well today went kinda weird, but not unstandard for me.
built a nice stack early, then kinda stuck there for most of day, then with 20 min left and about 20 BBs, i opened/called a shove with AQ. ran into kk and was left with 2 BBs at 400/800.
all the assholes were stalling so i couldnt play many hands in last 20 minutes and most pots were opened b4 me and i had shit like 52o, still i doubled a few times and get to start day 2 on monday with a whole 5k at 500/1000.
anyways what a weird day, i must had doubled like 10 ppl, got sucked out on many times (i did run hot early, winning 3 big flips though), and got coolered a few, including 1st level KK into AA (thankfully i had picked up several pots b4 that hand).
im kinda bummed im gonna miss the 1500 plo on monday to play a 5 BB stack. oh well, maybe i will get lucky.

i really didnt want to mention this, but i guess i will. but im leaving out details because i want to.
me and the GF both have been having some medical issues, so i have barely been playing. i dont want to get into the details, but the worst has been ruled out for us both, so thats good.
still been playing a lot of xbox, where stress doesnt cost me money.
but as far as the worst being ruled out for us both, we just got the news for each of us on thurs (even though the docs still dont know wtf is wrong with me, and to get the GF repaired may very likely still cost me about ~15k), so the timing is perfect for the wsop.
im ready to start playing again, now i know we arent dieing anytime soon (hopefully).
anyways, im def playing the 1k wsop when i wake up (going to bed soon).
i just downloaded my hand history for my 1st big score (16k, 6 months into my poker career, early 2006) that shows how i luckboxed sick playing shitty to give me my bankroll to learn and move up, and eventually allowing me to get to where i am today poker wise.
i will prob post that HH for fun later.

well FTP's synced breaks for the MTTs are def an overdue addition and they are very awesome.
i cant speak for others but i know stars will lose money from me, just because i want to have breaks.
however FTP will also loose a bit of money from me because not all MTTS will go on break, they have a small set of rules that make some MTT's skip their 1st break, and with my schedule i would have 1 most hours. if i quit stars, that means i have to play 45 mans again, some of which will also miss the 1st break. all the super turbo tourneys i have been playing miss the 1st break, a tourney that it is very retarded to sit out in, so its either miss breaks or not play them...
so i guess until FTP adjusts the schedule or changes the rules to make all tourneys go on break, (regardless of when they start) i will just play several less tourneys per day.
i am pretty sure stars will end up syncing their breaks too, as it only makes sense, and ftp will prob fine tune their system as well. BUT breaks are awesome.
i won my WSOP seat on saturday and also made a pretty good score in another tourney.
im not sure what i will be doing as far as selling pieces of myself yet, i will keep you guys updated.
i should be playing tomorrow...
