So I parlayed seven hours of my life on Sunday into a free entry into a $215 SCOOP event on PokerStars by wading my way through 2,000 or so bloggers in the WBCOOP Main Event. Wish I could say it was due to brilliant play, huge bluffs, and hero calls...but it was pretty ABC-ish. My big hands held up, I won a couple of big flips, and that was about it. Never had more than 75,000 chips towards the end, and went out in flames when my 8BB shove with A-Q found both T-T and A-K waiting for me, in the blinds no less...but no complaints here.
And by the way, whenever I hear SCOOOOOP, it reminds me of the announcer at Hartford Jai Alai when someone would make a nice catch of a short-hop. Many nights spent at the old fronton...I miss watching jai alai (and playing it on the amateur courts in Milford), but the CT casinos stole all the gamboolers away.
