A while ago I dropped a horriiiiiiible rant here on forums blaming software and PS staff for my lame plays as well as trying to convince myself that I got cheated, though I was just playing bad.
However I just kept playing and improving my game while keeping my cool at the same time... and today I won my first "huge" (don't laugh here) win in a $1.00/$0.10 USD buy in tournament. I won second place which is nice. You finished the tournament in 2nd place. A USD 281.72 award has been credited to your Real Money account. It means a lot for me as online poker newbie.
Before this tournament I tried to improve as much as I could not only by playing, but learning from others. I think main reason I went so far in this tourney is this -> http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/art...ffsuited-hands also I watched some live training at NLHE cash by one of poker pros (sorry can't remember the name!).
After the game I checked out few tough spots I was in and spots where I did some bad plays, to sum up I think those small and some big mistakes snowballed and was the reason why I finished 2nd. But hey I'm doing something right now!
To sum up I hope that's not my last win and I'd like to play some higher stakes tourneys in the future Aswell as I'm sorry for the bad stuff I said before. I know this might look tacky and lame for some readers, but I just wanted to post this for the microstakes players who might be disappointed about their game and blame others for it.
And good god I hope I posted this in a right section, because this took me quite a while to write lol
