Adventures of a Reluctant Gambler


Hit My First Good Cash

By: HurtToSit @ 07:32 (EST) / 387 / Comment ( 6 )

Played the $2.20 Tourney today and 7 1/2 hours later I came in 4th.  Prize was $575.  I had to toot my own horn.  Funny thing was, I had to call in late to work by an hour.  I ended up leaving the tourney as soon as I entered into the final table with the chip lead and my wife took control.  She knows nothing about cards.  She was asking me if a "9 Flower" and a "4 Kite" was good.  Before you think she's retarded, know that she is Italian and English a second language.  Somehow she managed to take 4th.  I did have the chip lead going onto final table although.  Wish it was first but I never went that deep into a huge non turbo tournament.  From now on I won't be starting a tournament unless I have a solid 9 hours.  I wonder how long anyone else has played in a tournament before?  Anyhow congrats me.  Thank the PSO for my game improvement.8-O
