Adventures of a Reluctant Gambler


I've Done It Again

By: HurtToSit @ 03:42 (EST) / 40 / Comment ( 1 )
WBCOOP is over an I did well.  I got ITM on earlier NLHE for an $11 Scoop ticket, and the other for a $33 Scoop ticket.  The main event was earlier today and I was in the zone for the late stages.  The problem is that the late stages became too close to work again, and I found myself at 43rd place with a healthy stack that was double the average and worth enough BB to run it hard after the $215 Scoop Ticket at 36 left.  The final table had great rewards, but unfortunately I had to go wait tables to earn $68 on a slow Sunday.  I even bribed the lunch waitress to buy myself an extra hour for $50 dollars.  Unfortunately she couldn't keep her mouth shut and must have said something to the General Manager who called 10 minutes after she said she would stay and told me to get my ass to work.  So another deep run became abandoned to the blinds and I went out in 30th place.  I'm getting tired of this story, but it reaffirmed my game and I needed that today.  Scoop is a few months off but who knows, a $215 entry sounds good!  Especially from a freeroll.  My PSO rating has plummeted from 112th place down to 300th as it became 2nd to the WBCOOP today.  Going to run them hard today to try to recapture the $50 prize but it isn't going to be easy.  :-P  8-O
