Dear RecessRampage,

You finished the tournament in 164th place.
There has been $75.00 added to your account.

Congratulations!
Thank you for participating.

Funny thing is, we met with the realtor today at 6pm. This tournament started at 4:45. And I was working out so I didn't really log on until 5:10pm... just with the intent of doubling up or busting... but doing neither... I just won a biggish pot to enter into 1st break with approximately 3600 chips. I hopped in the shower, closed down my laptop and figured it's just a freeroll and I wouldn't last to the money. Nothing like playing in a tournament for maybe 15-20 minutes, sitting out the rest of the time and getting paid. Man, tournaments are easy. :)

Ha. I'd say you should have called me to play for you but then again...if you did...you'd be $75.00 less rich.

Next time.

Funny, I did the same thing (grant it, I'm no iron man). I started late, tried to double up, but only was able to get from T2000 to T3200 in 30 minutes. Then had to leave. When I left, was was around 200 of 700 or so left, so I thought I wouldn't make the money (180 got paid). When I finally checked, I finished 176. Go free money.
