i ALMOST did it again

I didn't want to play much today so I played only 1 $3.33+R sattelite to sunday warm-up, like yesterday. everything was the same as yesterday: 4th after the break with 42k chips (there were fewer players - only 99 so there were 5 tickets). I think I played well but finished 14th :(

strike69119 wins 213,067 ( won +126,631 )
Pinkman33 lost -86,436
Hero lost -29,195

probably I should have shoved more. I've learned equilibrium play, time to start exploiting my opponents. I've seen so many ugly plays. for example, 1 guy limped in, got raised, called the raise, min-raises flop and the preflop raiser with 3k behind folds when the pot is ~18k

unfortunately I can't win every single tournament :) like someone said at WSOP, I almost had a set.

also I tried my 1st heads-up SNG. I only played HU in tourneys, never as a cash game or sng with even stacks. easy $2 :) this idiot was calling any raise preflop even when he was shortstacked
