Let's get it on....
I'm quoting myself because I said that just before I went on a string of bad breaks (and a little bad play) that took me down to the depths of the leader board. It was depressing, loosing AA to QJ, having AA pop up when I had KK, getting four-flushed, ... I sunk to inside the bottom 2%.But the thing about a fast tourney strategy is that it's just like that. Inside the game it's move on up or move on out.

The thing is, one win wipes out a whole slew of bad beats.

There are still a bunch of you who delay, delay delay, even though it's like shooting yourself in the foot. You fold 1BB even though you have 4-1 odds to call. Well, not me. I've won once and the only thing I want to do is win again.

Points be damned.
I'm playing for the win.
