Big news this week :) i shipped my first MTT last night/this morning. It was the $4.40 turbo 2k gtd, which wasn't a huge field (711 players), but i'm still very happy with it. It was a late night one, so it wasn't a hard field i don't think and it showed in the plays i had to make. I don't think I got my money in more than 3/4 times prior to the final table. I ended up chopping it 3 handed being the chip leader and i got $440 instead of the $520. I did three times as many chips as 3rd place but it was 7am here in the UK and i'd been up for over 30hrs so i didn't want to lose any equity because i made a bad call.
In terms of my 180s I have managed to break out of my break even stretch and shipped 2 of them last night as well, which meant that I had the best day of poker in my life (taking home $600 on that day). This might not be a lot for most players but considering i had a roll of $1100 at the start of the day, I think i did ok! I also played a few $8s and found them to be very similar to the $2.50s and min cashed in just one of them. I kind of played these whilst under rolled and considering that i could brick 50 of them in a day and lose $400 i packed them in and just continued with the $2.50! Now that i have nearly 250BI for them i think that i will start to add them in again some time this week and hopefully i'll run well in them to buffer out my roll.
Graph of week:
Sick end to the week right??? I had run like SHIT all week in terms of EV and guess it came back to me on saturday. In the MTT we had just got itm and i went all in against someone and got runner runner boat to double up and become chip leader. Lucky but meh :) happens.
Graph for November:
Having a session with the coach tomorrow so i'm hoping that he will agree with me and i can start to play $8s and $3.30R. I'm going to do another post straight after this one which will outline my goals for the next few months from poker. This will mainly be something for me to keep referring to in the future and look back on when i'm crushing (hopefully :P ).
Good luck at the tables DCers :) gratz OMGClayDol on the 2nd series :)
