Good news, bad news

Above: The Rio is the venue for the 2014 World Series of Poker.

I advanced to Day 3 which will be played on Thursday, and that's the good news. I only have 36,000 chips and that's the bad news. Everything that could go wrong today did, so maybe I'm due for good luck next time. What can I say -- survive and advance.

The highlight of my day: A player limped in (as an aside, he was the only player to do this, but he did it with good hands and bad hands). I had 4 2 and raised three times his bet. The flop was J 7 5. I bet, and he went away. Should I have slow-played it?

Above: Bagging chips is always a good thing.


  1. just play yr game and let the chips fall where they may

  2. Growing your bag of chips is possible. Reentering the game after elimination is not.

  3. Oh, you can still final table (hadn't read this yet)... Chip and a chair... ;)

  4. Re slow playing: What if you give a free card and the turn is a diamond higher than 4 or the board pairs?

    You know how to play the short stack. Good luck! btw -- I am getting into town late Friday afternoon. Didn't know how long you were going to be around and if it depended on how deep you go in the Main Event.

  5. Dont slow play. Ever. Well maybe if you flop quads+

  6. You're still in and that's what counts. Good luck Mojo
