Sitting here for 45 minutes on break of the 1k rebuy event at the bellagio, I realized I should be doin something ... It was quite a waste of time waiting around for the staff to figure out all the rebuys and addons in what was supposed to be a 15 min break.
It finally dawned on me I should be writing up a blogpost about my win on Wednesday.
Tuesday was the start of the 5k horse event at bellagio which I was not planning on playing, until I woke up that morning feeling good.
I went and jumped in the tournament and couldn't really get anything going right away. It wasn't until the blinds got a little higher that I started winning a bunch of pots and ran my stack up b4 the dinner break.
I finished the night 4th in chips with 12 left, which left an interesting dynamic going into day 2 with the average stack having only 9 big bets.
I went and played bball w Scott Clements and Dan Obrien on Wednesday morning before day 2 started. This was a great feeling since I hadn't played basketball in probably 2 months.
Afterwards I was feeling good, full of energy and called my shot in the 5k horse telling a few friends that I was feeling a win.
I came out swinging w some stellar bubble play winning a few key pots when we were playin 5 handed on 2 tables and when we got to the final table of 9 no one wanted to bust because only 8 spots get paid.
I was able to pick my spots well and basically stay out of the way of the 2 bigger stacks on my right. Once the bubble finally burst... The bustouts began immediately and before I knew it ... I was heads up with Steven Su.
We flattened the payouts a bit, which I think was the right move. Steven had a slight lead and probably had a small edge because horse is what he normally plays.
We played heads up for like 4 hours before I finally finished him off in Omaha8. This was only my 3rd ever live horse tournament and it felt great to get a win.
Unfortunately since the win, I played the 5k plo rebuy, which by the way was one of the softest big buyin tourneys I've ever played. I spent 30k which was the most of anyone and didn't accumulate any chips during the rebuy hour.
I was really card dead and was just waiting to get it in good. I finally did, getting it in on the turn having the guy with only 6 outs. I held, but only to bust on the very next hand for the chiplead in an unavoidable spot. The kid who busted me went on to win it too.
Right now, I'm sitting here, getting a massage and writing a blogpost... This took much longer than expected. I'll start paying attention to my table soon. Got average chips and playin like a nit right now.
