But the first time I've taken a first place in about three weeks.

A few years ago I wrote about my observation that having an "average" stack in a poker tournament puts one ahead of more than half of the field, which, on first blush, is a counterintuitive proposition. See here and here for the full explanation, along with examples taken from chip counts at the World Series of Poker to illustrate the point.

Last night (August 7) I used BCP's document-submission web page to send them a scan of my license and a signed copy of their identity verification form. I did not include any credit card information, since the funds I used to start my recent balance build-up were not a card payment, but rather a transfer from another player, as explained here.

Last night (August 6) I submitted a request for $700. This is the only withdrawal option, and they charge a $15 fee for it. No "one free per month" like other sites tend to do.

Now I want you to win another token. And then play another tourney. Having a small party for evan's bday, which is actually tomorrow, so I won't be around until early evening my time. Like not before 7pm. Don't let that stop you from doing your thang though. It would be great if you had your token won by 7pm so I can watch you play a big tourney with sharks. I fully expect the bloodshed to be shark blood.
1.) Win the token
2.) Win big cash in a big tourney
Hop to it!

OK, I'm about halfway through both tournaments that I started right after last post. In the $33 HORSE, 27 started, 14 left, I'm in 3rd place. Four spots pay, ranging from $105 to $324.
Cuz this one is coming down to the wire.
Bob Ciaffone is a columnist for Card Player magazine. In his column for the July 25 issue, he is describing a cash game in which he played recently:
About an hour later, I got all-in onA-K again (this time unsuited) in a three-way pot against Q-Q and 2-2. Trip deuces won this pot and I "won" the show pool.
I had another min-cash in a Black Chip Poker tournament this afternoon. It was an especially frustrating one because when we got into the money, I had the biggest stack. But then I misplayed a couple of hands and got unlucky in a third, and I was the first one out after the bubble. GAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Well, my way sure hasn't been working to get me any significant progress towards that elusive $1200 and batch of brownies, with the deadline looming tomorrow. So I might as well try it her way.
