I play different games all the time, but will be keeping track of Regular 9 man SnG's. I hope to be able to play all 100 games, as my allotted poker time as diminished a lot. I've been doing good at 50/50, so playing regular SnG's will be a challenge in itself.

I will be taking $100 from my bankroll and putting it to the challenge
So here we go

10 games down, so I went to PT3 to learn from my mistakes and here's what I found:

Game 2, SB, I call an all in with 66, to find out he has JJ...... Shouldn't of called
Game 5, SB, I go all in with AJo, BB calls with T7o and catches a flush....Got donked
Game 7, BB, I decided to go all in with 44, button calls with AKo and catches K on the river.......Why go all in????
Game 8, BB, only 4 players left so I call his all in with QJs, he has 1010 and they hold
Game 9, I call the 10BB with 66, so does another player, flop 222. I go all in with a full house, the other player has 88.....again with the all in
Game 10, I go all in with TT, only 4 players left, big stack calls with 66 and catches a 6 on the flop

Now for the next 10

More bad beats, AK flop AA7 he went all in with a pair of 2's, I call and he catches a 2 on the river to finish 9th

Still 40 games to go, I need to get in second and third gear
