Got my $10k back :)



Not too bad of a comeback. Was about a bit under average when the $ bubble broke. After at one point got down to 1.5BB. A few double ups and some weird non calls, I was back up to a decent stack. With about 30 left I was amongst the chip leaders, and started the final table 2/10. Let some other guys battle it out, and stayed out of the path of the cl. Won some pots here and there, chip leads kept changing hands. Lost a bunch when my set was overturned by a river flush. Battled back and with 4 left was the chip leader 1.2 - 800k - 800k - 200k. Though I got lucky though as Ax > TT. A few double ups by the little stack and at one point, all of us were about even. 3/4 of us played pretty tough poker, resteals galore so chips were moving. 4th place was eliminated, can't remember the hand now. A bowed out when I tried a resteal with A4, but ran against 88. 4 on the turn, but blank river. Had a feeling I was going to have a nice score today, though in honesty I thought it would be in the 2million+ tourney on Pokerstars. KK < AA to an uber donk killed those dreams. Also played a €100k on Poker Heaven (Boss), which I dominated but just ran so bad late.

Bye!

A few parting comments before I leave Vegas. Yes unfortunately my time here will be cut way short. Stomach flu or something like that has got me tilted. Can't keep anything in, and don't feel like playing a tournament like this. Wanted to play the Caesars deep stack today, and if I did well would play the main event on Tues. Kinda pissed, I'll only end up playing the one tournament here, and that didn't last too long. Oh well, next year.

I just also wanted to say thanks to Pokerroom. Their first impression wasn't that great, communication was horrible. I had no idea what i was supposed to do, and when I arrived at Mandalay Bay, was just praying that there was a room for me here.

Well there was, plus more. A huge basket full of snacks was waiting here for me. Unfortunately I did not get notice that there was a greeting party that night, and I arrived late for it. So never got my duffel bag full of clothes, will just settle for one hoodie instead. Part of the package pokerroom offered their players were complimentary events including: Hoover Dam visit, Grand Canyon tour, 18 holes and desert sands, various parties and more. They made sure you had a good time here, and made sure you always had plenty to drink!

wsop Busto

I guess better go out early than bubble, but still feels pretty shitty.

Got up to about 25k early. Limped JTs, next player raises 3x, a couple calls and i call. Flop AKsx. Somehow checked around. Turn Q, sweet. I lead out for 750 into 1200. Original raiser calls, fold, fold. Turn is a blank, I bet out 1500 and he calls. Flips over AA. If I had knew would have tried taking more. Very surprised he played it so passively.

Lost a lot of chips when i raised utg with AA and was smoked by QTo with a river straight.

Final hand was limp, limp, I raise it up with KK on the bottom. Fold, call. Flop Q88. He bets out 2/3 here, I raise, he reraises, and I just shove, and he calls. Dominated by A8. I guess i was still deep enough to get away from this, but couldn't find a fold.

Will prob hang around here for a bit longer, play some other tournies. Caesars etc. Will keep you guys updated on the other stuff

WSOP Update Wed July 2

So I arrived last night. Too tired to do anything, so stayed at Mandalay Bay. Found out that the pokerroom info/party was that night but started at 5. Ran over to the hall where it was up, luckily it was just finishing. Got some stuff, but still not much info, like when I would be playing. Ended the night just playing some tight ass 1/2 at MBay.

Went to the Rio today. Had some meetings. Played a quick satellite. Played some 10/20limit. Went to check WSOP registration to see if I was registered!

So low and behold I am playing tomorrow, Thursday! Thanks pokerroom for letting me know, I still don't have the duffel bags with all the clothing.
