Ignoring the Evidence

Despite my January vow of focusing on Omaha, the knowledge that the points tard was working on Saturday led me to try to satellite into the $750k on Saturday. I also attempted an $8.80 36 player SNG into the Sunday Brawl.

The Sunday Brawl sat saw me wounded at Final table when I lost a 3 way pot with AA against AK and KJ when AK went Broadway. I fought back for 3rd and a big fat ZERO instead of the $32 2nd or entry. I did win the $750k sat but faced an intersting dilemma at seat bubble. 22 seats were awarded but 23rd was $198, temptation to take dive and use money for Brawl was high but two others at my table were diving for money too and since Chip Jett was still live I wanted to see if I could also pick up bounty during monkey push time.

I woke up Sunday morning and played a Brawl sat got sucked out on then put full HE skillz to test in Super-Turbo.

Played 2.75 hours in Brawl no KOs, no prizes despite being top 25 1st 15 mins on a flopped set aginst AJ on Ace high flop, then lost a coinflip to a KJo UTG raiser Played $750K for 2.5 hours only to jam a KJs from SB 2k chips 80/160 blinds and get called by a monster QT which flopped a Ten. 5 Hours of play a paltry 224 points earned and a complete ignoring of the evidence that says don't play Hold'em:

I did win a ~75 player $22 ^-max Omaha tourney Saturday, took 3rd in $2k Omaha KO Sunday and was 11th in Sunday night $4k guarantee. I tried a different approach and was in 4th place with 36 left and 36 paid. This is alien to my game and I lost a good number of chips when a favored draw did not hit only to get them back from overpair overplaying tard a bit later.

My FTOPS sats are 0 for 6 at this point with me catching 1 cash prize against Hoy.
Below is my reminder to focus on PLO.

But I also can see from this that 1 Big score can make all the difference!

I may make MATH tonight if I can get upbeat about HE again.
