Yea I've seen you around, my general time of playing in the day has changed a bit so its been a while i think.
And yea WiZZiM, I agree I should stick to one format, thanks for helping me get it straight. Since I'm better at SNGs, I'll stick to those, 9 man regs and DONs (kinda what I was doing before). It's just if I had to pick an area to specialize in, it'd be 6 man cash. But I think I suck too much for that so I'll try to stick to SNGs for a while.
I think this is a common path for most poker players, right? Starting with SNGs and moving from there? I think SNGs are the most forgiving, since you are limited in your losses and there is some idea of what you'd win.
