I had my biggest score of the year in online tournaments, which again, this is pretty pathetic: I got 3rd in the 50k on ftp for about $9k.
It was a disappointment getting 3rd because I feel like I should have won the tournament, and was unfortunate in a few spots.
Now let me clarify that I am, in no way, shape, or form, an ONLINE tourney grinder. I would have to guess I've played around 200 tournaments online this year (most of which were either on Sundays, or scoop/ftops events), and I have run pretty awful.
Granted, I have probably not been playing my best game either. It felt good to at least go deep in an online tournament for once. So I felt like I had some positive energy and momentum going into Saturday. I was planning on playing everything on Saturday; all the big tourneys and ftops.
I started the day off with a 5th place finish in the 215 PLO on stars for like 1800$. Was fairly upset with my finish as I had a big chiplead when we were 12 handed.
I kept on grinding in the other tournaments, and got to the point where I only had 4 left.
I was fairly deep but not in the money yet of the 55R on stars, ftops 2500, ftops mini 250, and ftops 100R PLO.
I ended up cashing in the 55R busting in 23rd place, and busted the mini ftops shortly after. So i was left with just the 2500 and the 100R PLO. I was really focused and felt like I was playing really well in both tourneys.
When the 2500 reached the bubble (90 get paid), we were down to the final 10 players on the PLO. The 2500 is a 2 day event, which will resume tomorrow, I finished day 1, 56th of 87 in chips, and then was ready to focus solely on the PLO final table.
I played really well, and was fortunate to have most of my hands hold along with making some very good plays and took down the whole thing. GIMME DAT FTOPS JERSEY!!!! It's my biggest online score by far: First place, $86,602.50!!!
Hopefully, I will have a good showing in day 2 of the 2500 tomorrow along with all the other tourneys I will be playing. Online tourney grinding is fun when u win lol.
This score couldn't have come in at a better time as we are approaching the WSOP and it's always good to have momentum going into that.
In closing, I would just like to say one thing: I'M GOING TO WIN A BRACELET THIS SUMMER! Just wanted to let all of you know! I will be posting updates and results from my events at the WSOP frequently while I'm out there, so stay tuned in, should be a fun summer.
