OMG pokerstars blogging championship

Well I'm posted from my bed just now at 7:51am and I'm not feeling well, got a nasty stomach bug :/ .

But anyway wanted to point out that I came 4th in the Pokerstars Blogging Tournament out of 1473 runners. To be honest I was a bit gutted that I didn't walk away with the WPT seat, as far as skill levels go I feel I was at least matched with the 3 remaining competitors but I just did not get the cards I needed 4 handed , just couldn't muster up a big enough stack.

For my troubles I won a 24" Dell Flatscreen monitor not bad for a freeroll and also have my Blog URL posted on pokerstars software and website. Seen already about 100 hits since I went to bed so it sure feels nice to have people come and read my blog.

Next stop and I've said it before is to get that freakin seat to the WPT Atlantis!!! Grrrr.


****Update for Tues I'm up to over $1000 W$D and when I get some time I'm gonna do my best to sit and play through the double shootouts. I've played one so far and finished 20th which worked out as 2nd at my first table.
