wsop didnt work out so well. but good news.

i busted pretty quick at day 2, probably in about 20 minutes or so. i raised 1st in on the button, mueller was in the big blind and was threatening me while i was counting my chips "you already took to long". i still raised to about 11k with blinds 1500/3000 -500, with A9. small blind instantly reraised me for most of my stack (mueller folded and laughed "told you, you were taking to long"), he had over 100k, i had just over 40k. i felt i was priced in and put all my chips in the pot.

small blind had 33, flop came 838, GG me. was a big pot, and i win this flip, i am sitting nice... oh well.

afterwords, i grabbed some nachos from the poker kitchen, and waited for a few friends to come on over. me and ZaiGezunt sat in a 2/5nl game, which we both killed. we ran very hot, i took an extra $1400 off of table and he took about $1800 in about 2 or 3 hours.

we then decided to go play the bellagio $1k nightly. it was me, Zai, and Mag: they both donked out early. i got bad beat with about 13 players left to lose a big chunk of my stack JJ to A8 all in pre. then same guy open shoved a few hands later and i had AQ, so i shoved, dude behind me also shoved. open shover had KK and over shove/caller, had AQ as well. KK held, and i was crippled.

i stole blinds a few times, then i made the final table, and got UTG just as i paid the big blind last hand. so after i pay the extra blinds, i have maybe 4 big blinds at final table. 10 left and 9 pay. i played perfect SNG strategy, picked up blinds a few times real fast. and again the next round. then i won a coin flip with 5 big blinds... and won another, started catching some cards, next thing i knew i was in 2nd place with 146k and 5 players left. they offered a 5 way chop, which i accepted for almost $22k.

so all in all a fun and a nicely profitable day.

wow great job man!

what were the details with the chop? were you all pretty close in chips at the time or were the blinds just too high?
