I'm sitting here in the media room at the Venetian, after doing a few interviews over the last couple hours.
I feel like I have been really lazy lately when it comes to every aspect of my life except for poker.
Since arriving in Vegas, I have been sleeping about 10-12 hours a night, which has been great by the way. While I was in LA I was getting some of the worst sleep ever, only sleeping 4 hours or so a night.
I played the NAPT main event on Saturday and made it to Day 2 with 41k in chips which was a little bit below average stack.
I had a really tough table on Day 1, with benba, mrsmokey, nick binger, and a few other solid players at my table. I was really looking forward to Day 2 as I figured that I couldn't have a tougher table then I did on Day 1.
Unfortunately I was wrong, my Day 2 table consisted of, BkIce, Bazeman, and like 4 young online kids that all play well. I chipped up a bit over the first couple levels only to lose a big flip AK vs JJ for my stack near the end of the 2nd level.
I went upstairs and jumped in the Sunday 500 and busted after about 3 hours. I then passed out for a nice long nap and had a really scary dream which I don't want to talk about.
After getting up from the nap, I did a few things on the computer, booking flights etc, and then went and got some food with my roommate before going back to sleep.
Today, I woke up after sleeping for 12 hours, and then made my way down to the player lounge for the interviews that I had to do.
Luckily I was able to squeeze in just enough time to write this post, before the High Roller drawing party which is in 45 minutes. At the party, I will find out my table and start time for the NAPT High Roller event tomorrow.
This event is a $25k buyin and is a shootout structure with a cap of 48 players. You have to win your 8 handed table to make the money and play the final table of 6 players on the 25th.
I'm hoping to have a good draw and look forward to playing this event tomorrow. There are 2 flights one at 11 am and one at 5 pm, I'm not sure which one I want, I think the 11 am will be better for me since I have been sleeping so much recently.
Next blogpost will hopefully be after I make the final table of this event.
