oldtimer64 and I played for HU. I started out with a 2-1 chip lead and never relinquished the lead over 30 hands of HU play which is pretty impressive for NLOP.
I also received 200 tokens, but being a "preferred member", I receive 10k tokens a month, so that is not as big of a deal as it used to be.
After Step 9, step 10 is an MTT where the top two spots get tickets into Step 11. 11 is restricted to 20 players I believe and only first place gets the coveted Step 12 ticket. Once there, it goes back to a 6-max tournament with 1st place getting 10k and 6th place with 1k. I'll take it!
