1/2 on UB remains my Huckleberry

I am at it again on the 1/2 tables on UB. I entered them with much more confidence but it was shaken again. Back to .50/1.00. I know I will be back, but it is frustrating. True there are very few "fish" I have seen at this level, but I keep getting frustrating beats like set over set, suckouts, etc. After two losing sessions this evening, I decided to pony up 14 for a TEC SNG. Playing as a type this. Decided to have a little fun (like it used to be!!), hoping for the best. If DNasty or HighOnPoker make it to this game before their deadline, I think it will be anyone's game. The swings are much greater and the losses sting more. GL to both of you.

Update - My perfect record on UB SNGs is shattered!

TEC = Tournament Entry Chip. I can use it to enter a tournament with a $100 buy in. This is the first one I have won, need to find out if it is good for SNGs or just big tournies. DNasty won one (I think his wife did for him) and used it in a $25,000 Garaunteed. Not bad if I can parlay $14 into the money in tourney.
