In the money 4 of 5 competitions is nothing to be messing with.
Avoid the cash tables for a while, as you could lose all that in one sitting.
Just my humble opinion......
Why avoid the cash games table? $10 buy-in on a 0.05/0.10 table is plenty to hone your skills at poker. Let's see... $230 with his initial $40, that's $270. 27 buy-ins for the no-limit table.
Maybe you took it the wrong way, but I think most of the forummers meant well. Just a little reality check. downswings can really hit a new player quite hard sometimes.
And I meant it when I said "good Job!"
