I am counting yesterday as a success. Although I did not finish in 4 of the 6 games I played, the 2 i did get past the points put me on a plus for the day. Not enough to make a run at the leaders, but after the 3 day slide, its good to see a silver lining in the clouds. Being a novice, I am still trying new things to improve my game. Some worked great and I will definitely use it again. Others left me short stacked early and tough to recover. I did however turn a short stack of 290 into a 66th place finish in the final game. A little luck at just the right time goes a long way. Hitting your good cards and holding up in the blinds with other than preferred hands is the always a recipe for success. We all need that donk win suck out to survive. Not that you play bad cards, but on the reveil of an all in, you see that you are not the best hand. Then .. wait for it...wait for it ... there it is .. you know you just sucked out a win. It was sick . But for the first time in how many games it was sick in your favor. Now we have hope. A light at the end of the tunnel. A sigh of relief and we are ready for the next set of cards. We dont even care what the next cards are. We will fold in the blink of an eye and smile, if not out side at least inside, all the way through the next couple of hands. Then we feel the second wind of a run to the finish and are back to concentrating on the game and where our next winning hand will come from.
As Always.... Good Luck to the serious players!
