1000 people were playing for $12000 prize. that is $10000 entry into the big tournament and $2000 costs.
I won a couple of hands with small pots and 5 mins into the tournament I was 96th out of 962 that would be my highest placing.
20 mins in 900 players left I am in 153rd position, I seem to be playing in very few hands at the moment lots of folding to the blinds going on.
Thirty mins in I slow played AA went all in on the river I got 1 call, I finished with 2 pair A's & J's but was beaten by an A high flush in spades, I should have gone all in right at the start.
That's me finished, in 702nd place, it would have been nice to get in the top 500.
I will try again next month.
