Then I placed somewhere around 160th out of 180 in a $4 + .40 SNG tournament, losing to a set of fives.
But then I sat down at a $3 + .40 turbo, and placed second out of 10 players, earning $9.
This placed me up 70¢ at PokerStars for the night. W00t! That's about the value of a piece of toast from the company cafeteria. Yum.
