I just wanted to thank Pokerstars and PSO for giving me the chance to play the Sunday Million last night.
This is how I was able to freeroll into the Sunday Million, in August I won $3 in the PSO league, which I used to buy into three tournaments in the Facebook league, where I cashed three times and won a step two ticket, where I won a step three and managed to turn that into a step four worth $215 which I used to buy into the Sunday Million.
I was really nervous playing such a big buyin event my average buy in over forty tournaments is in the $5 range where my opponents were in the hundreds. Early on I felt I was getting bullied and my cbets were all getting raised, then I get AJ in the small blind, I knew if I raised the big blind was most likely to shove as he had an excellent stack to do this with, with a wide range, so though I did not like it I knew I had to call if he shoved, he did with TJs and flopped a straight, so now I am short stacked and looks like my first Sunday Million will soon be over.
Somehow I managed to recover to a reasonable stack after being down to less than ten big blinds, eventually I would be eliminated in 1364 place when 1170 cashed for over $300, I was in the big blind with QQ and a player pushed from early position who had me covered, I thought he would raise less with aces or kings so I called , to be up against AQ and an ace hit on the flop, ending my first Sunday Million.
I think the Facebook league and Twitter league are excellent value if you are trying to get your 20 points to be an active PSO player as you can win tickets like I did, for now its back to the freerolls for me .
