^^^^

Good report, thanks. It's a pain when we don't get the breaks. Nature of the beast sometimes/usually.

Sorry- I’ll make sure I get some updates in the breaks of the main next week. I may have to change the starting day I play but I’ll confirm early next week .

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates I was using my breaks to meditate and refocus. Had a pretty tough table compared to the field for a Friday night leg. Was pretty much card dead the whole night, got a lucky triple up when I found Queens in the small blind vs a cut off open, I flat as the cut off has been pretty active, the BB the squezes to 11 BB, cut off jams and we call, BB then uses 2 time banks before making the call. They both had AK and we fade 4 outs for a much needed chip up at the start of level 7. Next three levels I was forced to open fold hands like KQ, QJ, A10 as I was getting 3 bet then 4 bet jammed each and every time. From levels 7-10 I went from above average to 15 BB due to getting in these annoying spots. A few shoves got called by the 3 better and they always had me crushed (I did feel like getting stubborn and gambling after the third spot, and happy I maintained control).

At the end of level 12 I shoved the cut off with AQ suited for 12BB got called by a middle stack with K10. K high flop and we don’t improve and the dream is over.

On to the main event next week. It’s a good mix of players getting involved in this. Hope for some better timing in the main.

As always thank you for your support guys. Hopefully we take down the main!!

BRS are still going. They have gotten rid of there online presence, however they still have their WhatsApp players group and players continue to be staked. Nothing wrong with that mind. I know a few of the BRS staked players and have done before they had been staked. I’ve never witnessed them cheating before in anyway.

I am no expert on this. But I would have thought if you late reg you are closer to the money, less players remaining, and be less than a double up away from average chips. Stealing blinds and antes are also much more profitable. For all of these reasons the ROI would increase for any player late regging and would be higher for solid pros or short, mid stack specialist.

More negative 💩.

It’s all to do with the number of big blinds you start with. The rest doesn’t really matter.

I think the point here is if they are good players they would already be in the field. I have never seen the floor siding with a Pro in the laws of the game in any PP Live event and I have now played in 3.

Not sure about that. We know they are going to PP and BRS, split with the player. :-)

@PokerPops!

I agree with you.  PP have staked pros playing. I guess Technically they are just increasing the amount of sponsored pros in the tournament. I read the thread and understood it to be saying that the players that are being put in have an unfair advantage due to being staked. Rather than should PP be reducing overlays by the method of putting more players in. Most of the field are staked or have swapped action with someone. So for me the environment is just the norm. Everyone still wants to win and plays there cards how they think they should be played.

What is the unfair advantage? That they have more bullets to fire? That they are staked? They are better players than you?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I remember your post saying that the guy hit a gut shot or something like that to bust you? You got your money in good and just got unlucky. I would have been happy that I got my money in good. My bust out hand was AJ VS KQ who ended up making trips.

If the operator is playing snug then it means you can just steal more pots from them.

I’m not part of a stable, or have a ton of money to burn. So I guess every time I play I’m at a disadvantage to most of the field? I seem to be doing pretty well this year in tournaments without being amazing.

Tournaments are tough, most people generally look for any edge they can get.

If guys are being put into party poker tournamanets where there is an overlay and then playing splashy wouldn’t this be counter productive on the reason party poker put them in? They put them in to win back a slice of the overlay, by them getting it in as underdogs won’t show a high ROI on Party’s investment. And if they are playing a lose aggressive style then I trust people playing £500+ tournaments to be able to adjust there game accordingly and not overplay one pair hands? I played the Side events at Millions Nottingham this year and like every poker player has experienced had my AQ lose to a a lose aggressive guy/girl who deceived A7 suited was good enough to call a  3 bet and then flop top 2 vs my top pair. It happens all the time and will continue to. Maybe investing a year or so savings in a high variance game just isn’t the best thing to do if you won’t be happy with being outdrawn or outplayed.

Most of the players are put in to these by stables, staking threads, or by selling to friends and family.

I understand however when friends or stable mates are soft playing as that is just against the rules of the game and I witness it all the time in online Sats on PP and Starts. Nothing gets done about it which is wrong. So I just don’t play them any more.

Rant over I guess. And I guess the point I am making if you don’t like the conditions for whatever reason just don’t play.  We should try to promote the game for the right reasons and not put it down due to a bad beat.
