Blog post published on Friday, March 06, 2015, written by westside1950.
Hi guys, this is your newest blogger westside1950 writing.I'm flattered by the interest you've shown for my first post, so I'm really looking forward to writing this new blog of mine. I play 3.5€ and 7€ heads-up SNGs on Pokerstars and my nickname there is dknight217. A chip and a chair I made a fair profit over the last few days, and I ran pretty well. I won pretty much all all-in[...]   Read more » A chip and a chair

I think you are spot on when saying that you must pick your spots when making a play. Patience is the key to any form of gambling and betting on every race is a very quick way to the poorhouse in my opinion

A good start to your blog Westside and I have to agree with you,if you don't have the patience to pick the right spots you will lose games you should have won.If I'm the short stack I love it when my opponents starts giving me chances to double up.

Cheer for the post blog, good one, and i hope to see more of them and yeah you get to choose the spots and you will succeed especially at the higher level where you need to know when to push and when not too, at the lower levels it is much more important as if you push a lot against a weak player which just calls then you might get to the showdown with crap cards and pay up.

But if he folds a lot pushing a lot can make you good money when he folds, cheers good luck mate!

Very nice story of a very good poker game. Yes patience is most of the time key to success in poker and life in general.

However in all aspect a little bit or a lot of luck is also necessary to achieve what you did in this game cause i did it once in a live 10 players SNG sitting HU with not enough chips to pay the nex blind and shoved with 3 4 made a straight and end up winning the game.

I will be here to read your next blog and meanwhile best of luck. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

but not all the time ,word patience must awake for something worth aggressive if really needs on position ,balancing should be always stick around to avoid some badbeats crazy calls against monster aa..if we pretend to be weak then long run results may come to a failure, just an additional advice Worship Worship

Nice blog....well done.

I totally concur that you should not just shove all in with nothing hands when you are down to next to nothing but definitely be patient and pick your time and cards to play to maximise your opportunity. Luck does come into it, but more on this basis, it is probability that comes into play, as you are maximising your probability of winning!

How come I never run into russians with this much of a good english? The ones I get around to play with usually just trolling with their playing style, rather than doing it on chat. Big Smile Though it's so sweet to make tilting somebody that a few times I'm able to do this I rarely have enough time left to enjoy it, they've gone so fast.

Pretty solid points in your blog. Also one of the very first things you learn as a tournament grinder. Never Say Die! I can't tell you how many times I have come back from 4 or 5 bb to win a tournament. When you run bad...you gotta play your best.

Yeah, I agree but that implies you only starting play your best when you have left 4-5 BB. So, what were you doing until then?
Tournaments hard to crack IMO both live and online.
