My poker journey (or My road to millions).


WBCOOP final

Well, I did it.  I stayed at about number 30 for a good part of the tourney.  Finish 155ish.  I know, just missed the jump to a $22 ticket, but here's what happened.  Playing well, late in the tourney had QQ with 3 or 4 left in the pot after me, all of which I had more chips than.  I pushed, it went back to the raiser, who called and had KK.  I was down to about 1700, which was less than 2 big blinds.  I was waiting for an opportunity (and to jump up to the next level), when AA came up.  I was 2 away from the next level, but I was playing for 1st, so... of course I pushed.  Guy behind me pushed big, and it was just he and I for a 5,000 pot.  AA vs 99.  Yep, he caught the 9 on the river.  NOOOOOOO!  Oh well, still have a $11 SCOOP ticket.  And a refined playing style.  I've learned so much playing with the guys and gals in the WBCOOP.  It's been awesome!  I can't wait to get a chance to play in some more PSO games and some other games.  I feel like these tourneys have allowed me to step it up a notch.  Where else can you play big tourneys with great players for free?  I love POKERSTARS!  I believe I've become a pretty good player through Pokerstars and the PSO website.  Hopefully, by the end of the year, my record will speak for itself.  See you at the tables!
