Travelling shoes are back on and got Irish soil underneath.
Almost missed my flight, what’s new eh? But finally in Dublin I met “flushdraw” aka tony and we get the car out and drove down to Waterford. Thanks for the company Tony, nice with some company, where supposed to have 2 Danish in the car to but they never turned up.
Friday 16, Day one Main event:
15 000 starting stack
1 H clock
Started off well, first 3 hours of play I managed to spin my stack up to 74 k! Had absolutely no good hands but decided to play as I had, after a couple of calls where I have to show the table realises I got a very wide range of hands and it got a bit harder to mess around but I was chipleader and that’s good enough. But all good last short, I got AA cracked and lost a huge pot, hand after I had to lay down JJ after both big prebet and flop bet. Then I tilted away another 20 K of HUNGER, cant believe as hotel don’t serve things to eat. Anyway down to 45 k and stayed there long, -+ 10 k. Fair enough. Droped in the end, couldn’t keep my focus up without some energy to the body and brain and ended up bagging 37 k for tomorrows game. Average is 24K so better go out there and do some job pretty quick. And I will, we are seated same table as we break and that’s an ok table, full of potential double up possibilities.
Am dead tired now its 07 here and I have to stay awake another hour to get breakfast and play resume at 14:00.
Just when we started off 19:30 to play 8 levels a 1 hr.
