My best Pokerstars experience

By: cocoshPinten @ 04:58 (EST) / 772 / Comment ( 0 )

My best POKERSTARS experience up to date are 2 experiences. One is dated in 2011 when i was coming back from work extremly tired after a long day. I was planning to go out but nbecouse i was very tired i decided to stay home and i open 2 tournaments on PokerStars. One of the tournaments was a regular 11$ tournament, the other one is not important. I didnt had until that tournament very good results, just couple of hundreds won. My girl friend came home after one hour, i was playing and also speaking with her, watching tv, basically i was not ready for the experience that was coming. After 3 hours i was ITM, at an average stack, i have started to be more focus on the tournament, i was planning to go up as much as i can up to maybe first 30-40 people. The hours were passing and i was down to 50, from there i was so excited, my heart was pummping blood like crazy at every hand i was involved in, i had couple of flips, i have won one of them with AK vs QQ with a beautiful A on river. I was screaming like a mad man and dansing in front of my girlfriend. At final table it was even more dramatic, every hour passing for the 5 minutes i had as a break, i was going to take a shower becouse the tennsion was too much for me and i was sweating like crazy. Me and my girlfriend were looking to the TV when other 2 players were in a flip hopping for the short stack to get busted. If that was happening, we were screaming and dansing in front of the TV. Too bad i didnt recorded this, i assure you it was very funny. Finnaly i`ve end up on the 3th place for 1600$ and couple of month after i have end up also on 4th place for another 1500$. I will always remember my happiness on that day, at every hand won, at the final table when somebody was busted and i was checking again the prizes.

The second best experience was couple of months ago. I am part of a PokerStars sponsored forum called . Every year there is a league where the best romanian players are playing for very good prizes, this time first 15 were winning prizes and first 10 were going t6o play a final table with 1st place winning a EPT Prague package woth 5500euro. There were 7 tournaments, getting points for the place you finnish. In the end after a long battle i have mannage to qualify to the final table were a was facing most of the best romanian online poker players. Having in mind that i consider my self just a recreational player, qualifing for this final table was more than a surprize for me. The result is not important, i end up 4th, the player who won 1st place is a very well known romanian player who end up couple of weeks ago chopping 3 way pot a sunday million.

I hope this is just the begining of my journey and that i will have in the near future as many good experiences as this first two.
