I am still at the PCA and getting knocked out of the Main Event felt like bubbling again. Luckily I was this time at the right side of the money bubble but now the difficult part started.There are 48 events to choose from and you can’t play them all. You have to make choices.
I always try to have a day off between two events so I can start fresh with the new event. After busting out of an event you have to be careful not to tilt and this prevents me from playing when I am not focused.
I decided to play the $1,100 8-game. Not because it’s a small event but just for the love of the game. It has such a variety of aspects and I like the fact that the game changes every round. There is a lot of action but at the same time very relaxing because most games are limit-games. There is a lot of play possible and you can wait for your best game.
I made day two of this event as well and I just busted out of the money with A-A-T-8 double suited to K-K-Q-J double suited. The A-Q-T flop was killing and although I didn’t made the money I was satisfied the way I played and it was a lot of fun.
My 3rd and last event was the $1,100 NLHE-event with 240 entries. I write this blog while I am still in this event (24 players left) so I don’t have a result yet. The good thing is that I made the money for the 2nd time in 3 events and while there is no $2,3 million for first we are still playing for a nice amount of money. There is a nice mix of young and older players in the last 24 so it’s everybody’s game at the moment. My first goal is to make it to the final table and of course I hope to win it. That would be a nice start of 2011.
At least, here is another advice for my readers:
Don’t forget that you have to think big but everybody has to start small. A side event is not the big Main Event but a win is a win and winning just feels great!
So let’s see if I can get make it to the final and let’s hope for a win. I will let you know the result on twitter (start following Marcel Luske @ http://twitter.com/marcelluske) or my website www.marcelluske.com later.
