A good day at the races
I was trying to play carefully, and I think the extra concentration helped. In the one that I bubbled, an early player raised and I had TT and was pretty close to the move-in zone. I pushed, and of course, he had KK. It was a bad play on my part 4-handed. I basically traded my good equity to cash (three places paid) for a coin toss at best if the guy had AK.
I found for once that I really didn't have the good concentration I usually do playing heads-up at one SNG while handling several other tables.
The play at the various SNGs were pretty weak. I found many people folded to my constant raises when I was in the move-in zone, particularly four-handed when I would have something like Kx. I had to push, so I did, and I kept collecting blinds. I placed second in that SNG.
Other times, when other people pushed, I would have them dominated with a better ace, or when I pushed, I still would have them. (Of course, in one of the more expensive events, I did double up with A5, flopping a 5, vs AQ).
Earlier in the day, I made a little bit of money playing donks heads-up. It was pretty fun. Donks would fold to bluffs that were timed like MLB pitches. You know, bet, bet, bet, bluff. Bet. Bluff.
This one guy went all-in before me on the flop with an A. I had A8. He had JJ. LOL.
Today, I'm pretty tired, not having a very good sleep. I'm subbing for another editor, and it's a lot like being Helo as XO on the deck of Galactica. I am always pretty calm with lots going on. I think it's the multi-tabling that helps.
