I bricked my first 21 tournaments of the day, but somehow it wasn't enough to bring me down! =)
The first part of my session was a little rough, getting some stacks early but watching them dissolve just as quickly. Fortunately I've never been one to just give up and unregister for the rest of the day, and it drives me crazy every time I see a friend of mine do that, ESPECIALLY on a Sunday.
I guess I just tend to just convince myself that the night session will be better ... and this time it was.
I managed to lucksack a final table in the PS $215 hyper-turbo, which is even more of a crapshoot than the name implies. I finished 7th for $4k, which wasn't bad because I had about 5 big blinds from 14 players on and somehow people just kept busting around me.
Then I went deep in a tournament that requires a tad more skill than that, the PS $215+rebuys. It's EASILY one of the toughest tournaments in online poker, probably the toughest, even. However I've always believed that I run far above expectation in it, and my stats are telling me the same now that I'm researching.
I've played 232 $200+r tournaments on PS and am up $114k in it for a return on investment of 81% ... a FAR higher ROI than I have in any buy-in level I play regularly.
As usual the final table was stacked. I even made a comment about how it always feels more like a home game between top online players than one of the bigger final tables of the day.
The short version of the final table for me was that I went in with the chip lead, spewed off a bit, then lost a pretty big flip with A♦ K♦ when Brandon Adams piled 4♣ 4♥ in my face.
I was still happy to have a profitable Sunday anyway, especially since 2011 has been nothing like 2010 for me in Sunday donkaments! Good game to my buddy Jordan Morgan who took a bunch of my chips and then chopped the tournament heads up for around $32k.
