I better get my head str8 tomorrow


Ranked 61st now, I expect to break into the top 50 next week :)
This is from this week's ranking update article from p5:
"Intervention has been mentioned often in this update recently, and he continues his climb, moving up 15 spots this week to number 61. His run of final tables continued, including 5 more this past week, the best of which were two final tables in the PokerStars $100 rebuys."

Will be playing a bunch of tournies tonight...will be doing a long post on mnth end thoughts and goals for the next 6 weeks.
Its almost time....

Kinda frustrated

Tilted few tournies here and there....made a final table but not even worth mentioning the details.
Good line up for the night, poker cyborg mode on at 8pm :)

No Deal

I was offered a backing deal and after much negotiation the final terms of the deal were- Complete backing for both live and online poker (this includes all wsop events adding up to almost 40k+) at 40-60 with upgrade after a month to 50-50 with make up throughout, with me having the option to quit if I am in green after 8 months or buying out my make up at that point. 8 months is a long commitment, I am not good with commitments, hvnt had one in a long time, this had me nervous and scared. The other thing was I wud be playing for 50% of my online action for the next 8mnths, I am kind of person who doesn't even look at 2nd price in most tourneys I play....being backed, that Cherry on top wud be much smaller, that really kills my motivation. Thirdly I won the 150 FO at FT last night (well chopped it) for 14.6k, this gets me borderline comfortable for wsop, in a sense I can afford it. So in the end after much deliberation and discussion I rejected the deal....50% was far too much for such a big winner online like me to part with. I do appreciate the 2 phenoms who offered me this deal and will be open to future of the reason why I wanted to take the deal was, that these 2 players are truly good people and legends in online poker and there was much I could learn from then....hopefully I hv made the right decsion.

Like I said earlier I took down the 150 at FT but overall I did good in other tournies I played as well. Cashed in 100r (made a donk resteal), 150 FO at PS (missed a royal str8 flush draw) and as u guys must hv seen lost a sick pot in the 1k. But for the 1k I had 500$ Lastlonger with 7 other people(all of them online phenoms), which suprisingly despite coming 75th in the relatively small field I won, so that was another 3500$ there.
All in all a good after a quite a while...

Big offer...

Yesterday was horrible, for a change I played a very patient game for the most part in the big majors. It was just a combination of bad timings and coolers that got me knocked out in most tournies. I was playing my A+ game in the 100r in the afternoon and 2nd chance and million...but I just kept getting coolered. It was expensive as most Sundays are-6k. There is one Saunday left before I head to Vegas for the wsop and I can just pray that I dont hv another one of those Saundays again, come to think of it I am actually stuck around 20k in sunday buyins this mnth (yikes!!).
There is some good news, I hv been offered a life changing deal, I am pondering whethere to take it or not...its a 1 yr deal and its really really tough. Far too close for me to decide. Ahhh, will hv to soon though.
There are some non poker things bugging me as well....hopefully they are all setlled.

SOmething I want to talk about..

Here I am sitting playing 6 of the biggest tournaments on today and realise that I am not thinking about the game (its all automatic for most part...I am a well trainded machine) but instead I am thinking about something else....crap the 7th table opened, will continue later..


I am up early to get into a good frame of mind and focus for the long day ahead. I avoided alcohol last night since for the last 2 Sundays I have been suffering from slight hangovers which have affected my play a bit. Today, however I am in prime shape (beside for the pain in my lower back....must go to a orthopedic this week) and feel good about my prospects today.
The line up is:
PS-215,109,109r,215,215,109r and 200r ~this should be in the neighbourhood of 4k at I might decide to play the wsop satellite (not sure about that one yet)
FT-216, 216 and maybe 163 (depends on how many tables I have open)
and of course mansion, bodog and absolute poker tourneys.

one of these days...

Had few good opportunites today, but no luck asual. Was deep in the FT 300$ 6 handed but got sick 2 outered to end up 34th, if I won tht pot I wud be 2nd in chips :( . Then I got ul in the PS 100 FO and the FT 100r (finally a good rebuy on tht site on a weekly basis) and to end the day I came 6th in FT 100$ 50k gtd. I completely dominated this tourny adn was playing vgood, but on the FT I lost AQ vs AT and then 66 vs AJ...ugh!
Big day tomorrow, I hv some plans about how and wat I am going to play...but too lazy to write them, brrrrrrrrrr

sick tourny day again...

frsh and refreshed after 2 days of no poker....sick numer of tournies today. Will list all the results later on...

New York

Yesterday afternoon I got a call from my cousin sisiter and on her insisting I decided to goto NY last night itself. My cousin brother is on vacation in the US (he has been travelling all over the US with his family for the last mnth) and is making this final stop in NJ (where my cousin sister and his own sister lives). The plan was to meet him and his wife in NY and then head to NJ later in the night.
I took the evening amtrak (veyr comfortable=very expensive) and reached NY around 8. It was hot, humid and noisy, just the way I like it and for a moment it felt to me like I was in Calcutta. I walked around for 20 mins and was really amazed at the skyscrapers (I know how I I met up with my cousin brother in Ethiopian reseruant somehwere close to time square. They were four of us, and the general talk was as expected centred around what am I going to do after graduation. My brother is well travelled and has a succesfful business, his suggestion was that I finish my MBA before coming back to India. To make things worse, his other cousin who works in NY was the 4th person in the group, she is an Harvard MBA and is working for top investment fund. She was however every intrigued with poker (she had a partypoker acct back in the day with sn littleg, though she played only play money tables) and the fact that I was taking time off from school to go and play the brother and sister in law and had a look of wtf r u talking Dinner was so so...but after tht we went to Time Square and tht was truly wonderful, I actually saw a number of rickshaws WOW didnt know they had those in the US. We walked around tht area for a while before heading to my cousin's cousin (ugh, forgot her name) manhattan penthouse on the 30th floor with a sick KILLER VIEW of the city. There we had some coffee before going to train station and taking the train back to NJ.
Today been mostly boring, not much going on besides me wrestling with my nephews (there are 4 of them), we went to see Pirates of carribean in the morning and after tht I hv just been chillin. There are plans to go out later tonight, but not sure if thts gonna happen...I shud be back for the weekends tomorrow I need to play poker!

Matter of time

6th in 100r
13th in 50r
5th in FT 150

Very small profit today but still decent, matter of time before I win big.

and O I am ranked 76th now

This is from this week's tournament updates from p5:

"Intervention also had a huge jump of twenty-two spots this week, moving all the way up from number 98 to number 76. He's barely slowed down since his recent $57k win on Full Tilt, and last week he continued his good run with 1st and 4th place finishes in the $50 rebuys on Stars, as well as a 3rd place in the $100 rebuy. MrSmokey1 was the last previously ranked player to move up at least ten spots, and he pulled it off largely by winning the Sunday $200 rebuy for $57k."


No luck yesterday, was kinda tired and uninterested and yet I played. I was doing decent in 50r but lost numerous showdowns (was CL with 50 left and still got booted 40th)
Today I am playing 100r, 50r, 100r and 300 at stars and the 2 150's at FT.
I am well rested today (had 8hrs of sleep in a long I hate college) and hv no errands to run, so I shud be able to focus a bit better today. I am still looking for a few more hits....I really want to make tht 40k :)

No poker tomororw and day after....tomorrow I hv a quiz and then group meeting (waste of time...but wat to do) and early friday morning I am going to New York to spend a day with my cousin siter from Jersey and my cousin brother who is visiting with his family from India. I hv never been to NY so I am kinda excited, besides I do feel I need a break and it always good to meet family. Althoguh I know I am going to be targeted with same old questions as always-when r u graduating? what r u going to o after tht ? Why arent u looking for a job? what is this poker? and then the looks of dissaproval in them....but u know wat, I love them for this. The only reason my whole family is taking my case is because they love me and I love them for doing tht, but till my parents are OK with me playing I aint gonna stop.

I believe the p5 rankings will be updated today, I hv increased my plb from 3775 to 4300 which is really a good week. I also hope tht people hv moved me up in the pro poll, a lot of people hv taken notice of my recent success, althought I hv been doing good for yrs but this has been by far the most impressive run for me in MTT's. This is actually the first time since dise shut down I hv had the money to play everything I want...hving low BR and being the sensible and responsible person I am :) I hadnt played many tournies till March...actually I was looking to get backed in Feb and spoke to one of the legends and biggest backer in online poker today, but I didnt get a call back from him and thts when my rush began. The weekend I spoke to him I took 2nd in the PS 2nd chance tourny for 26k and hv not looked back since then. So I guess people with unreturned phone calls and unaswered pms do just fine :)

In my last post was the schdeule and now some thoughts on it:
Well I want to play all NL events or atleast as many as I can.
From the schdeule its 15 events of which 13 prelims add upto 31k, then there is the 1k rebuy (weeeeeeee....well :( if I go broke rebuying) and the 10k main event. Original plan was to take 30k to wsop but looking at the schdule now I think I better take close to 40k. If i get one big win I will take 60k to be comfortable (u live once and who knows if I will get to do this ever again)
Besides these events there is the bellagio cup, which I may or may not play...depends on a lot of things. Then there are the living expenses (rent, food, wanna be balla lifestyle expenses) these add up to 8-10kfor the mnth (very expensive once u leave home...I am assuming 100$ on food and stuff everyday so for 45 days its gonna be 5k plus rent)
If I make 25k by the time I leave I shud be comfrtoable....anything more will be a bonus, obv this will be a big chunk of my BR but by no means all of it (far from it infact)

dissapointing sunday

well made some deep cashes and had good shots at some good scores and was running pretty good too...but I made some questionable calls for the 2nd day in a row to screw myself.
FT:1k and 150

good score and deep in 100R FTOP

won the 50r for 13.6k, it was again a very tought final table with belowabove to my left and other good players as colson10 there. Was satisfying, but I missed out on the 75k 1st prize in the FTOP event....ended 31st there after being CL for most part. One bad read really costed me the tourny...ah well hopefully none of tht if deep in anything today.
Line up:
PS 200,100,100r,200,200,100r and 200r
FT 500 ME and 200
UB 200
enuf chances plus I hv 33% of my frnd in some tournies so hopefully one of us hits something

Saturday, May 19, 2007

Sick tourny day...

Playing a lot of tournies today and boy am I excited:
PS-300,100, 100R, 50R, 100R and 150
FT-300,100 R (this is gonna be so good, hopefully I am not at a table with nits) and 100

Lot of good value tournies today and I do feel some exciement of the numerous opportunities I hv today and tomorrow of getting a big score.

I hv also been trying to boost my plb score to climb up the goal is to reach 5k before I leave for vegas, I am around 4k now so I need to increase by 25%, one big hit and I am there though.

Yesterday was frustrating...had a nice stack but got fucked in the end for 13th in 100R (qq vs A9 and before tht a sick river)...ugh, ended the day a bit down but mainly because of the horrid plays made by me in the afternoon, definitely more focussed and more rested today....gonna be a long day

Friday, May 18, 2007

Good Day..

Played some gr8 poker whole of yesterday....14th in FT 150 in the afternoon (lost monster CL pot with KK vs AA at tht point to become super shortstack and battle for a while before pushing 88 with less than 3 bbs and running into JJ), took 4th in stars 55r (lost 99 vs A5...I raised button and guy tried restealing, obv flop 5 5 2 for monster pot) atleast this time I got 4k for my 4th place finish and finally came 3rd in 100R for 9,660 (Just card dead towards the end...but I ran real goooooot for most part in this one)
The new rankings update article(on had this to say about me:
"The last two newcomers in this week's rankings are intervention and DSnyder766. Dsynder has been bouncing around this part of the rankings for a while, but this is intervention's first time in the top 100. He looks to move up quickly, as his recent wins include the Stars $100 rebuy (twice this month already!) and the Full Tilt $1k. He already has six 5-figure scores in 2007, including four in April and May."
Must keep stacking up those wins for $$ for wsop and ofcourse to stay in the rankings..

98th Ranked best online tournament player in the world.
Gonna take all my frnds out for dinner as soon as I win a tourny (kinda a low on cash)

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

plans for mnth..

Mixed results so far this mnth....some tournies I hv played good and done well, but for the majority I hv been donking and wasting a lot of money in the big rebuys and bigger buy ins. I am up around 12k this mnth (I had two wins of 16k each) and the plan is to end the mnth with 45-50k profit. Meaning I hv to make around 38k more this mnth. I feel my tourny game is coming around pretty well and its matter of time before I win another big tourny, another win wud get me str8 for reaching my goal. Dont think I will be playing today, but tomorrow is a good line up again.
Another thing I am excited about is getting ranked at and, I hv been trying for a longtime to get ranked at and feel tht I will be able to accomplish this by mnth end. I hv 3600 tlb points and need around 4-4.5k to seal my position on the ranking leaderboards.

Monday, May 14, 2007

my fault

I suck a lot somedays....200k for 1st and I do a classic donk

dissapointng sunday

3rd in bodog 100k, which broke me even for the day, but it was dissapointing overall. I played bad in the big rebuys which costed me, this is one of my big leaks, which I shud look to plug soon. I played pretty well in the FT big one, but obv no luck there....lost all 40-60 and 50-50 and finally got eliminated in 137th QQ vs AK for mny chips...2nd time in 3 days I hv been deep in big field tourny at FT. With the Main event(500 buy in....gonna be a sick field) of FTOP on Sunday I am considering not going to borgata for the 1k and focussing online...I hv made top 5% in fields of 2300 and 2900 twice in 3 days in the FTOP events...I feel its matter of time before I go all way, besides it wud suck if I got eliminated early in the 1k and am stuck in AC missing all the action online....guess I will wait till Vegas before I go nuts playing live.
Tonight is my favorite tourny...1k FTOP event 4, shud be around 75k for 1st....boy I am pumped for this one...barring any bad beats I shud do well in this one :)

Sunday, May 13, 2007

6 pm

Busted out of 215, 100R (1.5k), 109,216,215

Saturday, May 12, 2007

Friday, May 11, 2007

Currently deep in the FTOP event #1, 55th with 177 remaining. Its been a dissapoiting night so far (bubbled 100r FT and donked 3k in rebuying today)....but somehow I am getting a good feeling about the FT tourny.....lets see, wish me luck!!

no poker this weekend

Yesterday I made a real short trip to AC for the weekly fri tourny at borgata.
2nd orbit I got 79c and saw a raised flop 3 ways, flop came Kc 4c 3c, I check raised and eventually got it all in on the flop.....guy turned over 2 red KK, turn was 3 and I was done.
Didnt play much yesterday, went out heavy drinking with my frnds....still feeling the effects of tht today...ugh (I hate hangovers)
I am off to New Jersey for the weekend, I am pretty sure I wont be able to come back before Sunday late night, so there goes all the sunday tournies for mee (weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee)
Borgata has a 1k tourny coming on 20th of May, which I will be 100% playing....meaning I will be playing the big sunday tournaments just twice this week, kinda sucks since I am really trying to get ranked and to do tht I need to hit one of the big ones...ah well, guess hv to make the most of the 2 opportunities I get this mnth.

Trying to play better

Feels like I hv lost my magic touch, going to play tournies today and tomorrow and try and get some rhythm. Going to AC this friday for sure, since I need to go and pick up some cash from a frnd there. I will do end of mtnh analysis and plans for the summer once we decide on our house (we r still close to getting it, but small onbstacles keep popping up)
