BOOM! Milestone reached... $500!!!

As you can see from the snapshot above, I have reached my first milestone in my poker playing career: my account balance has reached $500. I had my biggest winning session ever as well: $143.66. It was helped by me finally getting the cards to break my way in .1/.25, which I 3 tabled for the majority of the night. For once, I did not press marginal edges at the .25 level; I let it come to me. Needless to say, I started out the night at a loss, but MAJORLY turned it around.

And the milestone hand that did it! There is nothing special except for the fact that I am on the winning end of a set over set situation. It scared the crap out of me to see his push; I expected a set of 6's.
