Ship the EPT Barcelona Package

On Sunday I was planning on trying to qualify for Atlantis, I plan on playing it either way but figured satelliting in would save me some money. I talked with Harry (ugotabanana who is actually headed to Vienna as I'm writing this) and he mentioned that he was going to Barcelona. It sounds like an awesome city so I figured taking one shot at it would be cool. So I joined the €535 on Sunday afternoon and started off. I got a little lucky in the beginning but was able to navigate down to the final 12 with 11 getting seats. Then I did something I never thought I'd do at a poker table, I folded pocket Kings preflop.

I had about 40k at 800/1600 with four people at 25k or less. The chip leader at my table was shoving every hand pretty much and there were two black kings staring me in the face. I realize it was an easy decission to fold but being a HU player and struggling to fold any pair PF let along the second strongest starting hand was brutal for me. Fortunately the last player was knocked out a few hands later and I won my package to Barcelona. I'm actually selling 50% of myself here in case anyone is interested in buying a piece of me.

After I won the seat I was so excited I texted most of my friends and was on phone for a while as I was receiving calls. So yeah it goes without saying I'm super excited and hope I run really well. A word of advice to tourney players, this GIF will make you run really really well.

 This video is so great it has so much win in it. This was right after the guy in the front row in the jersey may have illegally interfered with Nelson Cruz but they called it a home run anyways. The things I love about it.

- The guy flipping off Cruz

- 2 father son combos. One telling the kid why Cruz was mad at the fan. The other showing the his son the fan flipping off Cruz.

- The dude in the glasses in the background politely clapping.

- The snooki lookalike

- And my favorite is the fat guy in the Yankees sweatshirt and sweatpants just repeatedly yelling "Fuck you, Fuck you Cruz". I laugh harder every time I rewatch him.

As far as my WS prediction, I really don't care who wins. Off the cuff I'm picking Rangers in 5. They just match the Giants pitching wise and can hit much better. Lee wins both his starts and they get 2 wins from Wilson, Lewis, and Hunter/Holland. Of course world's are colliding since I was 3-0 in the NL predictions and 0-3 in my AL predictions. Rooting for the Giants but see the Rangers winning, if not in 5 in 6.

---------------------------------

Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all time thing. You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

If you get a chance when you are in Barcelona make sure you check out the Nou Camp, epic stadium.
