350 for singles-14 runners
400 for team- 16 runners
gud luck buddy
doesn't matter seeing as we're all too pathetic to get onto the top 250 leaderboard. If no one gets onto the Leaderbaord the singles comp is void.Edited By: daughton Jul 17th, 2012 at 03:57 PM
As Foutight says in the OP, we should be ashamed of ourselves collectively if that doesn't change by Monday
i am on 187 right now.... dont know about others...top 250 is piece of cake..lol
all u need is 13-15 cashes..
say you average 20% ITM over 70 events averaging 15 pts per cash. thats 210 pts. prolly good enough to make the leaderboard by the end with nothing other than average results and a ton of volume.
Dam it wish I'd had the money to do this again cos my score would already be infinitely better than last time! Good luck everyone especially my fellow kiwi!
My day started like that yesterday before I had a few hours and gave a MM event a go, then all my hands held, funny what you can achieve when that happens!
PS hope your mums is ok mate
You wouldn't believe it, this past week or so was terrible, told it was a brain tumour, spent everyday at hospital, googled too much shit on brain tumours, had hoards of visitors come through and cried buckets - then on wednesday after the second MRI scan - Miracle - fluid on the brain and you can take your mum home tomorrow - wtf...... bloody good news though, even though it all fkd my head up, couldn't be bothered haven't an argument with the bloody doctors, just soooooo happy about me mum :-)
So hopefully in a better head space to make a long run in one of this shit storms of a tourney called MM, god know our team needs some points...........
Great news mate, those doctors sound like they work at Waikato!
Yeah join those of us that have gone ok! 8 kiwis have made final tables with one shipping one the other day, dunno who or what one but for a lil country we're going ok!
great news Norv!!!!!Edited By: FouTight Jul 20th, 2012 at 03:10 PM
Got back in town late last night... is it normal for me to want to ignore all my friends that want to hang cause I want to grind MM after finishing 87th in the wsop main?
Congrats and welcome back Foutight just take down the MM ME now.
Congrats on an awesome main event, FouTight!
GREAT to hear this norv, health FTW !!!!!
Welcome back Fou, bigi grats for the bloody deep run in the main, hard to win flips against the french women thro.... How about shippin' this sunday's main ??
thnx e1 and FOU ur a legend, CONGRATULATIONS, top 100 is epic, and gives you plenty of buyins for the next few years when you will do even better - i send good kiwi vibes over the airwaves to you
secondly i think grindin the MM is understandable, even if you had finished top 20, the MM is epic and I can't wait for someone who is in the competition to actually win one of them - will be way cool -- so lets try fkn hard on sunday (monday for me) and take the bloody ME down!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MEDIC....i'm fading. grinding out this series is killing me. hate u stars. what a stupid series. so dumb to cram 100 events in 10 days. i'm used to playing like 6-8 hrs a day. up to 12-16
lets go, grinding it out the hard style! going for 21 hours poker yesterday ->6 hours sleep -> 35 hours poker starting now
Dammit, just missed final tabling one of those 10000 people turbo rebuy crapshoots. Out 42 in a pot for a top 10 chipstack, bah.
Out of the Main after less than an hour, KK vs AA for 3/4 of my stack vs the agro dude and AK vs T8 for the remaining 40BB, it is amazing how ppl call for half of their stack w so weak holding...
Only McAndrew is left gambling for our team so unless he ship the main we are dead..
It was an exhausting week mentally, low stakes MTT is not the best things for the mind (obv other stuffs are way more rewarding for me in term of $$ and mental condition) but I enjoyed some part of the experience a lot and specially the fact of meeting great persons !!!
A special thanks for :
- the Fou for organizing the comp (even with the WSOP main on your schedule)
- the Wacky for the back office work (my friend ur always here, so nice and positive !!)
and of course my teammate for the comp :-) !!
GL all P5ers, see you around there one of these days !!!!
Out of ME - AA busted by AKo
busted main KK<ak all in pre and this hand finishes off my series. Ran absolutely terrible the whole way through. Oh well :(
