Marshmellow Peep Sex Satellite Goodness

So a big thanks to Easycure, Bobby Bracelet, Alan, Scott and the other degenerates who railbirded me on to my 2nd-place finish in my satellite tourney tonight. Thanks to the Marshmellow Peep Sex SNG, I just turned my $6.60 into a $535 entry into the 100-seat Guaranteed tourney on July 16th at the World’s Greatest Poker Site! This summer I’ll continue my quest to turn a $6 SNG into a seat in the WSOP Main Event! I think a 2000% ROI on the one tourney would make for a good year.

I managed to snag one of the three seats available in the 80-person MTT, marking my first internet final table in many a month! I even channeled the LuckBox at one point – typing “I have outs” in the chat on IRC when I pushed with my A3 into A 10 on a board of A 2 5. Running 4s gave me my straight and propelled me to my satellite, even with the loudmouth buttmonkey at my table catching quad queens twice in the span of 15 hands, once against me to destroy my chiplead.

So I’m excited about that, but also a little intimidated by the prospect of playing in a tourney with such a big buy-in. Guess it’s good practice for the WSOP event I plan to play in July, huh?  

I probably won’t have much more going on this week poker-wise, since I’m still huddled in a theatre for most of my waking moments. Finished with the NC Dance Festival and the Charlotte Philharmonic, but now I’m in tech for 42nd St. But hey – March is just around the corner, and with it, trips to Orlando for drinking, I mean, a conference, and Austin for drinking, and I mean drinking!

I'm in awe of anyone who can do well at MTTs.

Don't know how people do it, but I guess that's a secret that MTT winners like to keep amongst themselves.

Congrats on the satellite win and good luck on July 16th!

Way to go! I've done well at the MTTs in the past (not that well, tho), but they're running cold for me. Guess I'll start channeling CJ, too, and see what happens!
