easy money

So just to update you all on the propbet I made -- it's over.

The guy quit earlier today, which was pretty surprising. I mean I didn't think he had much of a chance, but I thought he'd tough it out longer.

Easy $1k. Feels like I won $4k though because my $3k was in escrow. :)

The easy money is nice as I've struggling on my end. Nothing serious, just breaking even since I got back to Vancouver. I feel pretty good though, about to clear some bonuses and reach some milestones so I'll have a nice influx of cash.

Until next time!

This guy above me thinks he can accumulate 830,000VPPs in 70 days. I don't think its possible.

I put up my $3000 to his $1000, and he got $45,000 action in total.

Should be fun to watch him struggle through it. Today is day 1.

I mean, supernova elite is a great value and awesome to get, but so many people struggle to achieve it with a whole year given. How this guy thinks he can get it in 70days is beyond me.

The guy will be doing updates at:

I wish him just enough luck to keep his sanity, but still end up failing the bet :)

wcoop relfections

I know WCOOP ended a week or so ago, but I've been traveling and havn't had much time to play lately, let alone post. I'm in toronto with my g/f for another week, and then to vancouver for a few months.

Overall a pretty unsuccessful series for me. I didn't have any deep runs, though I cashed in a few. The structures are just so amazing. You need to dedicate a lot of time to the tourneys, but they are so much fun with all the play involved.

In the main event, I got really shortstacked early and basically hung on for about 7hours as one of the shorter stacks in the tourney. Just stealing blinds, keeping my head above water until I got a big hand. I eventually got A10 and doubled through A9 (allin pre), and then K10 doubled through tsoprano's K9 (allin pre). I went from 6bbs to about 25bbs, when I picked up a trashy little pair of aces under the gun. I raised and got 3bet and ended up getting it in against QQ. The board 4flushed and I busted about 8 or 9hours in. :(

I'm really looking forward to pokerstars spring series, the SCOOP. Should be just as amazing.

In other news, I bought my first car! It's a 2003 infiniti G35, and so far I like it a lot. I've never needed my own car really, but I figure I deserve it. Oh and the best part is I paid for it with FPPs. I've been withdrawing my Pokerstar's bonuses into a separate account, and used all that money to pay for my new car in cash! it was a great feeling, thanks stars! :)
