I've decided that today I'll play one points tournament and a few SNGs on PKR. The reason I'm playing points tournaments is because I'm trying to acquire 25,000 PKR Points to get a baseball cap (my Yankees one is getting old and I've misplaced my Napster one).
The other reason for playing these tournaments is to prevent my tournament play (nearly identical strategy to SNGs) from getting rusty.
I finished 65/169 in the points tournament. Had trips on the flop and ended up pot-commited on the turn. The river completed possible straight and flush draws but I had no choice other than to push. Lost to a flush, oh well.
In hindsight, I should have let the hand go after the flop. Against two players I was unlikely to win the hand. Even if trips were the best hand, my mediocre kicker would probably have cost me.
In my first SNG I finished 8th. Lost QQ v KK so not much I could do there. All my chips were in pre-flop. In my next SNG of the evening I finished 2nd. I was going to play another SNG tonight but I know that I won't enjoy it because I'm tired. I know if I go to bed now I'll remain awake for hours, but if I start playing poker I may start to think "this is taking too long".
