played a $10,000 freeroll, out of 1250 people 1-9 got a $530 ticket for high roller $100k GTD 10-34 got $215 ticket for 200K GTD ...i was sitting 1st a good way through it and i had to go out Aww crap!

well i left when around 110 people left, left with a chip count of around 100K, (was a family thing so was ripped between a $530 ticket or $215) so i left and just posted and folded and come back and got a $215 ticket to the $200K GTD Big Smile Big Smile

so thanks partypoker and good position to leave myself in but think i could really have made the $530 ticket Sad

but getting a ticket is better than getting nothing Big Smile Big Smile

so hopefully turn myself a good profit Cool

Grats on the $215 ticket and I wouldn't really worry about missing out on the other one, sure it's worth a bit more.. But as it is you safely folded your way into a $215 ticket and for all you know if you were actually playing you may have busted out well before 34th.. Sure, you were chip leader, but it doesn't take much for that to change once the blinds start going up, lose one big allin (KK vs AA) and you can go from 1st to last in a single hand.

GL in the $200K

Congratulations on the 215 ticket, now you need to make sure to keep us posted with your evolution there Blink

I also have to agree with jess here, you can go from hero to zero in a single hand, thats poker!

Congratulations to you for getting that ticket! And as jess said, don't worry about the other ticket. S**t happens and you might have.endef up with nothing.

You said it was a freeroll. Just curious as to what the requirements to play it was given that the prizes was so big. I actually haven't logged on to party for about 5 days now so I might just have missed it.

thanks for the support everyone, but today i'm suffering from manflu so im not going to be taking part in the $200K GTD today i will play it next sunday, will keep everyone informed on how i get on, and hopefully i do well, and put some of BRM gained knowledge into use Big Smile

It ended up good for you.
You could have finished in a better position if you were able to play the whole
tournament, but it could have turned out worst Smile
gl with your ticket wishing you a final table

thanks, i wasnt going to play tonight as not very well ( have manflu Sad ) but decided to anyways

out of 1076 there are 645 remaining and i'm sitting at 134..

150 get paid prize pool is $215,200 so i'm hoping for a good cash Big Smile Big Smile

will keep BRMers updated Thumbs Up

------------
bad news bust out in 295th place....3 allins 3 times in a row with 3 callers so i folded my hand to protect myself and 3 times i would have won and been sitting chip leader Aww crap! Aww crap!

pocket 5s ran into A6 and villain played like a muppet whole way through and called wi A 6 Sad
needless to say he hit a house Aww crap!

for such a big buyin tourney there were certainly a lot of donks in it, felt like i was playing on micro tables Aww crap! Aww crap!

You did well grahamy27. We all know what's the value of family, but it always seems that those reunions always happen when we are doing good at the game Smile If we think better about that, perhaps some of us should try to arrange family meetings when having important online games to play. This way, one could see if the pressure of almost being reaching the time to go to the event would have something to do with our performance at the game. I bet it does, and for good.

thanks mobsters, bit gutted i didnt make the money but it was a learning experience and i think i played my game fine my only downfall was trying to protect myself and survive until the money, as when people were going allin and being called by 2 or 3 others each time i folded with a hand i would normally play and the 3 times this happened to me i would have won, which in hindsight is a bit gutting but i thought i was doing the right thing at the time Sad Sad


but hopefully i will get another chance to play again Smile

Dontcha just hate it when things like family get in the way of playing poker...especially when you are in a good position.

What as the promo for the PP 10k freeroll...sounds like a good bargain and one which you very nearly pulled off big time?
