Okay, I didn't really win. But I won for myself! I've played like 10 MTTs (not counting 45/90man) ever and I decided to play a 1.10 for some reason. I'm glad I did. I ran deep, finished third out of 2601 players for $218.48 and tripled my bankroll. The last hand was a flip worth over $100 (not often I get to say that as a micro player) and a shot at the win for $411.87. Also, thanks to JWK24 and bearxing for the moral support through the tournament!

Congratulations!!! It was great to watch a fellow micro stakes player make a deep run into the final table. Good comeback from being short stacked at the bubble. Another good comeback from being the short stack when you got to the final table. Great tournament

Let's do it again!!!

Great job Fesk!

When you get short-handed, especially with lower stacks, you want to be taking flips and to win a tourney, you'll need to win a number of them.

I played that tourney a couple of times before black friday.... you made it a couple hours farther than the best run I had in it.

Keep up the good work.

Absolutely, I'd take that flip any day of the week. It's just unfortunate that I actually ran into a hand, so this move is +EV nonetheless.

And again, thank you all!
