Back Online!

Ah! It’s nice to be back!
I played a few tournaments over the weekend, making some decent progress.
It was almost nice to see my reraise with Aces called by QJ and losing, my KK all in called by 86 and losing and then seeing someone who had won a CPC seat the day before, call for all his chips my reraise of someone elses reraise with just top pair. KJ on a J high board. Obviously the miracle couple of cards followed enabling him to win.
I felt right at home!

I qualified for the weekly CPC final at my first attempt and then finished 8th in the final winning $600. I moved nicely up the field, before running into AA and badly trying to bluff my way out of trouble. I did recover though and was sitting pretty in 4th place with just 8 left. I reraised all in with KK, only for the chip leader to do the same after me with AK. He hits his ace and its good night.

One thing I will say about the payout, which ultimately did benefit me last night, is that it needs changing. 2nd to 12th got $600, why not take the money and create a CPC Lite seat or two, this way cryptologic increase the number of people at the event and there are more prizes worth winning.

The CPC is my main aim for the rest of the year now, aside from building a bankroll. I am also looking at whether I can find the time to play the UKPT event at Luton.

Unlucky on the CPC, I was on the same table as you on it last night in the first two levels, I thought I recognised your name, must have read your blog some time

I went out with KK against Aces allin pre level 2 which is fair enough but seeing as how the blinds were tiny and we had large stacks I have been thinking today I maybe should have folded to his allin push, not really used to the deep stacked long level tourneys though to be honest, need alot more practice.

Anyway good luck in your attempt to get to the CPC, I will be trying again in the next few weeks.

Hiya m8 I agree with your idea on the 2nd-12th place paying out CPC Lite packages instead, that makes far more sense. I might be tempted to qualify for a seat in the final then.
