It has been a long time since I played seriously either online or in person. I have been going to school and didn't really find the time to really play. Once in a while I would play a tourney or two. It is amazing to me, how much I need to relearn or remember I learned it. lol
I used to last a lot longer in tourneys, I knew better when to fold. I have noticed I am putting too many chips in the pot before the river. Sure I have been getting beat by hands that should have not called. But maybe I am making the pot too appealing. Especially at beginnings of tourneys, you should really not be having that much in the middle at the earliest stages.
Good luck at the tables, I could use some.
Like with most things, the more you play, generally the better you get... with one caveat, you need to practice sound strategies. At the end of the day, even if you play the right strategies, chance can still have you coming up short.
The key to long term success, is surviving the downturns, while making the most of your upswings. Everything else is semantics.
