I am easily amused.
Now that you know that, if you didn't already, you will not be the least bit surprised that I got a good chuckle last night while playing at Full Tilt. I'm dinking around with a couple of PLO tables and some joke of a freeroll when boom, up pops another table.
It's another freeroll. Great, except I didn't sign up for it.
Hmmm. I'm such a fabulous freeroll player that I'm now being auto-registered for them?
Uh, not exactly. It seems that I 'won' an entry as part of a WSOP picking contest. My 'horses' (the selections were only mostly random) did well enough in Event #2 to get me in.
Truthfully, I had no idea that this freeroll existed. Apparently neither did about 375 of the other 499 participants, as it was a sitout fest. I played donktastically, finished 52nd, and for nearly two hours of effort 'won' $3.
Add that to the three or four bucks I won playing PLO, and you've got an earn rate that would be the envy of sweatshop workers everywhere.
Quit reading my drivel and instead go read some guys who can write and who post pretty pictures: Pauly, Otis, Jason, CC, etc.
