Final Table

July 6, 2010

8th place for 79k … Was a very boring/exciting final table. Boring in a sense of not being able to actually play since the stacks were all so short, and exciting because I was all in pretty often.

Thanks to everyone for the support, I couldn’t have asked for a better rail. I am obviously dissapointed, but it was my fifth wsop event I played this summer and I was fortunate enough to final table. Just upset I wasn’t the chosen one for the day =)

Back to the grinddddddd….
Playing main event day1c on Wednesday, wish me luck!

Weeeee Final Table time!

July 5, 2010

I somehow am 4th in chips with only 25 bigblinds .. what a shallow structure.  meh.  The play is terrible and I really can’t complain.  I got myself in a great spot, and I just need to best a few more people to become “the chosen one” as one of my rooommates refers to it.  =)

See ya at the Rhino hopefully!! Play starts up around 6pm est.

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.

Venetian Deep Stack

July 1, 2010

Busted after playing a little over 10hrs. Sigh. I am tired and have a massive headache. F live poker. I jotted down a few hands I thought I could have played better to discuss w my roommates. I will post them cause they are cool hands, but I am not going to go into any analysis.

Level 2: Blinds 100-200 15k effective stacks

I have AJhh new player opens utg2 to 600 I call in hijack euro in cutoff 3bets to 1950 the button flats utg2 flats I flat Kh7h3c .. utg2 Checks I check euro bets 6100 two folds to me and I jam. He called and held with AKo.

Clubs clubs clubs

June 30, 2010

In the past week or so I think I have been to more clubs then I frequent in a years worth of time. But hey, that’s Vegas right? Been having a blast. Brooke is here and my boy Joe was out here last week. We partied at XS, Surrender, Playboy Club, Ghost Bar, LAX and few other spots. The best nights were by far at LAX and Surrender.

Oh yeah, let me talk about poker for a bit even though I am almost pokered out. Although I have lost all 5 of the biggest pots I have played in the cash games I am still doing pretty well on this trip and am booking a mid 5 figure win so far.

Brooke flies home tomorrow and after that I plan on playing out the rest of the series including a 2100 deepstack at the Venetian. I am pretty excited for that especially since 95% of the wsop events aren’t deepstacked. I seem to have most of my tournament success in deepstacked events. Since you start with more chips it benefits the skilled players and allows them to absorb a bad beat and not instantly be out of an event.

The heat is def starting to get to me. The past couple days have been exceptionally hot, like scorching pavement if you dare walk barefoot anywhere outside. Doing the whole GTL thing today minus the G and T =)

Having dinner later tonight with Brooke, my cousin who moved out here from NY and his girlfriend.
