So today after playing very poorly in every one of my regular style sngs, i decided to give the 1$, 90 player [turbo] games.. i ended up putting my last 1$ on that game... AND WON after the win, i have played 2 more, and won ANOTHER ONE!
My lifetime record at these tournys is 2/3 for 1st both times!!
Very happy with they way these games have gone, and i think im gonna stick with them
Wish me luck!
Hope to see you all on the felt

Congrats for this despite the lolsamplesize

You must be careful not to get too complacent though as you can easily hit long stretches of no ITM.

Similar things has happened to me when I tried new games/stakes in the past but usually it has been followed by a downswing.

My theory is that these initial good runs could be due to a combination of factors:
a) when trying a new stake I tend to concentrate on my game. after a spell of good run I get overconfident and start multitabling too much or read forums while playing and so on.
b) when I am a newbie in a game/stake before I have adapted to how people play these I may be playing erratically throwing the regs off guard.
c) the regs simply have not yet collected enough statistics on me to be able to crush me. as soon as they have some stats and seen some showdowns they have my number
