re: Poker & 3AM just finished Paradise tourny
Congrats on the excellent finish! Sorry you didn't make the money, though, especially the way you were beaten. Ah well, poor luck on that one.
I crapped out at 2929 in the first Paradise tourney and had to miss the other two because I decided I'd rather spend New Year's Eve in the hospital emergency room (ahem). Did alright in the earlier Royal Vegas
freeroll but didn't make the money -- went out 63 of 2500 and only 50 cashed. Like you, I could have been more conservative toward the end and shown a small profit, but that's water under the bridge.
Happy new year everyone!
