35,500 Chips and a Chair

Well, Day 2 didnt go as planned. My table was pretty damn good all day, and I chipped up to 71K at dinner break. After dinner I couldn't find a hand and when I did find spots I got re-popped. Finally I woke up with KK and a short-sack pushed in on me with AKs. We ran it for about 42 thousand chips and I lost. Would have had 80K to finish the day but instead I have 35,500 and am a short stack...For some reason I am still in good spirts. Back to Back Day 3's in the main event is kind of cool and I certainly have more than enough room for a comeback.

Gonna relax for a few days and hopefully run good when we resume

Great job so far at the WSOP. You got your money in at the right time, that's all you can do.

A lot of big name players have busted already, and Phil Ivey, the favorite among the pros to win this year, has about half your stack, so you're doing fine.

The same guys that doubled up and/or busted people as underdogs will now feel "on top of the world" and will probably splash around even more than they used to, so just continue to play your game, and you'll nail them.

Give them plenty of opportunities to make mistakes, and they'll make them. The rest is up to the poker gods.

They are simply words of encouragement.

I have no intentions toward Jesse, so there is no need for you to feel threatened.
