Total Weekly Profit: $2,501.65

Overall, this week has been ok. A little bit frustrating because I had 2 shots at BIG money. If you are from FCP (, then you probably read my MTT's thread and already know. But I'll sum it up right now anyways.

Played 4 tournaments this week.

Buy-in Entries Finish
100+9 310 55
200+15 6742 3271
200+15 1061 22
150+12 973 15

The Sunday Million was a frustrating tournament. It wasn't much fun because I liderally got no hands the entire time. I busted close to the 2nd break. I had KJ suited in the BB and after everyone folded to the SB who limped, I pushed my 7k stack all in. Blinds were 400/800. The SB was actually trapping me with AK and I busted.

I decided to play the 2nd Chance Sunday, and made it quite far. I played such great poker it felt aweome. My stack was 95422 and I was in the SB with...guess it....yup...KJ suited. An active player on the button bumps it up to 23200 (he has me covered by an extra 50k. He's been making lots of late position steals and so I decided to push. This time he had QQ and busted me.

In two days, I decided to play the nightly hundred grand on stars. Once again I made it deep after playing EXTREMELY patient. If I posted my hand history for that tournament, you'd understand how card dead I was. I honestly had so little opportunities to try to steal because of how loose my table was. To give you an example of how loose it was, I'll tell you a hand from it. The button raises to 3x BB (he has an average stack), the BB pushed all in. The button INSTA calls with 78suited. The BB had K6. And my table image was ignored, which was good. Anyways, I was 12/15 with the blinds coming to me in 3 hands and decided Q10 is good enough to push with my M of 4. Unfortunately, someone picked up QQ and called me. I busted 15th.

As for sit and go's. I started 4-tabling the 105+9 turbos on stars. I find that I play much better when I have 4 tables running. We'll see if I decide to continue using this strategy or if I'm going to go back to 1 tabling HU sit and gos. The reason I'm leaning towards 4-tabling is because I can't multi-table HU. I need all my concentration when I play HU because I ALWAYS have a decision. I've seen some players like maxv2 (BIG SHARK...avoid him) 3 table HU and are very successful. But for me, I feel like I'm more efficient 1 tabling, at most 2-tabling HU.
