Almost a week!
I have been in Vegas for almost a week now. Ive played two events, the 1500 limit holdem, and the 2k no limit. In the limit event, I picked up a bunch of big hands early and lost with most of them, sending me to the rail in the 3rd level. In the 2k no limit, I built a big stack and was cruising all day until 11pm, when I was priced in to call with JJ and lost a big flip to AK, then minutes later I lost a bunch of chips with 55 on a 742 flop. I managed to survive with my now short stack for another hour or so but finally busted when my 6-2 wasnt able to run through jack-ten sooted. I was sent to the rail with about 190 left, paying 150.
Other than live tourneys things have been going pretty well out here. I have played 2 sessions of 100-200 holdem and scored nice wins in both sessions. Along with a good win in a 60-120 BOTA session.
Yesterday I decided to take the day off from the strip and we grilled and hung out by the pool at my house, before the mandatory home game broke out. The mix was about nine games (except limit holdem). I managed to squeak out a small win when I sucked out in a capped plo pot, when my bottom set, flush draw got out on middle set...life is good. After that I ran 4 small buyin tourneys on stars including the 77 6max tourney that I snapped off and won!
Today Im heading down the strip, I plan on playing live for most of the day then registering for the 5k limit event tomorrow, should be a smallish tougher field, but Im looking forward to a limit holdem event with 10k starting chips. Wish me luck!
