last few days i have really been struggling, def ended my little streak.
bubbled several final tables, including both $30 rebuys today. the 2nd 30r today i was chip leader with 2 tables left, lost a few pots, then lost a big flip, the lost AA to 66 getting it all in on an 88x flop to the worst player left (hope he won). yesterdays 30r i ran KK into AA with 9 left. pretty stressful.
got slaughtered badly in 45 mans today, and i been playing those 90 man turbos a little bit too (think im gonna replace the sng sats i was playing with these), also got killed in those bubbling (close enough, placing 10th-15th) like 5 today.
but i did make 2 final tables today, both PLO, and i won one and got 5th in one, i kinda expected it to be the other way around, but this way paid more so im ok with it. i have awesome results in PLO tourneys even though i never studied the game, i think the players are just that bad, im amazed at what ppl call off with at the FTs and i wonder how the hell they got there.
i only save the one screen shot.
i decided since i was crying about my 45 man swings this month to post my final graph of this months results and im not playing tomorrow, so this is it....
this is only hitting 16% on my roi for the month, which with the huge influx of good players swarming in these lately, might be what i should expect now. still pretty good i think... def still worth playing if that is my expected value.
the Oct FTP leaderboard....
i took 11 days off this month including tomorrow (or today), and i have nothing to fear, these guys got owned. if i keep playing just on FTP (playing stars will take away from ftp volume, obv) i might be able to make a solid run at this every month. i would say i would be able to win it every month until some 2p2ers get a bet going or something.
basically the key to winning this is to play a ton of 45 man sngs because they count. most of the top 10 are 45 man sng regulars.

im not killing it or anything but 4 straight profitable days playing MTTs is awesome. well, i been doing well in 45 mans too, except for yesterdays $1300 drop in them.
i had a few final tables that are probably worth mentioning the last few days...
no good hooker stuff to post about, but i really been liking this happyendingz blog i found recently. it is written by a girl working in a massage parlor.
i am going to take the next few days off, i feel i have the leaderboard locked up and i been feeling a bit exhausted.

i won a little $33 turbo on FTP today, nothing special. sucks to run awesome in your smallest tourney and shitty in the rest, but i will take it.
notice the donkey in 10th? she had no chance as long as i was still in anyways, even if she was not destined to get fucked in 10th. lol.
when i got heads up, the guy lost his internet connection. i sat out and waited for him until break, wasn't that long, but i could had easily blinded him off for a guaranteed win. he did come back during the break and didn't even say thanks. either he doesn't give a shit or he doesn't know english, maybe chat was banned. not sure. oh well fuck him, i just hope when i lose connection heads up, that whoever im up against gives me a little time to get back online.
45 mans still going well and im still killing the FTP leader board.
nothing good to post about hookers, i been keeping an eye open though. in case you never noticed i have linked a few hooker blogs i like underneath awesome blogs on the left hand side of my page.
i will be back online Saturday morning... glgl.

i had huge stacks in a lot of tourneys today and ended up taking a few really sick beats and was real disappointed in most of my finishes, but i did get 3rd in the early 100r. not real happy with the 3rd since i had a huge CL 5 handed, but oh well. i did alright in the 45 mans too...
im pretty sure i cant lose the ftp leader board unless i take a week off (which isn't happening), so that is awesome. i can probably win it all the time if i played only ftp.
next month im gonna take some time off before FTOPS and get rested up, spend time with the family.
speaking of FTOPS, i really want to play the big events, hopefully i can win seats, because i cant afford to buy in to those.

not much to say really, just playing and nothing really happening. definitely one thing i wanted to note, 45 man swings. i finally pulled out of it, here is my graph for the month.
just like always, it came around... def a lot more swingy lately though.
i played in a blogger tourney last week, i was tilted from other tourneys and i def took it out in the small blogger tourney.
it was fun though, think i will try to play more of them... is there not a turbo blogger tourney? if not maybe we should get one going...

i final tabled a few things today, the 30k ko tourney i got a very disappointing 5th place. the 65k i got a very disappointing 4th place. and in the 100 1r/33k 6 max on ftp i was CL with 7 left and busted 7th obv. that is so fucking standard for me in 6 max tourneys.
wtf, 45 mans, its like im lost, this is fucking retarded. last 10 days im down over 5k in them.
here is the whole month... sick swings this month, and it looks like i am on my way to my 1st losing month in 45 mans.
it looks like if i keep playing my current schedule, the ftp leaderboard is as good as mine.
hopefully i can get a hooker post up somewhat soon.....
im taking tomorrow off, ill try ot have good news for Saturday night.

i kinda had a shitty day today, in the 100 1r with 18 left i had the chip lead and busted 18th, in a 6m tourney i busted 6th, 10th in the 30r, a few sick bubbles. i guess at least i got a 2nd in the PLO 30r.
i just been getting slaughtered in the 45 mans lately. here is the last 7 days.
this is my lifetime 45 man graph, as you can see these swings aren't unusual, but i def been going through more lately. stressful game.
as of right now i am still in 1st on the FTP leaderboard but the 2nd place dude (kaffeesatz33) is still very close. he has not taken 1 day off yet this month and he is putting in a lot of daily volume. i have already taken 4 days off this month and am taking Tuesdays and Fridays off the rest of the month.
i guess if it gets that close i can maybe play the last Friday of the month, and a few extra hours the last days. but i want to get the 1k bonus.
i kinda got carried away today, i was playing sng sats for the 1k Monday tourney and i was taking sick fucking beats non-stop, and i decided to keep playing them because of how good i was getting my money in and how confident i was that i could beat them.
i played 19 of these at $281 a pop. at the very end of the day i caught up a bit and i won my last 2 making an aprox $500 profit on these for the day. this could had ended up bad. anyways because of how i was running in all my tourneys i decided to not play the 1k and i just took all the T$. originally i had decided to play if i was up $500 in the sats and that was the number i hit. probably a good idea to back out though, maybe next week.
here is my profit/buyins for the day:

i haven't posted in a whole week, i just have had nothing to post about and been limited on time.
since the big win i been running kinda of shitty, but that is obv what you guys expected to hear.. lol. i lost 6500 since my big win. had several close spots, i mean i could had made some money if things were a lil different.
gonna have a big week next week for sure.
last week i won the weekly sat challenge for FTP's 750k, the bonus was only $400... not much but better than no bonus. this week i stood no chance as the 1st place guy had probably won 15 seats more than me and 2nd was close behind him. i had 3rd secured by a long shot, but only 1st and 2nd pay.
the guy that got 1st this week played an insane amount of games, i mean i played 10-12 hours on each fri, sat, and sun; and he was on playing them when i woke up and when i went to bed, i seriously don't think the dude sleeps. he def deserved 1st.
i only played the $75 sng sats to the 750k and i only used them as filler throughout the day. if i were to play either less MTTs or 45 mans i would think i would be able to win the sat challenge every week, not sure that would be wise for the $400 or not, i kinda doubt it, but i will look into it. the sng sats them selves seem like they should be pretty profitable esp with rakeback.
next weekend there isnt a sat challenge and no 750k, its a $535 1mill. sucks they aren't doing a sat challenge on it because i won the only 2 sng sats i played for it so far.
i do have a goal for this month. i been easily getting top 5 every month on FTP's monthly tournament leaderboard, which pays 3 $75 tokens and a freeroll.
usually getting 3rd isn't that hard, but 1st and 2nd are usually require a lot more points and i never got close to 1st yet.
i think i have a real shot at 1st this month and if not i should def get 2nd.
1st pays $1000 and 2nd pays $500... i am taking down the 1k though.
here are the current standings.. its very close.
one thing i think is kind of cool... it appears Taylor (one of the girls i posted in a previous blog entry) has found my blog, she left a comment on my last entry (unless its a hoax).
im kinda curious how she found my blog, did a reader use her services and tell her about it? or maybe she is tracking her traffic on her site (less cool) and saw some links coming from here.
if a reader used her services i would hope to get a review....

when sunday 1st started i was sure it was gonna be as horrible or worse than most other sundays. i had KK 4,329 times in the 1st several hours and only won 2 pots with them.
things started to turn around and i was winning 45 man sngs ( i won 4 of them, which is the most i have ever won in a day even though i once won 3 straight). and i built up stacks in a few tourneys.
i got pretty deep in both the 65k and the nightly 30r, but both were failures. im ok with that as those don't pay as much as the 150r.
i was starting to get pretty deep in the 150r on FTP, i was running hot, winning flips, sucking out, and holding up.
so i get to the final 2 tables of the 150r, and i was completely expecting to bust at that point since it seems that is a curse of mine. it also seems i was supposed to...
this was all in pre for all my chips and i won a very nice pot. i guess it was my turn, usually i have been on the other side of this. this was not my only suckout this tourney, i ran good.
and i made the final table with a descent stack...
i think i played the final table pretty well, although i did made 1 or 2 mistakes (1 kinda bad, don't wanna talk about it). i was up and down the whole time at the table, but kept recovering when i got knocked down and took it down...
heads up didn't last long at all, only 2 hands, he had 1 mil and i had 2 mil... in this hand i limped the SB and he checked. he checked the flop and i min bet, he just called. he check raised 40% of his stack on the turn, and i put him all in.... and B00M!!
this feels so good if is impossible to explain. i was all excited and my heart beating fast, was def a rush. it hasn't felt anywhere close to that good to win a tourney since my 1st win ever.
guess this isn't my last day playing MTTs... either Monday or Wednesday is, depending if i play tomorrow or not (just kidding obv, but seems like every time i decide a certain day is my last i come up with a win).
time for a hooker?

Monday i bubbled 3 FTs and got an 8th, pretty shitty... today i was taking a ton of sick beats all day and running into monsters, but i run pretty hot in a $26 FTP tourney that made up for it.
it was a pretty fun FT, i ran good and no one even thought about playing back at me...
i also did ok in a PLO rebuy tourney...
i been playing a lot of sngs, the 45 mans obv and i been playing some single table sat sngs to the 750k, and some super turbos. sucks because i been getting slaughtered in all of them... :(
