so... i played 24 sngs today and cashed 11 for $1042 profit.... unfortunately that doesnt make up for my day yesterday where i lost an almost unbelieveable amount of $1714 for my worst day ever. i think because i did good today, i will play tomarrow's wcoop event (well really today's). it is a $1050 buy in, which is really to steep for me, but i cashed the one i played last sunday for about $2200, so thats how i am gonna justify it.
here is a hand i saved today....

i play hands like this a lot and it really doesnt matter what cards i have... although bigger cards help in case you get called by a small pair... which btw is rare on the bubble of a sng. look at the money in the pot, i cant let these smaller stacks build up... none of them want to bust 1st... apply the pressure. i love having chips on the bubble, and i love it even more when there is a baby stack as well... i will push any2 non- stop, then do everything in my power to keep the baby stack in still while i bleed the med stacks.
here is a hand i believe i misplayed... i think i should had pushed here....

after playing the hand i copied the HH so i could enter it into sng power tools and see what the $ev is for a push here on the button. i entered both the sb and the bb's ranges as 44+,A7s+,A9o+,KJs+ which i think is more than fair, they may even be a little tighter than that, because they dont have to double up now. anyways sngPT said with that range, blinds and stack sizes my $ev to push for a$110 sng is about +$3.60, and stated that it is close enough that both a push and a fold is acceptable here. so i guess.... will the blinds be tighter in this spot than the range i gave them??? i think i should had pushed. its hard to say, but im the shortest stack and i need to pick up chips fast. btw, i did not cash this one.
cash game.... i played a little 2/4nl today while i was waiting for my last few sngs to end. made like $560 in an hour or so.... i won a big hand towards the end of the session then i ended up tightening up way to much because i was short handed in one sng and HU in another, so it was hard to pay close enough attention in the cash game.
here is a picture of the big hand, it is from FTP's gay HH thing so no details.. but all the money went in on the river, or most anyways... i took him for a little over $400
in the cash game one of the good sng players followed me there..... he is a real cool guy, and i also was talking alot to another great player at the tables today... might be worth inviting them to the forum i post at...
i gotta get to sleep if im to play any majors tomaorrow (i meant later today).
HEY, CAN ANYONE HELP ME with the hand converter... the pictures for the cards wont show up here....i get red X's. thanks
