Got bored so I thought I would play a $330 Sng. Way above my online roll but I figured it was worth a shot. Extremely tight play, so I was able to steal with ease. I guess nordberg put me on a steal and didnt give much credit. All the chips went in on the flop and this pushed me into the chip lead. I eventually placed 2nd after a push fest heads up that last about 15 mins.

2 quick updates:
WSOP 1K ME Qualifier - 31/90 - never got anything going. Went out when in the 3 rd hour when cutoff pushed allin (3K), I called with A10 (I had 5.5K) because I read him desparate but the BB pushed and had me covered. I called my 2.5k getting 6 to 1 but knowing I was toast. Sure enough the cutoff had 10-4 and the BB had AQ.
Riverchasers - I sucked out huge against AA and then went on to amass a huge stack (23K) until $mokee showed up at my table. I then proceed to double him up and then double up 4 consective people, each time I got my chips in as dominant favorite and each time nadda. I once again hit a string of cards back to 21K, then back to 15K, then back 21K then back to 15k. On the hand after I busted out of the $1K, I woke up on the Button with KsQs, I popped it $moke min reraised and I called. Flop gave me 2spades and gutshot, I pushed with 12 outs twice (Flush and Gutshot), $moke called with AAs, Q on the turn gave me 2 outs but nada on the river and boom I am done.
I then procede to my local home game and took out my anger on them.
Have a great weekend.

Well I qualified for the $1K WSOP ME satellite on my first try. Here are a few random pics, with just some random comments
The hand below the button raised and I put them on a steal, so I re-raised and he called. The call screamed weakness to me, so I assumed my top pair on the flop was good. I bet enough to commit him and as you can see I was basically drawing dead on the flop. Bad read by me but I still had 20x the blinds.
Here was the hand I decided to go with. Given the uber aggressiveness of the small blind I didn't think twice about getting it all in preflop. He did have a better hand than I gave him credit for but fortunately the Queens held.
The hand below I think I might have played different but my thoughts at the time were this. I have a chance to take someone out for only about 20% of my stack. The guy had just lost the majority of his stack a few hands earlier and could be pushing with complete air, in which the majority of the time I am a 60/40 or even a 80% against a lower pair. As you can see I had to suck out and we were on the bubble.
This was the final hand, I raised and he pushed preflop. I was willing to gamble since I had really big stack. I figured I was racing and with a 40X the blinds even after the call I was willing to take my chances.
Hopefully I can seal the deal tonight and head back to the big show
