I played in my qualifying tournament for the PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker today. Here are the results:
PokerStars Tournament #124189663, No Limit Hold’em
Freeroll Super Satellite
Target Tournament #170000000
72 tickets to the target tournament
Tournament started 2008/12/20 15:00:00 ET
You finished the tournament in 16th place.
You qualified to play in Tournament #170000000 and are automatically registered for it.
Yep, 16th out of 549, well within the top 72 to qualify for the Finals tomorrow. I also placed well enough to receive free entry into a $75 + $7 Step 3 tournament, but I haven’t received the registration ticket for that in e-mail yet. The chances of coming away with a prize of some kind in tomorrow’s finals are good. There are only 369 entrants at this point, and the payout table (near the bottom of the page) goes through 100 places.
Looking forward to it! If you have a PokerStars account, drop by and watch me play at 1:00 PM MST. You can find me through
