It's true: I've been playing more no limit poker

tournaments than razz events to prepare me for that $1,500 WSOP no limit event...which I didn't get in.

The other mistake I made was that once I got into the Full Tilt main event 150 seat give away, I didn't play any events to get a seat. In that event when it got down to 650 players, I re-raised a player all in with pocket Jacks thinking he was on a late position steal. Wrong! He had A-K. I was happy, though, when the flop missed him, the turn missed him...yeah, on the river he hit his Ace. That hand sealed my fate.

I tried the steps on Poker Stars three times. I did get as far as the 4th or 5th step one time...I can't recall which one it was now. On the third hand, I had A-K and a player slowplayed his pocket Aces. When the King hit on the flop I was too aggressive and did myself in.

The good news is that a couple of players have left positive reviews on "Tournament Poker: 101 Winning Moves."

One player said he cashed for the first time ever at the WSOP and credited my book for getting him past the bubble.

Another player said he was very skeptical that the moves in the book would work, but has not only cashed but won a lot of events.

I did get an email from a player who said he can't understand why the word hasn't gotten out on my book since he thinks its one of the best he's ever read. I told him it's because I don't have a bracelet...maybe next year.
