Online Poker

Registration code: 270070

I had a real nice run in this poker tournament last year (actually it was in December 2008) and am hoping to run good (or better!) this year too. Last time I won one of the 6 prelims which awarded me $1,186 in prizes. The official PokerStars blog wrote this about my win:

Event #2 took more than five hours to play out and saw tons of familiar names from the blogging community. Notable poker bloggers Easycure, Rakewell1, NumbBono, gadzooks64, and Loretta8 all made it to the top 72 and earned their seats in the Main Event. Top honors, however, went to the United States’ malice51 who not only made it to the final, but also picked up three $215 tournament tickets, one $530 tournament ticket and a $11 tournament ticket (aka, Sunday Majors Platinum Package).

The really fun part was that I took one of those Sunday Million tickets and turned it into a 166th place finish (out of 16,260 people) that was worth $3,577.20 in cash money. Despite that nice score, however, I was bitter about how I got knocked out for some time. Top prize was $333,000 and while it is doubtful I could have gone that far I sure was planning on doing better than 166th. Read my tourney recap to see the most brutal beat I have ever taken, given the circumstances.

No bad beats for me this year. Please!
