IRISH, it's always nice to play well and score well, and even better to do it over a consistent period of time. I haven't played any sit n gos for a few weeks, mainly been playing cash tables and building my profit along as we go. So maybe see you at the felts soon.

From a few days that you post many of very good results, for that congratulations.
But i have questions. - Do you have breakeven or more? - What you buy.in (50bb´s, 60bb´s 100bb´s)? - Do you play how much hours a day or a week? - How much you put in o start playing or you build your bankroll from freerolls? - Do you have learned from internet, or you get some friends in the poker world to discuss some hands and strategie?
Thank you if you can answer this kind of questions, this if you want of course, i'm no obligate you to answer if you don't want. This is just a litle bit to understand for me and other players a litle more to improve or see other ways to play poker.

Hi Luisexy69, Thanks for the questions and sure I'll do my best to answer them all for you.
For this year I really only started playing about 3 months ago. I had posted that I had taken a break due to some family obligations.
I started the year off with just under 100$ in my PS account which I played horribly with and made no progress. I did deposit once a total of 30$ to actually have money to deal with all the ups an downs.
Since then I've been playing some really good poker and getting some decent scores. I don't cash in all events but I do cash pretty consistently which keeps my roll going up.
My Buy-ins are 1.50 6-18-45 runners & now I'm playing more 3.50 6-18-45 runners all no limit holdem.
I play about maybe 4-5 hours per day on average lately. I'm very lazy when it comes to dedicating my time to this on a regular basis and need to focus more to improve my game quicker.
Mostly played in my High School as a kid for pennies and learned a lot of variations of poker at a younger age. I now follow poker very religiously and read as much as possible form the experts.
Hope this helps with your journey on this crazy ride called poker and hope you can find your own successes soon buddy!
------------ Okay just took down another 3.50$ 6 max for a 12.45$ score ! When it rains it pours I guess.
Also sitting 6 of 11 on a 45 man 3.50 currently at the break. Wish me luck.
------------ Just made the money stage and should be winning this whole thing. Sitting 3 of 7.
had pocket Aces prior to final table and guy hit trip 7's on river instead of going home.
------------ out in fifth. bad play on my part against big stack. KQ Suited vs A6o Bricked board for he hit 6 that's it.
Another 12.91 for the bankroll is good I guess but It should have been much more. Live and learn is my new saying of the week. I need to learn quicker I guess.

I sometime shoved with K Q but only when i am low stack and in a real need od chips. I dont like it cause usually you will be called by one with an ace and you absolutely havr to hit to win the hand. But i dont say its a big mistake to do it cause there are a lot of players that are doig it. I think that you have learn a lot in the pst year and your latest ITM are proving it.

It was bad on my part pinotte. It seems to be the biggest hurdle that I have to overcome so far. I push too often with no pair or hands that look good and of course when I have chips I shouldn't be so easy to give them away like that.
Again I will hopefully learn and make better decisions from here on out!

------------ Just hit a break and caught two more big hands.
now more than 25 k lead on 2nd place and almost 30k on third.
Just need to lean on them with my stack and use big hands.
i think u should apply pressure in this situation and not just wait for them to bust. U have to use ICM in your favor - u should open wider because they fight for second place and will play way tighter then normal. This way u acumulate even more chips and u have easy way to win whole thing caus u get in HU with massive chiplead. hope it makes sense

Cheers mate playing your first few sngs always going to be difficult to adapt first as you will have to get used to the flow of the games and the chips and if you play hyper for first time, it can be pacey and you will have to be careful how you play and so on, or you might end up going in too light with all that push of chips going all around. Anyway peace out and have fun at the tables good luck in everything you do mate , cheers!
