So it’s only fifty five days until the WSOP and I’m getting excited just thinking about it. Last year I went in quite rusty not having really played a hand of poker in eleven months and was hoping to just play good enough to get lucky and bink something. I made money and it was […]

I made day 2 of the $2,500 8 game. My chips aren’t great, about half average at 8k, but I’m still in it. 40 get paid and 192 people are left. I had quite a bit of nerves for the first two hours of play or so since I haven’t played live in year, but […]

I got here last night. The flight from Seattle to Vegas is super easy. Direct and only two hours. I’m happy to say my roommate Matt Ashton is already deep in the $2,500 Stud 8/Omaha 8 or better event. Wish him luck! There’s 19 left and he’s currently 9th in chips. I’m playing the 8 […]

I lasted up until about an hour before dinner break on day 2. The day started off pretty well with me chipping up pretty slowly and people folding to my steals until I got up to my peak of 55k or so. I then lost a 30k pot where I flatted KQs in position and […]

So I made another day 2. I’m obviously running good. I had one big suckout vs the best player at the table who won a bracelet in event #1 this year. I didn’t really mind gambling vs him and I had some fold equity when I limp shoved 25bb or so vs him with QJ […]

I don’t think I’ve ever been so disappointed to win $36k($33k if you subtract my buyins) in my life. I busted in a 3 way hand and 12th paid an extra $10k. Oh well. It’s nice, but changes my life in no way at all and once you get that close to a final table […]

I played my first NL event today and played extremely well, but took some horrendous beats to bust. It reminded me of the good old run bad days haha. Kathy Liebert was seated at my starting table. She bluffed off like half her chips in the 2nd hour and was generally pretty quiet/tight after that. […]

I got into Vegas Thursday and played my first event 5pm that day. It feels good to back playing poker. It’s been quite awhile. I was a little nervous sitting down for my first event as it’s been so long since I played, but after an hour or so I felt right at home again. […]
