I scooped up a Mirage Poker Showdown 10k seat last night in the final 1k mega-satellite. 40 people entered, 4 seats were given away and I was lucky enough to take one down. I don't consider myself an expert satellite player, but I was very happy with how I played except for one mistake I made on the bubble. The satellite lasted until 2:30 a.m. and the tournament begins today at noon, so I don't have a lot of time to write.
Rumor is that there are only going to be approximately 350 players registered, so the field should be both manageable and challenging at the same time. This will be the third "major" (WSOP ME, PCA) I've played, and I'm looking forward to playing my best game.
I'm sure I won't be covered by any poker news site, but I'll try to get some updates on FCP.
