Hey, I Won A Poker Tournament!!

I hate to post anything because I almost always crash and burn for a couple weeks after, but I won a $2,000 Step 7 seat on Tilt and won my 13th tournament ($50 rebuy - 179 players, for about $5,000) (100 players or more) out of about 1900 tournaments played, which doesn't seem like a lot, but my avg. tournament field is about 450 players so technically I should have only won 1 for every 450 tournaments played = 4-5 if there was no skill involved. I have stepped up the bigger tournaments this year and am playing about 1-4 per day, which is nothing compared to the regular online pro's who play probably 10-20 per day. Fortunately I'm also doing quite well playing standard 9 player sng's on Full Tilt and was in 1st place on sharkscope for total profit $100-300 despite only mixing in 4-8 per day. My win rate per game will eventually top the charts once I'm able get enough games to qualify (I think 500+). Right now I'm averaging about $35 per game $100-300 and #1 on sharkscope is also about $35. I'm currently on 4 different leaderboards, but we'll see how long that lasts as new players are added on and I get through my donk sucking variance fits.

My wife is about to give birth to my 2nd child so I'm planning on having my schedule being screwed up, but also planning to take a few months off work so I guess it could go either way??? Maybe I can keep running gooood and finally ditch the 9 to 5 once everything is paid for and settled down the road. I still hope to play a couple WSOP events, but all is in the air to see how my wife does with the birth and cross our fingers for no problems. Donkeyherder/Chipstacker2000.
