    For those who say I was playing terrible today...

    $40 PokerOwned Free Roll: 9th place.
    $45 PokerOwned Free Roll: 5th place.

    Back to back ITM today.

    Sure, I chased a couple hands when blinds were low, but It appears I played a pretty solid late game by the looks of my hand history.

    Unless those at the final table disagree?


    Btw - Thanks PokerOwned.. These tourneys are helping my grind.

    Ill be the first one to say when I make donk calls that were stupid. What sent me out was calling an all in on the final table:

    me: KK
    Other: 9s 10s

    Flop: 9 9 Q.

    Me: Bet 3k

    Other Shoves.

    I call.

    This was a donk call by me, but most of both of the tourneys I was reading better than I have in awhile. Was proud of myself for not calling in BB with KJ after 3bet and 4bet

    I know variance is going to get me after today and I will either flip my stack away or I will make a dumb call for my stack in another tourney, but I am proud that I managed to do better 2x today than I have in any of the FRs

    It makes sense that you are questioning the assumption. I feel that only long term results are an indicator of good play. I know for a fact on the tournaments that I have won I made a bunch of stupid plays. I just happened to make them at the right time.

    The 3 bad plays I made were:
    Chasing a flush with terrible odds = loss of half of stack
    Chasing a straight against opponents made hand, hitting trips to lose half (after building back up)
    Then KOed by a donk call on final table.

    In essence, my reads were at their optimal level in both tournaments, I knew the times I was completely beat, knew when I was marginally favored, and was able to swiftly adapt to each of my transfers based on whether the table was super tight or super aggressive. - Some hands I played were terrible, but in these tournaments, I played much better than I have in any tournament since I started playing poker ~2 years ago.

    I can understand why you are asking why I say my results were good play, but I can assure you, the field was not exactly full of donks.


    ~ The other hand: I know what variance is, I know that many people can argue I just had a string of good "luck" or good variance. However, Looking at my hand histories from previous tournaments in comparison to these, I played a much more solid game.

    I didn't take any devastating risks, as I have in the past, and didn't get tilted like I would have in many similar situations. Ill just say, that the biggest accomplishment I had here was the experience I gained and valuable information I learned by observing my opponents. Does my accomplishment make more sense now?
