I will never forget the night of 19th February, 2011. Finally I can say with pride and happiness that things finally turned around for me and in what a way..!! The night started off slow. At 10 pm, I started playing PokerGuru’s sponsored IPS satellite on 888poker. I couldn’t get anything much going and was finally knocked out in 20th place or so.
After this, I ended up dozing off. I woke up suddenly only to notice that the 2 day $2,100 FTOPs event was gonna be starting soon. On a whim, I decided to play 1 of the satellites which was guaranteeing 10 seats figuring I had a good chance of making making a big profit. It went very satisfactorily with me getting $2,100 credited to my account for finishing in the top 13.
The story really takes off only here. I was almost about to go to sleep when I saw that the $24+2 42k guaranteed tourney on Full Tilt had been running for almost an hour and late registration was about to close. As if destiny was guiding me, I ended up registering for it. Wonder of wonders, I ended up besting a 2,525 strong field to win it and the cash prize of $12,300!!!
It’s my biggest online cash and my biggest online tourney win. I don’t have words to describe my happiness!
