Event #1

Did everybody recovered from all the brutal beats and coolers during last nights WPBT Event#1? Man I know beats from rigged online poker sites are bad but last night was the worse I can remember. I'd guess at least 40% of players went out on a bad beat which to me is just a slight bit peculiar. Congrats to Raveen the cash game specialists taking down the big prize.

I'm glad everyone enjoyed the odds from the POY. Of course I fudged them and I'm versed enough to know that no way the field is 18/1 but my goal was accomplished and was to generate interest. Well since the odds were so much fun for everyone I'll be updating them as we go through the year.

I have not yet set up the Big Game for February and I'm still undecided whether or not to continue. I was hoping for at least 30 runners and last time after a lot of promotion we still only got 19. Are enough people interested in playing?

I'm close to cashing big in a MTT. I'm getting deep but not quite to the money as the bad beats, coolers, and coin flips are just not going my way. I do think my MTT game is improving one of these days the breaks are going to go my way. Maybe it will be Saturday when me, Weak, Chad, and Smokkee head down to the Venetian to tackle the $550.

10K in starting chips and 40 minute levels should make for a good event. There have been over 100 runners every Saturday for the last month so I'm sure with it being Super Bowl weekend we'll see a record field. First place might go as high as $25K.

Lots of cash games on the slate before Saturday as Vegas should be rocking with lots of donks in town for Super Bowl. I plan on putting in long hours Tuesday through Friday trying to take advantage of some mediocre play by our beloved guests. It will be nice to get a jump start heading into February and also to help the bankroll as Weak and I get ready to head to the LA Poker Classic on the 11th.

Stay tuned for updated odds and hopefully everyone is staying profitable.

Don't see any reason to discontinue the "Big Game" so long as there is interest... 19 people is not a bad turnout for the biggest buy-in Blogger tournament.

Chad mentioned there were $130 single table sng satellites into the Venetian $550. i called to find out more.

they run Fri night and Sat morning before the tournament. top 2 get seats. they start 10 handed with 1500 chips, 15 min levels. blinds start at 25/50. so, i'm planning to stop by there Fri night to give it a shot.

I also think the Big Game should continue. I personally think that 19 is an impressive turnout for the buy-in. Especially when you consider that the Hoy only got 15 players last night at less than 1/3 of the buy-in.

Of course if I go busto in the next couple weeks and find it too difficult to deposit on FT, I'll probably change my tune.
