It's pretty sick that the SCOOP has my average buy-ins for Sunday tournaments exceeding the normal World Poker Tour main event buy in of $10k.
Both high-stakes level tournaments were $2k NL events, so that was $4,200 right there before I get to a third tourney.
This Sunday's session got off to a dismal start. As a highlight, just shy of two hours into play I realized that I had mixed up the $215 mid-stakes SCOOP with the $2,100 high stakes, and had been putting all my attention on the $215.
I had 6k of my 10k starting stack left when I realized it, and was suddenly disappointed to find that the 14k stack actually belonged to me in the $215 event instead of the $2,100. Sigh ... maybe I should wake up more than 12 minutes before I start playing a $2k.
After ultimately busting that $2k pretty early, the day started to look up when I made a back-to-back appearance at the Lock $109, $40k guaranteed final table. I ended up heads-up and we got it in for literally 99%+ of the chips in play with my 8-8 to his A-9. The board ran A-10-8-6-7.
Despite having my opponent backdoor a straight for $3k, it was all in before the flop as a coinflip and I pocketed almost $6k. I also managed to top my third place finish from last week with a second this week, which means I'm due to win it this week, right?
I also lucksacked the biggest tilted gamblefest in Sunday history, the late $109+rebuy turbo on Tilt. I had a decent stack throughout despite it being a turbo and went on a super-heater as the final table approached.
I finally cooled down a bit at the final table, which is a shame because turbo structures make for awkward stacks and little room for shenanigans. I ended up losing a race and busting to my friend Shane Schleger in fourth place for ~$18k.
Shane then got unlucky against another friend of mine, Isaac Baron, heads up. Isaac ended up taking home the top prize of $51,550. Good game, fellas.
I also spent the late part of my session min-cashing the SCOOP 20 - mid stakes (SCOOP version of the Sunday Million) and near-bubbling the $2k SCOOP 20 - high stakes tournament...but negative energy sucks so I'll stop talking about that and get to the numbers. =)
