Run Good 3

By Pauly
New York City

I pulled a Vinny Vinh on Saturday. No, no. I wasn't doing what you were thinking... smoking crystal meth inside a dumpster behind Bed Bath and Beyond.

Rather, I was at Yankee Stadium with Derek. It would be our last game at Yankee Stadium and the second-to last game ever held there. Tickets weren't cheap. They were a birthday present. I had a difficult decision to make... money or baseball.

I chose baseball and missed out on a shot at free money courtesy of PokerListings' Run Good Challenge Event #3.

Alas, I sat out. Posted and folded. But something magically happened. My empty chair went deep and finished in 7th place. I outlasted almost half the field including Change100. Since I had a 2nd and 4th place finish int he first two events, I finished up with enough points to qualify for the final event. Shamus won Event #3 and finished near the top of the standings.

Check out Matt's recap of Event #3.
The Standings
Shamus - 14 points
Dan Skolovy - 12 points
Amy Calistri - 8 points
Your Hero - 8 points
Michele Lewis - 6 points
Change 100 4 points
Spaceman - 4 points
Spaceman and Change100 have to play heads up for the last official qualifying spot for Event #4. That's TBD.

The final event will be held next Saturday. Although I'll be flying from Amsterdam to London that afternoon I expect to arrive in time to play. I'm crashing with Change100 and Gloria's rented flat in Covent Gardens.

Thanks again to the gang at PL for the invite.
