I won the $25k Guaranteed on Full Tilt!

TOURNAMENTWIN.jpg


I'm so ecstatic right now :D. My first tourney win ever! I've been having really rotten luck in tournaments but everything finally clicked. No bad luck and even some very good luck thrown in! I was big time shortstack at the final table, happy with my appearance and looking forward to the couple hundred I'd win, but time went by, I never got knocked out, and I somehow ended up with all the chips!

Whewwwwwww. I don't know if I'm going to be able to sleep tonight :D As a job-less college student, this kind of money is a huge deal to me!

Thank you everyone on Cardschat. I've learned a lot on here, and it surely contributed to my victory.

VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY nice job combu :)

5 ****ing grand. Congrats dude; well deserved - we all know how your luck has been lately, and you more than deserve this win.

So what you gonna blow the winnings on?

EDIT: I'm sure others would love to see a HH on the tourney. Just to see how it all went down. :)

Very nice job, m8. :party:

Forget what Chuck says - don`t you dare blow the winnings. I suggest you put at least a couple of Gs away in a nice high-interest account and keep it for a rainy day. If you`re a jobless student, who knows when you`ll ever have so much spare cash again ?

Wow! That's amazing, well done. I remember my times as a student and that money would be a massive bonus. Would be massive bonus at any time!

Congrats again.

Wow, nice result congrats. These $24 tourneys on FT are fantastic, soft as hell, but still great money if you final table them. Have a step back from the tables for a few days and evaluate where to go from here :)

That is so cool - very happy for you. Great job on final table - that took some patience and smarts.

Leave yourself some decent bankroll since it is so hard to get money in now, take the rest out and use it wisely so you can focus on school with fewer money issues.

When I was reading the title, I swear all I was hearing was "Herbal Essence" commercials, thinking it was related to shampoos that give women well, whatever u want to imagine. Only saw the yes's, lol, sorry, a bit tired right now, very late here.

Anyways, very nice win!!

Awesome win there. Take some cash and splurge. Take some more and bankroll a few sites. Pay bills and put that last thousand away. Here's to many more!

Great job man! Excellent! Hopefully that will bring some luck to the rest of us here!

In my experiences, these things come in waves so hopefully you have a long ride with this wave and get a few more of these.

Great Win!
