40th in the Million Dollar Freeroll


How do MTT pros do it? For those that don't know about it, Pokerstars holds a quarterly 1 million dollar freeroll for their Supernova players. A little less than 5000 people entered, and I decided to take a break from my break from poker and play it. (Did that make sense?). It's now 8am, and I busted in 40th for 1890. It was 150k for the win. I feel pretty shattered. How do people play MTTs for a living?

It's now back to grad school applications. I am hoping to finish them by Tuesday, then I will start a new poker challenge. It will be something along the lines of 1000 Super Turbos, 10000 hands of Rush Poker, and 10000 hands of PLO. I played some 1/2 PLO today during the freeroll, and won 200, but ran 1000 below EV. I forgot how much fun it is.

My next post will be only after I finish my applications. Then it's time for the new challenge!


  1. still a good result?

    Have looked, have no idea whats wrong with my layout. Will try deleting and adding your blog again

  2. think i've got it now, just removed it and added it again

  3. not fun to play 8 hours and miss out on a huge score. 2k is better than nothing though.

  4. Where's my cut for sweating? Bullsh*t.

    P.S. I took your advice and am now using a second browser so I can comment on your blog. Feel special.

  5. Baron, your cut is lots of good karma and run good. How can I not feel special when the great Baron comments on my blog??
