Hey guys,

Anyone who listens to wcoop radio would know what I am talking about, there is a $1 hyper turbo tourney that runs daily. The winner gets a chance to answer the phone with 'the phrase that pays' (Which was "Matt Broughton, handsome, for a man" (btw Matt Broughton is a co-host with the hilarious Joe Stapleton) which rewards them with an additional $215 ticket - and that winner was me!!

I started HU with 19k vs 148k, double ups on the 1st hand with 66 and again with QQ on the 3rd hand got me thinking I still have a chance! (I was still slightly behind after those 2 souble ups).

I was sort of card dead but ran amazingly, and ended up taking it down for $62

I obviousy used all of my run good in that tournament (so worth it though) because I didnt even come close to cashing in any of my other tournies for the morning

So now I have a $215 WCOOP ticket, I am planning to play event-63 with it (starts at 1am local time , stakes much much higher than I have ever played before I can't work out whether I should late reg to avoid the 200BB stage, I know that I would be folding most hands early on anyway.


I still can't believe any of it really, lol
