The World Cup of Poker (WCP) is an annual event held by PokerStars. In Canada, each province gets a team formed of the top 2 finishers of the pevious year's Tournament Leader Board (TLB) plus 2 winners of freeroll qualifiers. I finished 144th on the yearly TLB last year which was enough to earn me the 2nd spot on Team Newfoundland (I have no idea who finished above me from the province). There are a few online qualifier rounds starting this Sunday and if we make it through both rounds we get to represent Canada in Barcelona. Free trip and accomodations at the beginning of September and the winning team of the live competition gets the prestige of World Cup champions as well as $20K/player, which I would then lose at WSOP Europe! So it should be fun maybe we'll get lucky and make the live part. I think the freeroll qualifers are still open so locals get in there I need some good teammates to score a free trip with (edit: actually looks like they already happened) .
I played Sundays online obviously and finished 15th in the big $100 rebuy and 8th in $200 rebuy for $6K. For some reason I played the high stakes showdown 16 player heads up tournament which has a $10K buy-in though and got destroyed in the first round. It's very unlikely I'm a winning player in this tournament so I need to not play it anymore. It's so tempting though. Fortunately I'm still running good in the 25/50 games on Cake Poker though so I recovered my losses and then some. I also played some tournaments tonight and finished 6th in the $100 rebuy for $4K. So I'm running semi-good in the rebuys lately except for the closing them part. That's all I got for now, peace.
