back at the grind, meh

So, Wednesday night I try to run a few tourneys...

AIPS Bingo/Limit Omaha-8
Mookie
the Mini-FTOPS #1...

over 16,000 people in FTOPS 1? Jeez, it's not like I have the time for a tourney that deep, but whatever... I fire it up and let the shrapnel fly..

Mookie: I really need to pay attention to this tournament more when I play it - I miss value bets, make really bad moves that work in every other tournament but this one - Stop trying to make someone fold a pair here, that doesn't happen. Anyhow, I try to TARP postflop and it backfires.

Normally, I just shove the turn, but w/o reads, I figure I can milk it better this way. Oh well. As played, when I shove the river and get called, I expect to see a handful of better holdings. KTo isn't one of them.

Full Tilt Poker Game #14595333268: The Mookie (106220576), Table 3 - 30/60 - No Limit Hold'em - 22:38:18 ET - 2009/09/09

AIPS: as I suspected, there are a number of soft Omaha spots in the field peppered with people who actually know what they are doing. I bounce around, as is usual in these tournaments, between stacking up from these players, and giving it back when they spike. I finally get some momentum, and bink Scott out of a tourney again...

Apparently people only defend their blinds with some variation of AAxx in this game. :-)

I must learn to crack aces better, lol. If only I was holding KTo in my hand.....

I stay above an average stack for two hours, then FAIL trying to blow someone off of A9 after they flop a nine, because TOP PAIR IS GOLD IN A RAISED POT, JERRY... but I recover... then someone openshoves for 7bb, I snap call with A9 in the big blind, they show 98, 98x flop..... and I get bounced by a 2+2 AllStar who's playing wide open and runner-runners me to get there.. 6499 of 16750...

so in short, a waste of 40 bucks.....

There are a lot of WCOOP and miniFTOPS tourneys I'd like to play, but between the huge fields and limited time I have - I don't know if I can really run any more of these... beyond the Sunday tourneys, there's some PLO8 that intrigues me next Wednesday - but that's about all that fits into my schedule or bankroll.

Anyhow, baby shower upcoming this weekend. NFL begins. Should be fun regardless.

Let me guess, you were drinking/otherwise distracted on that 449 flop?

Does it hurt having the horseshoe that far up your ass?

If I played every limit hand scared of what the blinds are holding before I openraise, I'd never get anywhere to begin with in these tournaments.

Given stack sizes here, where I'm dealing with about 5 effective BB, I'm pounding the pot if I raise preflop and don't completely brick the flop.

Spewy? Sure, especially when the blinds wake up with a hand. But often they don't. Sometimes you can piss uphill and still stay dry. It happens.

The day I raise/fold to a threebet pre in any limit game is the day I just quit playing altogether.
