What have I learned today?
Play tight. If I can make it into the last 5/4, I know I can make it into the money. Don't get attached to good starting hands, that's mostly where I'm going out/losing large amounts of chips. Play tight. Play the table. One of the SnGs I won every was playing super super tight, by playing slighly looser and by being more aggresive than normal I was able to steal a lots of blinds I wouldn't have tried to normally.
Don't play when tired. The last one on the list, that was a mistake. I was too tired to play and I knew it. Started out ok then made a really bad call and went from 1st place to 9th which tilted me. Rebuilt my stack only to make another really bad call to go out.

This is what I played:
Depositers' Freeroll - 1080th $0.42
$1.50 9 man SnG - 6th $0.00 +1.16VPP
$1.50 9 man SnG - 6th $0.00 +1.16 VPP
$1.50 9 man SnG - 1st $5.81 +1.16 VPP +45 SnG points
$1.50 9 man SnG - 9th $0.00 +1.16 VPP
$1.50 9 man SnG - 6th $0.00 +1.16 VPP
$1.50 9 man SnG - 1st $5.81 +1.16 VPP +45 SnG points
$1.50 9 man SnG - 9th $0.00 +1.16 VPP
$1.50 9 man SnG - 6th $0.00 +1.16 VPP
$1.50 9 man SnG - 3rd $2.32 +1.16 VPP +18 SnG points
$1.50 9 man SnG - 6th $0.00 +1.16 VPP


Total: -$0.64, +11.6 VPP

All in all, not the most succesful day. Hopefully the lessons I learned will be worth the $0.64 it cost me. We'll see what tomorrow has to bring.
