I've moved up in SNG buy-ins, and nothing really changes with respect to what I'm being eliminated with. I swear I'm ahead 75% of the time when the money goes in. The game is a bit more difficult at $50 buy-ins. There are more raises, less callers, and longer overall tournaments, emphasizing short stack play with half the field left. I'm still dabbling in MTT's also for a change of pace and to test my patience.
Last night I played a 211-entry $35 Bounty MTT and ended up 40th. I'm whining a bit, but when I was 12th I played a hand as perfectly as I could and ended up being rivered and eliminated instead of jumping to 2nd place. It still stings a little bit because I was verbally stating every aspect of the hand as it progressed, knowing exactly how it was going to play out. I was sure that this was going to be my night as I dodged the minefield of bounty hunters and bad play. Alas, it was not to be. AGAIN!!
I'm trying to defend my NCAA BB Suicide Pool Title this year, wish me luck.
