re: Poker & I may have found it...
Todays results: if these are the only tourneys you have played and there is only one losing game you have to assume that you are just running well, I have no doubt that you need some skill to do this but it is very easy to go 5 or even 10 tourneys without cashing once, maybe less so in STTs admittedly - I play 12/18 SnGs and I have gone on runs where I have cashed in 18 tourneys out of 20 but I put this down to running well and not so much to my edge, which can only actually be discerned against people I play against a lot. i.e. regs at my games, because I have a better idea of what to expect from them than I do of random players. If you know you have an edge carry on developing your play so nobody has a clue what to expect from you and reap the profits, then, when you have a bankroll which can handle it, move up and refine your edge further. Sounds good, whatever you are doing is working for you so keep doing it and learning through your play how to make that edge even bigger. Good luck to you, sir.
