I am not sure whether it's advisable to give advice while playing on a tournament or not, but I did. A player, Purple Vike, was not doing to good and another player berated him for going all-in and winning on a River-card. My nature went to his defense and reminded the other player that We All have faced same circumstances. We were very close to the Pay and Purple Vike was very low on chip-count. He mentioned not knowing much and asked for advice. Quickly, I mentioned that his focus should be to Climb. He responded, "Climb?" I said, you still have enough chips to try to climb (get your stack built-up) before the Blind Eats your Stack. Well, when the blind call was on him, all had folded so I folded, too! That helped him get a nice foothold on his stack. A few hands later, I had pocket Aces; but the flop didn't favor me and I have lost many times with pocket aces. Purple Vike placed a decent bet and had about three callers; I folded. He had a nice, high flush and climbed to 50 or 60,000 in chips. I said, "Your looking good. Now, start being selective in your calls." I, then went on to mention CardsChat. "You can learn a whole bunch from the CardsChat community. Players there are willing to give advice on so many different subjects." Purple Vike then mentioned being a member known as Purple Reigne. We both were in the pay when I was moved to another table. No! I didn't come in first place. I came in Second place. Okay, okay not second either! Don't hesitate to be yourself. It's okay to look beyond selfish Greed and step up to the plate and go to Bat for someone else. It's okay; it really is. GOD bless you all. Now, go get them!
