I've Done Worse

Finished in 15th of 513. $1004 ($1344-$340 buyin) profit for around 14+ hours of work. Thanks to those who wished me well. Even better - no taxes on that amount.

Went out with M<2 in BB with a raise to 60k from the leader (10k/20k blinds, 3k ante). JQc, push for 45k more and it's an obvious call from him with AKo. A on the flop, Q on the turn, nothing on the river ends my run. Which isn't bad considering I was playing shortstack poker since 5pm yesterday.

Oh... AA 5x of course, no other pairs bigger than TT. AK maybe 3 or 4 times.

Great finish! Glad you were able to resist to temptation to shove a short stack late in the last hour of Day 1.

You'll finish about 14 spots higher next time, I'm pretty certain.

Good job. It was big fun even though I busted early. By 'early' I mean after only nine hours.
