Poker Stars Blogger Tourney Success

Just busted out of the PokerStars blogger tournament. I did pretty well finishing in 11th place which earns me an XBox elite package. Woot. Lucky thing because if I had only lasted another minute I would have busted in 10th and won the entire poker stars book library, which I really have no use for. I've already read many of those books and haven't been able to finish the last few books I've read. Of coarse had I won that last hand I would have nearly busted the guy I was all-in with and would almost certainly have made the final table, and been in great shape to make a run at winning.

Oh well. I took some notes, although I didn't expect to be playing so long so they aren't very good. I'll try to do a write up tonight, but it will probably have to wait until tomorrow.

Congrats. I was the lucky recipient of the bubble book prize :) I purposedly went all-in with a semi-crappy hand when it was down to 11 (just to win the XBOX), lost (as expected), and then imagine my dismay when I look at the tourney board and see that I won 10th, not 11th :P And all I really wanted was the 160GB iPod for my daughter :)

That sucks. Maybe they'll let you downgrade your prize.
