Congratulations!
Thank you for participating.


I am really upset about 2nd place. I absolutely outplayed the guy headsup. I flopped two pair 5s and 10s and he went all in with Q10 and I had a good lead on him.. next hand I get AK and he is all in. I call and he shows A6. Ace on the flop and six on the river. That was whack. He then kept just going all in and next ace I picked up A10s and I was all in and he showed AQ. He was an absolute dick then when I shoved (blinds too high) with 93 and he uses his whole 1:30 timer and calls to show AA. I felt like I had 1,200$ stolen from me.

But great job anyway - forget 1st lol. That is a very nice win! I know it hurts to get so close to so much more though, especially when you know you played well.

I feel your pain. I have gotten a couple 2nd's (lower than yours), and always feel like I have failed even when I know there is a lot of luck involved in heads up play. Takes a couple days, but you will feel better about the money you made.

Very nice finish. Congrats.

I hate when they slow roll hands. It frustrates the hell out of me. I was on the bubble of an MTT and I push with I think 7,10 on the button with less than 10x the BB. SB folds and BB uses his time bank, calls time, then finally calls...and shows AA.

WTF are you waiting for, ya jerk?

LOL.
