    This may be a little on the sleazy side, but I had to share this with people who would understand. I never play online tournaments; I mostly stick to 50NL cash games, but tonight I got a notification for a $5k guaranteed tournament and thought, "why not?"

    Now, I'm not crazy about the tournaments at Carbon because there's always a 1.5 hour late registration period, but it ended up paying off this time. Out of a field of 266 I made it down to heads-up and eventually took second due to a couple of bad beats. I was bummed at first, but I walked away with $1700 (!) which is absolutely my biggest cash to date.

    Brag over. :cigar:

    You're only allowed to brag on here if you come in 1,128th out of 2,163 entrants, you know, Nooker-style.

    Seriously, congrats on the cash, I'd be excited too!

    I think it's fine. Congrats on the win.

    I also find the late registrations on Carbon to be annoying.

    Thank you all for the kind words. I felt kinda lousy after starting this thread initially, like I was bragging too much. I was just super excited and now I feel even better after all of your compliments. Now it's back to grinding 50NL!

    One day I'd love to do a CT meetup, but ONLY if I get to see your new customs in person. :wink:

    Nice job MR, congrats. Not too braggish in my book at all.

    BGinGA wishes it had been posted in third person, though. :wink:
