hello to all at pokerschool
i am taking this time to write this post as i feel i need to apologise to a number of members for a number of reasons.
i have been playing poker in private cash games for a number of years and have always done well,i can honestly say that over the past 5 years i have made a considerable profit,but tournament play is a whole new experience and a whole new ball game.
i went to a casino for the first time 3 months ago and played in a pot limit holdem tournament,it was my first experience playing against such a large field and to my surprise i took 1st prize,from that moment i was hooked and have played in many tournaments since.
Thats where my problems begin.since that first tornament i have played around 30 more but only made 2 final tables and not finished better than 6th.obviously the first tournament i caught the cards and made the right moves and had a certain amount of "beginners luck"but since then i have realised i cannot continue to play my cash game in tournaments.
i came accross pokerschool by accident but after reading into it a little i thought it would be the ideal place to learn how to play tournament style.sorry for droning on for so long but here comes the apology.


I AM SORRY TO EVERYBODY WHO HAS BEEN BUSTED OUT OF A TOURNAMENT EARLY BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO GO ALL IN WITH 7 2 OFF SUIT THEN CAUGHT 7 2 RIVER AND TURN TO BEAT AA,I AM SORRY TO EVERYBODY WHO HAS RAISED ME WITH AA,KK,AK ETC WHO IHAVE RERAISED WITH 22 AND CAUGHT A 2 ON THE RIVER.
PLEASE FORGIVE ME AND TRY TO REMEMBER THAT ALTHOUGH I KNOW THE RULES THE CASH PLAYER IN ME KEEPS TRYING TO REWRITE THEM,SO ALTHOUGH I FEEL I AM POSSIBLY IMPROVING I STILL FEEL SURE THERE WILL BE A FEW MORE "BAD BEATS"TO COME BUT I PROMISE I AM NOT A FOOL,A RAGMAN,AND ANY NUMBER OF NAMES I HAVE BEEN CALLED I AM JUST A NOVICE.

if anyone made it to the end of this post thanks for listening and sorry for boring you to death but the point is,i know i am guilty of bad play but i wont get any better if i dont make mistakes and learn from them.
so once again SORRY

Starting January 1st there will be a penelty imposed for apologizing to someone after winning a pot. Good thing you got it out of you now.

(Oh, don't worry... someone from SSPAC will contact you if your
play is not measuring up to standards.)

Your play is "your play."

I like it when you make those sub-optimal plays. You get positive re-enforcement when you get there (makes you want to do it again). Please keep it up. I want you to make it occassionally (even against me). I don't like the results, of course. You'll get to be so bad you'll have little chance of winning in the future.

You're setting a dangerous precedent here. Pretty soon everyone will want an apology then their AA or KK - or even Jh Th - gets cracked.

And if one gets an apology, it the event no longer eligible for a "bad beat" story. What a drag!

Besides, I'm a bit confused. Are uo saying it's NOT right to raise all in with 7 4 os and win?

- which is wrong? the raise?? or the win??

Meanwhile - a very Happy and Prosperous New Year to everyone here ta PSO - staff and players.

- and a special thanks to Mark and Tina for a great 2002!

Personaly, I like what you do. As long as its not to me. Since I can't see the other player's faces, I must imagin the look and sound thats happening in front of their computer. (that's my entertainment while waiting for the perfect cards in the perfect position.) I my self have had to replace my screen three times since joining PSO.

Cheers
