    Pokemom2-4, I don't know how you do it. You had like 4 different tourneys going at once.:thumb: I had an amazing time even though I placed 150. Happiest moments of the day: sitting at table 26 in round 3 and beating Clay in one of the best of 3 rounds. I was never able to beat him before. :biggrin-new:
    MP Birch, thanks for your autograph. I'm probably going to place it next to the autographed Professor Birch card you gave me 10 years ago.:cat:
