Had to get the chips in pre-flop here - already ITM but getting short.



and shortly after that last ditch survival hand



Wish me luck! Still in - results to follow.

Cheers guys -

got done over by the opp in this hand - watch the cheeky one-card show



Managed to get some back with a couple of big shoves - maybe a bit too aggressive but I couldn't work out any other decent reraise size!



and just 2 hands later - it looks like I palmed the cards off the table...



running around 110/200 from over 4k starters - blinds about to hit 1k/2k so on over 20BB.

More info to follow.

Oops. Made a big error - spewed half my stack - but still on for my highest MTT cash prize to date.

Gotta get some chips back!

OK - so here's the story.

I was playing FPP buy-in satellite tourneys, and some cheap cash buy-in satellites to the Sunday Storm and some of the 'Daily Bigs', trying to build some T-Money. Running pretty badly most of the time - every time I got it in good I lost. But eventually it turned around a bit.

PokerStars Tournament #572976081, No Limit Hold'em Super Satellite
Buy-In: $0.80/$0.08 USD
123 players
Total Prize Pool: $98.40 USD Target Tournament #577011335 Buy-In: $8.80 USD
11 tickets to the target tournament
Tournament started 2012/06/15 14:43:00 WET [2012/06/15 9:43:00 ET]

Dear EdinFreeMan,

You finished the tournament in 1st place. You qualified to play in Tournament #577011335 and are automatically registered for it. See Tournament #577011335 Lobby for further details.

If you choose to unregister from this tournament YOU ARE BANG OUT OF LUCK - BECAUSE IT STARTED 3 MINUTES AGO!

Hey ho, methinks I am playing The Big $8.80 - slightly above my usual BR level.

Still - it only cost me $0.88 to get in....

PokerStars Tournament #577011335, No Limit Hold'em
Buy-In: $8.00/$0.80 USD
4202 players
Total Prize Pool: $33616.00 USD
Tournament started 2012/06/15 16:00:00 WET [2012/06/15 11:00:00 ET]

Dear EdinFreeMan,

You finished the tournament in 151st place. A USD 33.61 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

Congratulations! Thank you for participating.

$0.88 into $33.61 - not too shabby. Wish I had kept it going for longer but it was not to be.



Good luck all

Ed from Edinburgh - EdinFreeMan

Great result Ed!

That's the way to build a bankroll quickly. Satty into a tourney above your bankroll, then cash in it. Great job and keep it up.

Well done Ed! Turbing $0.88c into over $30 is a remarkable investment, keep up the good work

Well done Ed, quite a nice run and you could just as well have run even deeper!
