A couple days ago I got down to 100 chips with 5 people left in a turbo tourney. Blinds were 100/200 25 ante. I was in the blind next hand with 7 4 off. Quadrupled up with trip 4s that I caught on the river. Next hand I go all in with 89s and double up against AQ. So now Im at around 1100 chips and I am ok, but not great. Next hand, Pocket Aces and I go all in again, praying someone will think that I am just doing it every hand and call me. Well I get 2 callers and triple up and end up winning the tournament. I was amazed at how lucky I got.

I've been down to as little as 19 chips and come back to take 1st in a SNG. I've also come back from less than 100 chips on several occassions. Most of these were playing at Paradise....sigh...God I miss that site...:bawling:

My best one was playing live at my local casino here in australia, in a $300 buy in tourney. I took a huge hit when my AA against KK lost, when he hit his trips on the turn. I was down to a single 100 dollar chip. We were about halfway in, the blinds were 400/600. So you can see i had one fourth of the small blind! I was ready to go home. 22 on the next hand, all in, hit trips, and with 6 callers, it wasnt bad. Anyways, the same sort of thing kept happening, and by the time we were down to two tables i was the second largest stack! I ended up taking 2nd in that tourney, netting me a nice comfy $16000. I have never had a comeback like that, nor will i ever again, i really doubt. It was good for my BR too!

That`s interesting, JQ. I have heard at least one of the other American members say how much they miss Paradise.

Why Paradise especially ? I have an account there still (being in the UK) containing a few dollars they gave me as a sweetener, but I`ve never bothered to deposit and play there properly, because I didn`t see anything very special about it.


To answer the main question, I have had two large tournies where I final-tabled after having been busted down to almost no chips early on. Those were my happiest achievements.

coming from the brink of death makes you want it bad, for bragging rights especially.

Mine was just last week at DesertLady's birthday celebration tournament. I over-played A9 against the full house folder (Brutus :p) on the second hand of the tournament and gave away all but $20 with the blinds at 10/20 and my big blind coming up. I stuck it out to the nearly the end though. At one point, when finally down to four players, I was the chip leader by 1.75 times the 2nd place stack. Wound up in third overall when every short stack push kept resulting in a win for a while and no one would go away. It was definitely my best chip and a chair comeback.

I've had several I could post about, but right now I'm in a 2.00 triple shootout. In the first level I got busted down to 90 chips, 3 players left. One guy with 6k, the other with 1200.

Somehow I managed to come back and win the first level knocking both of them out. :D

Waiting now for the 2nd level ...:D

Paradise has fantastic graphics. Their sng's are great and you see a lot of the same people over and over. It was a great place to make friends and easy to find them to play with. You could even see who was sitting at which table in the room lobbies of sng's.

I have never found another site to compare. The Canadians and UK players I used to play with still play there - even though the player numbers are so low.

Very sad. :(

Maybe a comeback in progress.

My normal operating procedure is to deposit 50 on my accounts and play 1 to 5 dollar MTT's usually making the cash and slowly build bankroll. Of all my accounts PS, FT, AP and UB the pokerstars account is the most volatile because on Sunday mornings I absolutely love playing the 2.00 triple shootouts.

After a bad run last night in a couple of 5 dollar tourneys I got into a 15 and busted out as well. I had 24 bucks on account this morning which if it wasn't Sunday I would just 1 and 2 dollar MTT to build it back up.

I played a couple of 4.00 SnG's this morning and a bunch of 2.00 shoot outs and lost them all until I had 1.38 left on my account. Went into a 1/2 cent NL and won 2.42 then quit and got into the last 2.00 triple shootout of the morning.

I WON, I WON, I WON!:cool:

So now I've got 22 cents in my PS account and the big game starts in 2 hours. LOL :D Yeah I'm playing! if I don't make the cash, I'll just make another deposit ... I feel good though ... maybe ... just maybe today is my day. :cool: We'll see. hehhehhhehhhehhheh w00T!
