      Hia all

      since my last post was about hands and ranges to go all in or fold on the later stages of a deep stack tourniment , iv read a few more articles had a month or 2 practice on cash tables and sit and go tourniments and headed back to the tourniment that i finished 4 places away from the bubble (58th) only this time i learned from previous mistakes and played 6 hrs solid poker and won first place $5,900. ya.

      this was a little practice for the APAT welsh championship tomorrow in cardiff. 1st place out of 850+, 150 people should be a doddle

      I thank you PS.

      Luck will get you so far, skill will get you the rest of the way

      Congrats craigjo & good luck tomorrow,

      The APAT are usually great fun events, I played the Worlds at DTD last year and hope to make this years too subject to diary clashes etc.

      The standard of play is pretty high to be honest, much better than an average £75 casino tournament, so it's best to play a fairly solid game at least initially.
      Mid-game, use of position and steals against the Nits (there's usually at least a couple per table) become especially important.

      Above all else have fun & enjoy the event.

      Good luck buddy,


      Bart
