This was a $5 + 50c tournament played on PokerStars last night. I was surprised there were only 11 runners, and I wouldnít have played if I hadnít thought late registration would result in 5 or at least 4 places paid. Iím glad I did though, because after a none too great start the cards all but played themselves. Probably I also had more luck than I deserved; heads up I was massive chip leader, and had a bit of luck there too.
The screengrabs below are all from the tournament and are in chronological order.
