  • ITM, but made critical mistake.

    You're all gonna love this 1. Found myself a nice tourney to get in on late registration last night, $2.20 buy in, was doing pretty good amassing more than the average stack halfway through. Chipstack went up and down, with a reasonable variance. All things were looking good for me to make a FT appearance, still having a good stack by ITM. Break comes, I get up, get a drink, go down and have a smokey, few minutes remained in break as I got back, so I rested me weary eyes, after working all day, and PASSED OUT....LMAO...ok, it wasn't funny until I woke up this morning and realized that I had made it to ITM before passing out, but still PO'd @ myself for missing out on possibly having a good run in that tourney, and a possible FT finish, or even the win. OUT IN 37th...

        Yeah, typically don't sit out long periods, specially since I was already ITM, usually once I hit that point I'm looking for best situation, to make my stack for FT and hopefully for the win. Nice finish CHILLI, hope next time I'll give you someone to chat with. umbup:

              i feel your pain stakehorse. this evening was playing in a 1.35 KO tourney, didn't fall asleep but my ISP decides to stop my internet when i was 3rd outta 21, was so sickened to see i come back 40 mins later and my 1.6 million stack had depleted to 0 and i was eliminated in 11th

              so mad i vowed to play another one or 2 games and glad i did as i got my final table and picked up a nice 5th place

              keep it up

                Now I don't feel so bad! I drive transit bus for 10 per day. I was waiting to register for the PSO Open league and did the same thing. Put my head back for what was supposed to be a couple minutes until the registration opened, woke up with a start 5 min after the game began!
