Tunica WSOP Circuit wrap-up

I played in a satellite to the Tunica WSOP Circuit Main Event, but failed to win a seat. I misjudged how fast the satellite would play. After about 60 to 90 minutes it was a continuous string of all-ins. I believe I shoved with 10-10 and ran into aces, c'est la vie.

I did play in one other event, the Monday 4 o'clock Deepstack NL event. There were 300+ entries and I busted 20th for $600+ where the buy-in was $250 and first paid $14K. The hand that crippled me was all-in pre with A-Q vs. K-Q with two kings coming on the flop. For some reason the results were never posted online, but they were supposed to be here.

The Circuit moved to West Palm Beach FL, and I'm back in Florida, so might shoot down there for an event -- we'll see.

The poker today was fun and exciting, but didn't end how I would have liked. I busted out in 28th place for $1971 when my set of Aces were overtaken by a flush draw for a 1 Million+ chip pot. I like to think I could have won my first ring if that hand had won, but we'll never know.

The biggest pot I won was when my Q-Q beat J-J, all in pre. Coolers are part of the game, and I was happy to be on the right side of that one.

In the results section, they have me listed as David Smith from some place in Georgia. I don't know why they can't get it right. See the results here.

I have some business to take care of this week, so not sure when I'll play again. Would love to play in the Main Event this weekend, but we'll see. There's also a mega-stack tomorrow at 4 that looks interesting. Stay tuned.

On to Day 2

The main weekend event at WSOP Circuit Tunica (played at the Horseshoe Tunica) is a re-entry with three starting days I fired my first bullet Friday at 4 p.m. and advanced through to Sunday so have today off. The levels were 30 minutes and we played through most of Level 15. I have 89.5K chips where the big blind is 2400.

The event played fast and loose early as players knew they could reenter through.Level 8. After that, things tightened up because players didn't want to have played that long and then fail to advance. I tried to play opposite of that where I could.

There were 316 entries and 37 of us advanced. Another flight kicked off today at 11 a.m. and the last one will be at 4 p.m. The entry fee was $365, and the prize pool is to be determined.

The play tomorrow will go until the final table is established and we, er I mean those people who advance will come back to slug it out on Monday.
