the q was posed to me today.
I was playing in a 60ish person tournament (semi-serious) back in like February. I ran over all of my tables, including the final table. I went into heads up with one of my first students (I taught her the rules, coached her through some basic strategy). She played so well that day. That was the coolest moment for me.
Second was paying rent/bills/all of my expenses for the month for the first time.
Third was then taking my mom out for a VERY nice dinner and laying a crisp $100 on the bill and telling my very skeptical (of my poker) mother that poker had paid for dinner.
