The Poker Mutant will be retiring (mostly) from poker on 1 January. This is the latest installment in his thrilling countdown to the End of Times.
Did an Ignition Casino NLHE Jackpot Sit-n-Go after I got home from Portland Meadows, got a 5x modifier and busted third.
Decided to take a shot at this weekend’s $100K on Ignition, jumped into an evening 4-Seat GTD NLHE Satellite. Didn’t get far. Played a $1K GTD NLHE Turbo and ended in a queens versus ace-king flip.
Four more Jackpot Sit-n-Gos in a row: won the first two, then got two 5x payouts in a row and lost both of them.
It’s another WPT Bellagio Five Diamond title for the Pacific Northwest as Coeur D’Alene-based Dylan Linde took the title with a cash that nearly doubled his already-impressive earnings.
Bend’s Seth Davies struck big at Bellagio, too, with a 3rd place in the 47-entry Event #2 $25K NLHEand a win four days later in Event #28 $25K NLHE (50 entries).
Over at the Venetian, Scott Clements won Event #15 $150K GTD NLHE, with 576 entries.
And last, but not least, Lake Oswego’s Max Brown got 4th in the Run It Up Stones $100K GTD NLHE Main Event, at Stones Gambling Hall outside Sacramento.
One Month Three Weeks One Hundred 98 Kay The Twelve Days of $95K
I did manage to get a win at Final Table last Friday, so my target is a wee bit closer, but the opportunities are pretty slim at this point. Picked up another little cash online at Ignition Casino Sunday night; missed in PLO8 Monday at Claudia’s and busted not even close to the money at the huge $4K at Portland Meadows on Wednesday.
I’m heading down to Las Vegas on the 29th for the Venetian $260K GTD NLHE, last bit game of the year.
Only a Day Away
- The last event (ever) on my calendar is the Venetian Deepstacks Extravaganza V. Which starts today. There’s a $100K GTD the first weekend, and a $260K GTD Monster Stack just before the New Year’s ($400 buyin).
- This Sunday is the Muckleshoot Casino NLHE Deepstack ($300 buyin), with the $3K Added NLHE 5th Sunday ($400) coming up on the 30th. Both start at 10:15am.
- The Tulalip Casino $10K Added NLHE is $220 for entry (with $10 dealer add-on) on Sunday, 30 December, at 11am. They still don’t have the schedule for next month’s Pow Wow on their poker room page. I hate casino web sites.
