WBCOOP starts in a few. Other than a disappointing line up froma lack of limit and O8 games it looks to be a stellar field with some great prizes... I may actually have to update if I can pull anything off.
I had 7 hours of live poker yesterday and this series might be a challenge if I get an actual date this week. No offense PokerStars, but live women > live poker > online Poker. Freeroll begins.
Good luck Blogger Brethren!
Update 1: After a 6 minute first hand we got underway. Too many people forgetting or not realizing it is an early start.
Got my first double up with KQ v QJ on a Q69 rainbow flop. 300 players gone in 31 minutes.
Update 2: Either I am card dead or just too tight. Not much hitting and players are starting the immature trash and bash chatting. Really want to turn off the chat... but a possibility to get someone to tilt some chips off may arise.
The knockouts have slowed chip leader has 13610.
Update: New leader, antes kicked in at 30/60... not even at the BREAK! wow. I am barely above the average... why read one version? Go over to PokerStars.com
download and watch a few tables since the table screens are adjustable!
Update 4: At the first break the top-20 are all above 11K.. and WesRoks is in the top stack position with 22k. I don't recognize any names in the field so I am wondering if it started too early for most people.
Not alot of post flop play. Pretty much just stealing blinds or facing raise and re-raise decisions. Still card dead. Think A2 was my prettiest hand in the last 20 minutes. Blah.
A few hands after the break I made a stellar river call with A7 on a J672J board. I was in EP and led out on each street. Button pushed on the river with KQ and I thought for good minute and called and took him out. 2 knockouts... feeling good.
Update too many to count: Made a stupid call on an all-in player pre-flop. Forget 3 others stil lhad to act and the SB had KK. Allin player had AJ and needless to say.. KK got sucked out on. My hand? Q 10 sooted. Lost half my stack. Dumb dumb.
578 players to go and 425 til prize bubble. See what happens!
Last update: Busto. UTG raised 3x and I had AQ in the BB. Instead of just re-raising since he had been playing solid I pushed...stupidly. I had no fold equity KNOWING he had been playing well. I let my emotions get to me since the small blind had been raising me too much.
Live and learn. Tomorrow nights donkfest gamboooool at PLO will be interesting.
