Sunday's gonna be a funday

I played in a $12+1 double shootout last night to try and win a seat to the WCOOP event number 2, $530 NL Holdem $1.5 million guaranteed. 1st got a seat and 2nd got $238. Thanks to some good play, good cards and good luck via the uk bloggers on chat, I finished first, and have my seat ! Pretty chuffed with that. Dead money I might be, but at least for next two days I can dream about that first place prize ! It helps make work a little more bearable too. With $136 invested so far in WCOOP satellites it's not a bad early return at all, and leaves me some roll still to try for the bigger buyin events which will run on the following two Sundays.

I was in a couple of other MTT's last night too, but I think work has been draining my concentration a fair bit, and I've ended just playing my cards because of lack of information about other players. It's good to remember how that feels though, as it reminds me yet again of the many extra opportunities that "playing the player" gives you to chip-up in large field MTT's.

That's it for now kids. Too much to do and too little time, and I definitely don't want to be stuck in the office all weekend.
