WSOP Day 2b results - on to day 3

Today was a up and down day. Started with 106K, got to $140K, down to $50K, and ended at $142K.

I was at a table with David Oppenheim and Antonio.. and sandwhiched between antonio and another big stack.

I get into a sick hand with David Opp. He had been open raising a lot of pots and being aggresive. So i limp UTG with 56off (yeah i know...) David raises to $1600 and I call. Flop is AJ4. I think for a min like i have a monster and check. he bets $4K and I call. Turn is a 7 and gives me open ended. I check and he best $8800. Any other card and I can get away from it. But i have been representing a big hand and now have a draw. So i call, planning on leading the river no matter what.

The river is an 8 giving me the straight. I know he doesnt have 9T, so I know I have the nuts. I check, he bets $16K and I debate what to bet. I thought about a min raise, but then to get max value, decided on $40K to maybe look like i missed and was buying it. He eventually folded.

I built easily up to about $120K. then lost a huge hand.
had Qs8s on the button and with a few limpers saw a flop of Js4s8c. checked to hijack who bets a weak 2500. With my big draw, i semi-bluff $7500 to see whats up. he calls.

turn is a 9d giving me a gutter. he checks and this is where i F'd up. I should have checked behind. but no... staying aggressive and trying to rep a big hand, i fire $20K. he calls and has $15K more.

River is a blank, he checks and i put him all in. he calls painfully and tables AA.

I could have checked behind on the turn and river and saved almost $40K. now I am down to $60Kish.

I get moved to a new fairly soft table. I have one huge hand. Raise in MP with QdTd and get 1 caller, the big stack. Flop is Jd9dTc, giving me open ended straight flush and middle pair. I bet $4500, he makes it $10K, i make it $30K, he goes all in and I call. he has KQ for nut straight. Turn is a blank and 8d on river for straight flush.

Nothing exciting after that, ended with $143K good for 355th out of 1315 left.

WSOP - Day 2b - Updates

We're waiting for some Voice Updates, but we have heard from Podiman via text messaging and he's hanging in there. Here's a link to his chip count movement per Poker News:

Chip Count Progress

He had a rocky day, going down quite a bit when he got it all in against a shorter stack with a great draw and missed, but later in the evening he made it all back and then some when he flopped a big draw with QTs, got it all in again for his tournament life and hit the straight flush. He's current in very good shape with 142,500.

Could I be at the Feature TV Table???

Speaking to a group of players and they were talking about my table. Said that there is a good shot they choose it for the TV table.
Once the tables are drawn, ESPN goes through them and decides which one would be the best. I went through the entire 2b list and have to agree, our table, with 2 pros and 4 big stacks would certainly fit.
They also said that you get $10K for wearing a FT or PS logo.. that would rock either way! So.. just have to wait and find out.
Off to bed...

2/5 at the Wynn - how to more than double up in 20min

So I just sat down at 2/5 maybe 15min ago. I buy $1000 in chips, and look around. Decent stacks, so I put another $1k in cash behind.

5th hand in, I squeeze KK in MP. Raise in front of me to $30. Player next to me had told me he is very aggressive. So I pop it to $100. Tiny asian girl thinks and thinks, almost mucks, and calls. Raiser just calls.
Flop comes K66... Sweeeet!!

Tiny asian girl bets $125, kid calls, Are you serious?? I call.

Turn is 7.
Tiny asian goes all in for about $450, kid calls!! What?? So I look at his stack and he's got about $700 left. Pot is huge and pretty sure he's committed. AK? AA?, So I go all in. He gives a pained look, thinks for about 20seconds and calls. I show my KK. And thankfully no one has 66.

River is a 3.
She shows 33
He shows AA.

15min in and scooped $4100 pot.

While I was just typing this on my BBerry, called a raise on the button with KJ. Pot is $100.
Flop is QT4, raiser bets 30, I call as does tiny asian girl.
A on turn, he bets 50, I make it 150, she shoves for 240, he folds and I call. I show and she mucks.

Now have $4600...and I've been here less than 25min.

I hope I run this good on wednesday!!
