      I played the $250 freeroll on Party today 'cuz I was bored.
      40 hands in I was at a table with only one other player -- all the others having given up.
      I got KK and took out the other human, leaving me w/ a 20K stack.
      For the next 140 hands, I just hit the raise button and took the blinds.
      Talk about boring!

      I thought I was toast on this hand:
      Party, 20,000/40,000 blinds, 1,000 ante No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 9 Players

      BTN: 288,822 (7.2 bb)
      MP2: 122,898 (3.1 bb)
      Hero (UTG+2): 257,058 (6.4 bb)
      UTG+1: 694,272 (17.4 bb)
      MP1: 338,817 (8.5 bb)
      MP3: 222,624 (5.6 bb)
      UTG: 650,123 (16.3 bb)
      BB: 1,004,794 (25.1 bb)
      CO: 181,787 (4.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with A K
      UTG calls 40,000, UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to 256,058 and is all-in, 6 folds, UTG calls 216,058

      Flop: (561,116) T Q 3 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: (561,116) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: (561,116) 8 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results: 561,116 pot
      Final Board: T Q 3 6 8
      Hero showed A K and won 561,116 (304,058 net)
      UTG showed Q A and lost (-257,058 net)

      But it set me up for a good run to the end.
      Finished 46th out of 10371 original entrants.

      I have finished higher in the daily PS freerolls, but this is the highest I've got in such a large player pool.
