WCOOP days 2 & 3 review
Day 2 of wcoop events was pretty much a washout, I had a semi deep run in the $200 PLO, finishing 150th ish from a 2400 field. For some reason I played the NL 2-7 single draw event as well but was way out of my depth. There was also a $109 8 game event that started OK but i never got going properly and the structure was very fast and i bust quite early on. For the whole session I final tabled 2 tournaments, the $100r on stars, and the $30r on full tilt. I was first out on the final of the $30r but faired much better on the $100r, getting a nice cooler early doors for a massive pot and never looking back. I ended up winning the whole thing with no chops for $27989.
Today was going very badly at the start and came close to quitting the session early doors because i was very tired and busting out of everything. Perseverance paid off though as the later tournaments proved to be very fruitful. I made 4 final tables in total, the UB $100k, the full tilt $75f/o, $30r and $163 f/o. I was first out of the $75 final and 2nd out of the $30r final. I came 2nd in the tilt $150f/o for around $11k or so and ended up winning the UB tournament with the aid of a chop for $21655. A pretty amazing couple of days result wise and hopefully i keep this run good up throughout the wcoop series. So, with 6 final tables and 2 wins it adds a fair amount to the charity prizepool, please keep the suggestions coming for possible charities as well. About to crash now before a full Sunday schedule tomorrow including the $10k hi roller event, :-)
