      seeing as i'm up so early, and so cold + tired to play cash, and only playing this one table, i'm gonna keep everyone posted on my progress in this.

      bad start, some steals fell through. @-180 starting stack.


      quality of play is OK. maybe 50% still fish though (WTF OPENLIMP LP?)

      -185, different TAGs more than happy to resteal vs me twice in one rotation? O.O

      had to fold my AQo to a strong resteal from the button, i had openraised to 3x from MP2.

      you playing, SoyCD?

      they say you have to play loose against TAG's, so raise every hand imo. If they re-raise, push any two. If there's a raise in front of you, push any two. If there's several raises, then only play low cards. They're bound to have Ax, so you have more chances to hit. Good luck.

      :D , ATs BU vs CO runs into KK, oh well... gg

      tough to lay down in that spot, with just 10BB remaining.

      low FE though, guess it was ship it and pray he was stealing wide :P

      Ya not much you can do with the blind increases breating down your back and such a short stack. Too bad :( I was hoping to railbird someone from the English community at the final table :o

      Ah yes ManniXXX is still in it. Gogogo ManniXXX :)

      (Manni just doubled up with AK vs 66 ==> Aggresive Bigstack raises 66 from MP => ManniXXX pushes all-in from BB)

      Now with slightly above average stack and 251 players remaining.

      Ohh I didn't know this was being railed xD

      Yeah that dude was hyper aggresive, he ended up knocking me out later on with QK, I pushed with 88 from MP2/3 with 10.5 BBs and he called. I finished 162nd or something like that.

      I had a look at the final table later on; looked mostly russian from the names of the final 3/4. gg everyone
