Thanks for that, i agree about the worry. I am perhaps overly concerned about losing each and every hand. Strange I appear to be very loose when looking myself up and but feel tight and weak. Looking at some videos would be a good idea I will do this. Interesting idea about splitting the money for cash games and tournaments.
I just got 3rd in the Full Tilt NZ freeroll for$9 boosting the balance! then logged in here for a little read.
The win makes me feel a little better as earlier today playing 1c 2c i open raise in mid position to 46c with QQ, (there have been some large bets, action given, poor cards shown), so I think I'll take the blinds and maybe hook a donk. nice low J x x flop i got it all in, K 10 off calls.... turn a king. Lost, mm let me see 90bigbets and an hour hard playing, in a mall, on a leather sofa, outside the clothes shop my beautiful poker playing partner buys some new clothes.
She arrived just in time for me to tell her ive nearly doubled my starting stack and see my QQ. Maybe my ego got in the way there as well o dear.
In the freeroll did score a nice full house with pocket 8s on QQ 10 board, i bet he raised, i didnt beleive the guy, he has KK i get an 8 on the river.
Also split pot holding AQ behind AK on A rags flop, A4235 board! So tbh I shouldnt complain because thinking about it my putting bad beats on others seems about a draw for now.
Its a good job shes into poker cos she puts up with me spending err.. some time at it. She cashes in the NZ freerolls
pretty easily and plays pub poker twice a week (and won the league!)
