  • missed out by 4 minutes.

    I was playing in 2 tournaments 1 that I finished early, and got my VPPs I was trying to get before midnight for my 20VPPS required for the premiere league. 1 tourney, I lasted just 4 minutes past midnight, not giving me the 5.5 VPPs until after I was out 4 minutes after midnight, and now, even if I did make it, I didn't reach the 20 VPPs, so looks like I'll be playing in open league, and basically just wasted $20 trying to get my VPPs in case I made it

    Think I'll take the time this month to see if I can earn the 150 VPP level, and play for the top 500 to catch a top level prem league ticket for september.

    Guess that means my top 1500 spot will be up for grabs. Maybe I'll see you all in premiere league for September. GL to all my friends.

Especially seeings how I bought in to the 2 tourneys before midnight, so they had their money from me well before midnight, don't know why they can't issue the VPPs after the tourney starts. In this case, it's costing me a month in the premiere league, and another month of playing with donkeys, being stressed out "when donks catch".

      To those of you who decide to stay in open league, looking for an easy month, guess again, the only sanity has now left all tables in the open league, this is going to be like playing bingo, where none of the numbers on your card are in the ball hopper.

      Last off I'd like to give a hats off to 1 player, for telling me my hand was not a bad beat, and just last week, they posted a hand in the bad beats thread that was the exact same hand, and situation that my bad beat was, you must be pretty special to be the monopolizer of bad beats on that hand and yet, telling me that my hand wasn't 1 with exact same situation. Let me guess, it's only a bad beat when you are the 1 on the recieving end???..........
