I agree, which means if you get a good finish, it'll be more impressive. GL

a nice result,
But it has been noted that i tend to over value mid pairs (tens especially) pre flop.

So i have a question for you.

Why did you re-raise Preflop?

standard 3 bet raise 1010 and over. In these you gotta play these hands like this to get chips into the pot. As you can see this time it worked for me. If i never hit on the flop i would have checked folded and waited for another chance to double up. Its hard to play tag in these as you just blind out. I am 22 games in and just starting to find a way to play them that works for me. You also gotta remember you get so many callers that top pair is never good enough. I think i could start pulling this back as i have missed 2 final tables by getting involved with the big stacks. Its hard to let go off aa kk v a big stack preflop . My time will come and i am pretty confident on this 1. A few bad results and a few bad beats and suck outs! but playing well 1 table at a time and a little bit off luck starting going my way. Fingers crossed ill final table at some point today.

Hmmm. I would think an approch simular to the open league would work. ayt least till some of the crazies go out.

I will fire a few up and have a play.

Hi M,

only tried one so far on bubble with QQ shoved called by A5 he won with 2 pair A's and 5's leaving me 1.2 BB on my BB i went out in 36th place.

Had a VPIP of 16 over all but deliberatly did not speed up, i think when blinds hit 100 i may get more agressive in future games.

Preflop raise of 14

VPIP in SB 33% arrrr it is haunting me, no wait thats only 2 times out of 6 okay thats not so bad.

Yes i only Min cashed and thats not the aim of the game but.... had my QQ on bubble held up i would had 16k chips and been in 10 place or so.

Yes before I get 80000000 replies this is a sample of 1 i shall be doing more but for now its faimly time.

I use the hold em' version which works fine even in tourney play. I was given good advice a while back to try this out and get used to reading a HUD before getting the likes of PT3 or HM2 as they have a lot more complex features which can be overhelming for a beginner.

Great graphics on this software too M.

Hey M.,

If in the unlikely event that you bust out of challange play a couple more, BUt play Nitty tight untill the Blinds get to 100 and see if that helps or not.
