Venetian $540

Congrats to Hoyazo for making the money in the six-handed WSOP event. Nice job bro.

I played in the Venetian $540 today and busted 90th out of 563 entrants. First in this bad boy was $90K, a very healthy payday, with top 40 coming in the money. Final hand was AQ. Blinds were 1000/2000/300 Hijack made it $8000, I jammed on a resteal. The chip leader in the BB wakes up with KK. Hijack folded Ax so I miss a two outer.

This is why tournaments are frustrating. Nine hours of play zero payout. I make a good play on the resteal and I get unlucky. Oh well, I really did enjoy playing in this event and I will definitely take some more shots in the near future at one of these big payouts.

I stayed aggressive most of the way through, including stealing for three levels when I was absolutely card dead to stay even, I won a crucial coin flip in Level 6 to double up and get slightly above average, and I did a good job of stealing and restealing at least once an orbit as things started getting late. Also I only had to open push in late position twice to stay alive in Level 6 which was right before the coin flip, so I played well enough to mostly stay out of danger.

My game and this structure works out well I think, and I really feel I can final table one of these before too much longer. Some good luck and timing in the later stages are the key. Man get a stack and lean on the tighties as it approaches the bubble and you can really build a stack to go deep. Soon!

Back to cash tables for a little while tomorrow afternoon, then blogger fun tomorrow night and Saturday. I've see a few people, I look forward to seeing the rest tomorrow.
