I'm a Stud

PokerStars Tournament #10124449, Limit 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo
Buy-In: $20.00/$2.00
70 players
Total Prize Pool: $1400.00
Tournament started - 2005/07/22 - 09:30:00 (ET)

Dear frogalog,

You finished the tournament in 1st place.
A $420.00 award has been credited to your Real Money account.


The funny/sad thing about that (other than the fact the it came in 7 Card Stud/8, which isn't, umm, my best of games) is that it's the first MTT I've ever won. Handful of seconds, a few thirds, assorted final tables, but I'd never actually won a tournament until this morning.

Too bad it was at 7:30 in the morning, with all of 70 players, but hey, begging monkeys can't be choosing monkeys.

I'd take a first right about now, even in a small field tournament like that.

Very nice job!

I think the jackass-to-nonjackass ratio is higher in the "less popular" games.

I've figured that my first MTT win would come in Omaha or something.

I'm still waiting though.

My best finishes in MTTs are in anything besides NLHE.

Great job man!
