My first live tournament
I think this is the most relevant forum ?
So I have played a lot of online Poker over the last year and last night decided to take the plunge and tackle a live tournament.
There were 45 players and I place 19th.
I was quite please with this considering it was my first live tournament. I was really nervous at first but managed to settle in and in the end I think it was my over confidence that cost me! Although I did have a couple of really unfortunate beats.
My last hand I went all in as the blinds were getting high and I really needed to double my stack.
I had AQ suited and the guy had J9..
flop - A59
So I was fairly unlucky and felt that I had done the right thing at that point.
My question is, how many tournaments should I give it before I decide live Poker is not the way for me? I have done fairly well online but must admit I found playing live much more exciting!:
