A Psycho plays poker and talks about it

Hello people.

This is a really happy post as those of you who follow my progress might guess. I have been ducking (I'm a male duck, not a female canine) for quite some time now, how my free - rolling has affected my serious play and how I was unable to compensate and change gears when in a serious event.

Well, a couple of days ago I got a message from support informing me that a Big Bang ticket was issued to me. Thank you , Professor!

First thoughts were like: "Oh, well I have been issued tickets before but never made anything out of it." Or: "No big deal, I'll swim with the sharks again and I'll be lucky to last until the first break"

So rather pessimistically I registered and come last night 8pm local time I started what I thought would be a short adventure. Well, it wasn't. Unexpectedly, yours truly made it through a lot of breaks and received another mail from support:

PokerStars Tournament #684379963, No Limit Hold'em
406 players
$5000.00 USD added to the prize pool by PokerStars
Total Prize Pool: $5000.00 USD
Tournament started 2013/07/13 20:00:00 EET [2013/07/13 13:00:00 ET]

Dear PsychoVas,

You finished the tournament in 26th place. A USD 25.00 award has been credited to your Real Money account.


Thank you for participating.

So, I'm celebrating, gang, not only for the boost in my bankroll, which is a rather significant one, but more for being able to confront a really strong field and make it down to 3 tables.

Be happy for me, and

Good luck at the tables!!!

Tilt'em to your laps!!!
