Meh, played a bunch of weird hands today and pretty sure I got owned by Boosted twice to end the day... 49k going to tomorrow, so not too bad. I definitely think I had a far tougher than avg table all day, so hopefully table draw will be better om day 2.
busto last level of day, had a decent stack then doubled good2cu in some kinda meh spot (tp<flopped flush for ~20BBs), then made a dubious stack off for my last 40BBs with AA on KJJddc 9c turn v dpeters, he had QTcc. dpeters if you read this sorry that i emo-marched away from the table afterwards, im no good at being a normal nice dude right after busting a live tourney.
edit: also had a pretty rough table all day, had good2cu, steve brecher, matt238, dpeters, some good dutch dude that was friends with good2cu, then matt238 got replaced by barryg with all the chips on my direct left. and also had ted lawson and some other tight older dude who never really made any big mistakes. was hoping to just outrunhot them all, but failed.
Think our table was prob toughest of the day but prob pretty close. Had brett richey, big huni, john phan, hoivold (the norweigan guy w/ blonde hair on the new HSP season), canofcorn, hb hitman, and myself, and smokinokun came to replace huni when he busted. Ended day with 114k.
Dirtiest grouping I saw was Mike Mizrachi, Luckychewy, and Jovial Gent in the 4-5-6 at #64.
This was the table I was at all day. A total torture-fest. Ended the day with 39300. I had hoped for a typical soft table to start, with people just giving their money away. We only had one of those, and he dumped off to several others at the table, but not me, sadly. Everyone else at the table knew how to play. A few too many chips for me to not try to take this one seriously (as opposed to just donking it off and then running to go play the Sunday online tournaments). I'll be struggling along tomorrow...
