I have mixed feelings here. On one hand, it's AMAZING to go so deep in the tourney. And let's be frank here, a payout of $19,265 on a $1,500 investment ain't nothing to sneeze at. After all, there's a veritable who's who of poker's elite who got jack shit after playing in the same tournament.
On the other hand, it must be incredibly difficult to stomach being in contention for most of the day only to bust on the bubble of the final table. I only saw F-Train post two or three entries on the downswing, but the pots must have been big.
Nevermind that. Good going Lana! I hope you'll concentrate on how great the accomplishment was rather than the disappointment and that will drive you forward. Keep it up and you're due for a final table soon.
