Online Sunday: Playing from Ventura

I'm back to online tourneys after 2 weeks of playing zero of them, nada, for some weird reason, I don't play much online when I'm traveling and playing WPT tourneys. I'm planning to play 5 or 6 tourneys today. Hopefully I'll have better luck than 2 weeks ago. I'm playing from my hotel room in Ventura, CA

1:30 (PST) I started playing the Stars $530 and the Party $378; this is my first tourney with Party's new structure. Looks like we have enough chips to play.

2:00 (PST) Paradise $200 starts. Party, down 40 4800 from the original 5000 chips; Stars up to 3200 from the original 2500. Here I think I should have won more in a pot with AA; but I played them like I was in the WPT. That's the problem with the mix.

2:10 (PST) Stars, back to 2600, lost an AI with 42c in a 542 flop vs AA, he limped before the flop. Party, up to 9600, we went AI in a J82 flop; I had QQ, he had KK and I sucked out with a Q in the river.

2:45 (PST) Out from Stars, I went AI with Ts8s in a Js9d2s flop, versus KK. I was a favorite, but none of my odds came. Down to 6k in Party after being up to 15k, I lost AIs with QQ-AA and 33-44. The 33 one was probably a mistake.

Out from Paradise and Party, I made the money in Party, 214th out of 2724.
