Instant Improvement!

Unfortunately, my computer crashed halfway through the live training last night. It's a shame, but there will be plenty more opportunities to learn from the pros.

After it crashed, I went back to PSO to study each training article written here for Multi-Table Tournaments. I focused mainly on the table position articles, and wow, it has already improved my game dramatically. I've played five freeroll tournaments in the last 24 hours, and have finished in the money in not one, not two, but three of them!

Firstly, there was a BankrollMob $25 freeroll here on Pokerstars. There were a little over 4,600 entrants, and I ended up finishing in 98th place, good enough for a $0.05 cash.

Secondly, I played an Open Skill League game for the PSO. It was the largest freeroll I've played to date, with the maximum 10,000 entrants all vying for points for the league. With a little luck and a lot more patience at the tables, using my newly-learnt position tactics, I busted out in 197th place, well above the 1,440 mark for points for 'cashing'.

Finally, I've just finished an 888poker Iron Status $100 Freeroll, with 1,966 participants trying to secure a top 60 spot for a cash. I finished in 50th, banking $0.50, which I hope can be the start of a decent bankroll.

I had no doubt that studying the articles here would improve my game. But I had no idea it would improve so drastically so quickly! I intend to keep studying these articles, and at some point over the weekend I'll make a deposit and start playing the MicroMillions here. Who knows what it could potentially lead to?

Good luck at the tables everyone!
