"I must create a system, or be enslaved by another man's."- William BlakeVisit the Tao of Poker to read about how I won a tournament last night on Party Poker. It was a single table tournament and I beat out 9 other people to win a seat in the $600 Aussie Million Satellite on Wednesday night on Party Poker. If I win that tournament... then I win an all expenses paid trip to Melbourne and the infamous Crown Casino to play in the 2005 Australian Poker Championships. Here's a bit of what I wrote:
I never been there before. I'm always looking for excuses to travel to exotic lands and get obliterated in dive bars while hitting on the local soused female population. But hey, let's not shoot my entire load before I even get the condom on...In case you were wondering, USD = US Dollars and AUD = Australian Dollars. If I win on Wednesday, I will get to play in two different events next January! Let's see if I can catch enough cards and bluff my way to Australia to try to win a Million Kangaroo bucks.
Here's what I have a shot at winning on Wednesday:
1. Entry to the AUD $1,600 World Speed Poker Championship (USD $1,150 approx.)
2. Entry to the AUD $10,300 NL Hold'em Tournament (USD $7,400 approx.)
3. Hotel accommodation and USD $2,500 cash to cover my airfare.
