hi all
              Quick update following on from earlier blog.Read all the information on S n G on poker school and have tightened up my starting hands alot playing about 15% where as before i played bout 30% of em. Also pay alot more attension to position at the table.The only thing im not sure on is wether to fold raise or call after the flop unless it is glaringly obvious but i suppose that will all come with time and experience.any how up date on play.Thursday night cashed in a $3.50 fifty 50 and also won bout $4 in a $0.10-$0.25 cash game.(don't no why i play cash game's don't really enjoy em just think i can win more money quicker than S n G's i suppose) so i assumed i must be getting the hang of the game.especially when last night i cashed in my next $3.50 fifty 50.But that all came crashing down when i busted out early in the next 2 i played. Mind you in the 2nd game i was short stacked and went all in with jacks and got called with 8's only to be busted out with an 8 on the river.I didnt feel to bad because i dont think that was bad play that was just a bad beat.I guess the bad play was when i allowed myself to get short stacked.I then played a cash game hit a big hand and went $5 up very quickly only to give $7 back over time.So i suppose the last couple of nights i just about broke even.I guess something must be working because my profit and loss column usually reads loss loss loss etc etc keep playing daniel i'm ready for about 20 years maybe...good luck at the tables everyone..........except the players at my table..............
