It's certainly possible that it's just luck, though. How many SNGs we talking?
Very good advice Beriac, thanks. There was a time I wouldn't go back and look at my recent failures. However, I have and while there are some hands I'd like to have some hands back (wouldn't we all ), there isn't too much I'd change. Without turning this into a bad beat post...a few examples
1. 3 handed situation: get dealt QQ and short stacked. Push and get beat by AA
2. 6 handed situation: get pocket 10's raise and isolate one person. flop comes 10 K 7 rainbow. I push with a big bet, get raised all in. I put the person on AK and call..he trumps my set of 10's with a set of K's!!!
As far as the number of SnG's, it's probably around 40 or so. The point of my post is to let people know you're not always playing poorly if you go on a losing streak. I know I used to think that way and that thought process has changed!!
