Trying to pull away from playing more poker yet with the Mastodon weekend in Greenville, SC and a trip to Vegas next month along with the below going ons at Full Tilt and PokerStars have me throwing my bankroll onto the virtual felts.
Full Tilt has FTOPS MCDLXVIII going on and after checking out the final table of the PLO event the sites flagship tournament series is running as strong as ever. Yes, RUSH POKER (a.k.a. freebase virtual crank) is still giving me fits and excitement. Even after six years of playing a game with the largest dollar amount swings, Rush Poker still has my head spinning from the peaks and valleys. But, for a full-time worker, parent of two, and soon-to-be student (pending finanical aid and transcript review) it brings the condensed full session of 500-1000 hands in a matter of one or two hours depending if I throw in a second table or even a third with 6-max PLO.
One other promo you may want to check out the Big Little Tournament with a 200K guarantee for just two bucks AND its a turbo meaning this guy can slide in the play before work at the PokerStarsBlog tonight SCORE!
At PokerStars the milestone race is on as the 40th Billion hand promo has a giveaway with every millionth hand getting a slice of money multiplied by according to how many VPPs you've earned. The true grinder will be walking away with a hefty score after that. Also there's a chance for the low roller to get some high stakes action as a $40 buy in will get you into a $1 million guarantee tournament at 1:30 CST this afternoon.
If you're the live playing sort then a trip north to Mille Lacs Grand Casino for the conclusion of the Minnesota State Poker Tour $1K Bracelet event today because I suck at life I am not attending today and will be huddled under a blanket and laptop instead of having fun with like-minded degenerates.
