My First Big Win!

Woo Hoo!! Posted by Picasa

$3.30 + 5 Hours = $$$ Posted by Picasa

This was actually my third MTT of the night. I played a $3 one and a $1 and didn't make the money. It was only 8:30 and I thought I would play one more. Five hours and 1198 people later and I won my first large tourney. Needless to say, I was freakin' out.

Of course, no tournament winner can make it without a couple of suckouts. Here is one I really liked:

I knew the WWdN tournaments would help someone with their tournament game. Congrats.
