Default My first decent tourny finish

Well I finished third in a freeroll tourny, got 220 bucks. My best finish by far so I am happy. It was about 600 entered, and it lasted about 5 hours. Tons of fun, and looking forward to the next one!

a freeroll with 600 peeple...$220 for third. My guess it is the 1AM eastern freeroll on Royal Vegas. $3000 prize pool. If you enter and don't play 70% or more of the time you will still win $4 just folding everything and checking if you can in the BB

Thats correct, Royal Vegas. It is true as well, if you check off every hand, you can usually make 4 bucks. Honestly, the freeroll is the only thing keeping me on that site. Its a blast.

Patrick,

I've just found out how you felt. I 've just finished playing in a freeroll tourny. I made the final table for the first time ever and finished third. Only $23 though so not as impressive as your win.

Now if we could synthesise and bottle this feeling, we'd be billionaires, lol.

I just won third this weekend in the same tourney! I could have won, I was chip leader with 5 people to go and fell down to an average stack when I misplayed ace high after the flop missed my AKs. I was never able to regain my lead and then got busted out when I felt that one guy had gotten too agressive and loose as we got down to 3 people. He raised preflop and I raised back with AKs, He raised again so as a short stack I went all in. He quickly called with QQ and I never paired up. Ended a profitable night at 2:45AM!
