Thank you to the 14 people, after just 24 hours, that have taken the time to read my ramblings on my first post.It gave me a warm fuzzy feeling.Big ups to FurryWallz who was my first  feed back comment.

Just played  a PSO Tourny, have been hitting them as often as I can over the last week and find them most enjoyable with a decent level of play once the ALL IN CLOWNS have meet their just end which happens normally by about hand 25. Had a good run tonight sticking with  top 10% of the pack down to the last 1400 players (from a full field of 9000 or 10000) and then made my FIRST ALL IN CALL for the night and that was that.Please review the hand and comment.
