Iíve been on grind mode as of late. Moving over to Nitrogen Sports has been a blessing in disguise. Iíve been showing consistent profit in their bigger regular tournaments. Moving up the stakes to the 25 mbtc level was hard at first, mostly do to the mental aspect of the game, but Iíve learned to take breaks from the tables when Iím running bad and take a mandatory 15 minutes a day minimum, to study on my game away from the tables. Itís really been helping, Iíve ran 65 mbtc I won playing freerolls, up to 900 mbtc! Iíve mostly been playing there 750 mbtc guaranteed daily tournament, Iíve entered about 20 and have placed 3rd twice, 2nd twice, and 1st also twice! Even though these tournament have small fields, itís a great boost of confidence and bankroll and Iíll use this nice run as a stepping stone heading into the WSOP.

Barring a huge score early at the WSOP, this year Iíam only scheduled to play the Colossus event and the Lucky 7ís event both with a buy-in under $1000. I see these tournaments as being some of the most profitable, due to the large amount of recreational players entering. I play with these kind of players daily online and I can see some very profitable situations arising due to there the lack of live play, very long days and just the fact that these tournaments will be the highest buy-ins these players will ever pay in there whole career.

I plan on continuing my regular poker schedule but I will be tossing in a few live events a week before I head to Vegas. I will definitely be studying hard in preparation these last few precious weeks. I have trust in my game plan, my experience at the LAPC has really helped get me ready for the long haul these higher buy-in tournaments could be. I plan to be well rested and have no stress on my arrival to Vegas so I just pre-registered for the Colossus flight #D May 30, 2015. So if you see me in the halls at the Rio, come up say hi and buy me a beer!
