2012 & 2013
Previous year was really interesting. There were good times and unfortunately also times when I was really disgusted by poker and wanted to quit. First half of the year was good, I was about $3k up, but the best thing about this part of the year was that I played really well.
I started to play a bigger buy in tournaments, but unfortanetely I hit a brutal downswing. I just couldn't hit any score no matter what I did. The main reasons of this swing were variance, worse play of mine, stupid shots to higher limits and also the fact that I was playing pretty much only on Pokerstars. I think MTTs on PS are really though now in compare to PS.fr, FTP and small sites, also the fields are so huge that variance is absurd.
After terrible 4 months I finally hit $2k in $2r on FTP. I can't even think about where would I be now if FTP didn't relaunch. Well fortunetely it did, I hit that tourney and then also another where I have won $4.5k and the swing was over. I was about breakeven on live tourneys too, the best result was 23rd in deep turbo where 1st got about $10k and I lost JJ into 77 there.
Best hits this year:
$26 fo - 1st for $4509
$11r - 1st for $3335
$11 saturday duel - 2nd for $2500
$2r - 2nd for $2126
$4 micromillions 4max shootout - 3rd for $2016
Interesting deep runs:
63rd in $215 6max SCOOP
124th in $215 6max WCOOP
225th in $215 sunday warm up
10th in $11 hot
23rd in $55 hotter
27th in $16.5 hotter
147th, 70th, 60th in $11 sunday storm
(should be €1k more on ps.fr and bit more on PS and FTP, but it's about right)
I decided to try similar challenge as Masuro did. Instead of $150 I will start with $350 on $3.5 and instead of SNE I will try to achieve SN, even then I think it will be pretty tough considering the time I have to spend learning and I'm still planning on playing lots of MTTs on FTP and PS.fr. Thx for reading, gl everyone!
