Survive and advance

There were 1720 runners in the Super Seniors (WSOP), and 258 of us advanced to Day 2.

The ride was a rollercoaster. I lost a bunch of chips when I ran 10-10 into kings in sort of a cooler situation, but provided a cooler of my own near the end of play. A player raised to 2000 (where the blinds were 500/1000/100) from the low-jack and the Small Blind three-bet to 5500. I called with Q-Q and the first guy called. The flop was Q-8-7 and it checked around. The turn was another 8 giving me the full house, and the SB led out, called all around. He checked the river and I made a small bet, but both folded (SB showed A-K about what I thought).

Before the day started, I told the guy I came out here with, that I would like to bag 50,000 chips. Instead, I bagged 56,400 chips -- close enough. Good luck moi.

EDIT: Here's a link to see all the geez..., er, all the Super Senior players chip counts.

  1. I got the last sentence! Good job!

  2. In the past they got your name wrong and your location wrong.


    Maybe you can avoid the tax when you win it. :)

  3. I found it interesting how your notes only focus on website..
