First Place Win

By: jdwoody772 @ 02:56 (EDT) / 1 / Comment ( 0 )
This morning at about 11:00am I hit my first, first-place win in a tournament. It was in the 5+R Mega-Path Round 1 (Turbo). Now, for those of you who don't know this satellite tournament's rules, the game ends when there are 20 players left. Then, those top 20 finishers go on to Round 2. I was in the top 5 when the game hit 20 players, hence, a first place win. Unfortunately, I was beaten in the Round 2 tournament by a lucky hand. I had pocket Q's and the table read Q 5 3 5 8. I went all in on a full house and met my match with a player who had pocket 5's for a four-of-a-kind! Well, luck does have a part in this game, and I guess my opponent had a little bit more of it than I did. Oh well, I look forward to my next tournament finish. I look forward to seeing you all on the PSO Skill League leader boards! Have fun and good luck! -jdwoody772 "Gambit"
