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.
