$1k - $50k Challenge - March 1st Report

Ok...Here's my summary of the day.

Tight play was in order with an insane amount of pots being opened or a ridiculous amount of limpers. The standard, IMO, was far worse than the last time I played 50NL - highlight was a 94/52 player over 70 hands, seriously - and Gravastar had the cheek to nick his seat :-(

Other highlights included me, grav and sp00n on one table, and then tonight me, grav and olliepower on another table which had the lowest players/flop % and lowest ave pot $ across the whole level. Why the other 3 tight players stayed for so long, I'll never know. Value on that table was like getting blood out of a stone.

Overall I did pretty good, up just over 9 buyins for the day. I ran insane good for the first 30 mins before hitting a bit of a brick wall, but finished strongly to book a solid profit. I'll probably try to win a couple more buyins at 50NL tomorrow before a 3 buyin shot at 100NL.

  • Those are some pretty sick all in calls that you have there.
    Definetly a good of getting value from crazy players like that. I noticed you are playing on FTP. Might see you on NL 100 soon then :P.
    Good luck with the challenge.

  • Sick day @ 50nl. Keep it up.

  • A good day's work there fruity. When we crossed on one of the tables I was 1 buy-in down, but ended up $0.75 in profit...that puts me on track to have $1023.25 by the end of March!

    What was the decision on whether PLO is allowed or not?

    GL today.

  • Nice play. I found the hand is easier to follow like this:
