Sunday Poker

Played my satellite to the $1 Million Guarentee, and was totally card dead. Only saw 2 of the first 37 flops, and unfortunetly the 38th hand was my last. I got AQo, and had already bled off 40% of my chips, I raised the blinds, and was re-raised by a very loose player. I pushed my stack in, and was called with AJo. Jack comes on the flop, and I go home from that one very early, although amazing enough I managed to outlast 289 people.

The Blogger Skill Game HORSE touranment was a lot of fun, and I played well for most of it. I was actually the chip leader with 9 left, but ended up finished 8th when a large majority of my stack was lost in Stud H/L when the low hand ended up getting a wheel straight against my AAKK high on the last card. Went out shortly after that.

The Blogger Big game also saw me finishing in 8th, when I really never could get things started. I was never under 4,500 chips (starting was 5,000) but never over 10,000 chips. I played good tight poker though, and was able to last until the final table.

I did manage to win two $26 tokens in three attempts (and got the $14 for bubbling the other one), once coming back from under 600 chips to win my token. Love those $8 2 table SnGs where 5 people win tokens!

No poker on Monday, likely just blogger events on Tuesday.

Hey,

I saw your post on another blog and figured I'd give you a headsup about a WPT giveaway I'm running this year.

You can win a weeklong vacation in the Bahamas, training from the pro's and a shot at 10 WPT buyins plus $10,000 in cash!

The first satellite is held on Full Tilt Poker (a freeroll) February 10th.

Right now there's only 34 players signed up, the top 4 advance to a single-table semi-final in February. The fields aren't going to get any smaller as word of this promotion spreads. So if you want in, you'll want to play some of the earlier events to have less competition.

Hope the tables & life are treating you well, and I look forward to you playing in our WPT satellite for free!
