Carbon Poker $1K NLHE 6-Max (T3,000)
I hadn’t played on Carbon for a while since it wasn’t particularly easy to get money on there any more, but they sent me a $5.50 tournament coupon to entice me back in at the beginning of their latest tournament series. Since I wasn’t out at Wildhorse for the Poker Round-Up this weekend (and because I was supposed to be finishing up a project tonight instead of out playing poker), I gave it a whirl. It didn’t go so well.
