Now that i'm back playing poker, I've decided to focus on my mental approach and decision making in tournaments. I recently final tabled a $4 180 man sng because i played really well and made only a few mistakes.
While reviewing today i came across a huge mistake i made that was typical of the mistakes i used to make.I fired both barrels on a bluff from the button into the big blind, who just happened to be the only stack on the table that could eliminate me.
Even though i won the hand, this was such a huge mental breakdown. I put way too much of my stack in the middle needlessly. In addition my bet sizing sucked. this was the one glaring mistake of the tourney and i went on to finish 3rd to a runner runner flush.
