  • Boobylops June Cowboy Challenge

    After a couple of months off due to illness I have started to grind away at these tournies again.

    It has been dificult to get back into the swing of things as most of my previous notes were no use as the previous regs seem to have moved on.

    Great to see you are back. It looks like your game has not suffered from the layoff.

    Good luck

      A really bad session, too tired to be playing if I'm honest.

      I am going to try a few things over the next 10 games so we'll see what happens.

          Kept the trial of new things going for 20 games with no real benefit, back to ABC grinding for a while.

            An Aside

            I felt a bit stale so decided to have a rest from this and played a 40+4c satty to the big 4.40, fully intending to take the tournament $ if i won a ticket.

            I duly cashed and got the $4.40 ticket but...........the big 4.40 was open and running for an hour so i find myself in a tournament way over my normal buy in (i usually play 10/25c mtt) and short stacked.

            What to do ?

            I decided to play it like an Open Skill League (check/clock/fold) and this is what happened:

            Entrants: 5794
            Places Paid; 765
            My finish: 335 for $9.96

            Unfortunately my hand replayer is not working but i went out with KK in SB against AQ off.
            I flopped a set and the opp goes on to river a flush !!!

            Not bad for a 44c + 1 rebuy + 1 Add on (total $1.24).

            My points ?

            1. If playing a satty expecting to take T$ make sure the target is NOT open lol.

            2. The much maligned Open Skill League does teach you patience and picking your spots.

            Now back to my 25c grind.

              The Big 4.40

              I railed the final table of the big 4.40 a while ago. The play was so tight you could steal from UTG, but nobody was stealing from any position. Perhaps you have stumbled on something that you can make very profitable.

              Good show

                70. #577982845.... $02.27.... $0.25.... 11/45.... $0.00..... $02.02


                A combination of bad beats,some experimentation and shockingly loose play by myself contributed to my worst run of games for some time.

                3 cashes in the last 50 games is not good enough and I am going to have to work exceptionally hard just to be able to complete the 100 games on my meagre remaining stake.

                  Much better set of 10, no messing about and concentration full on.

                  Now have the bankroll to complete 100 games, need to win $10.21 in the last 20 games to complete the challenge.

                    Just 3 games left to play and I need a win and a second to beat the challenge.........
                    will end up in profit whatever happens and that's all good.

                    I'm going to leave them for now as i've had a gruelling evening, played the Open league 6pm and came 59th and that took forever !!!

                    This month's challenge has been educational, I've tried some different stuff which has cost me financially, all in all though I think I will be better prepared for next month and will eventually take some money off Chris.

                            Considering I spent about 45 games of the hundred trying new stuff I am quite pleased,
                            overall in profit so not too shabby, lots of goals for next month now,

                            1. Beat the challenge

                            2. Qualify for Premier League (not sure if I will go for a high finish, I only played 24 this month
                            and am top 1000)

                            3. Try and cash in some PSO Series of Poker Tournies.

                            4. Play a lot of satties to stuff outside my normal bankroll.

                            5. Study
