Matt Stout is playing a full schedule at the 2010 World Series of Poker but that doesn't stop him from grinding the online MTTs every sunday.
Stout's back with another edition of the Sunday Report, where he tells all about profits, losses, and what it's like to be a young poker professional.
Check out what went down at his house this past Sunday.
After getting a few massages at the Rio during the World Series of Poker, I started to ponder how great it would be to get them at home during Sunday sessions. It didn't take long to find one of the massage girls who'd be willing to do it, either!
It was a madhouse here on Sunday, as it often is during the WSOP. Aside from the residents (Paul Wasicka, Jon "sketchy1" Eaton, and myself), we were hosting: Rohn "herbs23" Schutsky, Bryan "KUSH OR DIE/APPLEBUD" Berc, Steve "Zugie" Kusturiss, and three of my good buddies from Brooklyn.
With lots of good friends, plenty of good bud, and massages on call, you'd think we were allllllll set to use up all the rungoodsauce my IP address had to offer, right?
Well, you might be right, but if so the IP address had VERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRY little to offer after how well it treated me last week! I'm pretty sure no one in the house had a winning session. Not one person. EPIC FAIL!!!
I did make one final table ... kind of. I finished 7th of just 81 players in the Cake $162, whose tournament fields have been hurt significantly by two different but related facts:
1) Lock Poker has moved from the Cake Network to the Merge Network, so Cake has lost the traffic of many Lock customers.
2) Cake Poker lowered the guaranteed prize pools of their tournaments, which happened shortly before Lock was leaving the network.
My closest shot of making a profit for the day came when I finished 14th in the Stars $204 hyper-turbo, which had an average stack of about six big blinds and is more of a random distribution of the prize pool than an actual poker tournament.
Apparently I couldn't even rely on luck this week, which is strange since I'm usually such a lucksack.
