Hi!

I am not sure if this is the correct forum for it but I need to put this down in writing so that I will not forget.....

after having played many of them BRM Freerolls (no idea of the exact number) both on FT and PS I finally made it to the final table and ended 3rd Cool and can now find myself within the Top 100 of the leaderboard Big Smile

This has not been the overall 1st time to get a seat at the final table - but with regards to BRM it is.
Very happy to finally having made it. 90 % of my past tries ended just short of the bubble or at the very beginning.
Why short of the bubble you want to know? Because I was not as disciplined as one needs to be. Once BigStack I loose control and try to play every hand and even change my way to play. Aww crap!

THANKING alll you responsible people for them many Freerolls, all you wonderful poker pro´s (or semi-, quarter-pro) for letting me participate from your knowledge!

Congratulations Luke

Thumbs Up from me, not just for the final table finish (which all of us here that have ever entered a BRM freeroll know just how hard it is), but for the lovely way in which you announce it Smile

Not bragging - but thanking. Great attitude Thumbs Up


I hope this is the spur for you to go on and make many more final tables Smile

Congratulations to you on reaching your first final table and lets hope you can go one better and win the next tournament. You will have to reach a few more final tables to move up the leaderboard and i wish you well in this pursuit

epic performance there dude, we all are happy for you.

well since this is a place to brag about ones results, i am in a hurry to jump onboard and announce that i too managed to reach a final table Shock this one of a kind awesomeness happened when i joined some random 1 table sng yesterday... believe it or not- i was immediately put on the final table... surely this is because stars respect me and know that i am a very good player

Congratulations on your achievement and good to see players still feeling excited about reaching the final table.When I first started playing I would always get very nervous if approaching the final table and feel great if I got there.
I don't know how often you visit this forum but there are always players here who will answer questions and there are some very good,experienced players willing to help. Smile

Appreciating your moral support, thanks to all Smile Thumbs Up

I generally am not the bragging kind of guy.
But I was and still am looking for help and support to improve my poker abilities. So I came to the right place Blink
I believe that it is not a standard attitude (special nowadays) to help someone and/or even let someone participate in someones success. So this forum sure is something good and special! Worship

I do hope that this will not be the one off - but maybe it was that last kick showing me that I can not succeed without being disciplined as the 1st rule.

-> pochui, congrats to you too
-> Skpmorita, wishing you absolutely the same *lmao*

Wishing all of you the best of success and necessary luck!

I wouldn't say that yout,you have had good results and won money.Every poker player loses but not all win.
I think any advice about poker is worth thinking about even if you decide not to do it,you can tell all new players not to limp or they should be 3 betting here etc but most will work things out at their own pace with their own way of thinking.
At the moment I'm playing fast forward for small periods of time and I'm trying to work out the best way to deal with players limping with small/medium pairs or weak connected hands,I keep a lot of notes,I have read lots of theories but at micro stakes it seems to be catch 22.Any thoughts? Smile

Good advise, Heskor - I should also get a rest and quit playing for a day after a kind of 2 day poker marathon Blink
M8, don´t let yourself be stopped studying. I will take over your share of the fun Tongue

yout85 Thumbs Up Smile
keep it up that way Big Smile

Just reconsidered if I actually am keeping to your "not to limp" advise. I am, so far so good.
Still having issues with the betting so this will most likely be the next training I will look into.

Not easy reaching the final table in such a tournament. Not only thee are too many participants,
but the play in the biggest part of the tourney is a bit of a lotto play..
SO congratulations on your win, but dont get disappointed if that doesnt happen again real
soon Smile

I was being facetious klash.... I'm clearly brilliant Blink

Even at (or more accurately, ESPECIALLY at) the micro stakes, good play will be rewarded in the long run - and though it may feel as if the players at that level not doing what they're "expected" to do makes good play less important, it actually makes it much more important.

If players are constantly limping - that's a good thing... Just raise when you are strong and fold when you're not... don't limp along with them - you have to make them pay for their mistakes, and the best way to do this is with a very standard tight/aggressive approach... So selective with the hands you raise with, but when you do raise - always follow up bet... if they bet off into you, reraise even if you've missed - constantly give the impression of strength.

Meek play will get you nowhere against fish. Show them who's the boss...

(That's you) Big Smile

Mober,
no way can I be dissapointed when not repeating this in near future. It already took me a hell of a lot time to get there. Believe me, I had it all. You name a situation I surely have experienced it. Appreciate your concern, though. Thumbs Up

yout, awesome advise Worship
I keep to the follow up bet but either losing my courage at the turn or else. Will try it your way now!
Will get back with results.

Hey Luke,I don't like to give advice myself,I'm still always in two minds as to which way to play and most players will usually interpret advice in their own way,I like to listen to experienced players and hope that it sinks in eventually.



Yeah yout,we all know you are really Phillip Yout Ivey!! Smile
I think all new players know that more aggression is needed,I do,but at micros I tend to find that if they get 3bet the limper will fold but if I have notes saying they'll call 3 streets with top pair etc I want to play which is maybe the wrong approach.
Maybe I should start a thread called "ask Yout"... Smile

Getting to a final table any time is a feat,...and it's all exciting when the table lights light up the table...!,...but getting to a final table on PokerStars BrM games without having to check into a mental hospital,...is a totally other story....!

Not too bad on Full Tilt though,...a little more sane mode of play over there...!

The ones on Party Poker last February were AWEsome...!!! I'd like to see those return for another go...! Smile Thumbs Up Dollar

Congratulation for your final table. I also tried it so many times but I never made it to a final table. Usually there are so many players participating that it is nearly impossible. So be proud.
