It might seem unfair for me to win the very tournament I was hosting but if Rhynie Campbell can do it so can I.
The second and final event in the Run-Good Challenge is over and yours truly is sharing the winner's circle with TripJax. We each took a $1,500 WSOP seat but I made a stupid promise before this tournament began.
The PL.com reporting team is flying down to Vegas on Tuesday and I (like an idiot) said we'd play an SNG for it once we're on the ground.
I've won the past three years of PL.com's internal WSOP battles, with @owenlaukkanen coming in second each time, so I'm not too worried.
Should something go terribly wrong I can at least take solace in the fact a PL.com reporter will be putting it to good use.
Today I put the run-good in the Run-Good Challenge. I shoved a number of times and won 40/60's to build a big stack late.
I'd like to think I played okay. I made a few good calls, re-steals and plenty of opening raises were getting through.
Focusing on the screen was difficult, looking through the haze of last night's beverages. 11 a.m. might sound late but it came around pretty quick.
Key players in today's battle were Dr. Pauly, Change100 and PL.com's own Dan Skolovy.
Like I said we're rolling down to Vegas this week to get started on the WSOP. We've got some good stuff in store including an alliance with PokerRoad, which is basically the shit when it comes to poker entertainment.
