Just played another ko sng and finished 2nd again. Boy I just might have to try and play more if it goes this way,lol. I am more trying to play with a just as a hobby attitude now but felt even better this game than the last. Going better than I thought even though I am not playing the best I can some hands.

I was 98% fave on the flop on the last hand and yup I still lost.:rolleyes:

You should try bounty builder tournaments. Maybe try to improve your game? You can watch lex veldhuis, pokerstaples or team never lucky on youtube it should help the basics.

Bounty builder sounds interesting, Not much into mtt's but did play them the first few years here and there Won the same one 3 times and final tabled it like 12 other times on microgaming, Finished 1st in pokerstars sng leaderboard 1 week, Was part of a poker t.v. show so ya know the basics;). Do I remember all of it or what the strategy is nowaday's? No HAHA.

Might be up for a small buy in casinomeister invasion of a mtt 1 weekend though. :)

I can vouch for Twitch having some good streamers. Streamers with winning games willing to discuss strategy and help their viewers improve. It's rarely super high end strategy, more like enough to beat the smaller stakes games. From their, you'd likely want to progress to hiring a coach or doing math heavy learning with some 3rd party software poker software/solver.

Just nearly won another ko sng, I was almost out at 1 point but did some crazy (good?) folds and got myself back into it, Was down 2-1 in chips going into heads up and was able to take the lead at 1 point. Just happy to get something and rewarded for some good play as again I was almost out early.:)

whats a KO SNG? theres too many variants nowadays, Im a dinosaur only playing deep freezeouts! Keeping it simple is my motto.

There should be more poker threads on CM!

BTW got knocked out of the first two mtts but have a couple more lined up that start in around an hour :D

knockout, you get a "bounty" for eliminating player's. Just fired up another game and finally won 1 after a few close calls! wooot a 1st!:D

Unlucky! A second place in a tourney is a win in my book however i spose it is different in sngs. I just got knocked out of the big $0.55 holding queens (both got stacks in pre flop) Got to take the beats!
