    I think I'm going to make this. If nothing else, it will force me to get back to my hotel room at a decent hour.

    I registered.

    Just accepted you into the league - now you should make your way back, find the schedule button/tab, find the only upcoming tournament, and register for it.

    A big hand crippled me... I end up all in on the flop with A8 vs AQ - board is A82. Turn: 9, River: 9

    bela blinded off 25k or so, and then made it back for the finale.

    Last hand, I raise with 39o, he calls q6o, flop 369, he jams, turn 9

    I'm just quoting this to reference in the future when you question me raising with Ace+rag or random paint.

    When you have the button and a 7-1 chip lead heads up, I won't question you raising really anything pre :)

    bela was getting very low on chips and I was just keeping the pressure on. Made no sense to limp that hand, and I saw no reason to give a walk.

    But yeah, I made a few interesting decisions in that tournament.

    Uggh, I completely forgot about this tournament until like 11pm when I fell into bed exhausted. Even if I'd remembered I was caught up rushing to finish stuff and wouldn't have had time. So sorry I missed this, I was looking forward to it.

    Suggestion for future games.
    1. 5,000 coins
    2. no breaks. Miss two hands to pee.
    I'm good for about 11/2 hours then burn out.
    Just my 2 cents. Thanks TRN for putting the games on.

    Agreed on all points. Trying to tune it and improve it each time, we'll get it humming.
