Played the PokerPlayer GUKPT freeroll last night and won it! 1st out of 550 runners for a GUKPT main event seat worth £1,070!!
Got about 5 hours sleep last night, the adrenaline was flowing so much. I used my ‘one time’ and won a huuuuge flip with three left - AK binking a King on the turn v JJ. They only paid 5 places with the second and third receiving £150 tournament tokens. The heads up was pretty awesome – not often I will be playing heads up for £1K. It was even better as the guy I was against seemed pretty clueless. I started the heads up with a 2:1 chip lead and ground it out quickly to win pretty comfortably.
The only slight issue is that the GUKPT seat was intended for Walsall which starts this Friday! To play on Friday I would piss off the following in this order of importance:-Girlfriend
– drag her to Walsall when I was meant to be spending some time with the inlaws. Parents
– was supposed to be home for mothers day with the whole familyJob
– no chance of getting the Friday off work so would have to be ‘creative’
I have been speaking to the Poker Manager of the GUKPT this morning in the hope that I can swap my seat to a later event. I have asked for Coventry in August. I don’t think that will be a problem but if it is then I am not going to be very popular.
Eitherway – I am going to be playing a GUKPT! An introduction to the big league...
