i have taken the courses, mainly in SNG as that is my favourite poker. i must be mad! i love the ups and downs of tournament play! Anyway, it has really helped my game immediately, i moved up a level as i felt the lower stakes mean quite loose players and it was tough to follow betting patterns etc. i came 2nd in a $3 buy a i owe this to the courses. hopefully it has ironed out the wrong moves and hopefully in the long run it will pay off! i will let you know! steviej1981
