Cashed in my first major on only my 2nd attempt!!!

Nothing great, but I've never played in a Sunday major before today. With those crazy 2x guarantees and huge prize pools I couldn't resist. Friday I sattied into the Sunday (2) Million on my 3rd double shootout attempt. So I was in that tourney for only $35.10 instead of $215.00. I decided then that I was going to play a little over my head this Sunday and experience a Sunday like I often read about on P5's. I slept a little longer this morning than I wanted to so the first tourney I played was the $11 200k guaranteed on Stars. This was my schedule for the day.

12:30pm Poker Stars $11.00 NLHE 200k guaranteed
1:30pm Poker Stars $215.00 NLHE 2 Million guaranteed
3:00pm Full Tilt $26.00 NLHE 16k guaranteed
3:30pm Poker Stars $215.00 NLHE 2nd Chance 400k guaranteed
4:00pm Poker Stars $11.00 NLHE 40k guaranteed
5:00pm Poker Stars $27.50 NLHE 50k guaranteed
5:00pm Full Tilt $26.00 NLHE 32k guaranteed
6:30pm Poker Stars $55.00 NLHE 100k guaranteed

Total buy-ins for the day $406.60 (couning the Sunday Mill as $35.10 cause I sattied in)

Total cashes for the day $506.44

The only tournament I cashed in out of the 8 I played was the $215.00 Sunday 2nd Chance. I bubbled the $26.00 32k guarantee on FTP and really wasn't even close in any of the other 6. I had a huge stack in the 32k on FTP too but one misplayed hand and one bad beat and I bubbled. All in all I'm pretty happy with the day. I played pretty well for the most part, had some great players on some of my tables (RaiNKhAN, atimos, BodogAri, THAY3R, Stoweski, legggggggggy and I'm sure some others) and it was a good experience. I know I can play at that level now. Honestly, a lot of those big buy-in tournies felt just like a $5 MTT.
