    Any tips for a new player?

    I have been playing poker for 5 days now and I get to play in the 100k first deposit tourney and the free roll tournament tomorrow. Are there any good articles with poker strategy I should read beforehand or any good tips anyone can give me? Thanks in advance for any help.

    I'd say above anything else, PATIENCE is key. Wait for good hands. Don't play bad hands out of position because you are bored. King Jack offsuit is NOT a good starting hand

    So I got 3774'th place, I think I did pretty good for my first real tournament was in the top %5 and got like 15 hands in a row with nothing, oh well there is always next time

    is that pretty good for my first tourney? or should I have done better?

    If its like 4000 players i'd say not very good, but 10,000 players good job :P so its hard to say

    Dude that's not bad at all. If you stay within your range of hands you will do alright. Patience is key
    "And Shepherds we shall be. For thee, my Lord, for thee.
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand. Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
    In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti."

    Dont play crappy hands. Stick to pocket pairs and AK AQ AJ preferablly suited. And definitely fold when you know your beat.
