Getting deeper in these just bust 21st where i check raised allin against chip leader.
Was holding Q 10 spades and called min raise in blinds.
Flop 8s 4s 2c i check and he c-bets min amount. I push and he calls with Ah 8d so im slight favourite on flop to get there 54% - 46%. I miss my flush and overcards.
Am happy how i played managed 12 KOs in game. And tonight the deck was hitting me for once. Hopefully next one i make the FT.

I did see Molly in the game who also cashed and got unlucky when she was allin with AK v A7 and the other player flopped the 7 crippling her stack.

Unlucky for you Slim, was similar when I played at the birthday bash.  I was against Sean who had a pair of jacks, I was holding two spades, including the ace.  Flop had two spades.  With Sean betting and me chasing the flush, I was hoping for another, with two cards to go.  Didn't hit either  Keep going with the grinding.  I am still waiting for my account to be activated after they said it would be in August!!!!!!!!!

Cheers Rhonda, try messaging a MOD im sure they will help get your account back up and running.

Did make a FT in the $3k PKO game last night, so im happy that i got there in less than a week. Next step is to finish in top 3 where the bigger money is.

I havent been playing my sngs that much so decided to get back and see if i can crack my bad run from my last 50. Well my next 50 games were even worse. So just over a 100 games and i have been getting coolered or sucked out on. It is prob my worse run i have had online in all the years i have played. I could post up the beats but that is just negative and we all get them, i have been talking to a fellow player who has advised me just to keep doing what i have been doing and it will turn around, its just frustrating when you get a monster hand on the bubble and the button pushes allin with 9-3 and cracks your hand.
Onwards and upwards, heres hoping i can get my graph going back up the hill instead of sliding down it lol.

Firstly a Merry Xmas to all and hope you all had a good one.
I havent played much the last few months as have been very busy with work so when i have got in from work and im tired i have found its best not to play.
But what i have done is studied my game and been going over hands where i have been put in situations where i have been in a tough spot. 
My luck in here is going through a cold patch where nothing seems to be going right, so i needed to look over my game and try and plug any leaks.
I have been playing more PKO games and have managed a few cashes but nothing major as of yet. We all need a lot of luck to go deep in these games and need a big stack to absorb the hits. My sng challenge has taken a back seat as i was going through a patch where i just couldnt win.
As im of work  for a few days i have decided to play a few sessions on here, and again i keep running into a brick wall getting my monsters cracked losing flips at cruicial times.
I hate talking negative, but after a while you begin to doubt your game.
So i decided to look into my old accounts to see if i had any funds to play with and try 1 of my old sites. Well the 1st site i looked into i had just enough to sit down with 1 buyin on a cash table or i could play some micro sngs.
 My BR managment had gone out of the window as this is money i had forgot about so i was going to take a shot, if i bust i was going to top up as  needed a change of scenery from here just to see if my play has fallen of the wagon.
I decided to watch some cash tables on the 5 card O8 micros and staight away new this is where i needed to play and try and build up a bit of a roll. Within the 1st orbit i had managed to double up. I sat and played for about an hour avoiding any raising wars pre flop and only playing strong hands in pos.
I was lucky to flop some monsters and let them bet into me when i was scooping and they were getting Quartered at best. It still amazes me how many call down with just the low draw.
I looked into the lobby and saw there were 2 NLO8 games running which were both rebuys for the 1st 2 hours, 1 was a $5 and the other $27, so was going to fire 2 bullets if needed for both.
The fields are bigger than in here and i had no notes on anyone but soon worked out who were playing any 4. In the $27 game i was lucky enough that it was folded to me and the small blind pushed allin with KK23 os and i had AAK2 ds in BB and my hand held to scoop the lot. That put me in a good spot all game and when the rebuy period was over i had a top 5 stack that i could use to put pressure on the low stacks.
I took a few hits getting to the final table and when we reached it i was the lowest stack, but i was happy enough as i had cashed and made the FT.
I managed to ladder up 2 spots when i was down to 6 BB then i hit a run of cards where everything hit and held for me. Whilst this was playing out i was getting deep in the $5 game and again i was just picking my spots and waiting for strong hands to play.
Again the play is super LAG like in here, so i was just letting them doing the betting for me and pushing allin on the river when i new i was scooping and they just had the low.
Anyhow its nice just to get back winning and making a FT i came 2nd in the $27 and 7th in the $5 game.
So if your going through a cold patch on a site load up another 1 and try it out, its good boost for the confidence when you pick up a few nice results.
Now i got a few bucks on the other site i will be playing both at once and see if my luck can change in here. Hopefully see a few of you on a FT.
Good luck all and keep plugging away.

nice one slim. yep sit and goes can be a bugger for not cashing through no fault of your own, my longest streak of not cashing was 22 i think. at least you have had some cashes in there to keep you a little bit sane . this is a prime example of how you need  to have good bankrol management. it will turn round and soon you'll be putting up a run of 10 staight wins

good luck in the new year 
a pair of melons beats anything
