I live in Illinois, land of no online poker, and not much live poker near me. That said, once upon a time, I played a lot of poker, mostly online, but some live tournaments.
When online poker evaporated, with a fair amount of my bankroll (some of which showed up eventually btw) I grieved, but moved on. My wife, bless her, encouraged me to keep checking up on efforts in Illinois to get online poker going again. One day while surfing info on that I saw an APT ad..... Sounded good. I checked it out and had an epiphany. I could study poker online. Then I discovered I could play LIVE tournaments against other APT members who played like REAL LIFE not free site donks!
I've played many APT tournaments since last November, experimented with styles, made some "anonymous" friends, got clobbered many times, won some hands and tournaments and had lot of fun.
I've learned a great deal observing my opposition in these events. People like Lisav, Publisher, aligning, PFAL, ThomPerry, 22tango, Alexfish, abers, jazzyone, DavidL, redryder, Hugo, mgmbob, papa, nabilgideon, ssserrbbb, Helenkeler and many others have ALL contributed to my resumed online poker game training. My sincere thanks to each of you. No hard feelings for the bad beats and justified beatings you gave me. I hope you've ALL learned from me as well.
If I could improve the APT live training environment I'd suggest several additions:
1) MORE multitable tournaments each day. Why not?
3) 6 max tournaments
4) H2H sitngoes
Just a few of my thoughts.
Love the new forum......
