Finally a decent online result

Sorry about lack of updates but I havent been playing as much 'live' lately, been playing bit more golf and few other things. Played wednesday and sunday and both nights busted early and cash game was horrible, losing to start off and managing to get back even both times which is nice. Sunday before playing 'live though, I lost most of the online account on sunpoker, and ended up withdrawing whatever was left and gave up on sun for this month (as I just cleared a bonus).
So, last night, bored and no money online, I decided to deposit on Pokerstars and play a couple multis. I registered for a $30 HORSE tournament and the 50k guaranteed. Ended up 4th in the HORSE tourney when KKQ was no good for QAQ in stud when he made Aces and Queens, but anyway, 4th for $160. Whilst in this I was going along quite nicely with about 20k when i picked up Kings twice on the bounce to get to 50k, then 10 minutes later found Kings again and Got it all in against Jacks and he made a Jack, This knocked me down to 18k which I managed to double twice to 75k where I stayed for quite a while until down to 3 tables. Cannot remember a hand here but got to 220k and down to 2 tables, average stack was about 350k with blinds at 7500/15000, and was on a bad table as player to my left was sitting out and to his left was Chip leader. Make the Final with 250k which isnt in too bad shape as 2 players had the majority, somehow make it down to 4 handed when i have 390k, others have 600k, 850k and 1.8M, when this hand comes up

So that was that and my biggest cash to date which was nice :).
When we were 4 handed, I was quite happy and really didnt mind where I finished, which is strange, I usually feel as I have to win and wont be happy if I dont, but had a strange feeling and luckily enough, managed to win it. To be honest with the prize breakdown, I wouldn't of minded 3rd or 4th but would probably of been pissed of with 2nd as it was big difference to first.
4th - $3600
3rd - $4600
2nd - $6500
1st - $13000
So feeling quite good and about to play few tournies tonight, hopefully I can keep a steady head and stay away from 25/50 Omaha lol.

Good Luck all.
