It is not the biggest cash i've made, but it is by far the one I am most proud of. Participating in a field of 38,254, I battled, clawed and lucked ( & sucked) my way all the way to a finish as # 40.

Overall I am very pleased with my game, although my last few decisions may (in clear hindsight) have been a little shaky, but I based them on my reads, more than the cards, so I think I've made the best choices I could have, with the knowledge at hand.

Best of all, it's increased my bankroll tremendously (i normally play 12-16 $0.10 / 360 player Turbo SNGs at a time) so now I can finally begin building a fatter bankroll, going forward.

Even though I am really tired now, I can go to bed, with a grin on my face ...

I F.....ing did it
