Default Grand Slam!!!!!

I just hit my first Grand Slam today on the $50s on Party! Set of 4 SNGs...all wins. It's a wicked good feeling! Has anyone else done this? (I'm sure some of you have)

I did a search for this topic, but couldn't find any.

Good for you! This will happen about once in every 2250 sets if you are like me and win 14.5% of the time (never had one, have won 4 a few times in 8 tabling sets though) [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

good stuff - still waiting for my first gram slam. I have gotten ITM on all four, feels good. if 4th place paid, maybe someone could hit for the cycle, but I like baseball too much sometimes, so i digress...

The closest i came was yesterday, when I won 3 out of 4 and busted 3rd in the other (with AA of all hands!!!). It sucks to get that close and lose with a monster.

congrats, i had one at the 22s while 4 tabling, and while 8 tabling the 33s i went 6/1/0/1


ps: at the 33s i had a 50 buyin downswing also, variance sucks.

2 days ago I had some free time and decided to play a set of 4 22 sngs, I finished 1 1 1 and was headsup in the fourth but finished second there, but I was content and went to sleep.
Yesterday I played a set of 4 22 sngs again and I nailed the grand slam =)
So I have well over 300% ROI over my last 8 sngs ;D

Sustainable?
