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.
