3,5k report boo

As i was up late 2nite i decided to have a go at the 3,5k speed, these tourns are a crapshoot fest which u either bust out in the first 4 levels or build a massive stack and go on. First 2 levels crds are freezing i make a move with 89o in the co, bust, rebuy, i get to see half an orbit blinds at 300/6000 utg limps MP goes all in for just over 2k, covers my 2k, two man showdown, ive jj v a10o, no ace i double up and picking up the blinds plus limp. next hand im dealt jk MP i push, pick up blinds. blinds are still at 300/600 , cards have certainly improved and im at 6,3k.. im dealt AK, this is a hand i do not like to play but always seem to play it anyway because yes its a strong enough hand and in speed u cream urself at these cards with the blinds moving so quick u are happy with this kind of hand, i raise to 4k showing strength in my hand and not to fcuk with unless u got something better :), sb re raised me another 2k and he is all in leaving me with 240, the pot is about 13k, yes he spikes a queen leaving me with a hope of a king or another d for flush, no joy and im fcuked, moved to another table and my tiny stack is in with 44 ran into aces. A,k is a big time loser for me in showdowns, my HH justifies this bolloc :)

Sure when in rome.

I discovered quite a few of the regular online poker players have found the BLOG, i have read a few a blogs today and decided to give it a shot, hopefully i will have good reports in the near future. The main reason really why i created myblog is to get myself more organised in the poker world, you will normally find me on the tribeca network under a-k-47 , when im sick of tribeca and want a change ull find me under the alias imabigdeal on the prima network :). At the moment im playing mostly MTT's, my aim for 2006 is not just to regularly finish FT in the MTT's but to win a feeder ticket to the I.O and WSOP, yes ive got a mountain to climb but someones got to do it :),
