Yes that's correct to the tune of $1538.97 at 00:34 hrs Dec 8th 2011. We were all in pre flop and I had KQ off vs JJ. Needed to get lucky and I sure did. Flop was 9T high and as I was wishing so badly for a K or a Q.....a beautiful J hits the board on turn and no re-suck on the river to pair the board. YEEEEE HAAAAAA I must say that this was probably one of the best tourney's I have played skill wise in a very very long time. Had fallen into too many bad habits in the last few years and hopefully this is the start of me climbing my way back to playing a more skillfull game.
However luck definitely had a part. As in when late in the tourney with 25-35 players left I was dealt the proverbial nirvana of back to back AA hands and played them to perfection to double up from just over 1 Million to well over 4 million in chips. :-)

And YES I won this without making any rebuys or add ons. I forgot to. lol I always add-on when I play the $20K and $30K 3X turbos for $1 and 30K in chips but I was distracted this time and didn't. I also hate rebuying. I figure if my luck was bad once, it probably won't get any better and I just leave the tourney usually.

What was also super cool was that the top 3 finishers were CANADIANS and 4 of the top 5 as well.
GO CANADA. Our home and native land. :-)

My bankroll had fluctuated between $450 and down to below $250 recently in the last year after I finished 7th in my 1st ever month at PSO December 2010 for $200. I had been in 1st going into the last day but I was double donked real bad in the 2 tourneys I played that day. The last 2 months have been brutal though as they were the 1st months I had not cashed for something in PSO. So far so good this month but I didn't get to 150 vpp's. Finished 2nd in my 1st tourney this month. Should have been 1st but I got frisky with A5 off All In pre flop against K9. He flopped TJQ lol.

Hopefully this will be the start of better things to come for my poker hobby that has now netted me a total profit of $102,782.51 since I started playing March of 2003. I've never really moved up because I still have far too many holes in my game. $75,219.00 of that profit is from a bad beat jackpot I won at Party Poker June 15th 2010 at 15:34 hrs. AJ off limped from 3rd pos at .50/1.00 limit table. Raise from mid pos, smooth call from late pos. Flop KJ9 K9 diamonds. I check, raiser bets, smooth caller calls. J hearts turn I check, mid pos checks, smooth caller bets, I check raise, he calls. J diamonds river, we cap it. Sure enough he had QT diamonds. :-) If he had raised his flopped straight,I fold. Or had he never called a raise cold with that questionable QT suited hand, I never see a penny of that $75K and he doesn't get $37.5K.

PS If I knew how to add the screenshot of the tourney results here with the .PNG file I took I would.

Why dont you say what you really want to say here?

Your going to lose a ton of cred if your going to come at people funny style and make runabout
accusations. If that is not what your doing then you really need to work on your communicating skills.

Congrats Expo..Dont spend it all in one place.
