well today got back all the points i had lost on the 17th plus ten  on  the 17th i played like crap and got too aggresive too early today i was pataint and waited for good hands and good spots. i think the best way to have good finishes in these eveents is to be VERY  PATIENT  and not get to involved early on and avoid calling all in's with marginal hands ,it 's a bit shocking to see how many people snap call all in's with qj and ace ten  and jack ten .good luck to everyone the rest of the month.
