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.

Sick play with the KK. How deep were you? Did you think about reraising preflop?

Do you mind posting your real name so I can sweat your progress on day 2?

Yeah I definitely thought about reraising pre. We were about 30k deep with 100/200 blinds, no ante.

I got myself in a lot of trouble in the APPT playing bloated pots OOP so I just decided to see a flop -- especially bc it was against Gus.

Name is John Hartery.
