I guess winning the PS weekly freeroll to take down over 200$ two years ago , as well finish 15 place in a 1+R with a 60k prizepool and taking down a little more then 200$ , shame that i didn't get to they final table as i was running so good in one point , but when the last 18 left , just didn't hit a single hand and it was hard to bluff in that stage ...

In terms of wins was a 2nd place in a 20fpp tourney at pokerstars. Took home ~$110 coz of that . Just as far as playing is concerned, one of my best moments was in a cash game table. I got a nut straight flush on the flop and some guy went all in ahead of me with a flush A high Took Him 20 seconds to realize what happened and then shout "rigged!" in the chat box before leaving lol

So many good... First ever MTT on William Hill not long after my 18th birthday for $300... First ever four-figure win, taking down a $33 MTT on Party Poker for $1010... First ever MTT win on Pokerstars, besting 5000+ people to take home $5k... cashing in the Sunday million for over $1k... double final table in FullTilt's daily double tourneys, for a $8k pay... qualifying for UKIPT tourney for free... rivering a Royal flush vs Aces full for a $550 pot on a live table...
Yet it's still the bad things that stick in my mind more. Losing a $1200 pot with AA vs 22, all in preflop, ace on the flop, running 2s... all in heads up at the end of a MTT with 44, called by 22, 2 on the flop... cost me $3k in winnings... Bubbling in the UKIPT tourney with KK vs JJ...
Certainly more good than bad, but so hard to forget the bad.

I have been playing poker for nearly seven years, and there are three moments in poker I like to reminisce about:
1. Starting off as a $175 short stack at a NL1000 table, I worked my way up to nearly $800 when I got involved in a big pot. My full house ended up beating a flush for about $1500 dollars, and a really good player at the table commented “wp” to me.
2. One Sunday morning I decided to work on my tournament play, and I paid $4.00 to play in a micro satellite to the $80,000 tournament 888 used to host every Sunday. I then qualified to a sub-satellite, then to a satellite before winning my seat in the tournament. Out of 600 players I finished 36th for $600. At the time 888 would have a $10,000 freeroll the following week for everybody who had played in the tournament. Out of 250 players I finished 10th for another $200.
3. My favourite, playing live in our local bar league, I had qualified for the monthly tournament and a couple of hours into it, with an average stack and sitting on the big blind I get dealt JJ. Three callers and play comes to me and I put in a nice raise and they all call. The flop is Js-Ts-8d. I lead off with a decent bet, two callers and then the final player shoves. I think about it and call, and the other two players also call. I have the largest stack but not by a lot. We show cards, I have trip jacks, the player to my left has a flush draw, the player to his left also has a flush draw, and the final caller has flopped a straight. As the dealer goes to flip over the turn card I called out “Pair the board!”, and the dealer turned over another jack for quads! I suddenly become a big stack and ended up winning the whole tournament that night.
