Yesterday I won $55 of tournament dollars on a $5.50 buy-in to the $5.50 + R satellite to the daily 90 grand. Today, with an investment of 100 FPP's I managed to be in the top two in a field of 31 to win an entry to the March Turbo Takedown valued at 3,000 FPP. There were two particularly epic hands that I'd like to share with you all. The first is what gave me the chips I needed to go from likely 3rd to the big stack. The second is the equally hilarious hand that ended the tournament and sent a major donk packing. Enjoy!
