Matt Stout had a massive Sunday yesterday, profiting over $55,000! Check out Stout's Sunday Report for an inside look at what it's like to play a full schedule of online poker MTTs.
Stout is completely honest about his profits and losses. Luckily this week it was all profit!
To those of you who read my last blog: you remember how much my last Sunday session sucked? Picture the exact OPPOSITE of that. =)
I definitely punted a few stacks today and didn't play my A-game in just about every spot like I expect myself to, but the horseshoe up my ass was just too big today to be ignored. I ran really ridiculously well in some tournaments and managed to cash more than 25% of the tournaments I entered for the day.
My roommate Jon Eaton and I were both top stacks in the Cake tournament as we started to get pretty deep. Fortunately we didn't have to play together until the final table, and 100% played it straight when we did. That donkey even shoved K-Q into my A-A after I raised from early position at the final table and put himself on tilt.
I'm sure my needling and the fact that I took over the chip lead in this hand didn't help much either!
I got a bit short during the heads up match, but managed to pull off a gigantic bluff and regain the chip lead.
We battled for a while before I executed a semi-bluff that I loved and definitely stand behind. My opponent somehow made an insane call with third pair after three-betting me with 6-9o pre. Sigh. 2nd place for $14.4k wasn't terrible for my first final table of the day though.
However, I still had some business to finish after that. I had a pretty big stack in the Sunday 500, which is one of my favorite tournaments because of the huge prize pool, great structure, and the fact that it is still the tournament that gave me my biggest online win ($105k, December 2008).
I got very lucky when I had flopped top two with K-Q. I got it all in after a Jack hit the turn, only to find out that my opponent had A-10. Not a problem, though, Kinggggggggggggballllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll!!! It was only a 300k+ pot, no big deal. :-D
I became a bit short near the final table bubble for a while, but was basically able to ride that lucksack King on the river right to the final table. I was completely in the zone and my opponents were constantly doing just what I wanted them to.
I ended up with a pretty big chip lead shorthanded, then was pretty close to even with the other two players when I picked up 9-9 and stacked off against A-A. I think it was standard to get it in, and that it was just pretty cooler-ish for three-handed play.
But anyone who frequently reads my blog knows, I refuse to focus on the negative and whine that I left almost $40k on the table against two unknown players. I had a ~$65k day, and life is good! I'm also near the bubble of the WSOP $1k NL right now with 16k at 300/600, so life is EXTRA good right now! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
