How often are the SNGs going off? How's the competition?
during today's 2k, sng sats for tomorrows $2500 were going off every 20 minutes or so. competition has to be nothing short of horrible.


anyway, i bustoed near the end of level 4, lost a coinflip to some old tard who was doing [censored] like limping K8o. AK < 66 sigh.

psyduck, mastr, fatalerror, daut, rainkhan, waco, marco, sbrounder, stammdogg were all still in with 100 left or so.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

I get in tomorrow night. Am I right to assume there is no point to check out the Venetian $5K and just go right to Bellagio for the $3K on Friday?

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

the venetians now delayed to start at 3pm with late reg till 5pm. (i think)

on monday w/ no 5diamond tournament the $2500 got 48 people...
on tuesday w/ the first 5 diamond, the $2500 for 3, and was cancelled.

dunno what the attendnace was tonight w/ the new late start, but i'd play the 5diamond and then check out the venetian if you bust early.

I actually snuck in the money and finished 27th. Got the payout at the cashier's window, turned it right back over to buy in tomorrow.

2 day, 10K starting chips, hour levels. Every event is 2 day, hour levels, starting chips = 2X buy-in.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

Just curious, when you were down to four handed. What did you have vs Jimmie (skinny kid who won it) on the I believe 35KK board where you checkraised him on the flop and turn. Also what did you think of his play overall, and how big of a douche is the old guy who finished 2nd?

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

I busted in my very first 21+ US tournament in the 50/100 level.

Had a poor starting table to start with Shannon Shorr and Thayer 2 and 4 seats behind me respectively, but a lot of live weaker players.

There were a whole bunch of uneventful hands, Thayer had a lot of semi-interesting big hands he got into and hes near the chiplead maybe.

I bustod on a 4600 or so effective stack with a overall tight, sorta aggro image (very nitty for me) by threebetting TT over a 300 opener to 925 and shoving over his fourbet to 2500 and lost a flip vs AK. It was a fairly standard hand given the dynamics of the table and my image versus his tag + high ATSB play (he said he read shannons blog and knew who thayer was).

To anyone that reads this, Vivek and myself are getting people together tonight for food soewhere. PM me for my cell number. We are prolly shooting for somewhere around 10 to allow for people who finished day 1 to wind down a little.

Gl al tomorrow

Actually the action on the hand went I raise to 30k w/ A9o, He flat calls on the button... Flop K75ss, I bet 44k and he called... Turn was Kh, and I checked he bet 110k, and I moved in for 120k more and he folded... Really one of the sickest hands I've ever played...

And I think he plays pretty well... His thing is that a lot of people think he's way crazier than he actually is... He gets a lot of action that he shouldn't because of the way he looks... And ya, the old guy Kelly was such a douche... When we were 4 handed He said he was the best player left and I almost laughed out loud... He was so by far the worst player left...

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

Amusing bad karma story from the $2500 today. Old, miserable guy gets moved to my right, says under his breath, "I don't like this table, too many Asians." I'm the only one who heard him. Second or third hand he's there, he raises in EP, called by JC Tran in the BB. Flop: 5 5 4, I forget the suits. JC checks, old guy bets, JC raises, old guy shoves for a lot more, JC instacalls with Q5ss. Old guy tables AA, starts shouting for an A, doesn't get one. Of course I told the story as soon as he left.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

Today was a very testing afternoon, I think I took a cab drive 5 times today.

I have a good reason to believe that my cab driver from Panorama to Bellagio this morning stole the contents of one of my small luggage pouches but I could be completely wrong. Either way, I lost my charger cable for my laptop, which I use to charge my iphone.

So, today I went back and forth from the Panorama, then back and forth from the Mall to get all my laptop/iphone stuff.

Whats most infuriating is I'm missing a cable that connects my headphones to whatever audio device I use, and there wasnt a Sony store anywhere, so I have to use my ipod buds for now.

And just as I type this my sink is starting to make noises.

GAHHHHHHH

today has been the worst afternoon in a looooooong time, dinner tonight is gonna feel so great.

Jimmie has been killing the 10/20 bellagio game buying in like 30k etc for almost a year now. He does get crazy action. Also Kelly does the same thing, just not the killing part, let's just say he talks a big game... I was just curious what others thought of his play.

Also on the hand I was looking at that board thinking, neither one of them have [censored]. LOL, I really thought you were both making a move. My friend said Jimmie has got to have a king here... aparently not. Nice play.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

I busted with about 100 left today, still haven't won a single coinflip in the month of November in the 10 live events I've played.

I ended up sticking around the Bellagio until 8:20 or so because I didn't want to deal with traffic, and Vivek was still in with 40 left and a TON of chips. He played a fun hand vs Gavin Griffin:

old lady who'd been limping a lot limps in EMP at 400/800. folds to Vivek on the btn and he makes it 3200. from the bb, gavin very quickly makes it 9600 (I think that's right). old lady folds, and Vivek 4-bet shoves for ~20k more. Gavin eventually decides to call.

Vivek: KJo
Gavin: T7o

Vivek holds with K-high taking the pot down.

Re: Bellagio Five Diamond Thread

Does anyone know if the B is going to be having any super satellites for the main event in the 100-500 dollar range? They only show the single table $1,500 satellites on Bellagio's web page. I'm going to be in Vegas for at least a week as of the 10th...
