Get In Here For Some Of The Real Thing

You know how it is. You're playing a long tournament, and your mind is wandering. You have the latest South Park open (hilarious).

Do you know who is agressive at your table? Who is tight? What does it matter? You've been here before. If you get a nice size stack, you'll pay attention. But for some reason, you just haven't been getting that big stack lately . . .

I am a tournament player myself and find that my concentration is improved by playing many tournaments simultaneously. On a side note we have recently started building a poker article database and would love to post stories and strategies from serious poker tournament players in our different categories. If you are interested check out our site at and drop me a line on If not, perhaps we can do some link exchange instead.

Best Regards
