It is official, I finally took first in an online poker tournament. No late missteps, no sicko run of bad beats, just solid poker all the way to the end. It feels great, almost the city of Chicago would feel if the Cubbies won the series. It is almost as if a massive weight has been removed from my shoulders. I am ready to ride this wave and hope it lasts for a while. Going to be playing pretty much non-stop until Sunday to try and get number 2 lol. Anyway thanks to everyone on this site for their great insight into the game and kind words as I have battled through this. I wish you all best of luck on the felt and one more time with empahsis... HOOZAH

I know this is going to be a lot to sort through guys and I apologize but I want to show that perserverance sometimes does pay off. I got bad beat in a 9 seat $5 dollar tourney. No biggie, it happens but I want to show what happens when you do not tilt out and remember that you are better then everyone at the table. Stick with this read through it should help us all throught the bad beats we receive and should show that the cream does rise to the top. A small win I know (25.00) but a good reminder none the less.

MTT strategy/help

Alright I am in a bit of dry spell lately so I have been playing more and more MTT and MTT rebuys. Nothing to serious usually 3 or 5 bucks which I think is comfortable with the stack I have been able to build since my last cash ( see last blog). My question is in essence what do I need to do to change my game? I seem to always get past the first break in decent chip position, avg. stack or higher, especially in the rebuys where the nuts seem to come out in the first hour. I play a solid tight game and this seems to be extra rewarding early in rebuys. Although I always do decent for the first hour I can never seem to get over the hump in the second hour. I seem to always do one of two things, flatten out and just snatch a few blinds because of lack of hands or get frustrated as I watch the chip leader and the avg stacks blow past me and try to get lucky with a sub-prime hand. I.E AQ KQ or 88 something along those lines and get busted. I need to do something different but am unsure of what. Any and all help would be appreciated.

I am your typical hobby poker player. I threw 50 bucks on Full Tilt back in January and have been just messing around with 1 or 2 dollar tourney and micro cash games. I recently took 2nd in a 180 person 8 dollar tourney and cashed for 245. I know that $245 isnt that much in the grand scheme of things but for someone who has never seen their bankroll above $120 it is. Part of me says to pull some out and be happy for the profit, but the other part of me says to try and work with it. I have learned a ton over the last 9 months and feel like my game is ready to step into another level. I guess what I am asking is where should I go from here? I am thinking 5 or 10 dollar sng's but am unsure about the bankroll management. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
