    The good news is that I played my best poker of the WSOP today... Check out my stack sizes at the start of each level:

    1. 7,500
    2. 7,150
    3. 6,700
    4. 11,825
    5. 19,025
    6. 36,175
    7. 36,050
    8. 33,850

    Halfway through Level 8 I had ~ 36,000 chips. Blinds/antes were 300/600 (75) when an extremely LAG high stakes cash game player was in the HJ and raised to 1,600. This opponent loved to three-bet and four-bet, so I was hoping to give him some rope. Instead of my normal re-raise to ~ 4,400, I decided to make it 5,500 with A-K suited, hoping to convince him that I was weak and really wanted him to fold. He took the bait and four-bet to 24,000, leaving only ~ 6,000 behind. I went all in and he tanked, not wanting to call his last 6,000 chips into a pot of ~61,000. Finally he called with A-4 offsuit. A four came on the river and left me crippled. 72% of the time I would have finished this first day with somewhere in around 65,000 to 70,000 chips, which would be nearly triple the average.

    In less than an orbit, I managed to work my way back up to 18,000 chips. It folded to the SB and he raised. I called with K-Q offsuit, since I had an awkward stack size and position. I didn't want to re-raise and have to call an all-in four-bet, and I had too many chips to just shove. The flop came Q-10-8 with two to a flush. He checked, I bet the pot and he called. The turn was a 6, he checked, I committed myself, he raised and I called. He showed 9-7 for a straight and I was out.

    I played my best poker all day today. I played a very low risk strategy and managed my chip stack very well. Except for the very last BvB hand, I never got my money in bad. And I never was involved in a single all-in pre-flop race. Every time I got my money in I was between a 72% and 100% favorite. I am finally playing the strategy I have been wanting to play, with enough mental focus to not tilt and/or deviate from my gameplan. I am definitely ready to play in the Main Event.

    Shawn Glines (sprstoner) also did very well today. Check out his chip stacks at the start of each level:

    1. 7,500
    2. 7,500
    3. 7,475
    4. 7,475
    5. 20,675
    6. 16,700
    7. 34,000
    8. 39,700
    9. 54,700

    Good luck to Shawn tomorrow (today I guess), and any other BadBeaters still alive in this field.

    You didn't say what you had in the big pot. I assume it was something like A/K. Correct? I can't understand why you are looking for a call here. You lost when he hit the 4 but your shove had no fold equity. He was getting at least 8 to1 on his money to call his last 6000. At this point he was getting the odds to call with any 2, and all you really had was A high.

    Yes, I had A-K suited. He had A-4 offsuit. And I had caught him four-betting/committing his entire well above average stack with basically nothing.

    I think you've completely missed the point of this hand. I had him dominated and was a 72% favorite to have a stack of three times average going into day 2. I want his chips in the middle with mine here every time. If I had won this hand, I would have had a nice shot at making a final table in this event.

    Here are a few interesting hands I played in yesterday's event...


    1. UTG LAG player raised, two others called, and I called from the button with:



    Flop came:



    Everyone checked to me, and I bet two thirds of the pot. UTG raiser called and everyone else folded. Turn came:



    UTG raiser checked to me, I bet two thirds of the pot and he check-raised all in. I called and he showed:



    My hand held, but he didn't have enough chips to double me up.


    2. Someone raised to 600, and I called with Q-Q. This was an aggressive table, and the odds of it being re-raised after I called seemed very high. Another player called the 600, and then a blind raised to 2,200. The original raiser called and I made it 10,000, which covered everyone involved. They all folded disgustedly, and I added more than 5,000 chips to my stack.


    3. I called an early position raise in late position with:



    The flop came:



    Original raiser checked to me, and I bet the pot. Normally I would bet about half the pot here, but this same opponent had check-raised me the last time we played a hand together, so I wanted to appear more scared and weaker this time. He called and the turn came:



    He checked, and I decided to bet smaller this time and see if I could get him to go nuts. He check-raised all in and I called. He showed:



    My hand held.


    4. Later after I got crippled, I only had 11 BB and looked down to see:



    I didn't want to open shove and have everyone fold, so I raised to 1,525 at the 300/600 (75) level. Two players called, and the flop came:



    I bet and the next guy shoved. I called, and my hand held over his:

    Shawn started Level 9 with 54,700 chips, but lost his first pot with Q-Q. It wasn't a huge pot though.

    He started Level 10 with 50,500 chips. Then he lost a 14K pot with A-K of spades versus 10-9 of spades.

    He started Level 11 with 40,900 chips, which is still healthy at 36 BB. 1,941 players started, and 318 are left. 198 spots pay...
