MicroMillions II: Coimbra quarter of the way through his challenge
Andre 'aocimbra' has just tip-toed through the quarter way point of his 100 event challenge and he's still going strong, but with a week and 75 round-the-clock tournaments left he's going to need all the strength he can muster. He's managed four cashes so far putting himself in a solid 216th place on the MicroMillions II Leader Board upon which a top 50 finish guarantees you a minimum of $215 extra. One deep finish which rocket him into that freebie fifty.
In his day 3 recap acoimbra explains how he's managing to get get sleep by using late registration to get some extra rest when the previous tournaments haven't gone so well, and also talks through his Boom! hand of the day where he flops trips aces.
