Thx guys, pretty stoked to have sold out my first event on CMU. I just registered via phone yesterday and am entrant #102. En route to Chicago via Toronto right now. Will post updates as I can during the event to http://twitter.com/veeRob

Funny story… I work on the Big Game and introduced myself to Tony G yesterday. I don’t think he really knew who I was. lol :)

Staring at my first opponent now. He looks like a grinder. Was hoping for a fish. Oh well a lot of play I got work to do.

Made it through to day 2! One more win and we’re in the money.

The first match was pretty tough. My opponent was a competent player and would not let me see many flops. I lost a big pot early when I held 9T on a 97695 board. I let him bet my hand the whole way, and he of course got there with 87. I was able to double up when I 5-bet all in from the BB w/66, and he called with AQ. That huge flip gave me the lead, and I closed it out when I held 97 on a JJ9 board and faded his QT.

The second match started awful. I held KThh and check called his bets on a 2-heart board. We checked the river and he showed down an overplayed 88 that turned out to be good. I doubled up when I held 96 on a 965 flop and 5-bet all in. He called with Q9 and my hand held. My final hand was JT on a KQxA board vs his KQ. Faded the 4-outer.

Should be an interesting day tomorrow as I have a flight home scheduled for 9:30pm… if I win 2 matches, I’ll miss my flight and work the next day. Good problem to have though, I guess. lol

If that’s for real, that’s pretty funny. Guy couldn’t believe 5bet shoved with sixes, but hey, a pair is a pair.

Just had some Giordano’s pizza for lunch, so the next guy has no shot lol. Actually, I may be half asleep by then. :)

LoL Shoulda had Lou’s but Giordano’s is alright too. Don’t forget to have a good beef sandwich before you go too (with the peppers) from portillo’s or Jimmy’s Hot Dogs. Or you can also find a place that sells pizza puffs (they are to die for LoL)

Aside from that, GL man keep it up.

Won my 4pm. Super nice guy, but he made moves at the wrong time. Guaranteed $4,275 for making top 16. Next match at 9pm. Off to go figure out my flight alternatives.
