Poker Through the Eyes of an Amateur

Under Construction

As I mentioned before, I dropped a fairly large portion of my bankroll in order to play in the WPBT game on Monday night. Since I was getting dangerously low, I decided I would start TripJax's $55 SNG Challenge in order to get myself back up and running again. For those too lazy to follow links and read for yourself, the table below is pretty self explanatory.

*HTML for the table blatantly borrowed from TripJax's post since Blogger sucks with letting me use extremely simple HTML to create a table.

I had actually started on this before the game on Monday, but I decided that I would just blow my profits so far on the qualifier and start over. So yesterday I started up two $5 nine player SNGs when I got home. The second one I was off to a great start immediately. In the first one I ended up getting JJ my 2nd or 3rd hand. Long story short, I bet hard into a 9 high flop on both the flop and turn. The river was a seven, making a possible straight on the board, and the person I was against bet almost all in. I called. She had 77. She had pulled a two outer on me.

But she made a mistake: she left me with T120.

I doubled, tripled, and quadrupled up in the next three hands that I played. I ended up taking 2nd in this game. That's my best comeback so far on PokerStars. I came in first in the other SNG as well. So, I'm well on my way to level two of the Challenge. Hopefully I can keep up this level of play.
