How I Fared in the $50 Buy In
Well I started of getting loads of low pairs pre-flop, which I held onto until after the flop but needless to say, nothing was forthcoming post-flop so I didn't have much luck there.
A couple of times I received a decent pair pre-flop later on in the game and this helped me boost my poker chips a few times, helping me out a bit as although I was holding my own, I wasn't making much head-way.
Second last hand, I went all in with K-K and one other player followed also going all-in in with a pair of 5s. This put me up to 4060 chips and in a decent position, but my pair of 8s in the last hand couldn't hold up to a straight which came on the river for the other player!
Great game though and nice to be playing the higher limits and although not winning, I was holding my poker game together and finished in a fairly respectable 61st place out of 220 starting players.
