Sandia Resort and Casino, Albuquerque, NM.
$95 + $5 entry. 211 entrants.
1st place = $7,435 and the trophy.
My first ever buy-in event higher than $40 (live) and don'tcha know, my pocket 3's held up and I won the damn thing.
It's my "home" casino, even though I live 4 hours away in Amarillo, Texas. I'm there every few weeks, so it was nice to win this thing in my own backyard, so-to-speak.
No doubt there are a few on here with much bigger scores and such, but I just thought I'd throw it out there. Feels real, R-E-A-L good!
Also, beat the $1/$2 NL game ($200 max buy-in) for over $2,000 on 2 seperate nights in the last 4 that I played there. I really feel that I'm on top of my game and playing the best poker of my life.
Guess I better update the blog....
