First humble success in MTT

      After bad days come good days. After winter comes summer.
      Today I just have good day. I was in the zone. Concentrated and calm.

      I know it is crazy but MSS + little loosening up in the final stages + HUD reads + position awareness + semi bluffing works very well for me.

      I won WPT Cyprus Qualifier ticket from pool of above 3000 people (freeroll) on WPT Poker (25 x 1 USD tickets awarded). Then I was automatically registered and there was 90 people in WPT Cyprus Qualifier Speed Rebuy and I ended 3rd. Unfortunately ticket to next step was awarded only to first two. So I was bubble boy in one sense, but I won over 5 EUR and increased my BR 25% :D . Next 5 EUR I won in cash games.

      I think this was my bad decision (what do you think?):

      Party Poker No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t1250.00/t2500.00 Blinds - 3 players - View hand 1800959

      BTN raises to t5000, SB calls t3750, Hero calls t2500

      Hero shows 6 :heart: 5 :heart:
      SB wins t55532.00

      You flop almost as good as you could hope for, if you're gona call preflop you have to stack off on that flop.

      Looks good to me ;)

      EDIT: Now that I look at the stacksizes: You should push or fold your hand preflop. You may find further informations on the right way of playing tournaments in our strategy articles (absolutely recommended) as well as in our video section.

      Congratulations on winning your first money with tournaments.
      Since I want to help you to get an even better start here are some tips:

      1) Have a look at our free bankrolls (click). They are a perfect way to increase your bankroll without investing your own money.

      2) Check out our hand evaluation forums. You may find the tournament hand evaluation forum here. If you have any questionable hand that you are not sure about (like the one you posted in this thread) you can post them in the hand evaluation forum. Our professional hand evaluators will have a look at it and give you valueable advice for free.

      3) Visit the coachings. The tournament coachings take place every monday evening. You will get a lot of input by watching the coaches and asking them questions.

      If you have further questions feel free to ask!

      Thanks! I got from you 50 USD on Everest but could not stand their poor software, so I withdrawed from them. I moved 25 USD to WPT. And now I have 35 USD after 20 days.
