Satellites

A weekend where I actually played some poker!! Who would have guessed. These days I’m focusing on playing Sit ‘n Go’s on PokerStars as well as quite a few Spin and Go’s. As written, hyper is new to me, but I sure do like them.

I have an account on PartyPoker as well, but I’ve never deposited there, I only got one or two cash-to-play things. Mid week I got an email to opt in to a daily reward, unveil a card with a reward, a Caribbean Poker Party reward “game”. I’ve played every day since, revealing a new card each day at 13:00 CEST. Every day has revealed a $2.2 satellite entry, in which I’ve lost very early on. I think much of the reason for that is that I just haven’t taken them seriously! So today I revealed my, again, $2.2 satellite and got to work. One hour later, 25 of us got our entry to a $22 satellite. I planned on unregistering this to play at a later time, but the $2.2 finished just as the $22 started and my new table in the $22 opened automatically, Dang! Guess I have to play then.

After late registration, 84 players were in (some were already out) and that meant 15 entries to a semi-final worth $109, as well as $45 for 16th.
It took 1h 39m 15 minutes plain hand-for-hand, but I got my entry! This time I had time to unregister the satellite, because the prize in this one is a Day one qualifier seat! The ticket is good until 13-Aug ~09:30, so one day this coming week I’ll play a $109 satellite/tournament, which will be my biggest buyin to date.

Let’s hope I make it all the way to Day 1 of the Caribbean Poker Party ’17!

Poker and setup

Alrighty folks, how’s life treating you fine ladies and gents?
I’ll start this post with my week-so-far graph (poker):
So.. I’m a low-volume, micro, to low stakes “grinder”. My passion this week has been 36 Players, Super-KO SnG’s on Pokerstars.
These are suuuper aggressive and being hyper-turbo (10BB starting stack), the whole thing is over usually 12-15 minutes, start to finish. Until I found these, I’ve not really liked the whole hyper-turbo thing, but this week has shown me a new path. I actually like the fast pace action.

Another thing I’ve done is update my setup. I’ve bought a 4 monitor stand (currently 3 set up) and I’ve upgraded my mic-stand, for use when I start streaming again. I’ve bought the domain: http://www.geirandersen.tv and that is linked directly to http://www.twitch.tv/geirandersen.

Tomorrow, Pokerstars MicroMillions (MM’s) start with a $5.50, $300k guaranteed event. I was thinking of playing a number of events this year and the upgrades are for streaming purposes.

I don’t know, I’ll play the MM’s for sure, but I’m not sure about the streaming part. I’d be streaming right now if it weren’t for the fact that I have a rubbish upload speed and there’s no way to get better connectivity out here. Down speed is OK but up… Nope. If only I could get a 50/50 line…

Anyhoo.. Let me know by dropping me an email, a comment or head on over to geirandersen.tv and follow me. I’d really appreciate the follow!

Spin & Go’s


Here’s a video of 2 quick Spin & Go’s on PokerStars.

I have decided to start streaming poker & what’not on Twitch, as I enjoy watching others streams and want to stream myself. I have acquired all the equipment I need and some more, so I’m in fact ready to go. It’s a bit hard to pull the trigger for some reason, but I’ll get there. Continue reading “Spin & Go’s”
