Lost HU, 2/9 in aipf's on that FT yet i still had 60% of the chips 3 handed, was playing really really well, just ran obnoxiously bad against the guy who won.....he riv'd me 4 different times from the time we were 3-9 handed to double up and stay in, and then last hand of tourney he flats my 3b with 42 and we get it in on 842ccc when I have AcKx and he just hammers the 4 ott, so sick
3 more days to try to win the triple crown, really annoyed right now but what can you do
How much would have to be up top of an MTT for you to think about chopping it when 3-4 handed? How do you weigh that calibur of your opponents, the amount of $, game flow, stack sizes, etc.?
Well, there's more that goes into it than just that in some situations; like take Wednesday for example where I had 27 tables up between 6 sites; I chopped the $75 10k on FTP 3 handed because I was barely able to pay attn to it. I would rather just chop it in 1st and move on, especially against 2 semi competent opponents.
But yea, normally I won't really chop that often; I think I have an advantage shorthanded against most players just from playing so many 6m SNGs and getting a lot better at my shorthanded postflop play in the past yr from my SNG backer working on my game with me. Obviously if I feel outclasses, I'd be willing to chop though, but really can't think of any situation where I'd take less than what ICM is worth, so can't see too many situations where I'd ever chop.
Took today off from mtts after going out last night to watch some of the college bball games, was kinda over it yesterday afternoon anyway and wanted to be sure I was ready for a full weekend MTT grind.
Probs gonna play some hypers here in a bit, don't even have 50k vpps on the month yet but am close so want to make sure I hit that to not lose 1 of my months WRT keeping SNE.
Gla this weekend! I'll have month ending graphs on Monday, still have tomorrow to ship the triple crown, maybe will bink something on 888/party/ipoker/ongame tomorrow, vamosss
Ended up playing a few afternoon turbo mtts, took 4th in the 75 rush mtt on FTP for about 1k and then like 24th in the 55 6m turbo 500 cap (rain). Took a quick break after that and ran to the gas station to get some drinks/food and then started my night MTT session and started loading some hypers; ended up taking 8th or 9th in the 109r 6max (rain) and 18th in a 109 turbo, standard day at the ole mtts.
Ran pretty well at the hypers though and got in about 3k vpps in 1.6 hours of play (2 sessions) which was sweet, these wre the last hypers i will play on March, so might as well post a month ending graph of dem hypers imo, solid 25 hours of hypers I put in this month
Sitting on 275k vpps right now, not bad considering the lack of hyper hours Ive put in thus far this yr.
Will be up and at it a bit before 5am tomorrow so I can late reg the ps big 33, ps 33^3, 888 55 fo, ftp 26 5k, party 54 1.5k and start my day with the 109 turbo 17.5k and 11r, vamosssss. Gla this weekend!
Heh thx for the support in the 2k guys, unfortunately I busted ~235th (84 cashed). I felt really good about how I played, made 1 mistake when I cold 4b/called someone I viewed as a spewy HS MTTer but even if he is as spewy as I thought, still a pretty marginal spot. But yeh, overall was satisfied with my play, made some good river decisions that got me a ton of chips early, was top 25 in chips basically all of the first 4 hours.
Yesterday was a horrible ****ing day overall, ran like absolute dog **** but luckily I started off the day well once again chopping the 109 15k HU for 6.3k, same bird I shipped last sunday for 7.5k. Also for the second straight Sunday, I lost a flip for the overall CL ITM of the early FTOPs event, last week there was ~180 left in the $129 KO FTOPs and I lost QQ to AK for 1/180ish and yesterday KQ<TT where I 3/5/7b shoved for 1/360 in the $256 6m KO FTOPs.
April I plan on going hard with hypers, really would like to get 150k+ VPPs which would leave me with >425k on the yr at the end of the month. Would like to get ahead of pace a bit so I can dedicate more days to MTTs during WSOP when the HS's will be a bit softer so I can play 50r/100r's across the sites, all the HS fo's etc. Also, way in the future but I don't want to play a single SNG in December as the games are absolutely gross as hell, so I'd like to be done with 1mil (or 1.25mil if I really get going) by the time December rolls around, but that's really far in advance so can't think much about that, just in the back of my head as I'm trying to be better prepared this yr to avoid the cluster**** of regs that is December.
Anyway, not sure how much I'm going to grind today, think UFgators is moving out today to go to a perma spot to live, so might just chill today for the most part. End of the month MTT graph below, probs close to b/e post RB, nb considering I ran like **** at the top of my BI range and had 0 5 fig scores
Also, will probably offer some daily freerolls on my hyper volume/hours this month, so get ready for that!
Pretty ****ing pitiful I've played <200 hours of hypers this yr still, 158.0 hours on this new DB that is Jan 18-date, and then the 18.9 hours I put in Jan 1-Jan 17 when I had the 2 power outages that cost me 8k, for a total of 169.9 hours of hypers on the yr LOL. Guess it's pretty sweet then that I have >275k vpps even with all the fail going on
