Ok so it was only a $1 SnG... I just wanted to play and the way things are going was frankly afraid to play for REAL money. Anyway I hung on to win this one. At one point I was down under 10X the big blind and had to push all in I don't know how many times but fate finally shined on me and I actually won the sucker. I put a couple of horrible beats on people but I figure I'm owed a couple...hundred.
It wasn't much but just to finally win SOMETHING was much needed. I may well stick with these little $1 SnG's both single and mult-table until I get a little confidence back. They are probably decent practice for my no-limit game. Even if the competition is hardly the best, it seems to be better than it used to be at this level. At least I finally felt like I had some clue what I was doing. I did not play as well as I'd have liked, I was a bit hesitant and probably a bit timid even but I bit the bullet and got aggressive when I needed to and this time it worked.
Just thought anybody who reads this journal might like to see some good news for once (this one's for you Robin and Connie since far as I know you are my entire readership at the moment).
