Main Event run ends

Above: You have to climb a lot of steps to survive in the WSOP Main Event.

I'm sitting in my room watching poker on TV. An hour or so ago, I was playing in the event. Playing is more fun than watching.

I started with 14 big blinds. Early I shoved with 9-9 and everyone folded. The blinds and antes ground me down and I shoved with A-K and again with A-J. It's tough with a short stack. You basically have to shove or fold. Raising and then having to fold to a three-bet is a recipe for disaster. I shoved one last time from the cut-off on a steal and the BB called with A-J. I whiffed the board and was gone.

I've got to come back and play again next year. Even though I don't like my result, I enjoyed playing and the excitement.

  1. Good run Mojo, sorry you couldn't get further.

  2. Thanks for sharing the journey, wish you had advanced.

  3. Hopefully see you in 2 years when I qualify for the senior event!

  4. Nice run overall. Sounds like you had fun out there regardless the result.

  5. I would be very glad to join if I knew about it earlier. But still, I'm more of an online gambler. Sitting at home is, much more comfortable for me. There is a chance to face a scammer online indeed, so be careful. Better to start with bob casino.
