AM i satisfied, Not always 100% satisfied. Of course I am happy to get the satisfying win but did I play well and deserve it? Only once I said no. It was luck not skill that day.

Just won one of about 30 entrants, great feeling. I was 15 to 1 dog going into heads up. Never grinded as much in my life, won a lot - lost a lot with suckouts and bad calls but just kept on grinding. Some good players in that list.

It is a wonderful feeling to win a tournament. It generates a lot of happiness and keeps you going for several hours. It's always great to win.

Yes, I am. I know I'm not going to win tournaments every day, so, I enjoy the moment and I'm only going to think about winning the next tournament on the next day.

Of course, I am satisfied even if I made a mistake, but I won.
What greater result could be achieved in a tournament?

Don't worry friend, it's human nature, when you get something you want, your needs grow and so on endlessly, so you may never be happy with your game and that's okay.

I'm always happy if I find free time to play :)
But of course I am often dissatisfied with my results. I don't take prize places as often as I would like, but nevertheless, the game brings me pleasure and that is enough for now to keep playing.

Greed and poker have long gone hand in hand. But their tandem does not add any benefit to the player. On the contrary, greed can force you to bet everything and lose all your winnings in poker. Every poker player wants to win.A greedy player cannot feel satisfied. But you understand that it is not always possible to win in poker, so you need to be able to lose. In any case, someone has to lose, and this is one of the steps to success.I think there are actually very few people whose motivation for playing poker is not greed. After all, the goal of the game is to take other people's money.

For my part, whenever I win prizes in a tournament, I am satisfied because it was my main objective. Then that satisfaction can disappear when you lose the tournament for playing poorly.

To win a tournament you need to have a solid game and a good run. If you ended up winning, it means you made the best decisions, so you must be satisfied.

Whatever it may be or how it was achieved, it is still a victory and this is the result. I know for myself that it is very difficult to get to the final table in the tournament, and taking first place is beyond science fiction. But if you still managed to take first place in the tournament but you didn't like your game, then analyze your game at the end of the tournament in your spare time. Find your mistakes that made you not like the game and think about how you can fix them or what you need to do to improve your score.

Whenever I win, I am furious that I didn't win faster and will remain so until all participants just venmo me their buy-ins in complete prostration instead of registering to the tournament.

Definitely. The whole point of playing the tournament was to win it. I might not be satisfied with how I played, but we are all going to make mistakes. Like most endeavors the one who makes the fewest mistakes will win and that is satisfaction.

If I win, I am satisfied. If I feel that I played well, generally I do too.
But if I finish second or third, sometimes I find myself thinking about what I could have done differently. On that case, I easily forget that I had a good result Although I never played tournaments with a high pool prize. If so, I'd already be celebrating for securing a spot in the prize positions.
