Ok, so I did satellite into the WCOOP HORSE tournament on Stars, which started Saturday at 4:30. Just eight short hours later, I was in the money, whee!
A 1800 person online tournament, with 30 minute levels. I only finished 157th, but that beat 90% of the field, so that must mean something, (hopefully) besides I'm a luckbox donkament player.
Anyhow, simultaneously, I tried a deep stack NLHE tourney on Stars (5000 chips to start, 30 min levels at 15/30 to start) and finished 52 of 721 - again, minimal money, compared to the buy-in, but a good run nevertheless.
Which is great, because I've had my brains bashed in over the last two weeks. All the good work since Vegas - gone. Right back where I started. It sucks. I feel like I'm just on the edge of a breakthrough - once I quit having everyone spike their draws on me - but it's trying nevertheless.
At least they let me play next to this guy for an hour. I hear he's ok at poker.
