Well here we is, the day of my first-ever NHCQualify.com contest, ain't it thrilling. I'm hoping some beginner's luck will carry the day for me.
The 30th-place person from the April 4 NHCQ contest finished with $77, so I guess that's a decent estimate of what it will take to advance. $77 doesn't sound like all that much but it essentially is a doubling of your $40 betting allowance, so needless to say, I need to have a very good day.
I entered my picks early (in case my internet goes down or something) as follows:
Kee5: Tasty Temptation
SA2: Samantha's Rule
Kee7: Storm Treasure
Kee8: I Lost My Choo
Kee9: Join in the Dance
SA5: Luhuk's Dancer
SA6: Stormy Slew
SA7: Arden Park
I'll be reviewing more over the course of the afternoon and up until post time, I imagine I'll call at least a few audibles and change stuff on the fly.
