I missed a lot of the FTOPS events this time around. I had a lot going on and didn't get to play as many as I would have liked to. Oh well. I did manage to play this weekend including the $2500 6max Event. I was up to 8k early from 6k starting stack then ran a bluff that was picked off on the river. My last ~3k got all in preflop AA vs KK to get back to starting stack.

Now that the FTOPS is over I have to gear up for the WCOOP which will be coming up shortly. I'm still looking for a 6 figure score online. I will get back on the grind shortly I just have a lot going on at the moment. But I am excited to get back on schedule with life and playing and back to work improving my poker game.
My buddy actually won the FTOPS Main Event for ~450k so congrats to him for that. He's put in a couple of sick months at the WSOP and online racking up some big scores so congrats to him.
Yesterday I put in a full schedule online and got deep in the 163r on FTP. I lost with 28 left when I raised to 10k at 2k/4k UTG with AKo with a 120k stack and the button shoved 85k with KJhh. He spiked a jack and I was about crippled and lost the tournament. I had a couple other shots in some tournaments but nothing big. I took the day off today and MIGHT play tomorrow but I'm not sure yet.
My Sunday's haven't been going so great and I'm trying to figure out why that is. Maybe I'm not playing my best, playing too many tables, not focusing, etc. I might cut down on some of the tables I play and just focus on a couple tournaments on Sunday and see how it goes. It's tough to do that since there are so many good tournaments to play but it might be more profitable to play on Sundays that way. I guess I might experiment with some things and see what works best. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. Other than all that news I don't really have much else to say. I'll keep everyone updated. Goodnight.
