re: Poker & Combuboom's Bankroll thread
Sure thing Chuck : ) I will probably play some more 50NL soon. I think after my next really good SnG-day I'll take a break and go back to cash games for a bit.
January 15th, 2007
Started with: $1357.00
Ended with: $1357.00 (+-$0.00!!!!11)
Time played: 2 hours 30 minutes
session notes: well, technically i'm down 12 bucks on the day as far as poker, but strangely enough, i accumulated $12 in rakeback and just received it the other day, keeping my bankroll at even. played three more $20 SnGs, with results: 7th, 6th, 2nd. didn't run so good. couldn't get dealt a hand and i lost the all of the matches on coinflips, the first two of which i had every right to get all the money in and my opponent did not (for example AKs vs 33).
the last match went on FOREVER! it went 1 hour 40... we had 6 players left at the 1 hour BREAK; sometimes you don't even get to the break in full tilt SnGs. i stole sooo many blinds with raggedy hands, really because i had no other chances. was exceptionally card dead, and the blinds were huge. 4-handed with 250/500 blinds, all stacks about 3000... a whopping 6 BB for everyone. and of course at this point i get dealt consecutively: K6, 3J, 8T, K2, 37, 82, 52, 23, 73, Q4, 97, 57, 27, 25. fun. began down over 2:1 in chips when we got heads up and having an M of 5, it went from a pushament to a luckament, and i lost a coinflip.
new week of poker after dark starts tonight! it's world champion week... this match will have: jamie gold, chris moneymaker, chris ferguson, carlos mortensen, doyle brunson, and johnny chan. the contrast in personalities is nuts. ought to be interesting.
