Right after I get back from the PokerStars Caribbean Classic (Jan 6-15), I'm heading up to Choctaw to take on the eastern Oklahoma farmers once again, repeating the same January schedule from 2011 when I finished 38th in Main Event (out of 808), proving once again JJ is no good, even when you flop top set against a backdoor flush draw (http://www.pokernews.com/live-report...ost.173942.htm).
In my opinion, and TXSooner & I can agree to disagree, but Choctaw is the softest tournament field you'll ever see (granted, Winstar and Choctaw share a lot of the same players). Last year's WSOPc in Choctaw had bigger fields than anticipated, and with the advertising they are doing this year I expect even bigger fields. I've played in 5 tournaments there with 3 cashes (and one bubble playing to win w/ QQ w/ 16 players left), including one final table and my deep run in last year's WSOPc Main.
This year I plan on playing Events 7 (1/18 $345 + 10), 10 (1/20 $345 + 10), & 11 (1/21 $1600 + 20 Main Event), for a total tournament investment of $2330. I'm offering pieces of myself at 1% for $30, in line with previous share offers.
Most of my large-field tournament experience has been online, although I have played 8 live with 5 cashes. Of those 8, 3 were WSOPc Main Events, where I had two deep runs into the money (16th in WSOPc Council Bluffs '10, 38th in WSOPc Choctaw '11).
My online tournament poker results:
18th/8861 FTOPS Event 11
21st/4684 FTOPS Event 13 (these two were the same day...sooooo close)
36th/4581 FTOPS Main Event
73rd/5225 FTOPS Main Event
12th/1107 Sunday $150
Obviously I have a lot more cashes (including 4 final tables and one win in smaller fields), but these are the major tournament deep runs. Overall I've finished in the top 2% of all online players in '08, '09, & '11.
My online cash game accomplishments:
Only relevant to show that I've got a ton of experience, with over 1 million hands played online.
While my cash graph is pretty solid, no poker player in the world has steady tournament results resembling that. Tournament poker is classic high-risk, high-reward, and any potential investor needs to acknowledge that. For any significant cash, investors will be responsible for their own portion of the taxes. I'll be collecting money via PayPal or BoA transfers, and will instruct any potential buyer via PM how to send money to avoid fees. Let's get this ball rolling!
