Thanks. I cashed and made it to day two, but I have like 5 big blinds.

Poker tournaments are normally dumb, but how anybody enjoys these WSOP events is beyond me. Lots of lines, and forms.

I don't know a way around it, but having to come back tomorrow to play a super short stack is really annoying. I might not bother.

IDK, maybe there should be some way the short stacks can all pool their money and gamble for more chips so you don't have to waste your time.

EDIT: Yes GWAE. That's what I used my credit for. So my mincash of $1500 will actually be a profit of $1200 which is pretty nice. But it's another silly thing in the wsop. The min cashes are really low if you actually buy in.


You go girl! Anything a man can do, you can do better!!


I would obviously go play it tomorrow. Sucks that chances are youíll be out quickly (youíre a bad player, at least compared to me :) ). But thereís also the chance you get really lucky and run it up. Idk how high the prizes go, but if youíre already getting at least $2700 back on your $1500, then Iím sure the higher payouts are significantly higher.

Then again, if you gotta deal with lines, forms, etc. etc. and everyone else at the table has like 100x your stack (doubtful but what do I know about poker, other than I flopped quad 10ís once, so Iím pretty good), then your equity might be like $3 shekels or something and #NotWorth.



Maybe at the end of the night, anyone can continue to play (would be predominantly short stacks) against players from other tables so they can either bust out or double up. ? Although that could (likely?) potentially lead to people dumping chips, unless you cap the starting stacks.

Did you have to make it to day 2 for cash? If not I would have been shoving with anything decent at the end to either double or not have to show up.

I almost killed one of those families running into their buggies on the road. There were signs up, they had an orange reflector on the back, but that buggy was almost invisible. It doesn't make a lot of sense they have to leave their home for work, I've seen lots of them at Aldis in the past using up food stamps, the old man knows they're a fraud. Their society is dependent on ours of course.



Orthodox Jews are also dependent on welfare.
I'm pretty amazed that I have to support their God fantasies with my tax dollars

Well I decided I wasn't setting no alarm but I woke up just in time.

Stole the blinds and antes once. Then called an all in with kq vs j5 and lost.

I'd have had about 12 big blinds if I won. Idk. I guess it worth going.

It cost me $300 to get in. Cashed out $1600. Still hate tournaments.

I like playing tournaments but I cant get deep. I play well enough to min cash in about 70% of the ones I play. I guess I play too tight. Sometimes what gets me is I may only play a tournament once every 6 weeks. I hate getting my money in at 50/50 or 60/40 because I dont know when the next time I get to play is. Probably a bad way to think but I dont know.

Sounds like you play to cash rather than play to win. All the money is on the ft of a tournament, Iím going to bust early or build a stack.

people make me sick. Riots in Memphis injuring many police over a police shooting against a person that was using a car to ram police cars and then he gets out of his car with a weapon. I hope they arrest every single person involved with the riots.

Now you know what is meant by Memfrica.
This allusion of Memphis and Africa is more than just lingual.
The guy in the car was black, so he is in the right and white army of occupation is in the wrong.

Total failure by Old Navy employee
A Black woman leaves an old Navy store
Old Navy employee follows her out and accuses her of stealing
At first the Black lady is chuckling because she is innocent
The Old Navy employee, Stephanie says she stole the shirt she is wearing and they have video evidence
Oh boy, it gets really bad as Stephanie grabs the innocent person and wont let go
Amazing the hate some people have against an innocent black woman.

Old Navy fired Stephanie and apologized to the innocent Black lady
