WSOP Bound 

I wanted to send out a quick thank you for all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 emails, notes and whathaveyou on my winning a Main Event seat. Truly appreciated.

I couldn't get my money out of PokerStars fast enough so I had to wire over 10 large of my own money, which sucks, along with faxing over my registration. The fine folks running cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSOP were unable to verify if my money or if my fax came through, so that's wonderful. Apparently I have to wait till next Saturday to find out. Not to mention I have no clue when my start date is.

Good times.

Bonus Code IGGY on Party Poker damnit 

"Of course cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 big news is that Iggy won a seat to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Main Event yesterday. What we’re gonna do is when he sits down to play is we’re all gonna go over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re with our cameras and crowd around and take about a million pictures. He’ll appreciate that."
MeanGene

Damn Gene, I know you're kidding but that still freaks me out. I truly hope all my beautiful, rich, classy, brilliant benevolent friends in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker media are kind to me.

Or better yet, I'll get knocked out in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first hour or two and it will all be moot.

Well, I suppose cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most redeeming part of playing in a long grueling poker tourney is getting a lot of poker reading done on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 web. Which I did.

So cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re's that. But I'm so far behind on everything that I just don't have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time nor energy right now to regurgitate it.

That's right, I suck. But I'm still promising a massive uber.

So please cut me some slack, gentle reader, as I still am digesting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fact that I won a damn WSOP Main Event seat. And I just feel like imbibing a cold Guinness and rambling a bit tonight, if that's ok with you.

It was funny when I was registering a minute before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tourney began, I tried to recall cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last time I had played a large MTT. I'm embarrassed to say it hasn't happened since I returned to work over a year and a half ago.

So I guess I need to read a poker book or two, eh?

Not much to say about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tourney itself except it was excruciating cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last few hours. When I say excruciating, I mean that I nursed a small stack for much of it and was quite convinced in my mind that I was going to bubble. Absolutely convinced.

I didn't allow myself ANY consideration or feelings of what it would be like to win a seat during cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 entire end game. And when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Congratulations screen finally popped up, I let out a big old yell. And maybe a fist pump.

It was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time I have ever screamed during/after a poker game.

And it felt good. But Lord, my wife got pissed. She thought I had fell down cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 stairs or something.

And while I feel a little bit like Charlie with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Golden Ticket, I'm also going into this with very, almost sad, expectations. Just getting a seat at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 win for me, first and foremost. And I'll be satisfied if I can just survive cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first day.

Because, quite frankly, I play too tight for big stack NL tournament poker.

I've dug through my books and pulled out Doyle and SuperSystem and Mr. Harrington and am planning on some serious cuddle time with both over this upcoming weekend. And I might have to pull a McManus and reinstall Wilson HoldEm on here, as well.

Beyond that, I just want to embrace cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 experience. Have fun and revel in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fact that I finally get to play in this monstrosity of a lottery. When I briefly considered not dealing with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hassle of wiring cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 money to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Rio, battling cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 logistics of flights, hotels and work, and just sticking cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 12.5k in my pocket, my wife mocked me.

"Do you know how many times you've told me that you want to play in this tournament over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 years? Oh no, mister, you are definitely going," she stated emphatically.

And so cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re you have it.

2008 WSOP Main Event. Pretty much free-rolling, too.

I'll be back soon.
