Out Mid-Pack

Indeed, I was in Event #15, $1,000 Ladies, which featured 1,190 players (oh-for-two on prop bets now, dammit). No time to talk this morning and I have plenty to share.

The quick story on my tourney. Started with 2,000. Jumped up to about 3,000 early by swiping a couple of pots and then flopping a boat. Went card-dead. For three hours. Got my last 2,100 in with A-K against a loose player's A-J, only to see the board come something like 3-5-6-6-5 for an ugly chop. Whiffed on every baby pair and connector I saw (and didn't see many in playable spots). Stole a pot with 8-6. Had lots of blackjack hands, either in the double-down or surrender versions. Finally had to defend my last chips with 10-6 suited, but didn't connect.

Ugly structure... more on that later. I went out somewhere about 620th, and there were no celebrities or big names at my table. Cheryl Hines was two tables away, not that I was really rubber-necking the other tables.

Nice Job Haley. I played the ladies WSOP in 2007 with similar results. I did nothing wrong but as you mention the structure is horrible. Much better structures for the Venetian/Caesar
s tourneys going on.

Yeah, once the series is over with, I'll write a longer post on the topic of the Ladies Event. Let's just say that it's a one-and-done for me,and I only played it this once to claim the moral high ground in future arguments. ;-)

I'm hoping to play a Caesars sometime in the next few days.
