      usually its my best thinking and quick decision making skills that win me tourneys and pots like these. you didnt just say...BLARGH im all in.., or worse..ill just fold without first determining who actually might have the best hand. you used your brain to deduce you could be ahead, and had outs if you werent. good for you!

      Agreed.. i think i played my best poker in this game...

      for the longest time i've been playing tight and lots of tables not thinking and reading opponents not until this past few weeks i'm getting good results and playing less tables that i'm getting good results even though i'm not winning some still happy with the way i'm playing cause i'm putting my chips when i'm ahead most of the time but luck is not on my side until this time. i'm so satisfied and so eager to learn some more...

      great thoughts on your part love it thank you.
