LOL WCOOP 10000 Event

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Sep 07, '08

This hand took place today in the 10000 dollar WCOOP (World Championship of Online Poker) Highrollers event on Pokerstars. It was the twelfth hand of the tournament. It's a shame because I was really looking forward to playing this one. This kind of stuff happens though, and I'm lucky I'd been able to avoid one of these nightmare, early hands in all of the other big buy in events that I've played to this point in my career. I do remember at the 2006 CPC event in the Bahamas having to sweat a freeroll twenty minutes into the 5000 dollar event. I got red AA vs black AA AIPF and was tortured by a flop of all clubs. We chopped that hand. Gonna try to shake this one off. I'll add more to this entry later tonight after I play some more tournaments.
