Playing better.. I guess..

I have been tearing up the 25/NL table. I am happy with that. I ran my KK into AA last night. I do not think there was any way I was getting away from that hand as the flop came AKJ. Oh well.

I finished 30th or so in a 560 person 10$ MTT. I finished 6th in a 180 person 4.40 SNG. The bankroll is building.

Duggles wrote a nice little piece on my play in the 180 person. I totally disagree with his Poker conclusion though. The situation was this. I pushed in the SB with 11K worth of chips into a guy who had 22K in chips. I had A7o, he had QJc. As Duggle mentioned it was a 60/40 coin flip. I think it is a bad call though. You are risking half your chips when each spot pays exponentially more. I only pushed because I had an M<10 and figured a naked ace was probably better than what the next guy had. I later saw the guy go out in third when he called the big stacks all in with J2h. He is a flushtard and their is nothing else to say. If he had just waited a little he would have outlasted the small stack and made twice as much. I beleive I made the correct move. period. I was right. I lost. I exploited an edge and got called by a moron. Period. End of story.

I have never claimed I am not emotional about my game. Hello? Have you not read this blog before? I usually try not to call people idiots but on occassion I can not resist. I think 6th sucks. I do not care that I beat 174 people. Hell I did not care when I beat 530 people. It still is not first. I play for the ring baby, second place is not for me. I play with some emotion and I think it helps me in some ways because if I am uninterested in the game I play like crap. While it is true I should not expect brilliance in any low limit game I play it can still be aggrevating.

I am officially boycoting the DADI this Wednesday. Even though Mookie agreed to cancel his tourney it is my favorite MTT and I for one think it could be on a different day.

You didn't mention how you misplayed AA against that over-aggressive player -- that probably would have given you 10k or more chips in padding.

"There is nothing wrong w. being emotional just adapt that emotion to your game.... "

That's what Jennifer Harman said during an interview last season of High Stakes Poker.

And stop "making plays" at people who don't understand them.

Save that for 2/4 NL and up.

Certainly not a $4 SnG.
