      Hi. plebpl, that's a nice result, well done!

      I know it can be frustrating to get close and not quite make it big [especially when it happens a few times in a row], but success is hard to come by so really we should celebrate it!

      Enjoy the success and give yourself a pat on the back, it's good for the mind set and the confidence to know you are doing it right.
      Remember, the more positive you feel, the more likely you will be to play your 'A' game and the more chance you give yourself of getting that big score!

      Have fun and best regards,

      Mal.
