I recently used up my 1,000 FPPs (a couple of months back) to rebuild my bankroll from scratch. Having built up around 500 more FPPs since then, I am occassionally playing the 10/20FPP buy in tourneys, and I had a go at one of the 10FPPs this morning.

Final hand was a real suck out - opponent had me crushed all in on the flop and I hit my runner runner outs.



Believe me that wasn't the first time I got it in bad and won - at least 3 times my KJ came good against Ax hands - but we all know that is often part of what it takes to get a first place in an MTT.

Dear EdinFreeMan,

You finished the tournament in 1st place. A USD 75.00 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

Congratulations!

Thank you for participating.

That is my biggest single tourney cash win to date - though I don't think it will show up on any of the statistics sites as it was a 10FPP buy-in.

Big thanks to all the trainers and fellow players here at PSO who have helped me improve my game - (though it still needs a lot of work!).

Cheers and good luck all

thanks all,

was just looking for my FT suck-outs!!

Was seated at the Ft in 4th of 9 - with an average stack - but was card dead so just watched a few small stacks bust out. I was getting pretty short and sitting 5th of 5 when I shoved my first KJ.



That gave me parity with all players bar the big stack - giving me a decent chance to continue on and take it down.

Seven hands later I look down at KJ again - and this time its soooted..



At 3 handed I get in to the big stack - who doesn't realise KJ is MY special hand - but it doesn't work for other players...



and I all but finished them off a few hands later, crippling them and taking a chip lead ready for heads up.





Ed

Thanks again for the support people.

I played another 10FPP tourney - and what cards did I get dealt first hand?





I did manage to go on to cash again - but minor

Dear EdinFreeMan,

You finished the tournament in 111th place. A USD 0.70 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

Good luck all

Thanks Bill

I should've mentioned another PSOer and Tanker HAPPYSAP was at one of my tables for a while - when we were down from 100 players to 50 odd - I think we avoided getting into pots against each other but there was a definite skill advantage that you see from PSOers in what are pretty much donkfest type tourneys.

I suppose the lesson is - that what you learn here can be used to improve your game and move up to higher stakes etc - but it also does give you a better chance even when you start versus 80% shovemonkeys.

good luck all

Ed

gratified by my big win - I had a bottle of Champers -

(Ok it was cider but its fizzy and has similar effects)

then was in Chewie's training session and got into a $0.02 madness game for fun - with KJernekar at my table and we ruled it.

I came 9th of 990 for $0.25

a whopping ROI there...
