Back in the Groove
After all my recent whining and moaning I finally had a good night at the tables last night!
I started out playing a few $16's with Al Eleven and once again not a lot was holding up.Just my presence at the tables seemed to act as a cooler for Al too as we both banged our heads off the variance wall.
Al was playing a $12 ,180 player turbo on Stars and tempted me into joining him.I've not played very many 180 player games because I've always felt it would be too hard to fight my way through so many donks.In that first game I semi-tilted/donked out just before the bubble with K6 ( in the bb) on a KQJ flop against slow played pocket Aces.At least I recognised I had let my game slip and I took a wee break before coming back for more.
My first big score came when I scraped a 2nd place in one of the $12 games for $396.The standard of play reminded me of the $6.50 turbs and I only came 2nd because when the bigstack shoved and with four of us left, the two other idiots called with weak hands.It was $25k chips v $240k aprox HU and I wasn't too upset at only coming 2nd.
I came 4th in my last 180 turb of the night ( $158 prize) after reraising the bigstack all in with A10.He thought about it, called with 66 and the board didn't help me.I also came 7th in another for $69.I've only played nine of of them and I'm sure the variance biatch will have a long barren run of beats just waiting for me in 'em, but right now I'm just happy to have had a decent night!
I'm also now over the $4k profit mark for sng's on Stars according to Sharkscope and have also reached my other goal of getting my Stars bankroll through the $3k barrier.
