hemuliA 23-year-old guy from Finland traveling the world playing tennis. Besides tennis, I love to grind MTTs and SnG's on FTP and PokerStars.
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 last round of qualifications, which was a bit confusing for me when I had a good feeling on the court.. Played actually that game the worst match so far in egypt... And this week lost in second round in singles but made to the finals in doubles, so tomorrow will be the final.. I am not really focusing on the doubles (didn't even play it on the 2th and 3th week) so this was already a good surprise for me and maybe this will be a bigger surprise tomorrow when we win
And then poker, I tried to get to the top of the leader board in the Full Tilt Mtops I was after maybe 30 event at the 20th place and at best I was 11th... Didn't play many mtops and I was running actually pretty good, even in a game as omaha ( have no clue how to play that) ended up just before final table 10th.. So either omaha is really a big game of luck or maybe I had a really good run? Probably both but then because had no good time to grind tournaments so decided to let the mtops leaderboard go.
Last time I remember my bankroll was around 7k but now had few bad days especially sunday was really bad when I tried to get to the sunday million threw a satellite and ended up paying more then the buy in to get in the tournament and didn't even cash! After that night Ive been quite tilty I start with normal games and when I lose them I want right away action and dont want to wait for the games to start .. Full Tilt doesn't have enough games in the higher buy in sng games so I find myself getting to the the hyper games much more easier then before trying to win back the losses and of course one day thats gonna and already did a lot of money... I lost one day don't remember the right amount but all the cash games and sng I played more then 1k for sure... And yesterday I was playing a 600d HU hyper (Im stupid or what?) and today lost already 200d to HU hypers were the EV graph was + for sure but thats HU hyper... And now I have a bankroll of around 5.5k so little bit down from few weeks.
Now the question is WHAT GAMES i will continue to play and most important WANT to play?
Tournaments are always nice, but I have a hard schedule with the tennis and have problems to play them every evening...
Sng were I think I have the edge on others, the bigger buy ins are filling so slowly on FTP and what I heard on PS the 30d+ are really tough games to play +ev without supernova... So changing site? Dont think games are filling faster then ftp...
Cash game, well what can I say about cash games.. I think I should first of all learn to play cash game before getting in that game
In fact, the game were I think have the best future is omaha, I saw my coach playing omaha and he was making big bucks and when he played on low limits he was saying that they are so bad etc and when I tried to play for few hours (0.05/0.10 blinds) found that I was not even the fishiest one on the table! But of course with that limit there is always a fishy one playing omaha
Hopefully on the next blog I have something good to say, like I FOUND MY GAME I WANT TO PLAY!
Well until next time brooooos
