Saying it is easy is one thing. Getting a big stack especially early is another one. But you seem to have found a way doing this time after time Lets see how much you are going to win today. Good luck with your games.

Well just hit the add-on after late reg ended and now sititng in 17th currently.
With only 136 runners left to get through hopefully my stack will hold up and make a cash in this one.
Also important to note that used 1 bullet only with 2 add-ons so only 3.30 invested so if i can manage a final tbale or close to it should make decent profit on the day.
Got some sick hands against me in the 75$ gtd and couldn't hang on and decided to focus on the 750$ instead and play A game.
Wish me luck guys!
------------ Wow just got super lucky and doubled up against a bigger stack. had lost about 8 K very quickly after break and needed to score a hand and decided that A2 suites clubs was goo enough. I shoved preflop and get called by bigger stack with QQ and i hit Miracle Turn Ace and it holds.
Now have more than 47K Stack and sitting 4/107. Hey maybe it ws my turn to suck out on some else like it happened to me over and over this week. So the gods are finally smiling back on me ? Hope so.
Back to it i go.
------------ Bam just had pocket 7's hold against smallar stack with 22 and i pickup nice little chunk to get stack up to 56K.

Into 1st place now after a bluff with absolute junk pick me up some more chips to take lead!
------------ Wow what a blow up i juts did.
Was running so good and threw it away for nothing. can't believe that just happened.
Might be sick with this one playing so well for so long no mistakes and then this happens. i need a head check. ' 46th place finish now 2 days in a row and both were blow ups. Sonthing's happened to me again late and i can't figure it out.

Interesting title to this thread, which is of course exceptionally true and can often be seen at the poker tables with a group of players getting huge stacks in the first few hands . The key is of course building on it and maintaining that advantage, as Lady Luck could pounce on you at any time and take it all away from you. Focus on the whole game and success will be a short distance away!
congratulations on a good result ... the moment when you were a little unlucky and you did not get in the prizes was of course a temporary failure and here again you returned to your good level of the game .... I wish good luck in the future tournaments and I think we will soon see the message about success

well I guess this is a good experience to you, you admit yourself that you did something really stupid and this is good, now all that remains after this act is to pick up and continue playing with the added experience as a bonus- bad experience are valuable as long as we learn from them.

To play all tournament with a big stack happens not simply. Perhaps, there came time when you lost that wave which was since the beginning of a game. Most likely you lacked endurance. I hope at you next time it will turn out better. I wish good luck and not to be upset. TheIrish77 still for you ahead
