A Little Recap

Let's do a little recap here:

Starting balance for March: $100
Current balance as of May 4: $2,250.00
Replenishment of bankroll: $0

So, to make matters simple, I'm working with $2,150.00 profit.
Not bad in the grand scheme of things. In review of these past two months, I've certainly been up and down. Certainly pleased with my current status and remain extremely focused on the main goal. That of course being this years World Series of Poker.

The ongoing plan at this point will be to focus more directly on Satellites for the WSOP. While always on the forefront of my mind, it has been a priority to build my bankroll first with the occasional satellite. Time to change gears a bit.

Last Night...
I didn't go overboard last night. Played two tournaments, cashed in one. Played the $10 MTT and was doing extremely well. Made a move late in the tournament and was simply beat. No bad beat, no bad play on my part. He had a better hand. No sense in over analyzing that particular play. Also found myself doing very well in the $20 180 max tournament. Placed 14 in this tournament with a small profit. Was getting low on chips and pushed with 55. A 10 called and caught an A on the flop and to add insult to injury, another A on the turn. Oh well.

Tonight's Plan...
Tonight will have a focus on Satellites obviously. I am however interested in taking part in the $160 MTT at 9pm. I haven't touched this tournament in quite some time. Probably close to a year since I've played this one. My bankroll hasn't been able to support such tournaments. However, this may be a good opportunity. Last year, when I was playing this tournament regularly, I was doing extremely well. The field was manageable, the players half way decent, etc. Having not participated in so long, I now wonder how that field has changed. I'll do some scouting before signing up.

Just one to share from last night:
