205800 going into Day 2 of WPT Championship

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Apr 20, '09

Weird day. I felt like I was playing pretty well but just continued to miss flops over and over again. I was on a rollercoaster for the first 4 levels. Then, I made a big call with AK high on the river against Erik Cajelais in a reraised pot that would've left me with just 24000 had I been wrong. Instead, I was back to 90. With 45 minutes left in the night the key hand of the day came up. Erik Cajelais opened up front to 2000 at 3/6 (75). Victor Ramdin called, Ryan Young awoke from a nap in the SB and tanked and called. I found two red kings in the BB and raised to 11000. Erik thought and called 9000 more, leaving himself about 65000. Victor folded. Ryan thought 30 seconds and announced all-in, covering both of us. I slid my remaining 83250 and Erik tanked and folded two nines. Ryan showed two black Jacks. A king came in the door and followed with a 7 and a 4. There were two clubs, so I had a little bit to sweat. Turn 9. River J. When all was said and done I had a really decent stack now going into day 2. There is a ton, ton, ton of poker to be played, so we'll see how tomorrow goes.  SS
