i worked up a pretty crazy image at my table, before picking up KK in EP.

i got lots of action, and even more from QQ in the blinds who squeezes. i shove and get snapped called. all is well until the Q on the river ends all hope.

i get a few apologies and head out the door, dreams dashed.

day 1 update

day one went pretty good for me.

ended up with about 66k and average is about 48k.

i played a huge hand with gus hansen -- here's the update from WPT. I'm SB obv.

Gus Hansen makes a pre-flop raise from the cutoff and gets two callers from the blinds. The flop comes K76, and the action checks around to Hansen who bets 900. The small blind raises (check-raise) to 3,000, the big blind drops out and Hansen calls. The turn is the 7 and the small blind leads out with a 5,500 bet. Hansen calls and the river is the J. The small blind bets 10,000 and Hansen goes into the tank.

"I don't see how I can beat anything that he has," says Hansen as he shuffles his chips. Hansen continues to think out loud. "Well, well, well," he says. "I really don't have that much left. There is always a chance that this guy is completely and utterly insane, but it doesn't look like it."

One player calls the clock just as Hansen makes a reluctant call as he says, "Wow, I actually found two hands that I can beat." The small blind turns over KK for the full house as Hansen shakes his head and throws his hand into the muck. After the hand, Hansen is left with just 7,000 in chips.

WPT Niagara

Heading to Niagara falls this weekend to play in my first $10k WPT event.

I'm just going to buy in directly, although I have some people who've bought some of my action. So I'm not putting up the whole $10k myself.
Hopefully I can make them and myself some money. :) A cool million would be nice.
I've been running pretty terribly lately, but I'm cool with it. Saving up all my run good for this weekend!
I'll post some updates on how it all transpires.
For now, I'll leave you with a nice hand I played today. How badly do you just want to click call? I think I hit it automatically everytime I look at the picture.
