BLOG: My Second Week in Egypt

Tags: blog, blogger TNSTNS
Blog post published on Saturday, March 08, 2014, written by hemuli.
My first week in Egypt was great both for tennis and poker. I made it to the semifinals in singles and also had a nice cash in poker. The second week I had problems getting my best game going on the tennis courts. I felt the ball quite okay but didn't have the last nail in the coffin to bring the matches home... I lost in the second week in the second round and in the third week I lost in the la[...]   Read more » My Second Week in Egypt

Good luck at the tables and on the court, btw the photo with the socks that accompanying this blogette is totally priceless, so its worth a read just for that alone.
A bit of editing and trimming on long sentences would be wise sometimes, so it could be resulted in a more coherent text, but you have some nice writing chops for sure.

Im sure I mentioned before that you are not kidding when you're tilting hard, but who am I to advise you some closer bankroll management, its your money anyway. Altough its not delightful reading about how to loose 25% of your roll in one day.

wow 600d hu hyper -.- thats asking for trouble isnt it :=)

no seriosly, just stay away from hypers or if not at least make sure you got more than 10x BI (so no 600d hypers with 6k br! Big Smile).

great blog as usual, just a bit sad though... i was always wondering how difficult is it to stick to your normal game, limits and all, once you win something big. Apparently, not that easy Smile

What sort of tournaments are you involved in? Is it parallel to the ATP or soemthing?
How much can you win for a tournament?

Sounds like fun doing that and poker for life.

Well its not easy once you hit something good like I did to stay on the same levels and play the same way.. I found that the levels I played before I had no motivation what so ever to play them. Bigger buy ins I started to play but they were filling so slowly so started to play hypers and then started to tilti so much easier then in the turbos when the games were filling all the time.. I had no problems with 5+ tables when I had to play all the time and wasnt thinking at all about the flips I lost or even when I had once in a while a good hand I lost.. But anyway, now I am heading back to finland to practice more some tennis and hopefully get to play few poker games aswell.. In this moment had a few beers extra to get a good sleep in the plane or atleast hopefully Thumbs Up
I will reply to all questions in few days if you have Smile or maybe in few hours if I quick before I leave the nice EGYPT country!

I read my message again.. And understand when I said I have a few extra beers I really mean I had a few extra beers Tongue so sorry for the english

Thanks for the reply I will try to make it better but I have a problem when I write and get excited I just cant stop some how the sentences when my mind is "flowing" with ideas.. I will try in the next blog to stop at some point Tongue

Good luck to you in the final of the tennis and good luck to you in trying to win at Omaha. This game baffles me and i take my hat off to the guys who actually make a lot of money at this

I would definately recommend to start and play and learn in the same time omaha.

i can almost guarantee that once you get the grip of the game you'll never want to come back to no limit holdem. A good PLO player on a profitable site can make profits that even top players can't get on holdem.

Cheers mate, PLO is very soft as you found out, but you have to be able to deal with the swings, it's huge and a couple of bad beats could put you in tilt mode and you might lose more money. But if you strong you can make huge amount of money. Good luck enjoy your PLO games they fun and very challenging!

I was reading your post and i just blocked when i got to the part where you explain you ended up paying more than the buy-in of a tourney because you tried it through a satellite, obviously more than once. You are an experienced player and you must have saved good money before by trying satellites to enter big tourneys instead of buying the ticket to the main event at first. Thinking about this, i realized i can count through my fingers the number of times i actually got to paid places in satellites, which means i giving profits to poker rooms on those fields. Next time i think about going to a sat to try the big won, i better save some more and go imediately to the main event!

Best of luck chief.

You might want to consider hitting the casinos (in Egypt). Kinda strange though... no Egyptians are allowed to gamble, or step foot in their own casinos. You get those drunk business men, or an overdressed couple... When you coem to think of it, its not much different form the hotel scene from Fear and Loathing.

Just a suggestion..
