Woohoo! Qualified for the WBCOOP final!

Finished 48/~400 in the PLO split. Not a bad effort, considering I was playing distracted (i.e working) most of the time, and missed maybe 30% of the hands. I started in my lunch hour and bumbled along happily at a very weak tight table. I stole a lot of pots PF and on the flop, and also made a few good showdown hands.

I actually was very well placed with about 50 places left (got up to $45k chips), and lost a couple of huge hands to go out. Was very close to grabbing a step 2 ticket on top of the final ticket.

And me ... congratulations. You probably took me out along the way.

I blew my chance yesterday. 9000+ with blinds of 100/200 I was double the average stack. I could have sat back but got involved in 2 top hands that I didn't need to.

Exited approx 110th when I could have walked away and qualified. I had decided to take a risk to get well into the top 45, I regret it now.

I had shown a lot of discipline up to that point and there were many spots that I would have shoved in a Ring game.

Congrats again and hopefully we'll all see you in the Final.
