    Ok so i know its not Jan yet but no time like the present

    I decided on 1.50 sit and go's
    so far 6 played and profit of $11.92 woohoo.

    Currently on chapter 3 of my book.

    have started playing Knockouts as part of the 1.50 level and just noticing hope loose they are.

    maybe its a glich but in 3 games nocked out 10 players for extra $2.70 and this was still playing my same nitty ABC tag game. last game no knock outs and blinded to push /fold mode crushed by KK.

    ok off to watch some tv more later

          I like the review step. There is a lot to be learned there, a good way to find leaks.

            A review of Two STT's so I figured it was time to give STT's another go. I read in the PSO forums that the knockout format can be quite soft. So I fired up one "normal" and one knock out. (I also had an MTT playing for a total of 3 tables) So I played both formats in the same manner. I think! So first off the knock out, you get a bonus of 27cents if you knock someone out. Early on i made a note of the VPIP stats at the table. 48, 52, 5(me), 43, 43, 57, 5. This was towards the end of level 3. As you can see two players have been eliminated already. The preflop action in this early hand (the first I played) was pretty typical to this point. Notice the two limpers before I act. Now normally I would raise more with two limpers but didn't want to bloat the pot too much with what after all is a moderate holding out of position. I decided i should put my nitty tight image to good use and play a few hands I normally would not play. However this is something that can get you in trouble. Note the attempted bluff... ok so got lucky which is always nice, very next hand same cards same result.. now I know I have 66 both hands but I feel much better about the second one given the two relative stack sizes. we played 3 handed for nearly 30 hands until which pretty much sealed the deal for me, I went on to win the game and collect 5 bounties (4 knock outs plus my own) On to the reg STT VPIP Stats at the same time in the game 17,5 (me), 20, 27,14,30 So although the table is playing tighter we have actually lost one extra player. My first hand (i played)was a BBS I have no idea what Slapgore was thing in this hand I can only assume he misread his hand. He did get some revenge very next BB though However given the big calling station I had marked him as I nearly folded to his re-raise pre-flop, but decided I could risk some chips and hope to hit big as he would then spew his stack my way. But when I missed time to go away. Ever have one of those hands when your opponent just doesn't want to go away? Interestingly at this point the table tighten up (bubble effect) and i stole lots of pots uncontested. it was all looking rosy after the bubble broke until one villain finally picked up a hand, now is that fair? I managed to hand about and get heads up finally losing and taking second place. Conclusion Both games were similar, and defiantly beatable by playing simple ABC Tag style poker. I attempted a few steals I didn't need to try, but at the same time as we got towards the bubble stealing was defiantly profitable. I shall be trying some more of these soon Grade b

                            not a great week !!!

                            Added 10 to BR (to play the promo)

                            current Roll
                            SnG - $177.91
                            ring games - $99.25
                            other (includes the extra 10 ) $28.67

                            some normal variance here i think although my other is shrinking faster than i was hoping i may have to stop playing the big $2.20.

                            currently 486th in open league

                            ok bring on the next week.....
