I've been in a major slump for about a month and this was just a small tourney with only 52 entries but it sure helped to re-build my self esteem. I enjoyed myself for the first time in quite a while:
I also feel the play is getting better at most all sites. It seems to me more and more players are learning a bit more about the game in one way or another. I know IP used to be a mad-house but it has settled down considerably and these guys played really well for the most part.
Anyhow, good luck players!
