Dear 2edgar,

You finished the tournament in 1st place. A USD 12.73 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

i am stoked, I am still negative on my profit since I started, but my ROI is down -49, better than my -70ish from a week ago.

my goal is to play 2 sit and go tournemanets at 1 dollar to 3.50 limits, I want to achieve 100 in the money games by the end of october so I get my S&G tournament rankings at mercury level.

I was very lucky today, I was saved on the river 5x, made some stupid mistakes when i know i shouldnt call, and i made some all in plays when i knew i should have slow played.

I was happy I won the hand I was on, but technically I should have folded against my opponents all in, despite the fact I was 2 to 1 chip lead.

he had 44, and i had 6 8 suited, i won with a pair of 8 on the river.
