You can't give up on goals...

Premiere league, here I come!!.


At the beginning of 2013, I made a goal to get into the Premiere league via the Open league.  It took me 5 months longer than expected, but I got it done. 

Maybe I did it in style... I certainly sweat it out April 30th.  I played close to30 games in my run, and had several finishes inside 400, with two inside 90.  I couldn't quite put three consecutive under 400 finishes... (I had 4 in 5 games...), too bad for me...   I got up to just shy of 500th place, and decided I should try to break the 500 barrier... that is when I had a few "early" exits, and dropped my position to 700.  In fact, my last 4 games gave me negative points, and I ended the month in 806th place.  I'm glad my bad finishes did not cost me a place in the league...

I've been in the Premiere league before, and I enjoyed a long stay there.  I look forward to doing it again.  This time, I will be trying to maintain 150VPP each month to qualify for the larger prizes.  I may be looking to getting a stake started to bolster my bankroll and get it done.

We shall see... I still thinik I have enough bankroll to get it done...

I'm excited, as my first premiere league game will be in under an hour!!

See you at the tables!



Final table my first league game.  (But not so good the second, out at about half way through the field, lost with QQ vs QJ off suit...

I'm looking forward to a good month...
