Things are Hotting Up!

posted in Live WSOP 2013 Action |


You may have seen in the news this week that Las Vegas is about to reach some record temperatures over the next couple of days. In fact, Death Valley is expected to get as hot as 134 degrees Fahrenheit – 56 Celsius to you and me. See above a photo I took of my car dashboard yesterday.

Despite the temperature hitting record highs outside, things are beginning to ‘Hot up’ on the poker table too.

Yesterday I was in the $1,500 bracelet event that attracted 2,816 runners, giving a massive prize pool of $4,224,000. I played steady poker and turned my starting stack of $4,500 chips to over $40,000 over a duration of 14 hours.

Unfortunately, I had pocket 9s and the flop came 9, Jack, 5. I hear you say unfortunately? Well a chap went all in with King, Queen as he thought I was bluffing with my raise. Needless to say, as 10 came as the turn card giving him a straight and me a ticket home.

I came 320th when the money payouts start at position 297.

Oh well! There is always today to look forward to.
