On to day 2 of Event #31 with 58200 chips. The average is in the neighborhood of 67000. We're in the money and 76 players remain. I won't detail any hands until after the tournament is over, but I will say that I ran incredibly, incredibly hot and am lucky to still be alive. I was a sick 5 for 5 in coinflips and also doubled through Eric "p3achy_keen" Liu with AQ vs his KK AIPF. QxxAx. Played with a lot of other good players today including Lee Watkinson, Alex "AJKHoosier1" Kamberis, Josh "PBDrunks" Van Duyn, John Racener, and WSOP bracelet winner Ian Johns. Ian was a really cool dude and was nice enough to talk some LHE strategy with me, which I appreciated. Hopefully I make the final table. This 6 handed tournament has been a lot of fun so far. The structure is fantastic as the blinds will be just 8/1600 (200) when we return tmw.

Congrats to my friend Phil "OMGClayAiken" Galfond for winning the 5000r PLO event for over four-fifths of a million dollars tonight.

The cash makes our household a hawt 11 for 61 attempts in the money in the 2008 WSOP.
