****damn, poor guy has a week like this, and no one plays? That's a boo... I was signed up but forgot about it until I got a msg about the tourney being cancelled... :-(
****because I'm in the 3r on FTP instead - only in for $9 with a decent stack post break - I threeball a raiser with AK on the button and have a blind JAM FOR 120BB... and I figure, WTF let's flip... he naturally shows AA, I river Broadway.
So that was nice. Yeah, I suck.
Later on, same villain recovers and rebuilds a stack, openraises 2.5x in EP, I defend in the BB with Ks7s and over 50BB behind. Flop 9s7x2s (WHEE). I check, he bets 2/3 pot, I raise 3x his lead, he JAMS and covers me.... I have to call with this draw and see JsJx... and I don't get there.
J on the turn, fills up on the river.
As bad as I play, he's 50-50 vs. almost anything I can have when I raise him on that that flop.
People are so smrt. Me also.
****Wife picked up the Glee Season 1 DVD today (I didn't think it would get here for XMas - ergo, I didn't buy it as a gift) and it's the FREAKING NUTS.
****OK, here's the yearly analysis.
-about +30% ROI for the year on MTT/SnGs, up over 7K
-given that I started out with about 1K - not bad grinding
-Even though I spiked a handful of final tables in big MTTs and came reallyreally close to making some big runs - I need to play them less because...
-I light up SnGs, one or two table, and need to play them more.
-I won plenty of SnGs, and finished strong in some MTTs, but didn't close out anything over 100 players.. :-( almost double digit wins in tourneys between 30-100 players, but not the big brass ring...
-I hardly played any cash - which is good, I know I'm a fish in online ring games.
-The absence of a BBT5, and decline of Blogger games, is likely going to kill my ROI in 2010.
So for 2010, I just want to freaking TAKE DOWN a tourney over 100+ players. keep a nice positive overall ROI...
And yeah, making a satellite to the WSOP ME or some other major live event later in the year (once BabyGirlHeff is older) would be the Sam Cassell sized nuts....
Happy New Year, everyone....
