Good news / bad news

I played a lot better yesterday.  I was recognizing the flow of the game better and I’m pretty sure I corrected most of the leaks I was working on.  Unfortunately, this didn’t translate into winning money, as I dropped $500 or so.  Nonetheless, I’m pretty confident that I was playing better.

I actually donked around in some tourneys yesterday.  I played the Sunday Million, which accounted for $215 in losses and I also played the 10,000 FPP $2 million prize pool special event.  The value of that tourney was an overlay compared to the usual FPP redemptions, but I didn’t win anything.  I was on a decent stack (near average) as the bubble approached when I got AK on the button.  I shoved over an early raiser and we were racing when he called me with middle pair.  I couldn’t connect and now I was a short stack.  A couple of hands later, I found 22 first in and shoved my remaining chips.  I was called by something weak like Q8, but he hit one of his cards and I lost that race too.  Two quick coinflips and I was out.  I actually won $7.50 because several of us agreed to share 10% of anything we won and one of the four cashed and send me a few bucks (go Toro!)

I’m now up to 8,400 VPPs for the month, so all is well in terms of the number of hands.
