Made The Final 18 Of The Bodog Mini Poker Series Final Tomorrow. 1st Place Gets $12,000 Prize Package. Let's Light This Candle...

After an interesting semi-final tournament last night, I made it to the Bodog Mini Poker Series Final (see below for details).  There were about 120 runners last night and I started out red hot.  In the first 20 minutes I became the chip leader after doubling up with an open-ended straight flush draw that filled, then doubled again with a set of 8's against a dude super happy with his top pair 9s with Jack kicker.  I held the chip lead for quite a while, but eventually couldn't get any traction and lost it due to the rising blinds and other stacks building up.

I did manage to build my stack in the later stages of the tournament, but ultimately bubbled the final table, finishing in 10th place.  I was fine with that result as the top 18 finishers made it to the final.  Only 1st place tacked on another $270 in tourney credits, so I didn't lose any sleep in my 10th place finish.  If I understand this correctly, there should only be 18 runners and the top 9 get prizes, with 1st taking down a $12,000 prize package to the WSOP 2010.  I wouldn't mind getting in on that action.

One last note before I go.  I ended up at the same table as NewInNov for quite a while.  I haven't played onrine poker with him in a long time, so it was good to chat while donking it up on the felt.  He played well, but missed the cut-off for the final 18.  Okay I'm on vacation so I gotta roll.  We are off to see the alligators at Alligator Adventure.  Hope I don't lose my raise/fold button clicking finger in an alligator attack.  And with that...

Until next time, may the felt be with you.

Looks like I was wrong...there are already 72 players registered for the final, so it is not just 18 players to navigate through. I'm still pumped about my chances...
