Got a monkey off my back!!

After playing 186 $6 KO tourneys, I finally won one!!! It was so sweet a victory that I allowed myself a quick fist pump before settling down to the other 11 tables that were open. Hopefully this is the start of things to come.

Played another 31 games today and had some good results in amongst them. I was fully concentrated on every decision and did not manage to time out until my NEW wireless mouse decided to die for some unexpected reason! From now on it will remain in the charger when not in use.

The new PT3 (Beta version) now calculates the bounties you have earned so the stats are a little more accurate. However, there is just one little issue that I noticed

Scenario of a $6 KO:
PLayer 1 - ALL in 10BB with AK
PLayer 2 - ALL in 10BB with AK
PLayer 3 - ALL in 8BB with AJ

Player 1 and Player 2 win splitting the $1 bounty. However PT3 thinks that you have the entire bounty so this is incorrectly shown in the results. The only reason I mention this is because of those stats geeks may want to update their results after the session.

Tomorrow is Friday and I hope to play a minimum of 100 games before going to bed and repeat again on Saturday.


  1. Hi. I listened to a few of rainman's podcasts and read some of his students bloggs and I am very impressed. how do you get onto his course? do you need to prove you are already a winning player or is it demonstrating willingness to work hard / volume? I've been learning cash but recently discovered I really enjoy SNG/small MTTs but I'm a complete MTT newb!

    any advice appreciated.
