PINOTTE....well done. It's always pleasing when you go down to last place and fight your way back to a great winning position, especially when you go and win the competition. Like The Irish, I have been in this situation a few times and always like the momentum it gives me as I tend to focus more and play better.

Awesome comeback dude, nice one, when u heads up, u can actually feel the cards turning against or in your favor, its very hard during full ring table to feel that change, but i know when ever i play a tournament soon as we get some what close to the money, i am card dead, so i have to w8 and have to put up with players raising my blinds, which pisses me off, and if i make the money, i dont care anymore for the variance

You came back from the dead. That must have felt good, overcoming a 19:1 chip deficit to clinch the victory. Enjoy the Win pinotte. Sometimes the amount does not matter it is the momentum it generates that counts

this astonishing comeback demonstrated by pinotte shows that once you are a poker pro, no matter what deep shithole you find yourself in in your life or at poker tables- you will go through it and come out on top (of shithole?). pro is a pro, and in this case we all can see that pinotte is indeed a true poker pro.
100 chips is a nice number to start doubling up. 19:1 chip lead isn't very good of course but atleast you didn't have 20 chips to start with As soon as you double up 2 or 3 times you're back in the game!
In these cases I like shoving every button, and hopefully catching good hands on the BB so I can call or shove over the top if opponent raises.
