Mind the Gap

I played in the $6k guaranteed tourney on the iPoker network last night, and gave my monthly figure a nice boost with 4th place and a return of $400. I think I eventually played a little carelessly as it was already 1:30am and I was due up early for work in the morning. Plus the blinds had reached there maximum, so I had visions of people raising and folding until daybreak.

But still can't grumble and very pleased with the patience I showed during the middle stages of the tourney. Folding some normally playable hands when faced by big raises, instead of the reckless calls hoping for a little good fortune that I would normally make.

Maybe I have suddenly realised what the Gap Concept is ??

Hey,

I saw your post on another blog and figured I’d check yours out and give you a headsup about a WPT giveaway I’m running this year.

A lot of players want to participate in a 10K buyin event, but most lack the skills or experience, so if I gave that way it would be like giving away a lottery ticket. Unless they got very lucky they probably wouldn’t do much with it.

So I tried to come up with something that I felt would be a much better prize for the majority of poker players. I’m giving away a WPT Battle For The Season Pass III package this year on my site.

You can win a weeklong vacation in the Bahamas, training from the pros (over 20 in attendance last year) and entry into up to three tournaments while you’re down there. One of the tournaments is a 3-day deep-stacked event with a number of WPT, cash and boot camp prizes. The grand prize is a $100,000 WPT Season Pass plus $10K in cash for expenses.

You can use the WPT Season Pass to enter any World Poker Tour events you want (ten 10K events, a mix of 5K, 15K, etc)

The first free satellite is being held on Full Tilt Poker Sunday, February 10th, 2008 at 14:00 (2pm EST)

Right now there's only 34 players signed up, the top 4 advance to a single-table semi-final in February. The fields aren't going to get any smaller as word of this promotion spreads. So if you want in, you'll want to play some of the earlier events to have less competition.

Hope the tables & life are treating you well, and I hope you’ll take a shot at winning this prize!
