I showed up for the $500 event on Thursday to find bracelet winner and River Rock regular Robert Cheung and three other solid regulars I recognized at my table.
It was pretty shitty/surprising to get such a bad table draw in such a small tournament. But hey such is life I guess.
Not much too talk about, I busted half way through Day 1. I was pretty card dead all day which seems standard in live tournaments as far as I can tell.
Admittedly I don't play live tournaments that often but I've probably played twenty lifetime and in that time I don't think I've ever had what I consider to be a decent run of cards.
I mean it's obviously a small sample and I'm just bitching but it'd be nice to win some hands at showdown and not have to manufacture every pot.
But I know how much variance is in these stupid things so I'll keep plugging away whenever decent live tournaments run and eventually I'll ship one.
Hopefully, it'll be one of the next two I play. I'll be playing the $1100 event on Monday and the four-day $2,700 main event starting Thursday. I'd love to do well in one of those seeing as though River Rock used to be one of the casinos I dealt at.
It would just feel awesome to come back and just slay it. I'll keep you guys posted with what goes on.
Other than that I was sick at the beginning of the month so I haven't put nearly as many hands in as I would have liked and with all this live poker I probably won't get to. But I played 55,000 hands last month so I'll have to be pleased with that ;)
Hope to have some good news next time I post and if any of you are in Vancouver for the tourney feel free to say hello.
