I am taking a much needed two day break from poker and don’t have the energy to write a full recap yet, but here’s a short summary of my trip to Foxwoods last week:
I went 3 for 6 in Act 2’s, which are $250 sit ‘n gos that get you into Act 3’s. All three misses were on the bubble.
I went 1 for 2 in Act 3’s, which are $1100 multitable tournaments that put 10% of the field into the WPT main event. This means I’ll be playing my first 10k event since the WSOP Main Event next week.
I washed out of the $600 and $1000 preliminary events pretty quickly.
The $1500 event was maybe the best poker I’ve ever played in my life. I know I’ve said that before, but in this particular tournament I made a lot of very good plays that I even surprised myself with. Other than one suckout in the middle of Day 1, there was no point in time where I ever put my money in behind, and I was in solid control throughout. I have never been more proud of my play.
Janeen, my parents, my sister, my brother in law and my little nephew all came up for the final two tables and I’m very satisfied that I delivered such a strong performance with them watching from the rail. It is obvious that I am also now on the radar of some well-regarded pros, as many of them either played with me or were there railing friends. It was a great day for me yesterday.
Oh, and if the title of this entry doesn’t make it obvious, I finished second in the tournament which was good for over $91,000.*
I do want to share a lot more about the past week, particularly about the $1500 event (I made some really interesting decisions) but I’m too drained right now. In short, I vowed to get back down to business at Foxwoods and it was a rousing success. I am once again a very happy bridesmaid.
