Playing WSOPC Caesars Today + New Watch

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Apr 28, '08

It's about 1:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Later today we'll all play the WSOPC event at Caesar's. I finished 21st in this event last year, so I wouldn't mind improving on that finish. Yesterday I played a pretty big slate of online MTTs. I had four tiny cashes which weren't good enough to get me to break even, but I did make a couple of buy ins playing cash to make it a winning day. Roommates Eric Baldwin and Adam Geyer both made the final table of the Caesar's 2000 which was sick. They finished 9th and 5th respectively for decent lil paydays. Congrats to them. Also congrats to Jon Little who was able to fade all of the other players in the WPT Championship to lock up the WPT Player of the Year. This is a remarkable accomplishment. Jon had three final tables (two of them televised) on the season which makes me incredibly jealous. I am just 3 for 23 cashing in WPT events in my career with 13th place at WPT Mirage in 2007 being my highest finish :( It's allllllll good though. I'll knock one off soon.

In other news I purchased a new watch today. After a few hours of searching online I decided to play it safe and go with a Breitling. I settled on the Breitling Aeromarine Super Avenger with diamond bezel. The face is pretty damn big, and that is what I really wanted most out of this watch, so I'm very happy. It feels good to finally buy myself something. I think I could get used to it. I just don't know what to buy.
