Buy-In: $0.09/$0.01 USD
360 players
Total Prize Pool: $32.40 USD
Tournament started 2012/03/02 14:24:23 WET [2012/03/02 9:24:23 ET]
Dear EdinFreeMan,

You finished the tournament in 12th place. A USD 0.51 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

No - Tournament# - Buy-in - Prize - Profit
1) T525815783 - $0.10 - $0.51 - $0.41

that's 100% ITM and 410% ROI!!!

(If only my long-term stats looked that good....)

Could have done even better - but I ran into a cooler trying to climb up to the FT.

Exit Hand


Still - always nice to be ahead after the first game.

Good luck all

No - Tournament# - Place - Prize - Profit - Cum. Profit
1) T525815783 - 12/360 - $0.51 - $0.41 - $0.41
2) T525863036 - 37/ 360 -$0.00 - $0.00 - $0.31

Damn bubble!!!

made a very rare lay down on the bubble to leave myself 3 dollars in chips



I was hoping someone would bust that hand or I would get very lucky next hand and survive - but not to be.

I had started pretty well but took a bit of a solid beating here



Some of these players you just don't know if they are much worse or much better than you...

Good luck all

Early exit here - so my stats have nosedived - ROI now down to 70%



fairly standard exit - I got it in good but you don't win them all

Good luck

Well - thanks for the confidence - and sorry to disappoint you - just had my second cash but only 16th place for $0.35.

Exit hand I thought was a reasonable shove - even though it was a bit raggy - once I got more than one call I knew I was toast without a suckout low straight or similar.



No - Tournament# - Place - Prize - Profit - Cum. Profit

4) T525962342 - 106/360 - $0.00- $0.00 - $0.11
5) T526353267 - 016/360 - $0.35 - $0.25 - $0.36

given the variance in these I'm quite happy so far - but m.bisland is right - need to get to the top table and a top 3 finish to really boost the ROI.

Good luck all

Exit hand fairly standard - but my AK short stack shove was duplicated in a 3 way pot.
