Time To Grind

October 26th, 2009 Poker No Comments »

Back home and finally I got a chance to grind some online poker. The cash games have really been hit or miss lately for me, so I’m definitely seeing better results in tourneys. I’m not normally a morning person but I decided to get up early to make a big Monday morning assault today at the big tournaments. While I didn’t play in the majors today, I found some good-sizes tournaments that suited me and found them ridiculously soft. I got into a nice groove and turned off all other distractions such as email or PNW and my results spoke for themselves.

I picked up an early win in an $11 turbo tournament on 888 Poker for around $550 and that set the tone. I cashed in 8 of 14 tournaments, for two final tables and the one win for a very profitable and consistent day. Interestingly included in those results are cashes in Pot Limit Holdem, HORSE and the 7-Game, which I’m pretty happy with considering some of the games such as Omaha H/L, I play very rarely. The other final table I made was in a Pot Limit Holdem 6-Max event where I entered the final table in 2nd place and was disappointed to finish 4th. I was a little passive in a couple of spots and a mis-timed bluff against a fish, saw me get short and I busted short of the 1.8k first place prize. I feel I have a big poker online Australia result in me, especially in these Monday events where the fields are juicy juicy. I’ve just got to continue to stay patient and wait for good spots to strike, and if I have a bit of luck at the right time thrown in, then I think I can land something big.
