Pushed to the ( Fixed) Limit!
I watched another fine Spacegravy vid on Sngicons last night before grabbing a quick 1/2hr of sleep and then hitting the tables at Party.As I was feeling so tired and chatting to Rosie I stuck to the $22's with a few $11's thrown in and despite the usual beats and suckouts I came out about $100 up overall from those games.
At some point Rosie suggested playing a $6 ,$1k gtd MTT.I'd come close to registering for both the Daily $50k gtd on Stars ( $55 entry) and was tempted by the $55,$18k gtd on Party, but had opted to play turbs instead as I wanted action not a fold fest!
I agreed to play the $1k gtd as it was only $6,seemed to have a low number of entrants( 260 starters) and I could keep playing turbos too.After getting the blame for landing Rosie in a slow speed ( now turbo format) Double or Nothing game on Stars the other night I think it's only fair to point out that the $1k gtd Mtt Rosie insisted I must play ( well not quite but it helps the story!) turned out to be FFL! ( that's Fixed Fuckin' Limit)
The only other FFL games I've played have been by mistake too and although it's still Holdem I don't have much of a clue as to how to play FFL profitably and had never played an FFL Mtt before.Thankfully the player pool seemed populated by donks who hadn't seen a deck of cards before and around 300 years after we started, Rosie and I had somehow made the top 20.I think it definitely helped that we were both gunning for the top 3 and not too worried about stalling to make the top 30 and a $9 ( or whatever it was) profit.
I think Rosie went out around 14th and headed off leaving me to battle my way through more donkeys before hitting the final table.To cut to the chase I came second for $211.I would have saved a screenshot, but in all honesty as soon as the game was over I was more annoyed at myself for not closing it out properly against a player I reckoned I had an edge over.On reflection it was 5.30am,I was shattered,hungry and have little FFL experience so I should have been more pleased by my finish position.I rolled up another to celebrate and took down a wee $14 super turb on FT before bed.
Just watched Rangers go down 1-0 to St Mirren.We didn't play well and they hit their two outer and scored with their only shot on target.
Almost time to walk my boy and give Step A a lift home.If I stop and buy the Yorkie Puds ( not the famous Betfair blogger!) the ex Mrs A has promised Sunday dinner which sound like a tastier option than the ready made carbonara I had planned!
I'm not sure if the s-man is visiting yet tonight.If so I don't expect I'll be too focussed on the Bloggerment and RTR games but I will be there!
Back during the week.Thanks for reading....
