I was playing the final table of one of the warm up freerolls today. It was down to the final 7 and both I and pfb8888 were very short stacked, and he'd already survived one all in showdown. He suggested that whichever of us busted on the bubble give the other a dollar. I don't actually have any money in my account anymore so I couldn't take up the offer. As it happened, I went out in 7th and he sent me the dollar anyway. I was obviously gutted to miss out on the ticket, but it was a nice gesture, and one that he had no obligation to make.

If only all poker players were as friendly!

....I guess it's just not my day.

You know the astronomer freerolls?

Well I've been playing in a few today, including the 2-7 single draw one that started over 6 hours ago with 7000 players. The tickets were for the top 56 players and I just got knocked out in 60th with a 9-low by a better 9-low. I don't really know what to say anymore.

EDIT: They say every cloud has a silver lining. Well I spent that dollar from pfb on 4 $0.25 90 man SNGs. I won nothing in the first 3, but came 2nd with my last $0.25 to win $4.16. Interestingly, that's actually more than the worth of the ticket I didn't win!
