A Journey to the WSOP Main Event
 
My efforts to satellite into the Main Event begin today.

I started well with an $8.80 Double Shootout for the $216 Double Shootout Seat and managed to win. The $216 Double Shoot-Out will pay a seat package for first and cash for a few placings.

I went $14+1 to an $18k Package for Aussie Millions a little over a year ago for my last seat package.

Can I do the miraculous and win a third Seat Package in only my fifth serious attempt to Satellite into a major live tournament?

This thread chronicles my attempts to qualify for the granddaddy of them all, the greatest tournament in the world, the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event.

My $216 Satellite gets underway in three minutes.

There are three notable sharks I have marked in the field, Allinwitdabest, Avril Sharapova and Jarred 'FlopNutsOnYou' Graham who was at my table during the Hachem Deepstack Main Event.

Feel free to join me on the rail throughout my quest over the coming weeks (or hopefully hours) and post your experiences as you join me in the quest to qualify for the World Series of Poker Main Event

Let's do it!

Edit: Thread was successful. My shot calling skills are available for others for a minor +rep fee :)

Also, TWLLM and Kid Hustlr have 1% of me in the ME for their help along the way and TJTay has 0.1% for being my first railbird anmd DoubleU gets 0.1% for first post in the thread.

Is this lol live poker, or an online sat? In any case, gl :smile:

SwoopAE Mar 25, 2009 7:34pm

...and we're seated!

We have 81 entries in our double shootout.

Payout structure is $12k Package for the win, $2100 second, $1260 third, $840 fourth.

I have a late registering shark dipthrong and a random Brazilian FTOPS winner at my table and some other names I mildly recognise but don't have notes on BraveJayHawk, globaldominate and Mclovinlovin.

Overall, probably an average table in this field. Three red pros have also signed up for glory but I can't seem to see any at my table.

Here we go!

Online Satellite @ Full Tilt, i'm SwoopAE if anyone wants to watch and/or slander opponents for me.

I started the epic rail thread early because i'm going to win.

SwoopAE Mar 25, 2009 7:36pm

After six hands, I am only one of two players not to see a flop at my table. I am therefore the table nit.

SwoopAE Mar 25, 2009 7:38pm

We have an elimination at another table!

The Fiend 34 has been sent to the rail and I have now outlasted about 1.2% of the field and counting.

SwoopAE Mar 25, 2009 7:40pm

Action at Table 2!

A poorly timed semi-bluff and we are now EIGHT HANDED in PHASE ONE of this DOUBLE SHOOTOUT

STAY TUNED FOR EPIC UPDATES WHEN/IF I PLAY A HAND

I am a hero for making brave bluffs. Applaud my genius as I continue to crush donkeys enroute to the GRANDDADDY OF THEM ALL, THE WORLD SERIES OF POKER MAIN EVENT!!!

In a major update, I am now listening to the latest Foo Fighters album. Their words will guide me to the ultimate victory.

SwoopAE Mar 25, 2009 7:48pm

With SEVENTY (70) entrants remaining, I am THIRTY SECOND (32nd) in the chip counts.

There are still eight players remaining at my table. Seven shall fall. One shall succeed.

Hint: I will survive and destroy the opponents
