I got lucky around 3 times in the mid-game where I went all in and ended up being behind but caught a card on the river to pull out.

At the end, once there were three of us it was pretty steady for awhile, but then after getting a string of bad cards I decided to get aggressive when I stopped getting stuff like 3 9 off suit, and I think that was the key for me. I built up my chip lead as they folded a bunch of times, and then got it even higher by putting alot of pressure on then every hand I had something not totally crappy. Busted out Darth Paradox (who does a webcomic with ninjas and sea monsters and a very Moriarity looking villian), and then had A3 on the final hand to bust out my last opponent hitting an A on the flop and a 3 on the turn for two pair to his Queen high I believe it was.

Woo! $200 dollars richer baby!

oooh stargate background.

the new season is a bit of a meh. I'm hoping in season 10 they will finally do a jack/sam storyline to at least end the anticipation.
