Bleh, I was looking forward to this tournament more then any other one of the series (besides the main event). I couldn’t get anything going. I had a really tough starting table which I was at for the whole day. Got sucked out on pretty hard with jacks for half my chips, then got sucked on out with top pair top kicker against the only weak player at the table. After that I was left with next to no chips and managed to get my money in good but lost a flip 99 < AJ. GG 5k 6max.
I have been playing ALOT of online poker lately. Basically my routine is wake up around 2pm. Reheat the breakfast made by the chef at 11am. Eat. Check e-mail. Go on the pool. Get on my laptop and play poker until all the roommates come home from grinding live tournaments (love you guys). I have to give them credit, especially Josh who has been putting in a ton of volume playing live tournaments. Speaking of Josh, he also has some pictures of the house we are renting on his blog so you should check it out – http://www.pokerismydayjob.com. He is a much better writer then me so def read his blog if you really want to understand the emotional ups and downs which I seem to mask during my daily life.
Back to the drawing board …

Played the 2500 buyin 6max event today, but busted rather quickly. Sometimes I’d rather be card dead at first in these events. I was seeing a ton of great starting hands but just couldn’t connect postflop with them.
Next tournament will probably be a 1500 this week. The trip so far has been great. My friends from NY visited all wk and James is still here. Actually on my way to meet him for lunch right now.
I promise to make my next entry longer, but the cash games have just been really soft and I can’t drag myself away from them.

Busted. 318th. I got myself in a great spot to have about chip average stack with about 8% of the field left. The only positive was that I just made it in the money. Next tournament seems to be on Friday.
Alot of my friends are visiting Vegas so I’ll be slacking on the updates this week.

Scout wasn’t happy with me not packing him in my luggage.

Still in. Survived my first Day1. woohoo. I am so tired. Deep thinking makes my body feel physically exhausted after 12hrs, does that make sense? Day 2 starts Monday at 2:30pm and I plan on just giving myself a mental rest until then. Alot of the guys are planning on playing online tournaments tomorrow at the house so I think it’s a good opportunity for me to absorb a bunch of valuable information from them.
Well thats it for now..

Im here. Finally.
Half the roomies got here last night and the other half will be arriving later today. The house is beautiful, just shy of 10k sq ft. The only thing I need now is my car which will be arriving in a few days (hopefully).
I plan on playing my first tournament either Friday or Saturday.
Stay tuned for more
