Tcchap Studying the Game


4.8.11 Tourney Breakdown

By: Tcchap @ 23:29 (EDT) / 175 / Comment ( 0 )
Got totally outplayed tonight.  Kept pretty good notes on people but just ignore the rule that big bets are for big hands.  When the big bet comes out, nothing else in the hand matters.  Had a hard time adjusting to the new people when I got moved to a new table.  Totally mis-played a couple of hands also, including the back breaker below.
