2006 Year In Review

Bankroll Growth as been pathetic, will wait until end of year to determine net change but it started small and ended small.

Bankroll Management is also bad, I play above my bankroll. Luckily job can supplement when needed.

Freeroll Play has been spectacular. Won Main Event Seat (did not cash) , Won Aussie Millions Seat (yet to play). From Bankroll management perspective it would be ridiculous for me to buy into either of these tournies but as a next stage Freeroll no problem. Here's hoping we enjoy the vacation in Melbourne. As far as Aussie Millions play goes "I just hope I don't embarass myself" . This is also what Ron Jeremy told a reporter as he walked into Main Event this year.

Main Event Day 2

After completing Day 1 with a respectable 26,200 chips, decided to be a little more aggresive in position. Stole a few blinds the 1st hour, but then in the span of 3 hands lost my chips with 2 overpairs after flop.

1st was just 99 but after 763 flop was pretty sure BB had A rag that paired the rag when he led out with 3k bet. Called but then 3rd player in hand raised to 9k and BB went all-in. Folded when I decided one of them had set. Was wrong guy to my left had flopped top 2 and this laydown kept me in tourney.

2 hands later my QQ was taken out by SB. Flop of J42 and turn of 3 took me to rail when I ran into flopped set of jacks. Maybe next year my reads will be better.

Line of tourney was listening to Ron Jeremy being interviewed, to paraphrase gist of his comment was that "I just don't want to be embarrassed by my play"

Main Event Dead Money

Through some amazing rivers (77 beating KK), (AJ taking out AK on rivered straight) and pocket 9s hitting sets 4 times including 1 river I have punched my ticket to the MainEvent.

With a little bad luck of not picking up a hand early I could make 1st break. This wll be a monster test of my giving off tells and being able to lay down good hands but not great hands. Alternatively I may let my inner Donkey run wild because this is just a freeroll to me.

Good Luck to all who attend Main Event.

$200K Ka-Ching

My Bankroll has been taking a beating lately. Read Change100 blog on being on cold streak at ring games which gave me inspiration to focus my remaining meager bankroll on MTTs.

Took $8 to enter satellite for April 2 FullTilt $200k guarantee. Was fortunate enough to:

  1. Win a seat
  2. Have Network Connectivity Problems early when I was dealt JJ and not even get to call pre-flop when someone else had KK and flop was 8 high.
  3. Money.

With 25 left sitting 20th I was unfortunate enough to have AA cracked by 88 which cost me 100k main pot and would have jumped me up to 6th. Made a couple of mistakes in play because I was in 3rd when we made money.

Tilt Away

Tilt started late last Night on Bodog's Hi/Lo Omaha tables when I had A278 Double suited where I flopped 9 Hi Straight and Nut Flush draw. Bet hard flop and had 3 callers Ten came on Turn and I was re-raised by Donkey that now had top 2 pair. Ten on River gave same Donkey an undeserved Monster pot with his KKT9. No low and just top pair I wonder how he even calls the flop.

2nd Tilt trigger was when my Ac Qc got beat by Qs 8d after a flop of Qh-4c-3c, I bet 1/3 pot after and was checkraised All in. Variance is a bitch but losing to two outers always pisses me off.

1st Million Dollar Tourney on Stars

Won 2 tourney entries in $11 Double Shootouts so decided had to use 1 in real touney. 5699 entries today and I fortunately reached money. We were under 1000 left before I picked up my 1st pocket pair bigger than 66. Never had an AK and went out on one of 2 times I had AQ when an AT outdrew me. My inner Donkey was under wraps as I saw 9% of flops with my crappy cards.
Saving hand of touney was when I limped with KJ from button, caught 2 Ks on flop, last K came on river and SB who was on Flush draw that busted decided to bluff at Pot.

First Blog

Decided it was no longer enough to merely read other blogs and take plunge into creating own which could allow entry in blogger poker tournaments.

Been playing far too much online at FullTilt, getting Rakeback through UltimatePals has put bright light on how many hands I have played this year. Due to one fortunate tournament I am up for year but still not sure if I can overcome my inner Donkey as well as the many Donkeys one finds online.
