Ended up getting 20th in the 6max Limit Hold’em for my only cash so far. It was definitely exciting and fun, but not the place I was looking for. I played with a number big name pros in this event including Justin Bonomo, Michael Binger, Phil Gordon and a couple others. Most of these online […]

Finally made a day 2. Still pretty far away from the money with 122 remaining and only 36 pay. My chipstack is 34,000 going into 800/1600. Played too many hands today to remember. Pretty much every table had some recognizable pro. Played a bit with Hoss at the end of last night’s play and it […]

Managed to make it 7.5 hours in this one yesterday to bust ~114th of 650 when 64 pay. It was pretty grueling especially because pot limit events don’t have antes. It started out 10max and switched to 9 handed when we got down to 200 or so. You have to play mega tight in these […]

It’s been a busy couple of days. I just got back to Seattle from the Indy 500 on Sunday, and then flew out to Vegas on Tuesday to my first wsop event of the year today. May ended up with me losing $27k which is not so bad. I really just like to think of […]
