I shall have my revenge!

Hmm... perhaps I played this one (45-player SNG) just a bit too tight:

During current Hold'em session you were dealt 58 hands and saw flop: - 2 out of 7 times while in big blind (28%) - 1 out of 9 times while in small blind (11%) - 4 out of 42 times in other positions (9%) - a total of 7 out of 58 (12%) Pots won at showdown - 2 of 4 (50%) Pots won without showdown - 4

I ended up busting out in tenth place, just out of the money. My patience is improving, but I probably could have made it into the money had I not over-played Kournikova in EP to try to steal the blinds against a big stack -- who cold-called, then pushed when an ace turned up on the flop. Damn. That cut my stack in half, but at least I've learned enough to get away from that particular danger signal.

The particularly galling bit was that of the final two tables, I had been seated at the little stack table; 7 of the players had M < 2, and I was one of the big stacks just salivating for some cards so I could feed off the weak. Then the evil teleporter sent me to the table of big stacks, and I became an average stack (until that little Kournikova play, which made me a wee wee stack).

Ah well. Poker, I shall have my revenge.
