... had a good week and I thought I would treat myself. A night off from grinding, forget the bankroll for a night and just enjoy myself....

I usually grind $1-$11 MTT and SNG MTTs

So just played:-

$1 Rebuy - cashed
$3 Rebuy - cashed
$5 MTT - hopeless
$10 MTT - AA cracked
$24 MTT - QQ v QQ v KK (unusual hand..lol)
and FTOPS #37 $200 + 16

6500 start and somehow with 600 left I am in the top 100 when I get AK on the button.....
