1st poker payday

Postby eftda » Fri Sep 16, 2005 3:52 am

After months of coming in 2nd and 3rd place in poker tournys I've finally won. I had full house and he went all in on 2 pair. I called so fast he didn't know what hit him. Feels too good to be true. :-)

KKK44 ;-D

Do you guys remember your 1st pay day?

Congrats on the win! ;-D

Depends on what you call a big payday for me. I've won a few hundred here and there for first place finishes, but haven't won a tourney worth more than 1K yet. Don't really play them that often. Too lengthy for me when I'm at home. I usually play 45 player or less sit and goes, or just ring games. :-)

Congrats again on the big win ;-D ! Hope the money is big! ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Congrats, Im not too hardcore of a poker player and the most I've ever won playing a tournament is about 100 bucks just playing with friends.

I remember my first payday for sure. It was first place out of 480 people in a $30 limit hold'em tourney that paid off $2180. That was my first big score. ;-D

I won about $400 in 3 consecutive tourneys...I came in second in a 30 player $20, pulled a 3rd in the next one, and won a $10 ten player...I cashed out my good fortune and haven't played online for real money since, though I get bit by the jones to all the time.

Hardly a huge payday, but still a good amount of money.
