There's a guy playing it from my hometown (or at least where I've been living for the past 15yrs.). I discovered this when my neighbour told me about a friend of his having won a WSOP MnEv. pkg. in that Pokerstars
200seat guar. tourney. I scrolled the lobby & found who I thought was 'the guy.. his 'friend' ' but it turned out the guy I found was 'another guy' who is also from here (town/City of only ~7,000 pop., everyone knows everyone..... or at least knows someone from their family).
So... I run this 'other guy's ' name on Google, find him on P5's, & see that he's an MTT reg., playing avg. buyin $50+ with over 2,500 mtt's played. Search him some more & see that he's up in profit well over $100k ("stake me please!!",
lol, joking... sort of). Then with his Stars sn I think... "hmm... perhaps that's part of his last name?" So I pull out the phone book & sure enough it is (I find him there). I pm him & discover he's made it through Day1 with ~45,000 chips so I'll be following his progress for Day2.
Kind of weird how it came about... hoping I've made a new contact to 'talk poker' with here in my area (not too many here who I speak with about it... actually really only one guy & he multi-tables PLO cash tables at limits way higher than I ever play & we don't share too much in common aside from suffering badbeats & making the odd score, lol.). Hoping I've made myself a new, local nlhe MTT contact (which could be very cool!!).
Wondering how onlybridge is doing? Does anyone have an update on him?
