Got my $3.30 MTT ticket

Finally made it into the bubble and winning that ticket IN 9th place. I felt like I was playing battle ship with some trash hands I picked out, that I was testing & lost to no avail. Mainly because of the intimidation. Certain trash hands wound up being the nuts that I've folded. So I'll no doubt be reading some more about pot odds and EV. I like what I'm reading so far and it's a good read mind you. And not to mention those awesome video's on YouTube yaaaaa......

It was down to the last 10 players & I was last trying to take a stab at the pot every now and again to get mysefl away from the bottom - only to be hammered by bigger stacks, taking advantage and sure they raised against me with anything being as i was so attached to my lifeless stack. I found victory sometimes fortunantly with ''A's'' (can you believe it). Which are my enemy in the worst possible times but not today and other players  awesome bad bluffs towards me thanks guys for your contribution & thanks to a newbie 1 of 3 that were hard to shift - felt that urge to push all-in with any high card & decent kicker just to survive but busted. WAHOO
