Ok this is how it went down. I was at a 5/1 SnG , Started at the button and raised with all folding giving me 1110 chips. Next hand got AA and one person went all in so I called( I normally dont do this early in a SnG even
with AA but went ahead and gambled). He beat me with a straight leaving me with 110 in chips and feeling, well u know!! Anyhow at this point I was
convincing myself that I can still make it to the final 3 but really just hoping to hit the right cards at the right time. Also, I was lucky enough to be on a fairly loose table so I just waited for the right time to call. Lucky enough this came as I was on the button holding the AKs with 4 people limped in. So I went all in with my 110 chips and 3 people to call. I hit
2 pair taking 320. Blinds at this point were still 20/10 so i just waited until I got a top hand and went all in again, hitting it with 2 callers taking in 960. Anyways you can see where im going with this. As i said the table was loose and by the time the blinds changed to 40/20 there were only 5 players left including myself. Going forward a little bit I ended up heads up
with the guy who beat me when I called him with my AA earlier.This made it even more sweet. Funny thing is I took him out with a AA !!! This made it even sweeter.

I figured i would share this with you guys because I feel real good about this win.Just sweet sweet revenge is sometimes the best medicine.

Appreciate it. This is why i love this game. Its not the money i may win.
To me its more like a chess match, I dont consider holdem gambling.
Of course I know it is gambling but you know what I mean. Strategies,
and trying to out maneuver your opponent. Thats where its at...BAD BEATS ASIDE...LOL

Good job on coming back in the tourney. I have had to climb back from similar situations, and it is the greatest feeling you will get as a player to know that you didn't tilt on a bad hand and that you stayed focused enough to play solid poker and beat your opponents.

"Next hand got AA and one person went all in so I called( I normally dont do this early in a SnG even

Say what? You normally would not call an all-in early in an SnG when you have AA? "Gambled"? Whaat?

Congratulations Chadford! Way to work with the little chips you had. I've made a similar comeback at a real money table with like .20 cents and turned it into 20 dollars with .5/.1 cent blinds. Well anyways nice job.
