I have plans two play in two different tourney's today. The first was a small warm up tourney with a $1 Buy In, 609 Players played and I managed to place 19th and in the money. My next was the same big tourney I played in last week ( The Double Deuce ). Again another 7000 people have put up $22 for a total prize pool of $140,000 with 1st place paying $27,232.80! We are currently into the game for about 50 minutes now and I have added to my 2200 starting chip count to 4922 and rank 771 of 4989 players still left. I will update my play and rank as the game goes on. Wish me luck. Ok so I'm feeling like tonight is the nite so I'm going to enter another big tourney ( $21,000 Guarantee ) 1705 players playing with a total prize pool of $40,920with 1st place paying $8,429.52. I will update you on this tourney as well. Ok I'm on my 2nd break in the Double Deuce and I'm doing pretty good. I had a great hand when my Pocket A's improved to a full boat and doubled me up. Right now I stand 554 of 2485 Players Left.
My Dreams of taking down the Daily Double just ended. I had set over set and mine fell short. Anyways I didn't do as well as I did last week nor did I make the money this week placing just under 1000. I'm still going strong in the other tourney ranked 223 of 561 Players Left. Hopefully I place in the $$$ in this one. Update at my next break. OK its another break and I'm still in the run. After taking a few bad hits to my stack I have managed to work my way back up to a good size stack. As it stand now I'm in the money and ranked # 69 of 144 with a stack size of 31,688 Chips. Hopefully I'm still in it during the next break. See ya in an hour! OK I have good news and bad news, i will start out with the good. During this hour I had my best hand of the day, see below pic.
Now for the bad news, I just busted out in the mid 40's. My hand was A 6 suited and I was in the big blind ( by this time the blinds were 6000 / 3000 and I was short stacked with around 25,000 chips. The play went as follows. Everyone folded down to the small blind, he called the additional 3000 chips, i check, the flop comes A 6 8 and I have two pair. He checks and I push the rest of my chips in and he calls right away flipping over k 8 for a pair, turn comes 3 helping no one and yes you guessed it the river brought another 8 sending me to the rail and winning $83.89. My only question is when will it be my time to hit the big one. See ya next Sunday!
