My first steps into online poker


Learning the hard way

By: bibliofagos @ 16:17 (EST) / 374 / Comment ( 0 )
Spent most of the day watching videos here at PSO, and thought I learned a lot. But sometimes the best lessons are to be learned when you make a big mistake.

I started another 45 man $1 sng and held my own till there were 16 man left, with me at pos 8. Made a couple of minor bad judgement calls (not folding soon enough) to get there but that never cost me a whole lot. And then I totally misread an opponent, and went out on my ass. I think that one hand taught me at least as much as the the hours of video I watched today.

Gonna try my hand at one more 45 man $1 sng today, and then I'll turn in for the night, after a (probably) not very profitable, but very educational day.
