4 Aliens vs. Predators
For a while now I have believed that the perfect micro level tournament player is someone with a good understanding of the game, its mechanics and the numbers but someone who hasn't allowed millions of hands to twist their perception on the value of the play. I recently registered my dad on PokerStars so he could also play and learn the in's and out's of online poker. I started him off on 9 ...

15 A last big Push
I had a goal of making ten thousand dollars this summer. Right now I'm in the bottom of the ninth bases loaded 2 outs, down probably about 10 runs... Adding up my poker profit from the past few months of summer, I come to a grand total of $4,103.25. My classes for the fall semester will be starting on Monday Morning, giving me one last Sunday to make it all happen. I plan on playing a ...

10 Jackpot to your DREAMS
Hello P5s world. I am on a high of late on these $1-2.50 jackpots over at FT. I was put on to these at the start of the year after my Boy MP always talked about playing these, but I just saw them as luck and just no skill needed. Oh was I wrong *cover face* I started playing them at the end of March and by middle May, I hit my first serious or serious to me jackpot of $250. Which first would ...

1 Experimental MTT Strategy
So, I am realllllly new to P5's and it seems a really good place to be. Definitely one of the smallest fish in a big pond and certainly aware of my poker limitations in comparison to the vast majority of the guys on this website. I started playing poker about 5 years ago at university and got engrossed early on. I read and learned a lot from my failings and from others around me too. I then took ...

77 August Update
**View my full blog at: for additional information and annual profit** **Follow me on Twitter @Adamsapple19** So I've been putting in an obscene amount of volume. I've played 407 MTTs so far in August. Volume = Good. Downswing = Bad. Unfortunately I've been losing a ridiculous frequency of key situations late in tourneys resulting in finishing at the final two tables or making ...

2 Doing the Little Things Right - Bad Beats
You’ve experienced a bad beat before, we all have. Take pride in your bad beats, walk away with your head held high. A bad beat is an opportunity to become great, an opportunity to grow. Lets start from the beginning. What is a bad beat — to put it simple, a bad beat is when you put your chips in as a massive favorite and end up seeing the pot pushed in the other direction. The second ...

1 My own worst enemy
This is not an entry to be negative or talk about how good I play only to spew it away with bad bankroll management, but simply a reminder to myself that I can be my own worst enemy. I've run account balances up many times and proceeded to lose it playing on tilt, or running to blackjack after a few too many bad beats....However, like I said this is not about that. I'm simply creating this ...

2 Fortune favors the bold.... or is the mother of stupidity
Well, Decided to challenge myself. Gonna see if I can run $30 into $1,000 by playing whatever I feel like without paying particular attention to bankroll or any other things that make general sense. I will donk it if I have to :) If I get that far, I will post where I'm at 10 games from here. First game is: $30 NL Turbo 9-handed. Yup, 100% of my bankroll. GL GL BingoBoy76
