      By following the hand chart provided in the strategy section I was able to easily place 2nd in a $.50 tournament.

      The final hand I had hu was A-Q off suit, I raised he re-raised all in ( something he was doing a lot in that game ), I called, he had K-4 offsuit.

      Flop comes down 8H-10S-JH, turn came down a 3D which didnt help anybody. The river came down a 4C and I lost the game.


      Atleast I got 2nd place tho and picked up a nice $.38 profit.


      Thanks strategy section :D

      I switched to the $1 sngs and played 41 tournaments all together, im up $4.50. :f_biggrin: I was close to being up 10 dollars at one point, but ran into some bad luck.

      Yeah haha oops I forgot to mention that :P


      Yes it was a .50 cent SnG.. I just tried another one and got 3rd. Im in another one right now, so if I lose this I will be down $.90 all together. I need first here to make a profit.

      Im playing 2% of my bankroll. Its going to take a long time to earn enough for the $1 games, so wish me luck haha:D


      Out of the 60 hands I played on that tournament I only hit maybe 2-3 of the hands posted on the chart, everyone folded to my raises so I guess it worked out well.

      My final hand was A-5 in the BB me and the SB were in he called I checked, the flop came down 6-A-7 with two diamonds. we both checked it down to the river, no diamond or str8 draw were in the hand. He bet 200 on the river which came a Jack, he was a pretty loose player so I re raised him all in and he insta called. He had AA lol ... I put him on the Jacks, but according to the hand chart I should of folded the A-5 to any bet, so if I followed the rules of the strategy guide I should of still came out atleast 2nd.


      Lesson learned haha :P ..

      This is on mansion poker by the way, anyone else playing there right now?
