Decided to play two more tournaments hours later from my last 1st place finish in the sng.
So I registered in two and I believe one started shortly after the other, so I was pretty much playing two tourneys at once.

In the sng I was down to a measly 160 in chips from a beat in a pot. . Waited for the right time and got lucky to double up and then it went from there.

Took first down in that sng which was one hell of a grind 4 way.
Then about 30 mins later of some more grinding out I took down the bounty tourney with 6 bounties 3$ a piece.

Well after 5 straight wins I found out I was human after all, when I lost in a 10$ sng and a 6$ bounty tourney. Good news is I bounced back with a 2nd placer in a 10$ sng. What sucks was that I lost my connection heads up and we were pretty much tied for chip lead. So when I got the connection back I was down to 1,500 and it just got sour from there. Grrr. Oh well.

Been up n down the past 2 days and managed to get a lil up by playing a 20$ sng. I wasn't pleased with taking 3rd since I got unlucky taking a brutal river beat. I moved up from $10 to give the $20's a shot and they're really not much of a difference.

Some people were good while others just completely played bad. I'm sure I'll be giving couple more shots at these 20$ buy ins and maybe I can consistently place in them. I'm just really trying to slowly but surely move up in stakes patiently. So far I have some good bankroll management and plan on keeping it like that !

Nice cash man that should help the bankroll a little bit.

AHHHHHH! I got coolered three times in this tourney at the final table but still managed to take third with 6 bounties. Would of been nice if I didn't get coolered, I definitely would of taken first, no doubt. Still happy though. I had a bad week on cake and this brings me back to where I was and some before that bad streak this week.:beer:

Well after my last big cash It kinda went downhill from there. It was sick because I was playing pretty good in ring games and tournaments but I'd still get coolered, on top of that, since I knew I was playing good I'd go right back at it trying to win my money back. It works out sometimes, especially in cash games because you reload and get back at it, but this wasn't the case for me, I'd redload to just get a bunch of beats all over the place some more. I won't say they were all bad beats, but the majority of them were. It's just so sick how bad you can run within a certain range of time. :twisted:

So, it's a whole new month and I haven't been playing too much until about 3 days ago. I've been rockin the ring game tables (.50/1$ 6 handed) on Cake. I just got done playing a long session. I came up 55$, which at .50/1 $ table that's not all that great. I had it up to 120, then took a legit beat and then a bad beat about few hands after that. So I was down then reloaded 20$ on two tables and went back to work. After the reloads I did manage to get it back up to that 55$ profit for the session like I mentioned.

The cool thing about it though is I have rakeback so I kinda was getting money to play as well and I think I about played 700 dealt hands in the session. Geez, that's a shit load once I think about it.

I also managed to place in a couple guarantee tournaments. Made a final table then fell short of one but managed to make 20$ and 30 $ from them. Not only that, I also played some gold chip tournaments and got them up a little bit. Noticed Cake shop had a bunch of new goodies to choose from. Would love to get something nice out of there.

Alright well it was a while since I posted in my blog. Hope this was a decent read. :pop:

WOOOT WOOOT! Just played a hell of a rebuy add on tourney. I wasn't even going to register for this, but decided to at the very last minute of late registration.
So I bought in and then quickly rebought for another 1.5k in chips , waited a couple seconds till break started, then I added on 2.5k. That right there set me pretty decent with chips. I believe that was around the average everyone had. So from there I played some great poker. Made some great calls and even more great bluffs. It also helped when I went in with the best of it, that I didn't get unlucky by some one hitting their cards. Although I did take some bad beats, I just kept focusing on getting them back.

When It came down to it, I got a crappy connection about 15 hands into three handed . Once I re-established my connection I realized that blinds set me back about 100k. ARG! I finally ended up pushing all in with A:-d: 10:-d: and was called by A:-h: K:-d: and well....you know the rest....BUSTO I GO!

Had a blast though! Made a super nice profit from about 10$ total . :beer:

Took a shot at 2k guarantee rebuy add on tourney again. Went into this one with same strategy. Purposely register an hour into it right before final break starts. I registered though about 10 mins earlier, rebought right away. Had a huge pot where I was all in, QQ lost to A10. Double rebought again then had a hand where I doubled it up to 6k. Break finally started then I added on. From there I just rocked the tables.

Not happy with bubbling the final table pretty much. Took a bad beat again when I really needed it to hold. Had 1010 and pushed all in, huge stack called with k9 and hit a K on the river. Would of been nice to make the final table with a good amount of chips if the tens didn't get beat. Oh so close to a juicy prize pool! Got paid 31.35 total from it. So with the add ons and rebuys that's about 16$ profit, which is pretty weak for the grind I put into it.

Played a little bit of ring game action before that. I played about 300 hands and all I got out of it was about 5 bucks profit playing .50/1. Took some bad beats in the ring game finally rebought to the point where I ended up making my money back. Although I didn't make much money , I did manage to play 300 hands, so my rakeback amount should be bigger this month. And ended up getting two gold cards. 9:-h: , j:-d:

Was getting a great price to see the flop, thank goodness I did. Also was lucky enough that the guy hit his set. The other guy who raised to began with had KK he said. When I seen the guy flip over a set I wasn't that happy because of potential full house draws. Was so relieved knowing I didnt get rivered!

I bought in with 20 to start out with. =]
