Rebuy Fest

Last night was the last night to qualify for the Poker World WSOP qualifier. Last nights tourney qualified you for tonights weekly tournament which the top 4 of that tournament go to the finals which is held tomorrow. I guess technically, you could buy in for each touranment. Tonights is $100 and I think tomorrows is $400. I played in last nights tourney and finished a disappointing 19th (out of 29). To say that there was loose play would be an understatement. There were 43 rebuys and 15 add ons. I saw one guy rebuy 3 straight hands. Wow. You won't hear me saying that I didn't get any cards because I did. What I didn't get was flops. Any major race that I was in, I lost. Ironically, I went out on about the exact same way as I did the forum challenge. I had 55 and was in a race with AQ. Queen on the flop and an Ace on the turn. Talk about deja-vu. Yikes. Unless you are willing to play the rebuy game (which I don't really like), it is hard to accumulate chips. I was the chip leader about 30 minutes into it; but then went flop dead. Oh well. I may take tonight off to be totally refreshed to play in tomorrow's final. Right now there are 21 people in it with the potential for 8 more.

I played 87 hands of 5/10 also and was up 15.33 BB/Hr ($115). So given that play minus the $42 for the tourney (I did rebuy once on the last hand before the break), I was up $73 for the day. That puts my winning streak at 11 sessions (+1,356) and ties my personal best. I also surpassed my previous high on bankroll so I don't have too much to complain about.

As of right now, I am still planning on doing all SNGs for the month of July. My ring play has improved greatly for that and I am very happy about that. Tomorrow, I will share my current SNG stats and my goals for the month of July.
