Fire away

Full Tilt decided to copy Poker Stars and add a Steps system for tournaments.

So, I decided to give it a whirl to see if I could climb the ladder. Besides, I was catching up on TV.

They even have a "Step 0" which starts at $1.10. The highest step tourney, Step 7, has a buyin of a ticket for $2100 that awards a 12K tournament package, currently for the WSOP.

So, let's have some fun.

Step 0, #155392032: Begun 11:13 PM, Finished 1/99, Win Step 1 Ticket ($3.30)
Step 1, #155400775: Begun 12:13 AM, Finished 1/9, Win Step 2 Ticket ($8.70)
Step 2, #155401845: Begun 12:46 AM, Finished 1/9, Win Step 3 Ticket ($26.00)

Rather than try to push forward and press my luck, I'm heading to bed. Not bad for about 90 minutes work.

More to try tomorrow. Step 4 ticket is $75, Step 5 is $216, Step 6 is $240, and Step 7 is $2100.

Or, I could drop out now, since I have the equivalent of a token to enter any tournament with a $24+2 buyin.

Step 8 would mean a very unlikely return to Las Vegas.

For the record, you DAMN RIGHT I'd go.
