Started getting a lot more excited about the trip now with only a few days before i fly out on Sunday. Its very unlikely i will be playing the main event this year. In fact i think the only way i would buyin direct or buyin to a live stt satellite would be if i won $10-$15k in my first week out there. Its also unlikely i will play any wsop side events with the same reasoning. Im fine with that and in fact hope i relax more knowing im not in anything too chunky !
The plan is to play $330 - $550 deep stack games in Caesars and the Venetian at least every other day and fill in the gaps with cash games probably 1/3 and 2/5. Maybe 5/10 if i run well or maybe Bellagio $1000 tourney. I should meet up with a few people whose stays overlap with mine and if i get bored of poker it will just be longer days by the pool instead !
Anyway after hardly playing and having the odd terrible session my month has finally recovered to level. Today was probably a good time to have a good cash session but at the end of the day my profit came from winning 2/2 coinflips which most of this month i would have won 0 or 1/2 at best in a session. They are below cos i like to remind myself i can run well still as it seems a long time ago ! I also finished 6/170 in a freeroll for 20,000 airmiles (bout £200), bit gutted as top 2 were worth over £1000 and close to £2000 but was a fast structure and i probably didnt push hard enough for a change at the final table.
2/4 PL omaha
