      I know i post some stupid beginner question on blogs but this one is for pure joyment!

      Im going to a casino in newcastle (UK) tonight in a £10 + £3.50 1Re-buy tournement tonight! Im so excited!!!! Going with my 3 other good friends too (who are ammatures, so they'll get gobbled up or do well).
      The first time i went to a casino, it was the same tournement. I was shaking, i was nervious, i was abslout over my head since ive only been playing poker for 8months!! But i played in a style which prevented me from loosing many chips and making right plays against weak players, becasue of reads. Staying away from the big stack (he was supper aggressive). All my hard work payed off too. I found £10 on the floor during the 1st break, so my buy-in was for free!!! I didnt need to re-buy too cos i was playing in a patient, position plays. Kinda like the SHC on this site. (remeber i never heard of this site b4 playing in this style). Overall i made the final table and was running out of chips. It his 4am and i was tired and there was 4people left on the table, 4th place won £150 so i thought making a huge profit from my buy-in i pushed all-in with K6s (cuddnt remember the blinds but they looked summit like 3000/6000 or more). Unfortunley my K6 met QQ and i busted out 4th winning £150. Not bad!

      For my 1st time at a casino i thought i did well. i havnt been back because i dont have my car back yet and dont fancy gettin a taxi, bus or train back at 4am so i havn't gone back. But my friend has a car! So the story of this thread is that i did well my 1st time. Let's hope that the second time will go ALOT better now that i have useful tips and hint from this site, plus my experience now.

      I will write back tomorrow to tell you how i did and what posistion i came. Thankyou all for your time for reading this. :)
