MOJO's in the money

I went to Harrah's again Sunday to play in the noon tournament. After Saturday's fiasco, there was a bad taste in my mouth that I wanted to do something about.

There were 400 runners, entry fee was $240. The first 12 levels were 30 minutes, then they switched to 40-minutes.

After 21 levels, there are 34 of us left (45 get paid). First place is around $18,000 so, what the hey, think big.

We resume tomorrow at 1 p.m. I had good cards and they held up, so what can I say? Below is a shot of me when the bubble burst. I have $155,000 in chips in front of me. My sweatshirt says "Hardcore Mojo." Can you read it? My arms are covering the Mojo part.

We started at noon. After we broke for the day (at 2:15 a.m., 14 hours later), we bagged our chips. I had $201,000. We started the day with 10,000.

I'm too tired to do much of a recap. I was going to play in the WBCOOP Monday at 4 p.m. central time, but I hope I'm not home in time for it, lol.

UPDATE: KenP mock complained about not knowing the blind structure. See below.

First two images shot with my P&S.

  4. Vince: Who is that fellow, Mike? He's really working those wired pairs.

    Mike: Famous Bridge Player from up river. Always lurking in the weeds to take advantage of others playing the Cadillac of Poker.

  5. I think you need to hire your own press agent. I went to the site to get the skinny:

    The full payout structure for the selected tournament is currently unavailable.

    Chip Counts
