    After tearing up SnGs for about 3 weeks now, I played my first MTT in months and made my first ever final table.

    Site: Absolute
    Buy-in: $5+$1
    Number Entrants: 134
    Place: 3rd
    Winnings: $79

    It was survival poker all the way as I seemed to never have more than 10x bb with mountains of chips in the seats to my left.

    Mike got 3rd in the 10 R&a last night for something like 4k.

    I fted the sandbar on pearl 25$ buy in 276 people and got tenth. Chip leader was a maniac and was getting suckout after suckout, and called my alll in with crap and hit so I was gone. I think the prize was like 76 dollars lol, sucked for all that worked and good play I put in.
    fighting over blinds makes me feel like I'm black

    I said hell I have nothing to lose and I pushed like 10 steals in a row. Then pushed 66 got called by AK flop 667. Then I looked at my stack and voola I was chip leader. Then just leaned on everyone else.

    just took 3rd of 269 in $25 freezeout on paradise for $673 payout. was short stacked and went all-in with A3off, Q6s monster stack called, rivered his K high rivered his K high straight, would have had a decent stack if i could have avoided the river and probably had a good shot at winning because this huge stack was a complete idiot who kept getting hand after hand after hand at the final table and was fish and limped with all sorts of K7off, etc. oh well, 3rd isn't bad, still looking for that first top 2, and preferably first win.

    Congrats mike

    maybe we should start a $ earned league just for competition purposes, I'm sure to be near the bottom but it sure would make things interesting

    3rd and £1,120 in what I believe was the same £14K GTD which Pingviini won, if I remember rightly he knocked me out with AK v K10 on a K high flop. GG.

    TanO, you should have been in irc when you were deep in that, could have been funny with you and ping battling it out.

    I think I might be the only person here who actually plays limit tourneys. Blind stealing and position raises learned here at FTR proved crucial to winning this.

    How long did that take Lonnie? Wondering if it takes longer to play a limit tourny.

    How long did that take Lonnie? Wondering if it takes longer to play a limit tourny.
    Took 3.5 hours. Once the blinds get up there, it becomes a blind stealing contest just like NL tourneys do.

    I didnt win anything last night or anything in the last several weeks, but I thought I would post in this forum because I know I am going to win something very big in the near future and wanted to practice my posting. THAT IS ALL! TY
