Delicious. I love hands like that. Won some big money in a ring game off something very similar earlier. Congrats.

Am I missing something?

Great hand...but you said it took you from 5th to 1st. The chip count shows you already in the chip lead...was this at just one table of a multitable tournament? Just curious.

I think the chip count listed is how many each player has after that hand was played.

The pot was twice that amount...so it must be before the hand.

this probably is a MTT, and the 4 bigger stacks were on other tables...think about it - how did ~45000 chips make it to that table?
and the chipstacks always show stacks before the hand has been played :)
