What a night

The evening started with Weak_Player and I finishing our HU Challenge....I won the best of seven in 5 games. With only a few ugly suckouts. Looking forward to the blog postings, Weak.

Then the DADI/WWdN. I went into it already resigned to losing, but looked at it as 1) a few hours of practise against a truly stellar field of players and 2) a donation to send someone to the WSOP.

Well 3+ hours later I get busted out by Gracie's set of 9's, and received this in my email:
PokerStars Tournament #22180151, No Limit Hold'em
Super Satellite
Buy-In: $28.00/$2.00
78 players
Total Prize Pool: $2184.00
Target Tournament #22178384 Buy-In: $1500.00
1 tickets to the target tournament

Tournament started - 2006/04/24 - 21:00:00 (ET)

Dear Katitude,

You finished the tournament in 8th place.
A $84.00 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

Thank you for participating.


I'm giddy. I'm dancing around my apartment to 80's retro New Wave (looove the Eurythmics). No, I didn't make it to the WSOP entry, but I never thought I'd even make the money with this group. As I said to Garth, I'd feel less pressure sitting beside John Juanda than I did sitting beside Gracie!

Many, many thanks to those who stayed up late to hang and offer words of encouragement: Jules, Hoyazo, BrainMcPoker, Garth, Hoff, CarmenSinCity, Drewspop Weak, Sox and Duggle. If I wasn't so tired I'd put in the hyperlinks, but wth, the links are on the sidebar.

I'm done. More on this tomorrow.

    Congrats on an epic comeback. It was pretty funny having matching stacks for a few orbits, but you did what I was unable to do and rode it back all the way to the money. Excellent work.
