Well, that little odds post looked dumb when Hoy and LJ went out 16th and 18th after taking the best of it preflop and then having the flop hose them (JJ v. 99, AQ v AT) - and of course allinat420 completely bubbled in 6th when he ran AK into AA and KJs into AK. sigh.
So adamsapple19 was the only one of the four I highlighted who cashed: in 5th.
Good thing I don't predict/bet on sports or anything dumb like that.
Yay to the ME seat winners
Adam27x (plays a ton of cash, no joke, but also no blog/twitter to link up)
and to keepfloppin and adamsapple19 for the 2K in $T they scarfed up for 4th and 5th.
Good to see that the Poker for the Rail tourney might continue in a non-NLHE vein, according to Al's chat after the tourney....
All in all, it's a wonderful gesture by Full Tilt to put up these freeroll mobneys every year for the BBT.
Someday I actually hope to take advantage of them.... :-)
Meanwhile, I decided to run some Stars steps while railing the ToC... and pushed T$27 up to a $215 step 4 ticket, one more step away from a $700 WSOP ME Satellite entry - and I bubbled in 6th for nothing.
Hey, it's just -27, not -215, in the long run, but still... bleh.
