Limped into Day 2 of Event #51

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Jun 29, '08

I am on to day 2 of the 1500 dollar HORSE event with, lol, 1100 chips. The starting stack was 3000, and we'll be playing 6/1200 LHE when we return. I'll have less than one bet. I had like 4 bets but got crippled in a stud pot against Steve Diano late in the night. Had a really good time playing this event. Only recognized John Phan, this kid Eric "jakz101" Crain, Tommy Hang, 2008 omaha 8 bracelet winner Andrew Brown and a couple others at my table over the course of the day. I will also be playing the 1500 NLHE event tomorrow, so I might have to blind out in that one for a bit if I go on a heater with my last big bet in the HORSE tourney. There are like 190 players left of the 805 who started, so average is like 13000. There have been many better comeback stories than this would be, so I'm not giving up. Hopefully I draw the button in hold 'em tomorrow. Too tired to write more. Sorry blogs are getting shorter because the Series is starting to wear on me.
