Poker Ramblings of cmitch

Contact Info:

Mixed emotions. It is nice to have gone so deep (84 out of 4,500+) in the FTOPS Main Event, but stings to get so close to a huge payday.

I have a busy day tomorrow. It is our daughter's first day of kindergarten and I have a project due. I'll go through the hand histories tomorrow night and post a few on Tues - mainly the marginal calls/risky pushes/etc.

Thanks for all the rail support!! That was awesome!!

  4. I'll admit...I crashed well before your run ended, but watched along the way...congrats.

    And let's leave the kindergarten stuff to yourself okay? I have two years before my daughter goes and I am in denial.


  5. Awesome job, Mitch wtg!!! You made a couple of big comebacks from what I saw. And I too am looking forward to your discussion of some of the hands. That is a really incredible run, congrats!

  6. Congrats on the great run! I watched just after Lucko busted out (who I'd just wished good luck to, then he went busto). I decided my powers were too great and kept my luck to myself for you.

  7. Congrats on the deep run.

    Although emotions are mixed about not going deeper it's still quite an accomplishment.

    Continued Success.
