Above: The shot clock when I busted out of the Hollywood Poker Open.
The HPO is a great event. There are one-hour levels and players start with 25,000 chips. In Level 10, the blinds were only 500/1000 with 100 antes. During Level 9 and 10, I had three bad things happen. The last one a guy called a three bet and flopped a set of 5s. I had top pair, top kicker with a redraw to the nut flush. The flush didn't get there, so good game me.
