Hello,

Sooooooo,

I just logged on and noticed that I have managed to work myself up from about 300th a few days ago, all the way to 114th this morning. Thanks to a 125th, 145th, and a few other nice results, I am now in striking distance of top 75, and a larger prize of 7.50.

I am at school right now, and think that I might be able to sneak two games in today.

Can I do it, can I possibly move up another 40 ish spots to finish in the top 75??? If so, I will be pretty impressed with myself...........

Will keep ya posted !!!

Cheers

Skiny

Ouch...out in 2015 on an A8 C all in and the other guy caught spade flush on the river.

Thats going to be some negative points...........So close yet so far.........

Two chances left. Need to run deep at 5:00PM and super deep at 9:00PM.

Two top 250's should do it methinks. Thanks for the support peeps !! Great win yesterday marivn in your 2.50 SNG, was railing.........

Cheers

Arrrrgggghhhhh

I am only 67 points out of it, so I will assume 100-115 points if enough people have also played today within the top 150.

So, I need at least two top 250's tonight for just over 110 points total !!!

Wish me luck !!. If not, i will still be pleased with my results this month on my limited schedule.

Going for the gusto in these last two tourneys.

I am going for the crazy play and preflop shoving any category one hands early !!!

At 114th right now and will fall back to about 130 after the updates, so its now or never.

May the poker gods smile on me today and allow me to win that first 8 handed all in pre flop shove !!!



Cheers

Ok,

So in the 5:00PM game and have :

9630 chips left and 1337 players left.

Made it past first break, and am currently 537th. I am ahead of almost everyone I can find in top 100, so strength of field is working to my advantage.(i think, lol)

Anyone want to rail, getting bored of talking smack to Euros by myself !!!

Cheers

427th to an AK vs 1010 vs my KK, idiot donk who called eveything catches the A on the flop, like usual. He took me out earlier this week as well. Had notes on him !!!!! How unreal is that.

Not enough points though, needed a top 250, plus another at 9:00PM.

Dang !!!

Made it past first break. still have 2650 in chips, around 1100th out of 1500 ish.

as Kevin Garnett once said " Anyting is posssssssssibbbbbbbllllllllleeeeeeee" !!!!!!!

Just need about 35-45 points to crack top 80.

87th !!!

FFS !!! I was so close !!!

Oh well, considering my volume was around 20-25 games less than those in the top 20, I will take that any day of the week.

Look out people, I am on a mission in the Skill League to prove that I belong ner the top of any of these leaderboards. It will be a pleasure and honour to play you all.

Cheers

Skiny
