Last month of WSOP qualifying

Well so far no luck in my WSOP quest. Haven't posted much as i've been on such a downer. After posting my best month, May was my worst. I just sucked ass / ran bad in everythng. Started off June bad as well, but my last 2 sessions have gone ok. I turned down my aggro level a bit as the variance of playing that way gives you heart burn when things don't go right. Thats for NL, limit wise i'm just running super bad.

So here are my plans for WSOP qualifiers

Pokerroom - sats are super easy, I should have played these weekly. A qualifier everyday until the 15th. I can't make the weekday ones, but I should be able to play at least 3/4 weekend ones. Have 1 ticket right now.

PokerStars - I've given up on the steps. Sunday $650 25 seats are good value, just haven't been able to sat in. Will be playing the 200 seater $320 on the 15th.

Full Tilt - I think just the $500 150 seater on the 15th for me. Will try to sat in. BBT3 I just stunk it up. Two 2nd places in the final 2 weeks. Will play the subevent giveaway on the 8th though.

Mansion - Will play the 20seat $320 on the 15th

SunPoker - prob play the 1seat guarantee on the 8th. $220?

Betfair - 7 seat guarantee on the 15th is intriging. $500. 1st wins a wsope and wsop me seat. Will prob play

Action Poker Still have a step 7 to play. 10 person sng, winner gets seat. Sat or Sun night at 9pm. Prob is they hardly ever fill up.

Cake Poker Will continue playing these on Sunday. $215. Sat in with cake points if I have. Those sats are so bad though, players are awful.

ClubBluff ClubUBT skin from Bluff Magazine that uses subscripton style for buyins. ie) $20 a month will give you a bunch of points/freerolls. If i'm bored i'll try it out, theres a wsop me giveaway in a couple of weeks but need to sat in.

Will be playing in the P5 Open (stars, 1 seat added) on the 7th, and the PSO Absolute Poker seat giveaway on the 22nd. Played about 50 points yesterday (need 100 to qualify) and was prety easy. I so wish I had rakeback on here. I forgot about their double stack cash games.

Will prob skip

Everest - 10 seat on the 15th. $1000 buyin. If theres a good sat on the weekend i'll play, but the sats they have now are weekdays or just garbage (non guarantee, hardly ever reach min)

AP/UB - meh. If theres a big one coming up i'll play.

Party - I think they are on Fri. 6:30. Too early imo.

Hollywood - $320 if I sat. I recently had pokerroom and hollywood open at the same time, didnt' know you could do that. Not same tourney of course :)

Prima ones = meh

iPoker = don't like the satellite structures for any tournies on ipoker. Plus their jackpot sngs never run because the structures are so bad. 1000 starting chips.

Wish me luck!

I'll be there Aug 13 - Aug 17. Staying @ Bally's. Couple of free nights & then Casino rate. $220 for 5 nights. My poker time will be limited this trip as it's me and my wife going.

What price did you get at Bellagio?
