Wow, a Tiring Morning, Progress Part I

Cats woke me up around 2:33 am (Jimmy, the Super Hoover, was hungry). So, decided on investigating PT3 vs. Holdem Manager, decided on HEM (even though there are some problems with importing tourney information). Don't know if will buy yet, but when I get into the cash games, will definitely prove useful.

So, what does one do? Well, lets try some more tourneys. Logged onto PokerStars at about 4:55 in morning. Noticed the F40 Sit n Gos, and the F40 freerolls were running. Would love to play, but Bankroll Management needs to be adhered with.

Starting with 5.44. Continuing with the Hutchinson Point System study.

1st tourney, finished 294th (really bad).

Went all in with KK, got called by AQ suited, A on flop, the rest is history. (2 prior guys at my table had won with the all in KK, what happened to mine, whine?)

During current Hold'em session you were dealt 4 hands and saw flop:
- 1 out of 1 times while in big blind (100%)
- 0 out of 0 times while in small blind (0%)
- 0 out of 3 times in other positions (0%)
- a total of 1 out of 4 (25%)
Pots won at showdown - 0 of 1 (0%)

The one time was the KK, heehee

Proceeded to a second tourney. Finished in 81st place, this is not going well. Folks calling with just about everything. While I had playable hands, the cards were not following my way. My stats show I need to slow WAY DOWN.

Believe I threw my stack away with AQ suited, went all in with check raise on flop, and King showing (didn't think he had it). He didn't have K, but had a pair of 77s, and more chips than I.

34 hands played and saw flop:
- 1 times out of 4 while in small blind (25%)
- 1 times out of 4 while in big blind (25%)
- 9 times out of 26 in other positions (35%)
- a total of 11 times out of 34 (32%)

Pots won at showdown - 5 out of 7 (71%)
Pots won without showdown - 1

Bankroll down to $5.24.

Third Tourney, starting to feel a little tilt going on (stress and aggravation ggrowing on the inside). Played WAY too many hands, as the stats show, finished in 122nd place. Methinks I'm starting to get that feeling from the Challenge Begins Post. Behold the stats of an On The Verge Tilt Player:

During current Hold'em session you were dealt 28 hands and saw flop:
- 2 out of 2 times while in big blind (100%)
- 2 out of 4 times while in small blind (50%)
- 9 out of 22 times in other positions (40%)
- a total of 13 out of 28 (46%)
Pots won at showdown - 1 of 5 (20%)
Pots won without showdown - 4

Time to take a break.

P.S. Another of those milestone hands hit, again at the .05/.10 nl tables.
