    Wow. That's awesome. And here I was feeling good about winning my neighbourhood 20 person tourney and taking home 200 bucks.

    Light years ahead of the competition.

    4th place out of 1700 on Pokerstars $2 Freezeout

    Cashed in around $200. Would like to thank everyone here for the great info and help. In my first week playing 5 + .50 Sit-n-Go's, out of 21 I've placed ITM 15 times including 5 wins, 4 seconds and 6 thirds. Very happy to be up over $300 my first week playing but I will not get overconfident. I'd like to especially thank the guys like Davsimon, Rada and Rippy for their how-to's, great stuff.

    Bought in at step 2. Well actually I had to buy in there twice. The first time I advanced to step 3 and promptly busted out in 10th on the first hand when I got JJ UTG and had a guy call my 250 raise with 45o (Flop came 876).

    So I bought back in and went throgh the steps something like this: 2-3-3-3-4-5. I had Rada over my shoulder for step 4 (My god it was fun punishing them like that), and had both Rada and Soupie (and a few others) helping out with the step 5. It's a little stressful having two people who's opinions you respect so much making opposite suggestions for the same play, but very cool none the less.

    From the reaction of the other folks at the table... it seems to be my maniacal style at the end that's working for me. Lots of aggression, lots of stealing... catching a couple hands. On the final table people were starting to get frustrated and would push all-in over top of me. That got me to fold a bunch... but eventually I would catch something and take them out, making all my money back and more.

    I won't lie... I've had a great amount of luck too. Overall though, reads and aggression have been working wonders. I'll try this one again on Wednesday....

    So i think im joining a 30 ra on Party, well it is only its limit. FRICK. So I play and decide im not adding on or rebuying so I put my 33 bucks in the pot as a gift to the masses. Well I say screw the masses and take 2nd place for a little over $2300. lol

    Yea thats right another fricken 2nd place, once again I have the guy dominated the guy AJ vs j6 and he wins. unreal i cant win, glad they pay 2nd.

    UB $5 freezeout - 331 players

    1st place, $413

    My first mtt win ever. First MTT I've played in a long time too. Decided to play while taking a break from NL ring. Worked out pretty well.

    13th in the 50,000 guaranteed re-buy/add-on at paradise.
    I didn't rebuy or addon and took home a little over $400.
    Frustratingly close to major moola tho. Grrr.

    Canada eh?
    Rats... my winning streak in the 5k guaranteed is over. 6th place for $315 isn't too bad though. My last 5 results in this tourny... 6th, 1st, 1st, 1st, 6th. I was big stack again at the final table last night, but a really dumb call left me crippled.

    2 WSOP qualifiers this weekend... I hope I'll be posting right after those!

    Just played my first ever mtt on Pokerroom at a $5/.5 and came in second for a good $268. I am pretty excited about that one.

    2nd out of 277
    $474.50 in a Ladbrokes $10+1 Freezout
    pwned.
    Had chip lead for most of the tourney. By 60 left had 10% of chips in play. Heads up lasted for about 40 mins. Had K/10, pushed on the flop of K9x, Villian calls all in, flips over K/4. Turn A, river A. Split. damn.
    After the break, lost concentration, tried to push him of his flopped nuts.
    3rd final table for me, definately the best I've played in an MTT.
