  1. Prahlad Friedman has his table outchipped by $25K... he should have no trouble making the final table. If he wins this bracelet, look out.
  2. When I start to get near $0, I find I play much better, definitely not defensive. I obviously have to drop way down in limits, but it's more like once I get below $5, I build up to $6 playing $.05/.10 HU limit cash game so I can play a $5+.25 HU SNG and when I win that, I'll play another $5+.25... win that, play a $10+.50, win that and get back to a $25 level to get in a $.25/50 NL ring game... and I'm usually off and running again. It's was like a built in test for me and sometimes more fun that just a hovering balance playing the same game.The bold part of your statement makes no sense to me
  3. Maybe you just had one GOOD week.
  4. I only played on UB and FT as "The Future".
  5. What worked well for me was to gradually increase the amount I left in my online poker account after a withdrawal. Say I started with a $50 deposit and built it up to $100. I'd then withdraw $50 everytime I hit $100 to take me back down to $50 until I felt comfortable to play higher. This basically forced me to play to games that I knew I could crush (mostly $10 HU SNGs). As I got more comfortable, I'd move that left-in-account level to say $100, $200, $300, $500... etc, but in order to cashout any $, I'd have to double my current left-in-account amount. Also, I couldn't put money back into my
  6. My bankroll is safely four account transfers away from the poker site. If I go broke on what I have online, it takes 2 days to reload, which is enough time for me to re-read "Ace on the River" and get my mind straight.Oh, wait, I forgot... Washington State sucks. I have to play in the casinos now.
  7. You mean the whole 10 seconds? If you aren't going to be using a huge part of your bankroll, put it in an account where you can earn some interest. Last I checked, NETeller and poker sites don't pay interest. Idle cash is a waste.
  8. Very nice win man.I have this exact say feeling about my first big tourney win. Taking down a big one (by your personal standards, whatever that may be) is like this huge validation for all the time and hard work you put into poker. In my big win a couple months ago, when it got to headsup and the difference between first and 2nd was a big chuck of change for me (around $6K), I suggested some sort of chop when we were both even headsup. The other guy was up for it, but I then thought about how much more gratifying it would be to know I took it down the right way and won it straight up. Taking
  9. It's only going to get worse if you get married... something to think about.
