As per my last post I did something that I should not have done that I didn"t know was not permitted!   I had to go to work so I let my girlfriend play my last few hands.  I was in the final four of the pokertars home league and I let her take over as I stayed as long as I could,  and knowing that I just taught her how to play that day, I figured she would bust me out quick and she did I ended fourth.  I did not know that you were not allowed to have someone take over for you until I posted it and was told that you are not allowed to do that!  So I resigned from the pokerstars home leaugue I thought that it was best as even though I know now it was wrong I feel that when I play anyone that read my blog that day would wonder if it was me playing or her and I am just getting the confidence that I need to play in other tourny"s so I felt that me leaving the home league was the best thing I coild do as I don" want to feel any distractions.  So far so good I played in 100k Priveledge freerole yesterday and ended up in 88th out of  22 thousand 2.47 to my gain and 4 hours later with a touch of a headache on the side!!!  I love the school as without thier teachings I never would have accomplished that feat I only played 22 percent  of my hands  My girlfriend was nice enough to let me know that she never wants to even look at me play another hand in poker again as she can"t understand the fun in playing hours for a couple of dollars but she does not have the experience that I as I have become what I would like to call a premier player I play only hands that i think have 35 persent plus chance of winning and position is everything.  I just want to tske the time to thank all pokerstars teachers and players for thier help in teachings and i am sure that our paths will all meet in the future
