Well my day started pretty badly in the WPT freeroll on FeltStars. I played well for the first hour and a half or so and managed to stay close to or just below starting chips. After folding pretty much everything because it was garbage I finally got a decent pocket pair. Well I took my face card pocket pair and 3 bet, even though I was BB and only had 1 limper....being short stacked I didn't want anyone to outdraw me cheap. Well, the other guy called, flipped over his A-4os...and flopped the ace. SO much for the WPT lol.
Next was the Saturday Nuts Live game, hosted by Poker Nuts In Canada, also on FeltStars. This was a great game with friends, and all seemed to fall into place for me. I won the game. It was a small profit, but it still made me feel good.
After doing well in that game I wanted to play more, but not risk anything, so I decided to play the Montreal Freeroll on Poker770. I haven't played this tourney in a while, even though it has great value, and was stunned to find out that it now pays the top 25 instead of the 19 it used to. With only 108 entrants, almost 1 in 4 odds, I felt good about winning something. Well, I played hard, played well and over all dominated most of the hands I played. Again though it was luck that crushed me and I made 28th, just missing the payout levels. I felt bad, but not broken, and moved on to the next game.
That game was the $2.20 SH MTT on FeltStars that started at 10:20pm ET. It only had 39 registered, but what a ride it was. I watched people go down in flames all around me with nothing even close to what I'd call with, but they were losing to me so I didn't mind lol. For the whole game I was in the top 5, mostly first, and had real good feelings about this one. It was not meant to be though. Once we got down to 3 I got all-in with top and bottom pair on the flop, other guy had the flush draw, and we all know the rest.
So all in all it was a good day profit-wise, but it still had those moments of spirit crushing agony where luck beats you when odds say it shouldn't. My girlfriend says I should take the good and focus on that, which is good advice, but after 9 months of agonizing defeats it is difficult. I will use this as a start, build upon it, and hopefully things will start to sway the other way for me. But who's to complain about a day where I profited $11 on $3 investment? I guess she's right, it is a positive thing!
So now I'm on my last game for the night, a $3 bounty game on FeltStars. I have already taken down 2 bounties at the time I am writing this, am 2/76 out of 135 starters, and am still feeling good about my game. So let's hope I have good news to share tomorrow! Good night all(or good morning lol) and good luck.
