My journey from being a losing 1/2c player

2nd 90 Man sitngo

By: Dany Boy NZ @ 06:12 (EST) / 257 / Comment ( 0 )
In this latest sitngo i made the money the hard way, several times i put mself down to 5 or 6 blinds with rediculouse calls and bluffs, i kept getting back up to a nice 20 and then repeating the cycle haha.
Eventually i started playing some good poker and getting some good cards and with 15 people remaining i was on over 30k which was like 75 blinds at the time and just under 1/4 of the chips in play.
But in the end i came 8th after losing about 3 hands where i got my opponents allin where they had to either have a big ace which each time i suspected i had bigger or they had to have a pocket pair, every time they had a pocket pair and everytime it held up :( , looking back at it i regret getting such large chunks of my chips in preflop when i could easily be a coin toss, at the time i had enough chips to grind into 4th and i think i certainly was good enough againts that field of players to outplay them postflop so i feel i let my self and my staker down with this 8th place finis, owell i gess thesers always the next one.
