So far in the first two events I've played I lasted about a grand total of 4 hours and have won about 1 pot. That's kind of the way it goes in these low buy in events sometimes, but I'm hoping if I've had to experience one end of the spectrum in variance i'll get to experience the other very shortly. Historically in these events I'm either out before dinner or I cash, it's literally that extreme. They've improved the structure a lot this year with bigger starting stacks and more levels though, so I was anticipating a better chance for skill to win out in these. The sample size is really small though so I'm not worried.
For those of you that had asked for table #s for live sweat I'm in Amazon Orange table 63 seat 8 today to start. Even though the first two events didn't go so well I'm confident I played well just had a couple of pretty unavoidable spots. Not to mention I was having a pretty bad day yesterday in the first place. My rental car wouldn't start in the morning. I got roadside assistance to jump it and drove it over to the new condo I'm staying in with Grant Hinkle. The guy said to let it run for 30 minutes or so and I did, but when I got out to leave the car wouldn't start again. Grant was kind enough to give me a ride up there (and back after I busted) and I got the car rental company to tow a new car out to the condo in exchange for the bad one, but it was just a mess of a day altogether.
So far today is much smoother, let's hope that translate on to the felt as well!
