  • Rob Sharona's Road to Las Vegas!

    Hello one and all.

    I should be cashing in my first ever Weekly Round 2 tournament, which is cool because this is the first one I've ever entered! I have 5 tickets, but I have never had the time to play one!

    I'm currently sitting in 19th out of 1242 in tournament 787737166, so fingers crossed and no mistakes!

    Let's see if I can't bink this!

              I hate to say it.. but due to all the chips already in the pot, the opp WAS priced into the hand. They only had 30.7% pot equity and their hand against even a tighter range of 10% is worth 35.1%.. so it was a +EV play for them to be all-in.

                Out in 193!
                Good for $1.00. But $1.00 out of nothing at all is good by me!

                In terms of the actual tournament there were some terrible plays by me, and a fair bit of bad luck, so the good situation I was in was ultimately wasted.

                But, happy to cash in my first MTT of the challenge!

                  Glad to hear you booked a cash. Roslyn_akka was in that tourney too. She's doing a similar challenge to you, and is proving that it's possible to build a roll playing freerolls.

                      Just binked 7th place in a 45man $0.25 SNG for 40.36.

                      Up to $1.11!!

                      I actually feel like I played the whole thing without any mistakes, which is very pleasing. But, what do I know...

                          Just found out I got a Big Band stamp on my latest blog post. Whoever stuck that on it, thanks very much indeed!

                            Just got 6th place in the PSO Knockout Festival. I used my ticket and my whole $1.10 bankroll (!!!!!!!!!!) to enter, but it paid off.
                            $2.24 for the cash, as well as 2 bounties. I had a little successful flutter on the $0.25 SNGs, so I'm now up to a life changing $2.85!

                            $2.85 is a lot harder to lose than $1.00 (hopefully!)

                              As a silver star you can buy a daily Chrome Star freeroll ticket in the Store.

                              Big numbers but easy to cash, just rock up and double up when you get a chance - and don't rebuy.
