I survived the Hubble bubble!

By: electrux_hcb @ 11:57 (EST) / 245 / Comment ( 0 )

I've only been playing Poker properly for about 6 weeks or so. This week I've managed to make a few achievements.
Firstly, today I placed 68th in the Hubble freeroll. I had a bit of luck along the way, but I have been applying what I have been learning and it appears to be paying off. This means I get to play in the final at the weekend and have a shot at a cash prize.
Secondly, I qualified for the Sunday Storm through the UK qualifier freeroll on either Tuesday or weds, without using any re-buys or add-ons.
Thirdly, I placed 19th for the November UKIPT league, with 102 points. Hopefully that means I get a fiver and a week of division 1 tickets, so I will be able to play in the next level tourneys and develop my game further. Also, not quite as good but still a minor achievement, I placed in the payout position in the Open Skill league. Only 50 cents but better than nothing!
I've still got a lot to learn and a long way to go, but I feel that with these achievements I am definitely on the right track.
