National Championship Time

By Karaoke Phil

It’s time.  Again.  I’m heading to Las Vegas today for the Free Poker Network (FPN) National Championship.  This one is their “Golden Ticket” promotion.  It’s my second consecutive National Championship – having played this past July in the “Vegas or Bust” promotion.
I didn’t do well at all in that first FPN Championship – finishing around 92nd out of the 99 players who showed up.  I look for a much better finish this time out.  It appears that there were 115 qualifiers for this Championship.  From what I’ve seen from FPN it looks like they are expecting around 95 to show. 
The last couple of weeks I have alternately played quite well and quite poorly.  I stood my own and then some in the $500 Big Turkey Tournament at Running Aces over the Thanksgiving Day weekend – finishing 5th and taking out two of the top tournament players in MN.  I have also been the 2nd one out in the Tournament of Champions home game that I play.  I have, however, and hopefully, learned from the bad play and will use that on Monday.
