(Better than equal cashes shown in bold)


Buyins : $23.10

Cashes : $20.77

Profit : -$2.33


The closest games I had were the 18th and 81st finish. The 515th was close (since it was such a large field) but the other two had the chance of making me a lot.

There was even a $3 pay jump for 17th in the other one and the Final Table was glorious with a 9th place of around $25 and grand prize was a good $200 or so if I remember rightly.

Went out of the better one with QQ vs pocket Aces. Straight up Cooler and nothing I can do. Sadly, I played the last 2-3 hours of the game (at least) in the 10-20BB zone, won no idea how many flips or shove spots so was lucky by all accounts.


Played in a couple of other not MTT games, but not many and my bankroll right now is $139.95 so a little better than when I went in, MTTs not withstanding.


Starting at 67/100 of my 45-man $1 games again next week, MTTs are out of the schedule during a working week.

Hopefully my MTT sessions have given me a little more stamina (i do find that they have before) in the 45-man games so I can keep playing a good tight and "reach the FT" style game.
