Canada Cup, Januar-eh Nine, and Bonus Brags
Woke up early (10am) yesterday morning and got to a yoga class as quickly as I could. I had been during the week but other than that, very neglectful. Class ended at 1140, giving me just enough time to get home, showered and ready to start my tournaments. I have really tried to focus more on cash games, but the weekend tournaments are such good value and hard to stay away from. I Quickly registered in the Women's Sunday, the Sunday Million, the Daily Bigs and some PCA/Canada Cup satellites. Things did not go well. It felt like I had a bounty on my head in each (of course in the Women's I did...), which is a good thing, but I was falling prey to two and three outers galore.
The Canada Cup opened up....and I tried to leave everything else behind me. As always, easier said than done, but a double up KK vs QQ put me in a better mood. I will have to review my hand histories, but after that I didn't have many show downs that stick out in my memory. Just tried to gather small amounts of chips whenever other players were leaving them lying around. I especially got to make my move at the cash bubble, chipping up from 28k to almost 60k without a showdown, it was a great hour or so. Once in the money, there was no question....final table was where I needed to be.
The incentives offered by PokerStars are awesome. Hotel, flight, spending money in the Bahamas, not to mention....whoever ships this tournament gets to freeroll the 25k high roller tournament. I get really excited just thinking about potential! I slept only for an hour or so last night, will have to get over that ASAP.
So, now I have the "Januar-eh Nine" in my sights, and have some fun preparation work to do because I have every intention of showing this field how an Edmonton girl plays poker. I will dust off a spot on my mantle for the trophy. Stay tuned....I will show you how I train!
