Why r there so many who limp? All I hear is Bet, Raise or Fold.

We begin another round of league stats, last 1 4 the current formatt & from what I have read about the new system that will begin in April I have 2 wonder just how well it will go. There seems 2 b much more payment involved if 1 wants 2 remain in the 'stats' as we have, now if a player wanted 2 play in the Qualifier League there was a $1.10 entry fee per tournament but there was a choice, u could stay away from paying entry fees an play the Open League tourneys instead. I have no problem with the 1 time deposit by all who want 2 remain part of the leagues but if we r required 2 pay more that the micro limits which is where many of us r, especially 4 the first few weeks 2 a few months or however long it takes 2 build up the 'courage'? Not sure that is the proper word 4 that situation, maybe it would b better 2 say until we have built up enough 'confidence' in our play 2 b willing 2 use a few more dollars in our play against others. Even though I play at some cash tables & will use more $ there I am almost positive I will take a pass on many of the League games where I am not comfortable with the amount asked as an entry fee & since I do not have $ issues on amounts used here there will b many who will have issues with it. My tourney play needs work, yes I know that all of us need 2 continue working on different aspects of our game & that it will b something that will always require more study, if we r interested in moving up the ladder or even just remaining good enough 2 continue being a + player at the lower levels. I am lucky enough 2 have met some players here who have, in my opinion, gone & done things above & beyond anything I expected 2 get from them. I had hoped 2 pick up a bit of knowledge on a multiple amount of game related issues & what they did had me wondering why I was such a lucky person. Not only did I get my questions answered, I also received huge amounts of extra data on each subject. There r some extremely amazing people in our world, which because of technology has become much smaller, & some of those amazing individuals r right here with us. I had said 2 1 of them if the day ever came where I happened 2 take down a huge tourney they should b ready 4 some publicity because when I am asked how I managed 2 get 2 this possible win their names will b the first that I will utter. It is their willingness 2 take hours of their time, in an effort 2 help someone they only know because we happen 2 b on the same game site, that amazes me. So if the day comes when they plan 2 put my name up with lights attached there better b room 4 other names, if not I will refuse 2 allow it, pick up my winnings & walk. I am not looking 4 fame & fortune, should it come, great, if not that is fine also. So by the title u r aware my tourney play needs a lot of improvement, I cannot seem 2 get a few good starts in a row, soon I plan 2 change that. As 4 the $ tables I have still taken a few bad hits but I have delivered many more than I received. I wish u all the very best of luck here & in real life, later, Len.


PS. if any of u can tell me why would I not received tickets 4 my Trickiness & Shooter stats when the former is higher than many who did get them & the latter where my stat is higher than #1
