    Anyone in town to play in the WSOP? I'm in a 9am Satellite today & I recommend you play these events! I've found the satellites to be soft and have won lammers every satellite I've played. Looking to extend my perfect record :)
    Thing is, I generally don't play the "real" events; I just sell the lammers to players in the registration line. I have played one actual bracelet event & cashed in 79th place, but the satellite field is so much softer and generally has a higher % ROI than min-cashing a bracelet event. Anyway, that's my personal approach to making money @ the WSOP. If any VB members are around the Rio today stop by, say hello & wish me luck!

    Just got knocked out.
    Made it 3x to go with A-Q suited. Folds around to BB who inspects my stack then shoves & has me covered. I call & he turns over Q-10 off. He winces and says "I thought you had A-K". (WTF okay thanks for the early holiday present!)

    Board runs out x-x-x-x-10.

    The streak is broken!! grrrrrr
    I tell myself, "all I can do it get it in good, and I got it in good."
    It doesn't really make me feel better.

    I have no problem saying nice hand when it truly is a nice hand. But man I tell ya, the words just choke off in my throat when I get sucked out on. And it always stings more when it comes on the river. If I get outplayed, that's fine, so be it, maybe I can learn something. But losing like this is the worst part of poker.
    I make a beeline to the car and peel out out because I feel myself about to tilt-buy into the $1K NLH tourney.

    This could be your WSOP diary, VG :)

    Unlucky today, and best of luck for the rest of the weekend, if you play again.

    I get into town on the 20th, and will be there until mid July.

    beats like that are what made me give up the game, save for the freeroll casino tourneys.

    I hear ya... thing is, it really isn't about the money. I get just as mad in a freeroll as in a big buy in tourney or cash game. Strangely, it doesn't get to me if I take a beat that doesn't knock me out. After all even your pocket aces are never better than an 80% favorite going into the hand, meaning that 20% of the time they're gonna lose. (Feels like a lot more than 20%, lol).
    Anyway, the point is that I want people to continue to get it in bad against me. So if they do and suck out then I congratulate them on their brilliant play to encourage future mistakes. I can get the chips back from them later, no problem. I don't like it, but I don't get tilted during the game as long as the game continues. Only if a suckout knocks me out. At that point I pretty much leap up from the table and exit stage left extremely quickly so I don't give that mf'er two chops to the throat. Outwardly I say Good game fellas, best of luck to you all as I flee the vicinity.

    In my mind I am force feeding chair legs down his gullet.

    I've won a few poker tournaments, but not an expert by any means, are you supposed to call the shove with AQs?

    My read was that he was trying to big-stack bully me. He clearly almost folded but then he sized my stack up and down before shoving. It definitely felt like he was making a move with a worse hand. I believe there is no point in making a read on someone if you don't go with the read. So I went with it. Against other players (or different circumstances against this same player) I would have absolutely no problem releasing an AQ suited. I've insta-folded a lot better than that countless times :)

    Headed back to the Rio Saturday for a $175 single table satellite or the 9am $185 mega. Either way pays $1500 in lammers plus $100 cash. That would cover a buy in to the WSOP Bracelet Event #46 $1500 NLH Bounty event, or it would cover almost two bullets into the WSOP Bracelet Event #54 $888 Crazy 8s NLH tourney. I like the bounty format because at $500 per knockout, if you knock out just 3 people you're free-rolling the entire tournament. I tend to late-reg bounty tournaments, that way when I sit down there are already some short-stacks ripe for the picking.
