Day 1B is better

Above: The Gold Strike Casino Tunica is the venue for the 2013 Fall Poker Classic.

Day 1B was good for me. I have advanced to the final on Sunday. There are 61 players left (out of a starting field of 557 for both days), and 54 will cash. First place is $41,114, something to shoot for. Somebody has to win, why not me? I start tomorrow in the lower part of the top 20. All that can change with the deal of a single card -- may my mojo be working.

I had one cooler where I ran my Q-Q into K-K for a loss of 20K in chips. Fortunately, the villain was a short stack at the time. Then in a blind vs. blind, I lost 10K with A-9 on a flop of A-A-4. Yes, he also had an ace with a better kicker. That was 10K down the drain (again lucky it was against a short stack).

I had plenty of good luck, too. A big stack doubled me up when he overplayed A-Q on a 10-9-x flop where I had pocket 9s.

You can see the table positions and chip stack sizes at Basefook, erm that's Facebook here.
