Tourney Problem Solved For Now

Last night I played in 5 $20+2 sit-n-gos on Party Poker. My results were a 1st, 2nd, two 3rds, and a DNP. The problem was as expected. I was getting too loose and trying to make moves. I played solid tight poker the first three or 4 levels. This usually leaves me with 700-900 when the blinds get to 50-100. There are usually 5 or 6 players left with at least 2 or 3 stacks shorter than mine. That's when I loosen up and go to all in mode. Most of the time I get folds and take blinds. Usually if I get called, I am getting my money in with the best of it, because the short stacks are in desperation mode. Of course you have to get lucky at least once if you are going to win one of these things.

I am still constantly amazed when I see someone blow off all their chips on a stone cold bluff. It's fine to fire a barrel before the flop and one after the flop. I think it borders on stupidity to keep the bluff going on the turn and river with such a shallow stack.

World Series of Poker Update

After further review of the schedule it looks like almost all of the No Limit Holdem tournaments start on Fridays in June. I posted in 2+2 to find out when I should get to the casino if I want to win my way in playing in a satellite. Hopefully it's just sometime Thursday morning. I wonder how bad the room situation is going to be that month?
