I need to do something big in the main event or I am going to have my first losing trip to the WSOP. I lost 45k in the 1 mixed game I played this week at Bellagio. And after the week of four cashes in the tournaments I failed to cash in the last few.
Today in the main event we started with 30k in chips. I was down to 20k in the first 30 mins. I had some big starting hands that I either played poorly or got unlucky. Inside level 2, I got down to 10k and it seemed like this was going to be a short tournament. I was actually on my phone in the middle of level two searching for flights home that left this evening. I hovered around 10k for a few hours and then the last two levels I just rallied straight from 10k to 44k without showing down a hand. Wow, that felt good. The tables were fairly easy so its no big thing. It is just a good feeling after starting out so bad.
Day 2 is on Friday. I will be looking to play some cash at bellagio in the mean time.
Cash Games: $-74,000
