1st live tourney cash in 3 years
Hey guys, so 3 years ago I stopped playing tournament poker and have been chasing the pipe dreams of large money in cash games. I mean granted I have never played in a tournament that cost more then $100 buy in anyways but thought I was a pretty good player so I moved to cash games only. Mostly 1/2 NL, 2/5 NL, 2/100 Spread, 6/12 Limit & 8/16 limit.
Regardless to say Ive gotten bored with playing live cash games Ive had my share of $1500-$2000 wins over the last 3 years in single sessions but always end up just playing a lot more then I should be.
Last Friday I went to a local casino with a friend to play some 2/60 spread...lol turns out they only had 7 tables in the room and all tha twas going as 2/10 spread and a $50 + $10 bounty tournament no rebuys with 31 entries so I played my 1st tournament in 3 years. I ended up finishing 3rd place (1 of the other 2 guys refused to chop of course). $186 and only got 1 bounty so it was $136 win
Total prize pool of $930 was distributed to the top 3...with the house taking a whopping $620. ($10 optional dealer not included). Now I remember why I quit playing poker tournaments, this is absolutely insane. Granted I had a lot of fun, but this just seems like a tournament that no one should ever enter and I just got extremely lucky.
