Has anyone here ever nailed any big poker tournaments? If yes what was it? And what is the feeling at the moment?
If you mean big tournament measured by numbers, then I have to say you will hardly find people who did. I personally know some online grinders who haven't won a single MTT online (which is understandable given the number of players exceed couple of thousands) but are still quite profitable overall.
As for me, I have won two live tournaments, and I was super excited about it but it was a small field of players (30 first one, and I believe 40+ the second one)
I finished second in the tournament where there were 45 people and the ticket cost $ 0.25. It was amazing despite the fact that I had to take 4th place because I had a small bank, but I knocked out two big banks and lost to the Brazilian.
The feeling is crazy, you do not know whether to believe it at the time, the adrenaline consumes you after having played 15 hours and take you a prize that changes your life, I change it and it was great, first time I played it and I I won, I talk about the sunday million on January 29, 2012, it hurts that there is nothing left of that hahahaha
