Hard times

March 31, 2010

Sitting here trying to get a post down in print while i have a dear and so much loved one within my family is fighting for her life in hospital. Trying to get my thoughts right when fighting this worrying, ice-cold knot in my stomach. It’s not fair, we had so much planned we were going to do!

The feeling of fear and being helpless is overwhelming, almost making me not able to breathe. And at the same time watching everyone else i care for so much around her in such worry and hurt is so heartbreaking!

Have been playing a few freerolls just to try getting my mind on something else for a few hours at the time but it’s been hard, even though i have been winning 2 out of 3 in average, it’s still just by routine and no challenge at all.

The Curse of weekends??

March 20, 2010

Fridays and saturdays are the worst days for me when it comes to playing poker. I know everyone’s telling me -Ohh it’s during these days you should play since all drunken fish are out there and you should easily cash up at the tables! Yes i agree but i keep getting outdrawn on the weekends when playing by any 2. LMFAO i know i shouldn’t nag about it! Especially when it’s in my favour in the long run so i’m not complaining! I just feel i haven’t got the patience to sit down and wait for my moments. Got other things i rather want to spend time doing uhm and people LMAO.

I’ve got some projects i’ve started too, going to let you in on them when they’re running more smoothly.

i’m still doing my homeworks progressing my skills and strategy. My challenge is still going strong, started using off my tickets doing 2 sitngos wich i both won first so my bankroll is on the way there. Still got some 85 days left to get more tickets!

Found some of my teenage-friends yesterday and that made me really happy,been talking now a lot today to one of my best friends during my wild teenage-time and i invited her to come visit, looking forward to see her again. Wonder if Ash’s going to survive 2 swedish airheads at the time LMFAO??? We’ll see later this spring/summer! He really have this funny face every time i do talk to someone back in sweden, thinking it sounds funny 😀

LMAO Got challenged

March 16, 2010

got 90 days to accumulate as much points as possible by playing only freerolls. For every win i get a ticket into $0.50 either 6 seater or 10-sitngos. Every ticket’s valid for 2 months so the challenge is to see how much money i’ve won at the end of June from absolutely nothing! Every freeroll has been soo easy to win, 4 tickets in 2 days now, some 300 entrants and all just fish who never heard of odds, position or anything remotely strategic when it comes to poker so i’m in for a smooth ride here.

Today i had this big-stacked guy bullying the table, sitting to my left who called anything with any 2, so i decided on the strategy of playing weak every time i actually hit or had something since he just pushed allin on the river no matter if he hit or not. I just knew he was the one that was going to double me up!

Got my chance with rockets so i limped on my bb, he raised and got 3 callers including me. I flopped trips. First to speak I checked and as i thought he pushed with second pair. The others called the allin with A3 just having a pair of aces. The other one had pp 8s. My trips held up so i quadrupled up there. After that point all i had to do was bet and reraise if he bet or reraised me!

He couldn’t bully me since i started to chip up to finally have more chips than him. This strategy also meant risking that i was going to be outrivered when just limping with AQ or AJ in position, even my pp Qs i had to fold on a bad flop but i was prepared to fold monsterhands here just in order to get all the chips from this bigstacked guy! That was my goal and i stuck to it . My strategy held up and he ended up 37th out of the money and me winning the ticket on his expense. He just couldn’t change gear closer to the money, calling allins for half his stack with 49 off out of position. BUT he was hilarious and made me laugh and that made it even more worth it all! TY you’re now my favourite-fish and i’ll not tell who you are since you’re going to be the one adding to my bankroll, not even going to tell where LMFAO 😛

Decided to take this challenge since i need to go back to some basics in order to get this deal i’m i really want! If i can improve my game (I’m on scrutiny for a couple of months here), especially when it comes to aggression, odds and position. Thought it would be best to try out new strategies where i can do it in lowrisk-game. Need to improve my patience too since i last year soo easily got bored and my focus started drifting from the game to something else LMAO.. A lot of the games really have been going on routine and that’s the worst state of mind to start a game in.

Should be fun to play otherwise Don’t! Have been saying this before and i really need to follow my own advice here.

To be continued

Be safe and have fun
