My Biggest Score (warning: brag post)
Tonight I made the biggest score of my young poker career. It's not much in comparison to what some players on here have made, but it more than doubled my existing bankroll.
I received slightly over $500 tonight in a 5-way deal that I made in a $5.50 MTT on PokerStars
. There were 1430 entrants, and it took over 6 hours to play.
I made the deal while 4th in chips, and received more than 3rd place money.
When the deal was completed, and everyone was playing for fun and TLB points, I ended up winning the whole thing, which is a hug boost of confidence.
Several times during this tournament I was down to below 3 BB's, and at one point I had 610 chips.
I got lucky two major times along the way, but both times I got the money in with the best hand and re-sucked out .
Recently I have been feeling very confident in my tournament game, and I believe that I have made many improvements in just the last few months. I had been getting slightly frustrated when I would get knocked out instead of winning a coinflip and having a big stack. Well, today, I finally won those coinflips and ended up victorious.
I know I still am a LONG LONG LONG way away from being even a decent poker player, but I plan to continue to study and read up on strategy, and above all keep playing.
Thanks for listening to this blatant brag post. Good luck to you all!
