I tried my luck last night at the SCOOP Limit Stud High/Low Poker Tourney being held at PokerStars. It was quite exciting. During the first three hours of play I would be in the top 10 then I would be in the 100-199 spots. Then I would jump up into the top 25 and back to the middle of the two hundreds.
This was more like a yoyo tourney for me. The highs and the lows. I have had some success at Limit Stud High/Low in past tourneys, but tonight the cards were not running my way late in the tourney when the antes and blinds were increasing.
I started to play some marginal hands and I ended up with less than marginal results. All in all this was quite an exciting tourney. This time I was within 68 places of the bubble and being paid off for my excitement and exertion?
My last SCOOP tourney for this season will be tomorrow, Wednesday and I will try my hand at Razz. I will let you know how I do after. The SCOOP at PokerStars offers a variety of games at various buy-ins at various days and times.
