Vegas

A few hours ago i finished 3rd in the $2500 HA (half Pot Limit Hold'em/Pot Limit Omaha), for around $140,000. My bustout hand was pretty grim getting all in pre with AAA7 v JQK5 and the flop being 47T rainbow... i only had to fade runner runner. Anyway, i can't complain, i had my fare share of luck that you need to go deep in a tourney, and the guys who finished 1st and 2nd both played great. Got family and friends over so having a break for 10 days, then playing the three PLO tourneys, i'll see what i can do in them!

wp Ben to go that deep

prob mixed feelings to get that close without getting the gold but dust yourself down and hit the remaining events.

gl gl for rest of trip

Shame you didn't get Heads Up, especially because in the PLO game you have no equal in poker IMO

Great result, can't believe I missed this as it happened.

Would have been nice to take it down but 140 big ones must help ease the pain!

Definitely bittersweet but I am looking at the glass 3/4s full and saying well done on getting so far. That is amazing!
