puts me at $135 ahead.... tourney took 35 minutes to play... 100 minus 22 is 78 divided by 35 minutes of play, is a pretty hefty bb/hour, aye?

i am too damn excited to play now...... take me half that long to lose it all... lol

Congrats!!! I've never played a tourney with that big of a buy-in - usually $5+1's or $10+1's, don't have that kind of bankroll.

Nice to see a big win with Aces.... every 10-man tourney I get into seems to bog way down when it gets to the last 2 or 3. Lots of blind-stealing and stuff like that, no real action, until both players finally get a hand and go to a show-down.

Oh - and usually when I've got a hand they fold, vice versa, ad infinitum.

Interesting that the two Aces this time were different than the two that put you out on the bubble last time. Congrats on the BB/hour ratio. Keep it up.

I wonder if that is some sort of bizarre message from the 'Poker Gods.

"Hearts and Spades fold, clubs and diamonds, bet/raise"

I coulda bought a nice Valentines day present with that money... key word, coulda...
