Couple of local guys go deep

A couple of WV guys made final tables recently.

Really good guy and an excellent carpenter by the way, one old one cashed in the UltimateBet 3k Guaranteed Sniper on 06-25-2008. For finishing 2nd out of 493, he won $450.00.

WVUManiac2 made deep runs in both of the FullTiltPoker Daily Double Tournaments on 06-25-2008. In the FullTiltPoker Daily Double - A, he won $70.49 for finishing 16th out of 1007.
In the FullTiltPoker Daily Double - B, WVUManiac2 went even deeper, making the final table. He finished in 5th out of 915 entrants and won $439.20. Great job guys.

Me? Well yesterday I played a $2.20 satty to the Sunday Hundred Grand and the 4 pm EST $8.80 tourney, or as I like to call it, "My White Whale Tourney." I played well in the satty and made a bad move and busted out when I should have cashed. I busted out of the 8 with AQ vs AK. The funny thing is that $11 in losses shouldn't have been much of a concern because it was a really good afternoon at the day job. But the almost 5 figures earned didn't take away the bad taste of the eleven dollars lost. Fast Eddie was right: "Money won is twice as sweet as money earned."
