I was editing it to be readable and it took so long that I was timed out. Here it is again with my original text and I am pasting the games and cant get em formated
Below are the last 10 tourny I played in, mainly Sng, 2 MTT. I know this is not some big deal, but the reason I am posting them is prior to the first game at the bottom of this list, I had been playing bad, losing, making big mistakes, and just plowing onward. Through out my short life as a poker learner, I have been stumbling across all kinds of new info and things that I had no idea about began to be apparent. I have been trying to learn, and see where I am making mistakes, and asking questions, and, through mainly people I have met here at CC and recommendations they have made, I have been reading SnG strategy by Moshmann, Phil Gordens Little Green Book, and Ryan Fees 6 max book. I have also been reading a LOT on the internet (and have gotten more yet to start - Harrington on Hold'em 1´2, How to beat Sit-&-Go Poker Tournaments by Neil Timothy, Sklanskys The Theory of Poker, and Harrington on Cash games 1+2.) Anyway, I have started a plan where I read, re-read, make notes, memorize concepts, study and try to learn my pot odd and implied odds
(a major weak point, just cant do it good on the fly), counting my outs and relating them to odds, applying the concepts outlined in the books and articles I have read so far, analyzing EVERY game and hand I play before i play again - dont always make it 100% but am getting better - and I have totally changed the way I approach my game. I mean TOTALLY and in a very short time. So I am posting the games I played since I adopted this new attitude, and, I mean i was maybe 5% winning, and big -ROI. I am not so silly as to think I am so good now, and 10 games is NOTHING, I realize that. But it is so great to see that with a change of attitude, and a change of approach, and a strict adhering to the advice of others, it works. My game is still very weak, I am pretty much the same beginner I was last week, but I have plugged a few leaks, and it made a world of difference. It is so motivating. I did do nothing the last couple of week but poker, like 45+ hours a week for 2 weeks,(my wife is pissed) and that luxury will not always be available, but I will read, re-read, apply, review, play, analyze, post, and all over and over, and even tho these games are small fry to most of you, and 10 games (ok, 6 out of 10) can just be a lucky streak, and my inevitable downswing may just be around the corner, for me it is a light at the end of what was a very dark felt covered tunnel. And I realize that hard work can change my whole outlook, and a new outlook can improve my game, and I am only at the start, so much to learn, and I am pumped up. I may be back in 2 weeks whining about where did it all go, but for now I am UP!!
Thank all of you here for great advice and tips!!
p.s. pls dont lecture me on why this is in reality no real reason to get all excited, I know it isnt.... but I am anyway, so there.
