Two Cashes, 24 Points Short, and Happy!!

By: ericnnancy @ 20:25 (EST) / 585 / Comment ( 0 )
Well, I managed two cashes today, breaking my trend of quitting once I get 30 points, but it was fun. The last two days I have cashed early in the day and basically abandoned PSO tourneys for the day, but I still fell short of my 10 day challenge by about 24 points, but I am happy with my position going into the final 10 days of the month. I could play the 10pm, but I don't want to risk what I have accomplished today, and tomorrow is another day. so I will wait until then.

I have had a lot of fun this week, my article got printed on Tuesday, I played the Play With a Pro freeroll on Wednesday, congrats to !!111Dan for his 17th place finish and to effsea, who came up just short of having Daniel Negreanu at his Home Gam this week, finishing 2nd. It was a great representation from PSO as we had 11 Home Game Managers in the tournament, and a great showing at the Final Table, rooting on effsea.

Today I found out I will be playing in the World Blogger's Championship of Online Poker (WBCOOP) next week. For those that don't know about this tournament, it is open to any Poker Blogger that meets certain criteria, and it is a seven day event that starts on January 24th here on Pokerstars. Each day is a Main Event Qualifying tournament, that includes Spring Championship of Online Poker tickets (SCOOP), plus entries into the WBCOOP Main Event for the Top 200. The Main Event pays out over $31,000 in prizes, including a Huge first place prize including a $2100 SCOOP ticket, a $1050 SCOOP Ticket, a $530 SCOOP Ticket, a $320 SCOOP ticket and 4 entries to the Sunday Million. There is also going to be a Leaderboard for the whole series and the winner gets $5000 in Live Event entries.

So, as you can see it has been an exciting week so far and I hope the rest of the week is just as exciting. I have met some new people this week, reunited with old ones, and remember, I'll see you at the tables and Good Luck.
