  • Not Too Darned Bad...

    It's not so much the amount of money, as it is the number of opponents.

    In terms of percentile, I think it's my biggest tournament win yet.

    Granted, I did get very, very lucky a number of times.

    But I'm still really happy to have done this well, especially since it was a turbo and I find turbos especially difficult.

                    Great job luv!!! umbup: Running 5th in a field of 5500+ is an excellent result. FYI,as to the "very,very lucky" thing.... ...you are almost NEVER going to go that deep in an MTT with anything above 1000 runners without getting very,very lucky a number of times. So don't sweat that or feel like what you accomplished was a fluke. One difference between being a losing and a moderately successful MTT player is to rely as little on luck as possible. One difference between being a moderately successful and a very successful MTT player is being able to fully capitalize on the opportunities that come on the occasions when you DO get lucky.
