WCOOP final day!!!!!!!!





Well, woke up pretty tired and hungover this morning and wasn't really feeling in the mood. Took me a few hours to snap out of that and was OK then and on the grind of a full schedule including the $5k buy in WCOOP main event. My only really sweat from the early tournaments was the UB 500 but I ended up losing a 100k pot at 400/800 shortly after getting in the money, sigh. I went deep in the full tilt 9pm $69 tournament and came 3rd for $6100, ran pretty bad 3 handed tbh. Got nothing going in the later tournaments and was finally left in the wcoop main event and the $1k 2nd chance event. Unfortunately they both ended pretty quickly, I squeezed KJdd into QQ with 24BB's and bricked a 78Tdd flop to bust the 1k. Not long after I opened K4hh in the main event and got 3 bet on the button by a super aggro guy, I 4 bet jammed for 34k at 300/700 and he tank called with JJ (nice nitroll). Board ran out AA5hh Q 6 :-( gg WCOOP 2009. Was a real shame not to make any runs in the WCOOP events but ran very well overall so no real complaints. Going to post my OPR stats for the wcoop period from the 3 main sites:

$68,005 $38,702 132% $156 666 32% 27/188 14%

UB: Cant Find any OPR stats for UB but i had two good wins on there for $21k and $7.1k as well. Makes for a pretty good ROI etc.. as most days I only play 2 tournaments on there, couple more at the weekend.


So with just the final table for today the grand total to be donated to charity is:

$6663!!!!!!!

Pretty pleased with that effort, shame i didn't Bink a wcoop and really shoot that number up but there is always next time. I received 4 suggestions for possible charities so have just decided to split the money equally between the 4 of them. The charities are:

Myelin Repair foundation - http://www.myelinrepair.org/

Macmillan Cancer support - http://www.macmillan.org.uk/Home.aspx

Teenage cancer trust - https://www.teenagecancertrust.org/

Bolton Hospice - http://www.boltonhospice.org.uk/

I will donate $1665.75 to each of the charities which comes to £1028 using xe.com. I like to thank everyone for their comments throughout the wcoop and support on the rails, much appreciated. I am moving house tomorrow to live with some friends from home so have no idea when ill be playing poker again, planning to have an extended break. Took a few screenshots to show i actually made the donations, :-) One last thing, A friend of mine Nicky evans has just started a blog (link on right hand side) He seems really enthusiastic about it so should be a good read and worth checking out imo.
Thats about all for now, looking forward to a long sleep and forgetting about online poker tournaments for a while, gl at the tables.

Thanks for all the nice comments. I apreciate the people from the myelin repair foundation coming on here to thank me personally as well, means a lot. A fellow poker player sent me private message when he heard about what i was doing and suggested your charity as he had recently been diagnosed with MS.
