Made Day 3 of the $2,500

July 4, 2010

Starts up at 6pm est.  We just finished a grueling day 2, I chipped up from 27k to 302k and I am probably somewhere in the top 20 of 74 left.  Gonna go relax for a bit and then get some much needed sleep.  I ended up staying up til 9am grinding some fish on poker stars last night so I didn’t get much sleep before day 2.  I turned a meh-ish month into a really good month this past week online and I hope I can carry that momentum into day 3 and then the main.

I’ll try and post updates during the breaks between levels tomorrow.
