Thanks for all the support guys! I played another 2 today faired pretty poorly in them.

1st game i had AA,AK,KK in a row and lost with AA and just picked up blinds with the rest
actually got AQ twice in matter of a few hands and lost both cointosses to bomb me out

2nd game i couldnt get further than about 15 minutes of play every table i got placed on ALLIN ALLIN etc etc every hand no matter what I had to call at somepoint and ended up losing. Pretty disapointed i ended up losing my patience tbh

BUT there's light at the end of the tunnel!

Literally just finished another and placed 43rd was another sick hand that knocked me out lol

Had pocket 4's with less than 5 BB so i shoved 2 AQ's called me, flop AAT

i was like wtf lol

they both have aces they both have queens and both remaining aces come out on flop
