Just wanted to post and tell you that even tho I busted out 191st, I feel I played one of my personal best tourneys ever. I played a sound game and I am very pleased with that. My high chip count was 16K when I managed to win a hand with JJ. Most of the rest of the tourney, I was just floundering around 8-9K.

I tried to get the most out of the good hands...I had AA, KK, QQ and JJ. Also, 9-9 which I should have folded but called and the flop was very good for my hand, and I won that one. Played AK once, and AQ once. Well, twice. I busted with AQ. I was on the little blind with 8K or so, only the big blind left. I went all in, and he called with pocket tens. Flopped quads and I just watched the rest of the hand unfold

Even with the disappointment of busting before I wanted to, I feel good that I played my best. And perhaps that is what I need to remember when I am beating myself over the head somedays when I lose. Today, I am smiling because I played good!! Does that make sense??

It was a great tourney, thanks to those who cheered for me!

Great Job Jane.

I feel with you. I was upset when i busted out 227, but after thinking about it, i played my A game. I went for 18K to 3 K holding AA when i went allin preflop vs 99 and 99 hit set on flop.

then a few hands later i went alin with 99 when the same person had AA and of course, he won.

great job everyone i had a lot of fun.
