Since my last blogpost I’ve played two days of online tournaments and two live tournaments. I played on Saturday and Sunday online while I was still in Florida, playing all the big MTTs on Stars.
Saturday was a pretty rough day, was semi-deep in a few tournaments, but didn't really have any results. Sunday, I decided to play only 11 tourneys and go to my parents’ house and watch football all day with my Dad and play on my laptop.
Normally, I would play about 20-25 tournaments on a Sunday.
I played the warmup, both 100 rebuys, the million, the 215 HU, the sunday 500, the 700 pca qualifier, the 2nd chance, the 215 rebuy, the 109 turbo, and the nightly.
I basically bubbled the million, the sunday 500, the 215 rebuy, the 109 turbo, and the nightly. Not like the exact bubble, but very close to the money.
I had one cash. I got 4th in the 215 Heads Up for $4396 which gave me a positive day, but was overall a very frustrating day.
The Sunday 500 in particular really upset me, because a "reg" played a hand absolutely retarded, and check raised induced with T9 on a board of J 8 3, and called my A hi shove, A9 to be exact, and binked the 10 on the river for an enormous pot. Almost chucked my laptop on the floor, but thought better of it.
I flew to Vegas on Tuesday, taking an 8 am flight from Florida, landing in Vegas at 10:30 am. I went straight to the Bellagio to play the 1500 Omaha 8/b tournament, which actually got 70 players. I was suprised and pretty excited that it drew this many, as I was expecting to see 40-50 players or so.
I am hoping that the rest of the prelims will have decent fields as well. I ended up busting in 14th from the omaha tourney, playing for 11 hours. Only the final table got paid. The structures of these bellagio prelims are the absolute pittz btw.
I then played the 1k yesterday, which drew a field of 163 players and was awarding 50k for first. I busted 25th, getting my money in with QQ vs AK vs 99, in a spot where I thought I must be up against KK or AA or maybe both after I cold 4 bet jammed and got snap reshoved and snap called by both players.
Whatever, sick board though... 2-4-5-2-3 weeeeeeeeeee! So this is what I mean when I say, Feeling Kinda Bubbly. I'm going to play the 1500 PLO rebuy event today and obviously turn things around with a win.
One last thing, WHY IS IT SO COLD IN VEGAS? gawsh!
