Mainly for Ian's benefit...
Cash last night was a bit of a disaster, few hands of note.
We overcall two limps with 99 in 1/1, button makes it 10, gets a call from both blinds, folded to us, we look at the dead money and make it 48, folds to BB who calls. He check shoves a 7 high flop, we call, we hold, good start to the day.
Little later a few things happen. We get schooled by Mr. Gascoigne a few times, most notably when we bluff shove a 10/10/6 board and he calls with 56, then the last hand of the night where we make it 6 onto his straddle, he makes it 30something, we shove for around 150 total, he calls with A6 and beats our AQ.
Also got smashed with KQ on 427 with our FD and two overs versus 2/4, get floated two streets with bare A high who rivers the pair, run AKs into KK (AKx flop) and run two pair into middle pair that turns a better two pair. All in all, not a wonderful day. Actually kinda enjoyed it though, as company goes, that table was one of the best.
Went home and played a 2/7 triple draw tournament, which I chopped for my first ever online win, for a whole $9. I am such a baller, it's actually unreal. And yes, you read it right, CHOPPED. Decided to celebrate with practically busting my stars account playing 4 man HU sngs today, and running like... well, me online, which is a common euphemism for absolute rubbish
On the plus side, we have the GPS incoming
I do have 30% left to sell, and since im a couple of hundred posts short of being able to post on the staking board, I will put it up here.
Basically, I'm selling at face value, because I don't feel like I'm proven enough to sell at a mark up, even though I believe I have a pretty strong skill edge in deep stacked tournaments. So, for GPS Sheffield, I'm selling 30% for two bullets @ £8.80 per %. I actually adore the GPS tour, the structures are fantastic, the fields and the prize pools are big, and the buy ins are within my tournament bankroll management. Ran deep last time, finishing 28th at my first shot, hoping to do better this time!
