Yea!!! I won something

So far I've played 88 multi's this month and have had a bunch of final tables (10 total), only to have bad luck and finishes ((4)10th's, 8th, 7th, and (4)6th's) Last night I was cruising along in the $50 TURBO Rebuy which has had some big prize pools lately in excess of $100,000 and there was only a couple tables left and some guy shoves a big stack with A10 and I called with JJ. Statistically I should win this 2 out of 3 times, but hits his Ace and I out again getting only a couple hundred bucks....sigh. I left mumbling the standard poker player lines of "if I woulda won that hand I woulda been chip leader going into final table...blah,blah,blah"

Anyways, I collected myself once again and looked to finish out the night with my last tournament still running. I bought into the standard $50 rebuy 1+1 using Full Tilt's new multiple buyin feature. It was my last of 3 buyins and I had a decent stack. I plugged along eventually found my way to another final table with a decent stack. I was somewhat aggressive and I think I busted almost everybody out until my 2 opponents got allin and left me heads up. 1st place paid about $9500 and 2nd paid $5900. I had about a 3-2 chip lead on my opponent who was a pretty good/solid player and we battled a bit back and forth and eventually I decided to make a deal to take 1st for $7900 rather than risk a lucky heads-up match and losing a couple hands over $3600 difference. I usually wouldn't make a deal but it was about 2am, my opponent was decent, and there was too much of a drop from 1st to 2nd. My birthday was on the 26th so maybe it was a belated gift?

So 11 final tables (Or close with 4 10th's) out of 89 tournaments with 1 win makes me feel much better for the start to 2011. My wife is 6 months pregnant, so I might have things turned upside down soon, but crossing my fingers. Hopefully updates to come.
