Huh, Twitter noob, but I never saw the message about the hand. Thanks for filling me in.
Is it just the Main Event that's left? Anything left for sale? I live in Las Vegas, out of boredom and to have some action maybe I'll meet up and buy a piece. PM or email me if you like... email@example.com
@BTuckPoker end of a bad L1. BUT I have 25100 at a confirmed soft table. Going to avoid high variance spots and grind it up. #feelgood
Take the day easy, relax by the pool, maybe get laid. Come back tomorrow strong and build that stack back up. Remember the goal...make enough money to motorboat Monica Fulco when you get back.
yep, eyes on the prize, the sweet chocolate rosebud of Monica Fulco.
disappointing to have more chips, had a really really good table. the only hitch was this German on my left who was constantly flatting and occasionally 3b my raises, and he hated to fold and was just clicking buttons postflop, which hampered my ability to attack all the recfish at the table. I then never had a hand where I was playing for value after dinner, always trying to get a cbet through. Barrelled twice with air, got one river fold, and then this horrid old man who had folded QQ faceup to a 3b and K5 on KT557 calls my 3b pre with KT, flop KQ4, i bet he calls, turn 7, ck ck, river Q, I bomb and he tank-calls. Would do it every time if I knew his cards, figured he would fold AK there, given his history. Very next hand, I raise 88 over limpers from CO, German on BTN 3b, I call. Flop 894hh, i ck to crai, he cks. turn 5h. I bet 7500 into 11k, he calls. river 2h. :(((((((((((( i ck, he piles, i fold, he shows Kh. Sweet call on turn to draw to the nonnut flush.
16800 to start tomorrow. Feels crappy when I had 42 and should have 60ish, but it's still over 30BB with 2 hr levels. There are only 2 people that appear beastly based on their hendonmob results on my day 2 table so that's good, but the suck is that they are 2 of the 3 on my left. I'm certainly not in desperation mode, but of course I am definitely at the stage where any misplay, cooler or suckout could be the death blow. Let's run this mother up.
I have 52K starting Day 2. Got drawn with Shaun Deeb and a big stack. Should be an adventure to say the least. There are 4 or so bigger stacks at my table as well so it should be fun!
I thought I was in the background of a PokerNews Update by Kristy Arnett and I looked directly into the video while she was doing her update and made my best Chris Brown that Ass face, but it apparently ended up on the cutting room floor.
Oh yeah, Pics of Arnett
Been a great trip so far seeing old friends. GL with Shaun. He kicked my ass in beer pong the other night at Bill's. Got to spend some quality time with Kristy the past few days. She's an awesome girl and even snuck over to my table towards the end of the night tonight after a few glasses of wine to paparazzi me with my smuggled in Dr. Pepper. Tomorrow's my day off, but I'll be keeping track of you guys. GL in Day 2A!
@TXSooner518: I have been eliminated. What an awful feeling. FML.
I folded for an hour so tight image. I 1100 JT, aggro Btmakes 2600, I pile 12500. He's folding a LOT there. He holds w AKdamnez 2 say why bust w JT but talked last nite to ppl who played w him and knew I had to b prepared to 4bai w my stack in late pos
Well I am out as well. Took a horrific beat in a limped pot when I flopped a pair and a flush draw. Non-nut flush draw has 22 K to start hand and calls down my 4K check raise on flop and 6.5k bet on turn with non-nut flush draw. He of course hits his straight on the river (which I hit the ass end of the straight....so i can't get away from it for the final 12K.....then ran my QQ into KK. FML. Second the sick feeling.
Poker is a cruel mistress. Just when I think I have it figured out.....
He finally hit the money. At least $2400 but the payout are pretty bunched up....1st takes down 260k
And he is about 100k in chips over avg stack
He was at 370k when he was 100 k over avg
492k avg 385 k....125 players left i think

I thought 5800 was at 28 players, not 128.
@TXSooner518: @BTuckPoker pay jumps are tiny when we get in the $ for a long time. 180th is $2400, 28th is $5800. So if I get in, will be worth gambool

?@TXSooner518: Fold forfuckingever then shove AK over a spaz and the BB has AA. GG in 82nd for worthless pebbles. #$#@!youvegas?
Bet all your winnings on black. Win, go to different table, let it ride. Repeat. Get rich. Get paid, and include us in that ride.

No kidding. If it makes you all feel any better, I also dropped about $4k on single table tourneys and megas, another $1000 or so at cash (up to and including getting 1 outed for a str8 flush in an Omaha game, and missing 20 outs for a $3k pot in another), plus hotel, car, food, blah blah blah. Very disappointing overall.
I will run the calculations when I get back, but you should expect about $100 back per 1% for this cash + refunds for unused buyins. whee.
Sweet. I'm buying a hooker.
Either that or saving it for your next stake.
Or you could stake me for a hooker
$#@!in right...so i only lost like $130....well worth it....im in next time
I'm buying steak for a hooker. What?
[csb]One of the dudes at the final table, Robert Salaburu from San Antonio, is a friend of a friend. We just happened to be in Vegas this weekend and went down to the Rio to watch him on Sunday night. Really, really, nice kid. He doesn't have a pot to piss in, and is going to take home at least $300,000 after his backers get their cut.[/csb]
what high school did Salaburu attend? just curious.
short video interview with Salaburu:
also here's a photo of the final 9
