Back in the swing

After a couple of weeks off and a couple of half-hearted attempts this afternoon, I was back on the mtt trail tonight with an entry into what is becoming my favourite tournament, the 1:00am $5k Gtd on Betfair.
My attempt to qualify via the satellite route failed miserably when my full house lost to a bigger full house on level 4...........such is life.
So after forking out the full $25 + $2 to enter I was determined to give it a decent shot.
A couple of hands early on and I mange to treble up into a position where I can afford to be patient, and patience is the name of the game as I'm card dead for over an hour.
Then I cant win a hand until I outdraw KK with JJ and I limp into the money in 20th place of 20 to get paid, I need to make a stand somewhere, and a couple of all ins with 55 which stands up against AK and then the following hand immediatley after has me thinking lady luck is smiling on me.

AA a couple of hands later and Im in third position, but no fairy-tale ending as I have two pair outdrawn to a flush on the river to go out in 10th for $100, not the big win I was hoping for, but hey, a hundred dollars is a hundred dollars. It will do for starters
