Million Dollar Freeroll Cash

One benefit of all the hands I put in last quarter was that I was able to achieve Supernova.  A benefit of that is a quarterly $1 Million Freeroll put on by PokerStars.  Today's tourney got 6180 entrants.  I was able to finish 765th for a cash of $300.  Not bad for a freeroll.  Really not bad considering I haven't played a tourney forever. Really didn't make any mistakes until the knockout hand.  Early position minraised, shortstack with 19k stack shoves.  I'm in the BB with about 16bb, a 42k stack, and find myself with AJo.  I reshoved and got snapped off by KK from the original PFR and AQ by the minstacker.  No miracle straight for me and I go home $300 richer.

A good experience and looking back, I should have folded.  I had enough play left to get to the next cash breakpoint of top 702.  The pay jump was $100 if I would haven't gotten there and after that point the pay jumps decelerated immensley (top 600 got only $50 more).  Oh well, lesson learned.  Hopefully I can convince the wife to allow me the time to try a few more tourney's down the road.

And, oh yeah, my bankroll has reached it's highest point ever.  /brag doomswitch on??????
