I played the Aussie Millions main event a few days ago. I had a good table draw and played fairly well all day. I ran my 30k starting stack up to about 90k at it's peak. With under 30 minutes left in Day 1 I managed to lose two huge pots. One was a triple barrel bluff putting the player all in. The opponent made a good call with second pair. I then lost AQ vs KK in a squeeze spot against three players where I was fairly certain of everyone's range (the third player flatted in late position with KK.) I was definitely disappointed busting in the final hands of Day 1 after playing good all day. There's always room for improvement.
I'm leaving Australia tomorrow (at the airport now - wrote blog yesterday) and heading to Japan to see one of my best friends. He plays professional basketball in Osaka. Unfortunately, he injured his calf the other day so I won't get to see him play, but at least we will get to hang out. I've never been to that part of the world. I'm looking forward to it.
Today is Australia Day. To celebrate, here are some pictures I've snapped from the trip.
Alley covered with graffiti, some sick art.
I have a lot more pictures from Australia. I'll take a bunch in Japan too. Until next post...
