And am I posting too many new posts? . . . . . :p
Having posted negatively I then get a 3rd and 7th in 2 x 90 manners yesterday and am back up to the $250 profit mark for the month.
However I have a question around whether I am playing the game correctly around the bubble and want to give an example as a MTT yesterday is a prime example of what I do. I know I’m TAG and yesterday played the $11 Super Stack on FT that started at 6pm with just over 1600 fish and the top 162 paid.
4 and a half hours later we are down to 172 and I’ve got 23k chips and though the average is a lot higher I can easily make the min money.
Blinds are 1000/500 with an ante and I’m 4th to bet and get dealt AK. There is a raise to 2k and a further raise to 6k from a serial raiser and I decide to shove. Both call and the early raiser shows 1010 and the serial raiser AK (so tbh I was wrong about him on this occasion). 10 on the flop and I’m gone.
The question is should I have just gone for the min cash knowing that it normally goes a bit mad after the bubble bursts and try and ladder a couple of dollars or was it right to try and triple up to approx 70k and be in the top 20/30 or so?
Min cash was $19 and then it went up a couple of $$ a time.
This isn’t a one off at all as sometimes it works and obv sometimes it won’t but it was $3.5k ftw and after my previous post and having outlasted 90% of the field I wanted to give myself a fair crack.
I suppose I’ve answered my own question with the thought process around it but would be interested in any feedback. (It’s supposed to be a poker blog after all)
Hope your all well blah blah
