I Hate it When...
I played in a $5 HORSE tourney at Full Tilt tonight and went out on the bubble. 25th. 24 paid. Out of 171 players. Not a bad showing, but I wanted the $247 1st Prize. Played well early, but couldn't catch a hand late. I'd have good stud hands when it was Razz and vice versa. I just got blinded/anted off because the calling stations were out in full force. Love it sometimes, but when your cards go cold in a tourney, you just bite the dust.
Does anyone know a better strategy for me? Tight solid limit HORSE play. Not horseplay like screwing around, but is it skill+luck when the blinds go up so fast? Can I minimize the luck aspect?
I've got $6 in my Full Tilt account and have been up and down there. Cashed out about $150 a month ago and started with $20. Highest I got was $70 and then the NL beats came. Big pairs up against bigger pairs preflop. Still learning the NL ring game. A new animal I tell ya.
Have about $220 in Bugsy's Club. Around $40 in Neteller and $100 in a sportsbook online. Total gambling bankroll. $366 or so. Gonna build it back up. Need a big tourney win. Soon enough.
Also, the next Church game is coming up on Friday, January 12th. Must play in that one. The games are just too juicy.
Just had to get a little frustration off my chest.
