Hey guys. Can anyone remember there first ever Mtt win??

I can still remember mine :) It was the 7.5k Gtd $5 rebuy on Ipoker!

I can even remember the Tournament winning hand, all in on the flop with J8o v A9o on T87 flop!!!!

I felt like a million dollars when i saw 'CONGRATULATIONS, you have won $1,875 for 1st place' :)

So what was your first Mtt win ?!?

FTP's $5 Early Double B for like $1150... I was on cloud nine. I remember my buddy was asking me how much I won cause he heard from a friend and I said "eleven point five" and after a second I realized how noob and douche it sounded to put a decimal in a hundred value and said hundred. lol embarassing

Not sure about win I remember my first decent cash though. Came in third in a pokerstars I think 20kg for $1700. Was a freshman in college and had built up a $200 br from pinkcow poker free rolls and sattied into the tourney for $2. That funded my br to play in home games on campus so I didn't have to work for two years. Woot.

first time playing poker with people other then my friends.

Was spewing in party cash games ( would deposit 50$ then go play 25c 50c) when I started chatting with someoen also from Canada. Turns out he was also from my city and informed me of a live tourney happening that weekend! It was 10min walk away from my place.

This was very high stakes for me... 20$rebuy with a 20$addon. I brought 100$ but was hoping not to spent it all.

Double rebuy right away and played very tight... got to the addon and was in for 60$, phew!!

Right after addon I get it allin with Ax vs a better Ace. Ive got tunnel vision looking out for my 3outs and when they dont come by the river I grab my coat, say GG and start heading for the door.

Halfway to the door this old fella at my table yells `` Son you split the pot !! '' I come back and sit down and tell him 'if i win this thing you are getting a big tip! ''

Many hours later I am at the FT and get in a 3way allin where I have the nut flush draw. I remember thinking that since I had put some chips in the pot at this point and if I hit my flush in this 3way allin I had a good chance of winning the tourney.

BINK flush on the turn.

Get heads up with this old guy (structure was great, toruney started at 8pm and we finished at 330am). Old guy was super tired since he had worked a full day and he asked me to chop. I said no way realizing the edge I had at that point. The adrenaline was pumpin hard and I was fully awake and focused. He spewed his chips and I won my first mtt!

20$ rebuy, 80 runners got first for 2800$ but gave 600$ to my buddy who I had swapped when we were both still in with 30 left.

Got home around 4am with my buddy and we wanted to go out clubbing whatever but obv everything is closed so I just took pics of myself with all my 20$ bills.

Wierdly the first tourny I ever won was the first one I ever played.

Back in 2006 on Pacific Poker, some $2 MTT. I think I got $300 for first. Everything was so fast and I didn't know what I was doing, somehow i just ended up last with no one to play and I won.

I thought, 'christ, this is easy. I'm gonna play more of this.'

Been downhill ever since. :-(
