Yesterday, the day before first FTOPs tourney, I cashed in a tournament! For the first time in like a dozen tournaments, I cashed!!! I came in 22nd out of 418 entrants in a $75 entry knock-out tournament. It took around 4 hours and I won a whopping $115. NOT "net" of the buy-in. I won $115 TOTAL!!! (so $40 net) I finished near the top 5% and my ROI wasn't even close to 100%. Seriously, WTF?!? I just sat there in disbelief because I thought that must've been a typo or something. But there was no typo. That is the cruel world of tournaments. Seriously... Mole people.
At least I won another $30 or so for knocking out a few people. Norwalk Community College for the kids is sounding better and better. Bill Gates never finished college. Shoot! I think I heard the guy who founded Otis Spunkmeyer cookies only went to elementary school - may or may not be true. Funny how my "choking the chicken post" features a guy named Spunk.
Twelve days of frustration (aka FTOPs) begins tonight. May the Poker Gods have mercy on your souls.
Ouch, That Hurt
