Nothing quite beats the feeling of freerolling into the cash, or taking enough profit that your initial investment is covered.
I have been in a College Football pick contest with 9-11 of my buddies for the past 3 years. We pay $20 a week, winner takes all, per week for 14 weeks. We reserve a little cash for the overall winner and the 'key pick' winner. We take 3 key picks per week, the person with the most key picks at the end of the season gets the extra $.
This week I took my second win of the season! I'm also leading the league with a record of 67-53 and now I'm freerolling the rest of the way....good stuff.
I also got a nice little jump last night on the virtual felt, taking down a $5+.50 45-person ($80 profit) and following that up with a $11+1 sng for a $37.50 profit.
I'm heading out to the city so nice they named it twice at the crack of freaking dawn and will meet up with some old and new friends. Should be a good time.
