Satellites, Cash Games, More Events

by Roy Winston |  Published: Jun 23, '08


I went pretty deep in the 2-7 triple draw, but not quite deep enough, but did okay in cash games and satellites over the weekend. I really enjoy playing the 1k single table satellites. I have fared well in them and I think they are good for your game because it makes you play all phases from a patient full table to short handed with ever increasing blinds.

I played some no limit cash games at the Wynn which went pretty well. I flopped a couple of sets against over pairs and got paid off. I then went back to the Rio for the 5pm HORSE satellite. Nineteen players joined me in the satellite, which was winner take all. I felt like I played well and went out in 5th place, just got a little card dead with big blinds. I am not sure I am going to play in the HORSE if I don't win a satellite. I will play the pot limit Omaha 8 or better tomorrow. I really like that game when played pot limit, but it is hard to find a game.

Although I have felt frustrated at times not placing better in the events, I have been having a great time playing in the various events. I am hopeful that the second half of the WSOP will treat me well. I will keep the update coming.
