Semi-amateur poker

End to the freerolls… hopefully…

Well, not much has changed since I last posted. I gave up with the whole FR attempt after I missed my round 2 FR MTT on Stars after finishing 7th out of 3,800-something. I woke up about an hour or two late and didn’t see a point in jumping into the fray after blinding off 7 or 8 levels. You can do that in a live MTT when you start with 30k in chips… but not with 1.5k.

Anyway, I deposited a small amount of money and have been one-tabling the 7-game on FTP. So far I’ve been playing great and have almost triple my original mini-roll.

Here is a screen shot of my sessions so far:

Understandably it’s a very small sample size (taking a guess, I’d say I’ve played around 200-300 hands so far) and I haven’t given variance enough time to kick in just yet but I’m feeling great about the way I’ve been playing. Of course I’ve definitely caught some lucky cards but I’ve been helped out by the fact that new players come and try the games, dump off their chips, and leave.

That’s what I think The Big Game in Las Vegas used to be like with Chip Reese and Brunson; they would try and invite players to sit down and take shots. Of course they’d lose. 🙂

Anyway, I’m just trying to grind out a roll from these games (which, apart from PLO, I’m all very comfortable with) and stay focused. I’ll keep you updated as I go along.

Good luck!
