so I'm managing to try to get out of my funk in the best way I know how... grind PLO8 as much as I can.
I had bunch of SnGs the other night after I crashed out of the WSOP satellites where I really had to concentrate and survive just to cash, then finally started catching cards and spots to take the damn things down - which was a good confidence boost...
Then today I decided to late register into the MSOP#41 tourney because it was PLO8 and I'm a sucker for any large field four-card MTT.
24th of 1400. Almost five hours for only $70 profit. Yay, I guess?
I mean, PLO8, for me, is a matter of finding good spots to make people drop hands, and value betting your nizzles b/c some donk will pay you off chasing a three-out scooper almost everytime. So I never remember that many difficult or sketchy spots - usually it's like, there's a raise and reraise in front of me, I have a sketch hand like AQ36 one suit and drop it after a few seconds.
Any way, I roached for a few hours until I finally got above average near the bubble, hit a high water mark of about 100K right before I busted. To be honest, even with three tables left, most of the rest of the field was LOL meh.
I need to play more of these things. There's definitely value left, not everyone's solid. :-)
