Fifty-Fifty Seventh

Wow! Above is my biggest online MTT score ever, and I barely play poker anymore. And WTF am I doing playing MTTs anyway. Ain't I a cash game specialist? I did it without a single "re-steal", and the best part about it was the hand below. This was the very first hand of the Fifty-Fifty. Warning, don't try this one at home, but a great way to shitify your image right out of the gate.

Nice job Blinders! Love to hear your thoughts and details on your biggest mtt score.

Now admit it, mtt poker requires more skill than cash poker. That much should be obvious by now.

Nice job. I guess if you suck out on the very first hand like that, you're in pretty good shape.

Great job. Confused about that KQ hand... but anyways, it worked!

Very nice work. Congrats.

Misclick on the 1st hand?

Excellent finish Blinders. Perhaps it pays not to play MTT's that often. A 4-digit score is always a great bit of work - especially against 1000+ players. Grats.

Nice Job Blinders! Next time give yourself a chance to win, I was railing from two tables down. You played way to tight with two tables to go man :)

Chad,

I don't disagree with your comment. In the back of my mind, I was playing a bit for at least 8th place where the payout broke 1k. Not becuase I need the money, but because I have never broken that barrier in an online MTT cash. Now that it is out of the way, I am ready to make a better late run.

I still gave myself a better chance than you figured. If that last hand held up (and it rightfully could have), I have a better chance then you think after arriving at the FT as a bigtime shorty. I am better at sneaking up at the FT than pushing people around from the top.
