I'm playing a lot of poker tournaments. I find them very boring for the most part, but I wake up every morning feeling like a champion and head to the Rio for 12 hours of torture. I've also brought many hats with me, which I find are very important to wear during poker so the other players can not get a read on my emotional state.
Here's me looking very stylish recently...
Well, I wrote that intro about 2 weeks ago when the summer was just beginning and some stuff has happened since. Let me catch you up on this "stuff".
We're making some runs in some tournaments. When I say we I'm of course talking about team hermoso, the house of guys I'm crashing with this summer. Here's a quick recap:
- Derek and Sadan kicked things off in the very first no limit event by finishing 26th and 22nd respectively out of about 3000 people. Both picked up around $15k for their efforts.
- I decided to play the $1500 limit omaha 8/b tournament despite having limited experience in the game. I found it quite easy however and made a pretty deep run ultimately finishing in 19th place. Here's me looking very confused while all in on day 3.
This seems to be getting a bit long, and the next one will likely be a lengthy post as well as I'm going to write a ton about the 10k pot limit holdem final table that I just made.
But to close this one out, here's a nice fellow from the television that Sadan spotted at the Rio. We ended up playing a bunch of 3-card-poker with this fine gentleman, and he assured us that Kenny Powers is a pretty awesome guy.
