Recent Best Finishes In Full Tilt Poker's 'Poker After Dark' Round 1 Qualifiers

10/7 -- 8th out of 360
10/13 -- 12th out of 180
10/21 -- 16th out of 180
10/25 -- 11th out of 180
10/26 -- 19th out of 180

...still need a 1st place finish (or a 2nd in the 180-player rounds -- I still haven't figgered out why they do it that way yet [you'd think it'd be top 2 finishers out of 360 players or top 1 out of 180 -- but NOOOOOO!!! (okay, okay, restraining my inner Belushi)...]) to make it to Round 2 (Dernded it! I made it that far once or twice before, right?... now can anyone remind me just exactly how I did that again? [scratches head]...)

"This area has to do with rhythm, music, and hearing. Those who have a high level of musical-rhythmic intelligence display greater sensitivity to sounds, rhythms, tones and music. They normally have good pitch and may even have absolute pitch, and are able to sing, play musical instruments, and compose music. Since there is a strong auditory component to this intelligence, those who are strongest in it may learn best via lecture. In addition, they will often use songs or rhythms to learn and memorize information, and may work best with music playing in the background.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include instrumentalists, singers, conductors, disc-jockeys, and composers." (Wikipedia)
