Been about 6 months since i last won a mtt. Although I havnt been playing as much as I did before. Last 2-3 months i´ve been trying again and it finnally played off. this week ive finished second twice one time third and another 2 or 3 times made it to the final table, it´s been a good week. And finnally after all them hours i got to win myself a mtt turbo tournament ; i dont normally play turbo because its all about luck but ive been running good so i thought to myself what the hell, lets go for it.
Had him all in two times in heads up before i finnaly got him with my A3 os all in pre. flopped two pairs and dodged the flush on the river. Great feeling!
I'm not that sure that turbos are all about luck. I'm more of the view its about timing - stealing blinds when they are worth stealing and playing pretty much ABC to start. It works for me. Of course there are times u suckout - and get bad beats - but that happens in standard games. To me its a different kind of skill - and personally i love em.
Congrats, yeah you were really on a good rush and that's not surprising you won it after couple of recent good finishing... and indeed it's always a good feeling to win and be much more motivated for your next playing game.
