      Just got my biggest reward:

      PokerStars Tournament #328010343, No Limit Hold'em
      Buy-In: $1.00/$0.10 USD
      6340 players
      Total Prize Pool: $6340.00 USD
      Tournament started 2010/09/01 18:00:00 EET [2010/09/01 11:00:00 ET]


      Dear Edzus89,

      You finished the tournament in 5th place. A USD 266.28 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

      But it could be even better - 4th :( Because there were one sitouter... I had a little lead of him, but I realized that I cant fight with big guys, so I just tried to w8 for him to go. I got AK and had 2x more chips than sitouter, so I made raise. You know.. Maybe I have a chance. So I didnt hit.. Dude check. And I made one stupid counti bet... which made me 1bb shorter than sitouter. Obvious he raised and I folded.
      ohh well, for this mistake I paid 80$. I think Ill remember it well :|

      Heh very nice win. Quite a boost to your bankroll i imagine. I remember when i played my first tournament just after i started playing and had about 80$ in my roll at the time. It was a 5$ tournament with about 1k ppl and i've got 8th for 350$. That was so sweet that i could skip NL2 and NL5 :)

      Sadly that was the only final table i ever made, even tho i rarely play MTTs because i dont like playing for 10 hours at a time.

      And you can never be to sad to get it in with AK. You can just ship it preflop if you cant play it postflop.

      Nice one sufix... good luck with future tournies.

      (Btw... I finally got a 1st place at the end of the month, after analyzing all my 2nd and 3rd place finishes.)

      v nice. I just took down a $5 MTT about 4 days ago for $200ish

      I reccomend playing the $2,$3, and $5 if you have around $350 bankroll and are confident in your shallowstack game ( eg 5bbs at 400/800 etc)

      good luck :s_cool:
