      I just got the 50$,and it's time 4 some magic baby!

      my goal is to stick wiz low as 1.20$ till i have the Bk to move till 2.20$ cuz some pplz on this site told me that 50$ is not a good Bk 2 2.20$ ! maybe i will move when i have 90 or 100$ !

      even dat i knew it, i played 4 sit and go , heads up, fixed hold em, 2.20$ ! donno why really! i won 3 out of 4 !

      and then i played 1 sit and go , 9 handed 1.20$ , i end up the 2nd winnig 2.70$

      i was the chip leader, 80% , and when there is only one left, i had like 8 K and he had 5 K and this is the hand that made me lose and end up the 2nd

      Dealer : me ( 8050) A 4 off
      big blind ( 5450) J 9 off

      smal blind 100$
      big blind 200$ ante: 25$

      i had a good read on him , and he was stealin the blinds alot , wiz raising me evry single time, so i thought A 4 is good so i called and then he raised to 400$, i called

      FLOP 4 4 9

      he raise 600$

      i call

      Turn : 9

      he raise 600$ , i went all in ! he called lol !i was suprised, i thought he was cont his betting, puted him on an over pair , maybe TT !

      River J !

      and i only had left 2000$ or so ....

      Hi Aceontheriver!

      Really nice to see another SNG player blogging! Playing SNGs is kind of a science of its own so don't worry when you don't win every SNG right now you just only started! It is kind of a success that you are making profit already so you're doing way better than me when I was getting started..

      You should definitely watch all the available videos as they are an awesome way to learn more after you read all the articles.. Also visit coachings they are also very helpfull and usually a lot of fun!

      Anyways, good luck to you and see you at the tables and in the coachings!

      P.S. don't worry about the hand you posted even though maybe you could have played it a little bit better it is just a bad beat IMO and such things will ust happen from time to time. Nothing raelly you can do about it..
