I finished in the paid places... just! 2966/20748, winning $0.20. Which may not seem like a lot, but it's an infinite return-on-investment.

One thing that surprised me was the amount of all-in betting, particularly before the flop. That just seems like such a random thing to do to my newbie eyes, although to be fair I did go all-in a couple of times (post-flop, mind) and got lucky.

The other thing I learned? When you're down on chips on your table compared to the other players you have so fewer options. The importance of being on a par with your competitors really struck home.

Altogether, great fun!
