I can put a session in.

The second thing that motivated me even more, was that I was in London for the day today for a meetup with a couple of old friends, and one of them is really interested in poker having heard that I'm doing it for a living. I suggested we stop in on the Grosvenor Victoria to get a taste of the EPT atmosphere, and we ended up dropping in for half an hour or so towards the end of the day. I think at a time when I was in danger of getting a little complacent and lazy, it was the perfect time for me to walk into a casino (something I don't do very often anyway) and be surrounded by some of the very best in the game. I will admit I got pretty star-struck standing about six feet away from a High Roller table containing Vanessa Selbst and Eugene Katchalov, and seeing guys like Moorman, Timex, O'Dwyer and more making deep runs is really inspiring for us online guys who haven't yet made the jump into the live arena. I don't know how much live poker I see myself playing in the future - probably not a huge amount as I tend to get pretty easily intimidated at live tables and turn into a huge fish - but it was certainly a really cool experience to hang out at the centre of the poker world for a little while. It might give me a little more incentive to play live tourneys in future too.

Anyhow, cliffs are that I'm gonna try to make sure that even if I'm getting lax with reviewing my own game (which I don't think is a huge deal as I prefer having it reviewed by others anyway), I keep actively learning and watching training videos, and I keep putting in the volume necessary to succeed. I might be on an epic heater but I ain't done yet.

GL for the weekend fellas!

Pretty ****ty end to my Sunday, came 25th in both the 888 Mega Deep major and the Party 300k gtd major. 2nd week out of 3 I've gone top 100 in both of those. Guess I'll get 'em next time.

Not posting too much in here lately, partly because no-one else is posting or replying lol. Things going well, just grinding it out as usual. Five days of grinding coming up, let's hope we win things!

Haha glad to know people are still reading

Yesterday I shipped the 109 5k on 888 which was nice. I haven't won many MTTs with buyins >100 so it felt pretty good even though it was just a small one. I'm only around 2.9k of total cashes (maybe even less) away from my 500k badge on PocketFives, so my goal is to get there by the end of the week!

Vamoooooooooooooooooo

Nice 109 ship. Entrants, payouts etc?
How do you find the players in those stakes on 888? super soft?

Payout was around 2.6k or so I think. Not bad for a small field, 82 runners or something.

I don't think the 55s and upwards on 888 are super soft, as there are a decent number of regs in them, but most of the regs aren't especially good and there's a fair few outright fish as well. They're certainly way softer than the equivalent stakes on Stars, and they're great variance reducers because of the smaller fields.
