Was playing in a 15.00 buy in playing tight aggressive early had some good starting hands but wasn't catching any flops chip stack dwindling I decided to tighten up even more played a 45min session where didnt call any flops was just a discarding macine, frustration was setting in then caught a pair of hooks bet three times the big blind seat 5 comes over the top all in(chip leader of course) put to the decision although been getting killed lately with jacks what the heck call-yepper kings the flop comes k-8-j now I know I'm a goner turn ace river yepper another jack for quads the sweet elation of the best of all suck outs chip leader is now tilted and pushing every hand catch three out of four flops against the chip leader all premiums have just gone from the basement facing elimination to the chip leader of the entire tourny don't we all just love those swings from facing another elimination to cloud 99 gotta love it when it works out that once in a while ended up at the final table for the first time in a long long time and finished fourth the moral to the story was the early on patience combined with that one suck out we all look for!!!!

Take a breath bro...

More importantly, NEVER spare yourself the self-analysis that follows a mistake just because you won the hand. For this self-analysis is the key to the poker kingdom...(it's the only key)

I like to think that I have never lost a hand which I could have done nothing about or played better in some way. I also think that about many hands that I win and every suck out I serve another player.
