So, my last $15 is dwindling away after a few bad beats and I have $2 and change left. I am thinking of reloading and therefore enter a MTT for $1. First hand, bust out with AK. Oh dear. I am not on tilt, just have a rye smile on my face.

So, with my last dollar, leaving 30 cents in my account I buy in for a turbo shorthanded tourny with top 80 paid and 980 entrants. It is ridiculous as the blinds shot up and I am soon down to about 3 BBs half way through. UTG, I pick up AA. Triple up. I survive until the bubble, when I steal a few big pots. Suddenly, I am in the race, and some more aggressive play really strengthens my stack. A few bad plays leave me shorter than I would like but on the BB I am getting the hands and suddenly I am at the final 5, and finish second.

I won $118 and it is my biggest cash so far in around 3 months of online play. Just when i thought I was dead, I survive. Very happy.:D

Now, BRM is top of my list to keep this run going.

A quote from Yogi Berra comes to mind:

"It ain't over 'til its over."

Great job. Let us hope you don't have to go back to playing micros anytime soon.

And you even followed the Ferguson BRM plan since he was allowed a $1 tournament at any time. THIS was the time.
