Re: OT: SNG Psychology help...

That's why I seem to prefer dumping my first set and then digging myself out of a nice little hole. Once I've done that the fear of losing has been conquered and I can continue to play undetered.

Re: The nature of 800 chip games

Re: Theory: Approach to Very Short Stack Play

See what you think of this concept.
