Took second, for a prize of $1,611. Not bad for a $33 entry fee, and too bad I won't be able to withdraw that in time for the trip to Vegas.

Headsup I think the winner (Jeffsdad) might have been a bit better than me, but the main reason he won (I feel) is the lack of good cards on my part, which overcame the chip lead I had going in. Effectively the final hand I had AA down, and after the turn bet it all the way, but he had made 777 and won. I never saw it coming. That cost me $1000, but it's hard to be bitter about it, for some reason.

Off to bed for the couple of hours sleep I'll get before work tomorrow. Then off to Vegas!
