Warning, thinly veiled brag! Lol...
If you fancy taking a peek, click here for the column, it looks pretty spanky to me (as does S&M.com...ugh terrible joke there, perhaps I could've just said it looked nice and left it at that?!)

After a day off on Saturday, then another awesome day on Sunday (day 6, you can probably see by comparing the graph below with Day 5's graph), I had the sickest day today. I played 29 45-man tournaments and did not cash in one. Not only that, I did not make a final table. Considering these things start off with only 6 tables, that's so bad. With my edge, you'd hope I'd hit at minimum of 6 in this sample. I didn't play any differently to how I had been doing up to now, I just didn't win any showdowns...literally. Whether the money went in ahead, even, or behind, I lost. I guess this was to make up for me running overly-good the last couple of days.
Perhaps I need to evaluate whether I should play these during the daytime, it might be better to put in some late night sessions when there is more, and possibly worse, traffic. I'm not sure that made a whole lot of difference, but it's something I'll keep an eye on. I decided to take the rest of the day off after this gross session. I didn't want to start tilting, and tbh it seemed the only way to stop losing money was to stop playing. I guess I need to become accustomed to sessions like this, as they come hand in hand with MTTs.
So here is my 45 man graph on PokerStars. I noticed I had a 44% ROI with a Shark icon yesterday....how things have changed! However, I Sharkscoped some of the consistent winners today, and 20% ROI seems to be the ceiling for these 45 mans, so perhaps this run just made things a little more realistic...

Sigh, I'm afraid an earlier exit than I was hoping for...
Early on in Day 2, at 1200/2400 (300), I flatted a fairly tight player's 6.5k raise with 99 in position. A guy shoved on the button for 28k. He'd been shoving a lot so it was a no-brainer that when original raiser folded and getting 2:1 on a call that I called. He had AK and spiked a K.
Winning this pot would have put me amongst the chip leaders, but as can happen in poker I was soon out when I shoved 66 and got looked up by AK. They spiked a four flush on the river and I was out.
A shame I don't flip better!

Have managed to make day 2 in the biggest donkfest that I can recall. Will be going back with 66,000 chips (average approx 50k).

Am getting a bit behind myself with my blog so thought I'd better at least mention this before I play my next tournament (which will be the Sky Poker Tour Grand Final at DTD on Saturday).

Apologies for the delay in mentoning my cash in the £1k DTD tournament which borrowed the WSOP main event structure. What a great structure tournament it is, definitely the favourite tournament I've ever played in because of this. It just allowed so much play. At no point could it ever become a shove-fest or a crapshoot. It really was a thing of beauty. A lot of players failed to adapt to the deepstack nature of the tournament, which I felt increased my edge against the field.
