re: Poker & I Rhink I'm Starting to get This
I feel I'm beginning to perfect my tournament strategy a little, and tips from all you Cardschatters have feally helped.
Congratz on making all of those final tables, that's gotta feel good.
Now at the risk of sounding jealous and bitter heh heh heh this is my experiance take heed if it applys to you, if not no worries.
Study what you've done, how much was luck and how much was consistant skill, good reads and strategic betting that worked for you. Were you catching cards and on a good run or getting average cards and doing well, or getting cold decked but catching what you needed to get through?
Only you know be honest with yourself, know what worked, what didn't and strive to continue with the consitancy.
When I've had a good run I sometimes will let my ego get the best of me and suffer for it at the tables. "Don't you know who I am! I've won five final tables in less than a week! You can't possibly beat me!"
It's a horrible admission but it's an honest one and one I think that is quite human which any of us can fall into. I watch for this carefully in myself anymore ... poker can be a humbling experiance for an overconfident ego.
Don't want to shake your confidence, that many final table in a short time span is awesome.... Congratz again. I hope you keep it going ...you asked for advice and that's mine..... Study and know why you won, learn how to stay consistant and check that ego.
