It was more a comment on how the tourney plays out rather than a comment on how you played it. You are cashing regularly and with a bit of luck can go deep here. Stick with it and make sure you qualify rather than buy in direct.


It was interesting to watch the different approaches, "lilholdem954" (previous massive winner), pushed everything and blew up 171st, but seemed to take the view that fold equity plus a likely 35% chance at showdown was enough for any two cards.


Not the worst approach. Sort of backs up what I was saying about needing showdowns (and winning them) to go deep

Yeah - I took as a general comment though always pondering the balance in my play - a little passive at the moment.

Very easy to turn the volume up too much though and blow up early.

I used to play Betfair (100-150 runner ish) events all the time - made a solid profit but needed a change.

This year have been concentrating on the Warm Up and other offline events for the challenge/change - might need to go back!?!

Weird day on the horses ... a couple of second places from my tipped 4 ...

However a couple of winners yeilding bigger profits.

Bravo to the Glorious Goodwood Comp ... I pick the losers and then bet bigger on the others.

Greyhound reverses and $21 into the Pokerstars $60k g"tee $10+1 re-buy ... should be no re-buys ... 1500 chips per $10

Currently on 14,500 chips

40th of 1870 left.

Re-buy nutter on the table ... pumped in $320 (in 43 mins of 90 min re-buy period) ... chipped one guy to 25k ... never seen so many hands hold up it was ridiculous!

Huge distance to go ... but nice to have the chips ...

Add on bought due to card drought.

14,500 chips : Average - about 10k: 1528 players left - fighting for c$90k

Mr $320 buy in died 47 mins ago but would have need to finish 18th to break even.

First Prize = $13,900

Need to build a stack.

... quickly to 35k ... and 10th place ... but sliced back with KK vs AA.

Still 21.4k vs 12.5k Average ... but was going to second if KK good.

Oh well - need to start stealing again.

Death by 1000 cuts ...

Break 2 (3 hours in) - pretty card dead.

Limped with AK suited and rewardedby T9 push ... 20k left : Average 35k.

Was joining great until two short stacks tried to attack AA ... their replacements very chipped and suddenly a then average stack looking pretty weak.

430 left - 378 paid - not interested in the low rungs on the ladder but will be a little patient at BB = 1200.

Push and hope to be called by dominated hands ... table not too table with one double up.

One massive stack due to AA vs KK vs AQ ... others would all be comparable or shorter ... but need the double up ...

Amazing cash session ... down $150 in 15 mins losing twice with full houses ... but a good claw back and beat down the nutflush with a J3 starting hand full house.

Golf bet made before the start on Scott Verplank for the Buick Open looks doomed.

Morning cards - kept running into flopped straights.

Then ran AK into A7x ... vs 77 ... could have lost less here ... tut tut ...

Looking forward to the cricket but could be a long hard day for England.
