marathon poker tournament.

355 entrants in a $30 buy-in $10k guaranteed tournament where $10 went to a bounty.

about six hours later, i won it. top prize of $1500.

when it got heads up, i had 1/5th the amount of chips as the chip leader and had roughly 20 big blinds, and it was through my play here that made me discover that i'm a much better heads up player than i thought. i'm the most aggressive when i play heads up than i even do 3-handed. it was a rush and an amazing feeling the first time i overtook the chip lead.

for those that care, here's the hand history of all of the heads up stuff. i'd clean it up some, but it's late and i still have some crap to do before i go to bed. Note that i followed the advice of Harrington's tournament book and never folded my small blind preflop unless it was raised.
