      Hi all,

      Great idea, great site, learnt lots already!

      I've been playing the Juno and .25/.10 SNG on Pokerstars, seem to keep getting close to decent payouts but lose when I think normally I should win:

      KK in late stage loses to 89 (preflop - hits str8)
      QQ in late stage loses to 1010 (preflop hits set)
      KK in late stage loses to AQ (preflop - hits A)

      Guess that's poker though!

      I like your guides and find the idea about treating poker as a lifelong game rather than a series of games to be very good advice.

      Passed the quiz now waiting for the do$h, see you on the tables, my pokerstars id is jokerstar618 :)

      Hey sshnugsi,

      Welcome to Pokerstrategy and the Forums!

      Its good to hear you are doing well already in freerolls and SnG's. Unlucky you got some badbeats, but like you said; "Thats Poker". It is a long term game and in the longrun you will win the normal % of these and luck will balance itself :)

      While you wait for the starting capital please feel free to look around the forums and make a few post or friends. And any questions you have dont hesitate to ask and im sure me, or some of the other mods, or people in the community will be willing to help.

      So best of luck, and have fun!
