Tournament Play

After my setback on Tuesday night I decided to play in one more tournament on Friday afternoon to get ready for the Seniors event.

Every time I walk into the casino to play live I get that tug to play more tournaments. I have figured it out as the competition that I like and since I have always been a very competitive person in whatever I play that is the drive to do more. I really want to do well in the cash games because that is where the money is to grow the bankroll.

I am hoping to do well in Spokane on Tuesday in the tournament and then I would like to play some live cash if I get knocked out early. My first goal is to make the money in the tournament and then go from there. I will have my game face on and have my brain in the right frame of mind.

When I played in the tournament here at Jokers yesterday afternoon I did well. I got down to 12th place, my usual spot, and then I started to do the one thing I didn't want to do. I was looking for the right cards to push all in. I found a suited A5 and went all in hoping everyone would fold and everyone did except one person with K4. He flopped 4x4 and that was the tournament for me.

Why did I do that? I still had time and I had over T$10,000 in chips with the blinds at 400/800. For some reason I get that feeling I need to be more aggressive at this point and it fails me. I need to put up a big sign in front of me that says "Patience". Maybe have people start texting me and telling me to be "Patient".

C's sister is here and we are enjoying her visit. I will lay back and get some rest and hope for a good trip up and back on Tuesday.

Have a fun day......
