Going to Day Two at Venetian

Man 14 hours of playing tournament poker especially when many levels of it are push monkey fun time, and I'm beat. I got sucked out on, I sucked out, it was a absolute roller coaster ride all day and night long.

I think we started with 536 and I go back tomorrow for the final two tables with 17 of us left. First place is a just a shade north of $79K. If I bust out first I only get around $2200 so some hopeful good luck and timing is going to make the difference in pretty large sums of money. Luck and Timing.

I have $256K so I'm not that far below average but we'll be ballin' with blinds at 8000/16000/3000. The Venetian structure is not as deep as it may sound and where they really get you is in the antes. It will also be very interesting to see how the play is once both tables get short-handed.

I'll do a more extensive write-up when the deal is closed.

Congrats Don,

With 4 pm Day 2 start and 7 pm Mookie start your Buddydank Radio debut will either have to be postponed or undoubtably be spectacular.

That's no small swing from 17th to 1st. Gotta love when the pot is 1/5th of your stack before any action.

We should get someone to live-feed to BuddyDank radio from the Venetian.

Play strong, and good luck.

Best of luck big man. May you get starting cards like Astin, may you play ATC like Chad, and may you hit flops, turns and rivers like Bayne on your way to victory. Can't wait to hear all about it.
