A good Sunday, and a WCOOP dream

Well, I got a new job, and to celebrate, I wanted to try to qualify for the Sunday Million. I won a qualifier, unregged, and then won another so I played. Did not win any money in it, got about half way through the field, and then had 9s lose to 4s on the river 4. Was kind of sickening. I managed to take my $55 deposit and run it up to about $270, which was awesome. Going to play the Hundred Grand tonight.

I have also decided to try to qualify for some of the WCOOP events. The ones I am going to try to play are:

1. Event #26: $215 No Limit Hold'Em with $1,000,000 Guaranteed.
2. Event #28: $1,050 No Limit Hold'Em (2-Day Event) with $3,000,000 Guaranteed.
3. Event #43: $215 No Limit Hold'Em with $1,000,000 Guaranteed.
4. Event #45: $5,200 No Limit Hold'Em Main Event (2-Day Event) with $10,000,000 Guaranteed.

If I get some success in these, obviously I would fill in with some more, but those are the main four. Going to start the steps this week.

A good start

I lost $4 on the day, but was a good day. I deposited $75 (was going to be $125, but kept some to pay for other things). Did not do very well, and it dropped to $20ish.

Then, instead of just tilting my money away (like I normally would), I did what people have told me to do for a long time, and I dropped down levels. Also played a double or nothing to win some money (which I did), but more importantly to get some confidence back in my game. Got 1st, 4th, and 6th in some $3.25 45 mans, a 12th in a 90 man, and then the double or nothing match. That was all in about 7 or 8 games.

I was making a lot of smart folds, which I never do. I am always the one who tells myself I am beat, but let's call 75% of my stack just to see it. So I hope I can keep working that out of my game, as the results last night may be a showing of why you fold.

The other thing that was weird was I got pocket aces to no action four times and pocket kings no action three times. That was just frustrating to no end. haha.

Going to keep the deadlines the same and see how today goes, but I am really happy with my game...for now...
