MicroMillions II: Coimbra climbing but tiredness chasing

micromillions-thumb-blog.png"Even in my wildest dreams, never thought that I would actually take a quick shower during the 5 minute tournament break! It just happened :(" tweeted Andre 'acoimbra' Coimbra.

When you're trying to play 100 consecutive events across 11 days it's not just bad beats, ICM and sleep deprivation that you're trying to deal with but also the logistics of when to cook, how much to move and when to shower. It's a hard knock life but one that seems to now be paying off for Coimbra.

The Team PokerStars Online player is up to 24th on the MicroMillions Leader Board after 42 tournaments played clocking up 180 points.
