Archive for the ‘Full Tilt 750k Satellite Challenge’ Category

I went into Sunday with 11 wins tied with “PokerStallion” atop the FTP 750k satellite challenge leaderboard. 

The entire week I was on the lookout for “The Fiend 34“.  I was aware of his domination of FTP sats but he was nowhere on the leaderboard radar.

That was until today when he came out 14-tabling, piling up win after win finishing the day with 23 and a 1st place finish in the sat challenge for a cash bonus of $400.  I got $200 cash for 2nd.  3rd got nada.  You shoulda woke up earlier instead of sleeping in PokerStallion, sucks to be you.  MonkeyLover fizzled out after Friday.  I think he finally figured out he wasn’t gonna keep up playing $14+1 double-shootouts.

16 wins in Full Tilt Poker 750k Satellite Challenge

I finished the week with 16 after adding 5 more wins on Sunday.  I guess I needed an 18 game lead going into the last day of the challenge.  Either that or try and 14 table them which is probably not gonna happen.

Next time, I’ll stay away from the turbo MTT sat minefields that run on Sundays and just stick to the single table non-turbo sng sats.  The fields are very soft.  The turbo MTT sats just cut into my profit and are more or less a crapshoot.  I won 2 seats in 4000 fpp MTT satellites that didn’t show up in my total.  I’m not sure why that is but whatevah, I picked up 86k in FPP’s.  Now Tina wants me to get a Sony camcorder from the Full Tilt Store.  That might be fun but I think I’m gonna sit on the FPP’s for now.

Unfortunately, i didn’t take the title this week but it was definitely a profitable experience.  Maybe next time.
