I managed to scrape to 5th in Bodog tourney despite running into NewinNov's quads twice (once when I turned a flush), luckily I have been rivered enough lately that I checked turn rather than going broke when river would have undoubtedly abused me.

21 entrants at $10 with a whopping $600 in bodog added prizes does make this a great value for bloggers!
