My first "big" cash on Full Tilt Poker.

Just took second in a $24+2 tournament on Full Tilt Poker. About $2400. Was 1 bad beat away from the $4000 first, but I'll certainly take 2nd for my $26 investment.

My decision to stick to tournaments when online definitely seems like the right one. I am almost caught up to my losses from the ring games. For now, while I'll play cash games live, online is tournaments and tournaments alone.

One interesting observation. I am cashing somewhere between 10 and 20 percent of the time. That is pretty good, but it can definitely be frustrating the other 80 to 90 percent of the time. I can see why they say poker is a tough way to make an easy living. Definitely keeping it in the hobby stage.

For now. Happy
