I had another deep run in a WSOP $1k/$1500 event. I've gotten 25th, 33rd and now 116th in huge fields at the WSOP. In 2007, 2009, and now 2010. This tournament went well for me. I was talking to my roommate and I realized that on Day 1 I only lost one showdown all day. I doubt I got to showdown more than 5-7 times throughout day one. I also didn't see aces the whole tournament. That doesn't really matter but I think it can definitely factor in at some point. I never woke up with a hand when a player was all in today. I battled hard and eventually moved all in for 34k at 1500/3000/400a in 2nd position with ATcc. The guy in 4th position tank called with 99 and I lost the race which would have put me at about 80k and in awesome shape.
I'm really happy with how I'm playing NLH tournaments. Hopefully I can run well and win the big flips when they matter/get some coolers/etc. I've still made some mistakes but luckily they have been small ones and haven't cost me my tournament. I am going to skip tomorrows $2500 PLO event. I didn't like how they did the $1500 event so I'm just not going to play it. If it was 6 handed I definitely would play. I will play again on Wednesday in the $1500 NLH WSOP event.
Tomorrow I will probably just hang out and relax by the pool, workout, and find a place to watch the Lakers vs Celtics game. I'm hoping the Lakers win. I made a small bet with a friend on the series. I typically NEVER bet sports or anything like that but a small bet doesn't hurt. With that said, GO Lakers! I think they can come back and win it with their next two games being at home and the fact that they haven't played that great lately. We will see. All is well aside from poker and everything else. Nothing is new. I'm on the hunt for a bracelet and I want to get closer than I have been. It will be nice to have a shot at it and I will do my best in the remaining tournaments. I'll keep everyone updated. Goodnight.
