Like I'm still sort of new the the whole poker stars layout, Finding games to play, the whole format really is still a little confusing. In my last post I decided I didn't like ring games and woud stick to sit on goes. well that was untill I started looking around in all the other poker forums.

Stumbled across the bigs this morning, I won't lie I enjoy the bigger style tourney more the and shorter ones, been grinding the sit and goes for almost a month and a bit now with no real success. Had a couple of placing here and there a couple of 1st.... nothing really big enough to brag about...

Anyway found a 5.30 big tourney this morning around 2am, wasn't sure if I was gonna play it cos I just finished a 13 hr stint, but had a go anyway....

Came in on late reg about 55 minutes in with a feild of 5-6 thousand still in play. Long story short I finished in the top 100 raking in $21 dollars my biggest win to date.

I think what really through me off my game was the way players were playing,  Like I try to stick to the tight agressive style promoted in Poker school, but O.M.G I couldn't beleive what players were comming in on, there was no real stradgy in most of there play, it was a free for all, all in or nothing. Maybe a couple of times a flop got play before all in went in pre trun but yeah I just and to mention that cos I was really shocked...

Quick re cap

2-2 went in 3-4 time to win everytime over A-K, A-Q even higher Pockets, A-anything was always called all in, most suited cards and most suited connectors.

I missed 5 or so hands folding pockets 8-8, 9-9, A-9, A-8. etc, After the 9-9 fold I started to play the same way, A-K, A-J my 9-9 would have won 180k pot. Changing my game style pushed me into the to 100. I don't think it was advisable but with blinds at 10k with 1.5 k ante, I could see a method behind the madness. Players were dropping like flies... lol

Anyway now I've found out how to enter sats to get into the bigger bigs so I think I've found me a new home for now...

Good luck at the tables,
