Day 2 of $3k todayJun 29, 2009 – 20:06PM
I made my first day 2 yesterday finishing with 66,500 in the $3k triple chance. Looking at my table I'll be 3rd in chips there with Antonio Esfandiari 2 to my left. 81 spots pay and like 150 are left, so we still have a lot of work to do. I was pretty happy with my play overall yesterday. I made 3 mistakes that I remember, and paid for all 3. two of them were pretty big mistakes, and the third wasn't too bad though. there was a 4th questionable play but if it was a mistake I think it was a really small one.
I had some pretty tough tables but my seat worked well and the tables worked well stylistically for me. I hate to sound like I'm complaining when I have a big stack, but I actually ran pretty poorly yesterday, losing big pots with JJ vs 66 against a short stack and 55 vs ATs all in versus a short stack. I did win QQ vs 99 all in vs a decent stack though, but those were my only 3 situations where I had another player all in and ran out 5 cards, the rest of the time i was seeing flops, using my reads, and making good decisions.
I've got a good chip stack though, so I like my chances at making a run here. Anything can happen though, coolers, beats, bad decisions, but I feel really good about how I'm playing and looking forward to making a nice, deep run here.
