Overall a pretty damn good night. I spent the first part donating to SoxLover in the cash game at FT. I dropped $120 there. Oh well. I do not seem to be able to get anything going at FT yet. I am hoping to hit an MTT or something and get a workable bankroll there.
So then I hit Stars. As most of you know I have been running a little badly this end of Feb. Not badly in the sense of the bankroll failing but I swear I had not won a single SNG in two weeks. Last night that all changed.
I start off by getting some confidence by beating a single table. I then enter the 45/SNG. I was small stacked most of the game but I took over the final table. I got some good cards at good times. I pushed all in three times in a row and then look down and see Pocket Rockets.. so I push again. I get a caller and all of a sudden I have chips! Woo Hoo! I really do not remember much else except when it was down to three and I had that HUGE chip lead I flopped an OESD with 72o. Obviously I had to call the additional 5K bet. I turned the straight and then basically just kept going all in with the last guy. It did not last long.
First place and $139 richer the Hoki-Vegas Bloggers ask me to play a two-tabler. I ran over that one too. I spared G-Cox so that he could take third and I ended up finishing in second. The hand I lost to was my QQ vs his 76c. He rivered a sf. Umm. Great. All the money was in pre-flop. It hardly bothered me though as I took $54 for that one.
I also joined one of the smallest WWDN's in history. I made the final table but busted out first hand. I was bluffing against Quantloos which is a bad idea since that guy NEVER EVER NEVER FOLDS. I had not seen him play so I had no idea. He called my all in with A7o on a AKQ and maybe flush board. Oh well. Perhaps he reads my blog. I saw him make FAR WORSE calls and EVERY SINGLE TIME HE SUCKED OUT.. I mean it was crazy. It was for sure his night as he easily took first. Congrats! Everyone was a little pissed at the guy I am sure.. I found it a little amusing. It was almost like the male version of Veneno!
So I am not sure what I am going to play tonight. I have the bankroll to start playing 20$ SNGs. It is sitting around 1200 right now. Wes says I can!!! I will probably alternate between 20's and 10's, and throw a few 45/SNGs in the mix. I really like those. Probably because I have taken first twice in the past month having played a limited number of them. I also will need to hit the 180/SNG at least once a week, and try and score in a good ole' fasion MTT. Good luck to you all!
