  • Top 50 skill league

    As some of you know i managed to qualify for the premier skill league in just 6 days coming from 10000th ish to finish 312th after trying my best if id of played all the way through and took it seriously i really do think i could of won it just my opinion well in just 6 days i earned 631.57 points i was on 1671.23 and i finished on 2198 points the winner finished on 2794 and i only played properly for 6 days so if you the math if id of gotten in and around the same points for another 6 days id of been up there and all the other days to go as well so IF id of taken it seriously and played them all from the beginning but im happy with what ive achieved and ive set myself a goal i want to finish in the top 50 this month for the skill league i think i will achieve this maybe higher who knows but if i can play to my best every game then i may just win it maybe a little to confident there haha will update everyday when it starts stedds

      so the 1st game went good then since that ive been card dead in all games missed quite a few sorting my sleeping pattern back out as the time are set differently and there a lot worse so been trying to get a good sleep in and worked out i will only be sleeping 4 hours if that if i run good in the 20:00et game so yea been getting a few extra hours in to sort the pattern out thats sorted ish lol but just running on a down swing at the minute and trying to adjust to the play of the skill league studying the players more taking alot of notes colour coding players heard a few saying to play looser in early stages as the structure is pretty good but being card dead cant really get a lot of hands in not even getting suited connectors like since the 1st game the first day ive not been higher that 8% in hands played over the coarse of a game tried to loosen up but when the cards arnt with you and people are raising alot its hard to take more chances and ive noticed the pots get bloated really qucik in these but hopefully will start running good sooner rather than later

        update missed nearly two days of play having to sort some stuff out caught the last game and got in the money to put some points on the board although not many for some reason ive just played the 08:00et game made the final table for the first time and finished 1st WHOOP I WON MY FIRST PREMIER LEAGUE GAME dont no how leading up to the final table i only so the flop 20 times out of 259 hands and 32% of them hands were in the big blind that people had limped round to me and i got a free flop played 9% in small blind 3 out of 31 times and 6 out 199 times in other posistion which was 3% so total of 7% played the whole way through i dont no why but no one was calling my raises all the way through i was just picking up blinds when i did but as soon as i didnt play a hand there was action all over the place dont no what the reasons for that is maybe they looked me up or sin something anyone care to explain please lol i no these stats are way to low but i just haveent been getting action or the hands but obviously the hands i do get called with ive been making maximum value out of them so thats a plus i think hopefully can keep this up and make my goal come true

                          Remember your image is as important as the image you have on others. Don't just call someone a luckbox because they beat your premium with a worse hand. It's easier raising with 66 than calling with it. If you called with TT then that could be your leak and not his push.

                          If you use a HUD (I do) people and players can change their game so a HUD is not as effective in a MTT or STT as it is in cash.

                          I lasted 2 months in the Premier League before being relegated and I feel I'm an OK player. There's a lot of decent players there that value this tournament because of the rewards. Just don't discount players because they bad beat you.

                          The premier league only requires 5 games iirc. You don't need to play every game. Just play 5 and evaluate your score, if you think you need more points then play more but you don't need to play every game.
