WCOOP Final Table!

After 14.5 hours, I managed to take 3rd out of 1066 runners in the $500 1 Rebuy 1 Add-on. It was a very very tough tournament from start to finish. I at least felt like I had a much more difficult time than in the FTOPS that I won. Of my 8 opponents at the final table, 4 were players I was familiar with, which I guess isn’t so bad for the final table of a big buy-in event.

I came to the table with 6th place chips but got down to 3-handed with g0lfa and govshark, who incidentally is the player who put me out of the $200 heads up FTOPS. I got my money in for about 1/3 of the chips in play with TT vs. g0lfa’s A6, but it couldn’t hold. I guess that makes it the worst bad beat of my career, but I can’t complain, as I obviously had my share of luck to make it that far. Oh and I won at 13 BB/100 in the cash games I was playing on the side.

I suppose I’ll have to stop complaining about how long these things take. After sinking nearly 100 hours into this WCOOP, I finally have a respectable hourly rate ;-). Come to think of it, I guess this is the best single day of my poker career, as my other big wins have come in multi-day tournaments.

Oh and the other two made a deal as soon as I busted. Guess I was the fish 🙁

Thanks to those who were rooting for me in the 2+2 thread. I’ll post some hands tomorrow and possibly get a video together for Poker Savvy Plus as well.

  1. Nice cash (I looked it up). Are you a tournament junkie now?

    Seriously, the hours and variance aside, I think there’s more money to be made in tournaments than online cash games these days if you can deal emotionally and financially with the swings and if you have the endurance.

    • mtt specialist back to ring game specialist and now back to mtt’s again. with profit like this, this year, it’s hard for him to not be considered a mtt specialist.

      but i think the problem is, there aren’t enough high-buyin mtt’s available on a weekly basis. there’s the ftops and wcoops a few times a year, but other than that, it’s not worthwhile for him.

      • Yeah, exactly. If I’m multi-tabling 5/10 NL, I’ve got thousands of dollars in play. There’s no way to invest that much money at one time in online MTT’s. Plus I really like the more flexible schedule and the deeper stacked play.

  2. Congratulations on the win. Seems a little weird though that you have your best day ever and your just kind of meh. You should look into that.
