  • I'm playing for the win

    ... I'm going to play my best fast tourney strategy and if that means I go out 762 of 797 because my opponent rivers a better 2 pair, so be it. You can't get deep without playing poker, you can't play without committing, you can't commit without risking early out. Points be damned. Playing poker is more fun than folding to the money. Let's get it on....
    I'm quoting myself because I said that just before I went on a string of bad breaks (and a little bad play) that took me down to the depths of the leader board. It was depressing, loosing AA to QJ, having AA pop up when I had KK, getting four-flushed, ... I sunk to inside the bottom 2%.But the thing about a fast tourney strategy is that it's just like that. Inside the game it's move on up or move on out.

    The thing is, one win wipes out a whole slew of bad beats.

    There are still a bunch of you who delay, delay delay, even though it's like shooting yourself in the foot. You fold 1BB even though you have 4-1 odds to call. Well, not me. I've won once and the only thing I want to do is win again.

    Points be damned.
