Played some more of the jackpot SNGs today. Was up to $100 profit at the $2 ones without any big wins, so decided to move up to the $5 games and proceeded to lose it all
The standard at the $5 is no better than the $2, I simply had the worst run of cards ever. At one point I went 19 games in a row without cashing and most of those I had reached HU and got it in as a big favourite.
I played 58 games at the $5 and all but four were a $10 prize, so even if my cards were holding it would be hard to break even. What was even more annoying was that the couple of times I did sit on a $30 table are when I had the worst coolers. QQ < JT was fair enough, at least I don't mind his call, but on the other one I shoved with A8s and got called by 58o. I knew straight away he was going to hit a 5 and sure enough he did
I do like these, just really frustrating to be up 50 buy-ins in 24hrs and then suddenly run so bad as soon as I move up. At least I wasn't playing too bad, I'll just go back to the $2 tables and do it all over again with a bit more luck this time...
