I have been only playing poker for 3 months but nothing gave me such an andreline rush as to get to the last 100 of a field of 25000 players.  I made a few mistakes and ended up finishing 80th.  Invaluable experience gained when handing 350k chip stacks and adusting mentally to the 10k and 20k big blinds. Looking forward to doing it again when i get the chance,
