Best Day Ever

Yesterday was fun:
  • +6 BI in 330 hands and then played another 1k hands on the plateau. Stop at $2/hand imo.
  • Won a 27 person donkament for $100. 
  • $82 Step 3 ticket --> $215 Step 4 ticket --> playing in my first Sunday Million which is actually the Sunday 2 Million yay!
Also going to play in the Turbo Takedown considering the sick changes they've made to it. Basically going to be playing to try for consecutive cash's which give you free bonuses of $100(n) up to $1k. And I guess a car would be nice too.

I managed to bust out of the WBCOOP Event #2 shortly after this hand which tilted me slightly being results oriented and all. PLO is the game of the future if this is going to continue to be standard. I'm definitely not any sort of PLO expert yet but this baffles me.

This tournament kept me away from FPSing a lot in my cash games. I might throw one in if I'm planning on playing a longer session and see how it works out.


  1. Congrats on the big win, and good luck in the Million. I'd be jealous if tournaments didn't make my brain melt.

  2. Thanks Zach! They do make my brain melt too, but I'm really liking Angelo's idea about all decisions passing through event value - ie. do I want to have x stack here compared to y stack here and what are the probabilities of each... makes the brain melt so much slower.

  3. GL in the million. I'm such a micro player I've only ever played in the 1/4 million.

    That's a sick beat. Gutshot with the flush draw. Omaha will rip your heart out.

  4. I'm starting to think you feel down a well.
