July 7th, I wrote about the satellite no limit hold em tournaments the Eastern Poker Tour is hosting for its players who have reached a certain level in tournament wins and in tournament points. I reported that I had qualified for both tournaments and noted that I need to keep an eye on the player rankings for the points-qualifying no limit hold em tournament.
July 7th, there were 12 players between me and the cut off for the “points” satellite. During the month of July, that number declined to 5 players. As of today, there are 8 players between me and the cut off for the “points” satellite.
During July, I played only twice – BUT – I placed second in one of those no limit hold em tournaments and earned 116 extra points, so, my qualifying rank for “points” satellite was shored up a bit.
No Limit Hold Em Satellites Training
I see August 1 – 25 as my training period for the end of the month satellites. My plan is to crank the volume of tournaments that I play. I am accustomed to playing twice per week. During August, I will play a minimum of 4 times per week, and, more if I can find the opportunities.
August Recap to Date
So far I have played 5 of the nightly no limit hold em tournaments. I’ve earned ZERO extra points to help secure my eligibility as a player representing the Central Mass region. I’ve earned 72 points in the Framingham Region, but, representing Framingham is not my goal. My goal is to practice as frequently as possible, and practicing with players who are unfamiliar to me is best for training.
