Won My First Sit & Go!

I have been playing Double or Nothing. But tonight halfway mugging my books I felt like playing one tourney so I went into micro-stakes of Sit & Go - my very first try. I wasn't expecting I would win, I mean I hoped I did but my target was just top 3. Wasn't leading at all. TruckerAA was leading all the way. I had folded most of my cards only managed to grab 1 or 2 pots once in a while until a major turn of tide came below:

Was KK vs JJ all-in. You can imagine how I felt when the flop came. I was just numbed, didnt react. So the turn K came and saved my night. You can imagine how screw he felt but that's poker. Was at top 3 later and I eliminated number 3 with 99 vs JQ. TruckerAA still in the lead.

I was heads-up with him for quite awhile. We were on par until he was leading 10K chips vs 2K chips. Managed to play tight, I think it was because of my tight table image so he folded most of my raises and thats how I grew my stacks for a comeback. I was too happy so didn't managed to print my last hand but I requested so here you go:

Some crazy occurrences =) but some nice moves as well. You're ability to take a solid gamble will pay off especially when there are plenty of people who won't even require you to see a showdown. They'll just fold to your aggressiveness.

For the others, you'll take your chances and come out on top more than enough (you'll never win 100% of tournaments, but I'm guessing you know that).

Congratz (:

Thanks Anon! u're right, we cant win 100% of the tournament because there are a lot of factors to consider. If that "K" didnt appear in the turn the result would have been very different!

I tried to be more aggressive for that tourney because things are going my way. a lot of time it doesnt and I will fold and become a lot passive.

Anyway its great to hear from you and thanks for the advices!
