After a lovely playing time of 3h 5m minutes I sit down at the first final table in ages…w00t.

On another note: sure enough I’m out in the 2nd hand :-(Â Too bad my AKo couldn’t win against the Chipleaders’ Q10o. Ah well…at least I’ve seen some final table action again…still sucks…moan 😉
Out in the 2nd hand


Well done getting to the final table, I’m sure you’ll be at the next one in no time.

Thanks! I hope to finally “climb the mountain top” soonish, a win would not only pad my roll, but also my confidence – it’s just plain and simple frustrating to play hours of good poker just to bust out just inside the money/the final table.

This time I just wasn’t in the position to really go deep at the final table (I barely made it past the bubble…doubled up, which was enough to make it to the final table after one player at my table caught fire to eliminate three players in a row (Full House followed by flopped quad tens, followed by a nut flush)…if I had won my final hand I would have been right in the thick of it with around 30k, but it wasn’t to be…on the bright side there’s always another chance 😉

Nice job getting there! I hit a couple of them the other day, and the closest I got was 21st. They’re fun, but it takes some work to get there. You did it before, you’ll do it again.
