Outcome: MP2 wins t840.

Goddamn limpers. Anywhere else I would have mucked this hand.. As it is, I was afraid of the rogue diamond somewhere else.. After all, 23d is pretty wimpy, but statistically how likely is it that two of us flop a flush? It was a good odds play, and when the turn and river were both not diamonds, I figured I was up against a pair or set. This guy slow-rolled me but good. That's what I get for being out of position! I scratched around for a little bit, but I could never really make a recovery from this and died in 6th.

$10+$1 - 4th - -$11

This was a classic game of no cards at all. I mean, literally, crap cards the entire show. I got something like ATo once, and I was out of position and facing a raise, so it was mucked. Finally got blinded away.

$10+$1 - 1st - +39

Well, again, third time is a charm. I figured I'd be a 3rd place finisher here, but I managed to catch a miracle straight with an A5o when the cards fell around my 5. Whatever, better to be lucky then good. The guy I was heads up with was lousy, so once we got rid of the third guy, it was just a matter of beating the other guy into submission. I could tell he was getting fed up with being pushed around by me, so he finally pushed from the button... Only to run into this:

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t500 (2 handed) converter

Button (t1880)
ICP_Paul (t6120)

Preflop: ICP_Paul is BB with Qc, Qh.

Button raises to t1880 (All-In)
, ICP_Paul calls t1380.

Flop: (t3760) 8d, Jc, 2s (2 players, 1 all-in)

Turn: (t3760) Kc (2 players, 1 all-in)

River: (t3760) 2c (2 players, 1 all-in)

Final Pot: t3760
Main Pot: t3760 (t3760), between Button and ICP_Paul. > Pot won by ICP_Paul (t3760).

Button shows Qd 9h (one pair, twos).
ICP_Paul shows Qc Qh (two pair, queens and twos).
Outcome: ICP_Paul wins t3760.

Oops. Been on the other side of that often enough to know that kind of pain.

So, now the Tournement Challenge bankroll has broken the $220 mark, so (gulp) it's off to the $20+$2 level for me. I have the buyin for one, if I lose, it's right back to the $10+$1 level, but you know, no guts, no air medal.
