Limped into Day 3

Above: The Rio Casino is the home of the WSOP.

I've advanced to Day 3 (Saturday), but played terribly. Having some bad luck didn't help either. My stack moved up above 100,000 chips, then slowly went down. I bagged 28,300 which is 14 big blinds, so I'll need some luck tomorrow. I guess the good news is that I'm used to having a short stack, but there's no room for error here.

Some days it goes like that, and I know it. Was good to have today (Friday) off to recover and rebuild my confidence. Some encouraging tweets by friends -- thanks.

Something you seldom see: A guy at my table raised. Guy 2 three bet. Guy 1 shoved. Guy 2 went into the tank and finally asked if he folded would Guy 1 show. He said yes. Guy 2 folded K-K face up. Guy 2 showed A-A. I don't think I've ever folded kings preflop. If they have it, they have it. Have you seen this at the table?

  1. Chippy is the bomb! Best of luck Sat,

  2. I’ve folded KK preflop 4 times in my life, convinced each time he (always a nitty old man overshoving) has AA. Been wrong 4 times.

    Go get ‘em!

  3. Well done Mojo, some days it's really tough to get anything going but you hung on and made it to tomorrow. Good luck.

  4. From what I could see, it looks like the money is about 450 players away. Of course getting their makes for that evil min cash. :)

    As to KK, I have folded them with a decent stack near the money being covered by the opponent. You have to assume a coin flip. I recall your final table where much less was played against you. (33?) So, circumstance rules more than most situations. In that case, the other player couldn't get a handle on playing against you and rolled the dice.

    Play well and prosper today!

  5. Good luck today! Time for the short stack ninja!
