Haven't been able to play much in the last day or two and as a result have slipped just outside the automatic 500 qualifiers. I'm sure to drop a chunk more places in the standings after I just had the unfortunate luck of running into a table with an all in donk. We all know them they go all in every hand because its a free roll and quite often end up getting lucky. In this case after he had been all in pre at least a dozen hands in a row I woke up with QQ. The expected thing happened he pushed I called (as did 2 others with Krag) he however had KK. As Jason Mercier would say on twitter #JustBadLuck

Should be able to play 1 or 2 more today so will hopefully pick up the dropped points later on and then push on tomorrow.

Good luck on the tables!
