Foxwoods Satellite

Whew, I'm currently in 1st in the $30 Foxwoods satellite at Dise (1 $11.5k package only), 20 players remaining...
"Don't do anything stupid!!"

Okay, 3rd break. I'm 3rd in chips with about 11.5% of total chips. That means I have an 11.5% chance to win, right? hmmmm, don't do anything stupid.

The structure of this tournament is pretty tough. The average chip stack has less than 8xbb.

Whew, 1st place w 6 left. DON'T DO ANYTHING STUPID!!!

Not sure what is wrong with their ranking list, some guy (Trod0018) got left on the list. But anyway, I did it!

I just plain got lucky. I won 3 coin flips for all (or essentially all) my chips, my KK held up to A9 for all my chips, my AA held up to AQo for all my chips. I can't count how many times I was all in. The AA vs. AQo hand was the worst one to sweat as the villian flopped a Q (with backdoor draws), turned a flush draw, and bricked on the river. Paradise has pretty dramatically long delays between the flop, turn and river.

Whew, I can't take this anymore. POKER IS TOO STRESSFUL!!!


While I was playing this satellite, I was also playing in a $3 qualifier for the $615+$35 PCA super, and I was one of the 5 winners! I decided to unregister for the $650 event, and convert it into W$. I think I'm going to try and save up these W$ for a WSOP event.
