  • Dr.Kauffer Takes on Cowboys Challenge

    Hey Folks,
    For those how dont know me, I'm Dr.Kauffer a PSO member for a few month now, which for me the best forum out there at the moment.

    I decided to take the cowboys challenge for the 2nd time, and find out if i can achieve the same result or better, after attending many of the free poker sessions that are provided by the PSO poker trainers. I am looking to do 1000 games at $0.25 buy in 45 man MTT. and grind the micros to upper levels, using the correct bankroll management, that i have learnt from the trainers.

    for now,

    Dr.Kauffer

          # tourny 1

          Hey Folks,
          My first $0.25 buy in 45 man just finished managed to turn profit in my first tourny,as the next picture will show. I will try to update my blog as i play the tournies.

          Playing Statistics:

          PokerStars Tournament #470650697, No Limit Hold'em
          Buy-In: $0.23/$0.02 USD
          45 players

          You finished in 5th place (eliminated at hand #70717074860).

          126 hands played and saw flop:
          - 1 times out of 19 while in small blind (5%)
          - 10 times out of 20 while in big blind (50%)
          - 4 times out of 87 in other positions (5%)
          - a total of 15 times out of 126 (12%)

          Pots won at showdown - 3 out of 4 (75%)
          Pots won without showdown - 3

          Note: this stats shows that i have played a tight agressive play, no much action, few hands played, as the decks wasnt kind to me at all, this game was all about pacience and take the few hands that i have been dealt to a showdown and win.

          Starting Bankroll $6.25
          Ending Bankrool $6.93

            Tourny #2

            Hey Folks,
            Here is my second tournement that i have played for my challenge,as my stats will show not a good start of the day.

            PokerStars Tournament #471109339, No Limit Hold'em

            Finished 45th place.

            Sumary
            Pick up AK UTG +2, UTG open for a 5x raise, i have decided to call, board was 3h 6s 9h i have decided that he could be doing it with AQ decided to shove all in to get him to fold, he called showing JJ, and took it down.

            1st-Mistake not recognizing that with his raise of 5x he could have already a made hand.

            2nd-Mistake, quiet coordinated board in my opinion after reviewing this hand, check the flop could have save me the tournement.

            3rd Mistake- over played AK

            Bankroll

            Starting - $6.93
            Ending- $6.68
