Another World Blogger Championship of Online Poker is in the books. Some people won giant prizes. Some won medium size prizes. They're all good. Thank you PokerStars!
Playing poker on Sundays has always been a problem for me. I have obligations that conflict with tournament scheduling. Always have. I do periodically wonder if I would have become a MTT donk if I had ever been able to play Sundays, but it's just pointless speculation. Sundays are not poker days for me.
At least it's winter and the 15:00 ET start meant that I had a little time to play in the Main Event.
I had drizz at my starting table. About three hands in I picked up QQ. Some unfortunate soul had JJ and decided to put all his chips in on a 9 high flop. He didn't get there.
Still in the first half hour I found another willing donor, a donk who decided to shove with AQ on an ace high board. Alas for him my AK held and I had 9,000 chips and was up to 3rd overall.
And then nothing much else happened. I floated up and down between 9,000 and 12,000 chips through the second break, when I had to leave. I had about 9,000 left when I shut it down and didn't think I'd make the money with ~450 runners left. I was wrong. I blinded off in 192nd place, good for another $11 SCOOP ticket.
I got nothing in Saturday's qualifier, so the final count for the series is 2 x $11 and 1 x $16.50 SCOOP tickets. Not stellar but not bad. I'll definitely be looking forward to the release of the SCOOP schedule.
