Bigger and softer

The Pot Limit Omaha World Championship had quite a few more entries than I expected, and it seemed like most of the new faces were very looses and aggressive, which is not a style I recomend. Unfortunately I was very card dead the whole day and the blinds finally forced me to get my last 25k all-in on the flop with top-two against a semi-wrap straight draw durring level nine, and that was it for me. I do like what I saw though and hope to see more PLO tournaments offered throughout the year, as it would seam to offer much better EV than in years past. Many of the young internet players seemed to be using online shortstacked 6-handed cash game tactics, which are far to loose and aggressive for this type of tournament "IMO".

Once again I played a $1500 NL and was done before first level was finished this time. I am going to take a shot a the $1500 limit shootout, cause it is the last one and its a shootout. I will also be playing the All-in Energy Drink freeroll and Phil Ivey's Charity event at the Nugget that night…busy day.

Today i had some free time, as I always do on the $1500 NL days, so was able to watch a movie. I highly recomend "Charlie Wilsons War", Tom Hanks and Philip Seymour Hoffman were amazing!
