There is no such thing as a doomswitch.

/end of story.  (I hope this ride never ends.)  One thing to note, I continue to play a 50bb stack.  I honestly think that regs don't give me credit and I'm getting paid off lightly right now.  I'm sure that will change soon enough.  In the meantime, I'm enjoying this:

Upswinging and a Question

It's funny how spending an hour really concentrating on a solid video can result in a 10 buy-in upswing.  Was it the video or the practice of concentrating?

Hmmmmm....may have to investigate this one further.

Million Dollar Freeroll Cash

One benefit of all the hands I put in last quarter was that I was able to achieve Supernova.  A benefit of that is a quarterly $1 Million Freeroll put on by PokerStars.  Today's tourney got 6180 entrants.  I was able to finish 765th for a cash of $300.  Not bad for a freeroll.  Really not bad considering I haven't played a tourney forever. Really didn't make any mistakes until the knockout hand.  Early position minraised, shortstack with 19k stack shoves.  I'm in the BB with about 16bb, a 42k stack, and find myself with AJo.  I reshoved and got snapped off by KK from the original PFR and AQ by the minstacker.  No miracle straight for me and I go home $300 richer.

A good experience and looking back, I should have folded.  I had enough play left to get to the next cash breakpoint of top 702.  The pay jump was $100 if I would haven't gotten there and after that point the pay jumps decelerated immensley (top 600 got only $50 more).  Oh well, lesson learned.  Hopefully I can convince the wife to allow me the time to try a few more tourney's down the road.

And, oh yeah, my bankroll has reached it's highest point ever.  /brag doomswitch on??????
