Well, at least it was an improvement. For the second straight year, I lasted longer than Hutch and my father-in-law. After playing some pretty good hands early on, I was the chip leader at our table for a while and I lasted to the first break, and into the seventh round. I was in the top 45 or so out of 120. The final 20 were in the money, so I didn't get as far as I had hoped.

THEN, I went to play Let it Ride and BlackJack. I walked away from the Let it Ride table up five bucks and then sat down at a 15-minimum BJ table. Within about eight minutes, I was up 200 bucks and got up to around a 500 profit before I let 150 or so go. In all, after the tournament costs (for me and Tom) and lunch, I walked away ahead $195. Tom walked away up nearly 600 bucks, winning at let it ride, blackjack and then 200 on a dollar slot on our way out the door. Not bad for the a guy who was out of the tournament before the blinds ever increased!

You're evil for showing me that I can make it to a reasonably priced no limit tourney and still make it to work on time every Tuesday. I didn't do as well as I had hoped for, but I felt good about the way I played and had a much better time than last years limit game.
