Win some, lose some

I played in one of the Party Poker multi-table freerolls last night for four freaking hours. Placed 30 out of 2299. Got knocked out through my own stupidity. Dealt QTd, flop came KJx, and I pushed all-in. Got beaten by AKo. Not good to get punchy late at night.

On the other hand, I won a $10/1 Pot-Limit SnG. The edited history is below.

Yours truly,
Mr. X

...up too late last night...

Wow. That is . . . some post.

Yours truly,
Mr. X
