comment The more advice I read - the worse I play. What am I doing wrong?
I did wonder if those early successes were my imagination but I tracked it on one of those ratings sites and I did seem to be improving steadily to a point. Something else that might be relevant is that I'm playing more Zoom games these days (if you fold, you get stuck immediately on another table with a fresh hand) so perhaps my original style only suits a static table (where image is important) rather then Zoom or tourneys. I know for a fact that my original approach sucked big time on the final table in tourneys and when playing head-to-head.

Many thanks for this. Very helpful. Re your last paragraph: I think this approach helped at the time as it made my style more difficult to read. If they always thought I had nuts, they'd fold but if they saw I played more marginal hands, that threw them off the scent a little. And of course, I'd sometimes hit an inside straight etc.

comment Is trash talking legal in WSOP?
I should think it is. Phil Hellmuth has made a career out of it (as well as being an exceptional player).

Hmmm, I'll have to try and clean up with 72o sometime...

comment Do you have favourite hole cards - and do these change over time
You make a good point. My thing with Q8o/s was that I got something like 3 inside straights in the same tourney once. I'm more inclined to play such favourite hands if I'm losing money. Don't know if this would qualify as "tilt" or where it is just momentary madness...
