Well done. Cheer up! You did great. Don't focus on the negatives. There are a lot of them for all of us.

And lol, you've actually posted two (and a half) threads about this MTT.

well lately I've been playing A LOT of $2.20/180 SNGs

in two and a half days i won 1st place 3 times, got 2nd place 3 times and made ITM plenty of times. i think at least once out of 7 or 8 tries

Ok so heres the thing about this dude. I had AA beginning of the final table he sucked out on me with two pair when there was flush /straight on the board and he did not bet to push me out. i was reluctant to bet, he was SCARED

I was behind few times when i was heads up but i was able to trap him sometimes to gain back the lead but he was SCARED, he was LOOSE , very loose making stupid calls, AND because he was scared he often doesn't take the advantage when he should BET

last couple hands, the mistake was actually on me for 99.9% so...

well i cashed over 180 today getting 1st place finish AND 2nd place finish.

right now im multitabling same SNGs and in one of them im in 1st place among 80 players remaining.

today i was winning 90% of my show downs, playing selective hands, betting well, aggressively and playing very tight

only seeing the flop less than 13% of the time and stealing blinds a bunch of times AND IM NOT SCARED!
