My WSOP 2009 is beginning to feel a lot like my WSOP 2008. I’m 0 for 4 and counting in the WSOP events, and 0 for 6 overall. I’ve won a bit of money in the sit ‘n go’s, but not nearly enough to offset the drubbing in the multitables.
I feel I’m playing pretty well overall, but I’m very unhappy with my bustout hand in the $2000 NL Event, which took place less than an hour ago. I played it like shit.
One thing I’ve noticed this year is that the quality of overall play seems high. The younger, more aggressive players seem to have multiplied. Internet-ish openraises of 2.3x and frequent three-bets have been fairly standard at my tables. I have sat a lot of difficult tables, including two hellacious ones that were so tough that they were definitely not +EV for me personally. Since I have yet to go especially deep in any of these tournaments, that says something about the quality of the fields.
I hope there will be better news soon.
Keep your chin up! It just takes one streak of moderately good cards combined with your own good play to kickstart your WSOP and make it a successful year!
Tbh, I’ll be very surprised if you don’t make a deep run in at least one of the events this year. Just try and stay in a positive state of mind. 🙂
Your day will come……In your line of work it has always been the darkest before the dawn,,,,,,,,,, Stay focused and on course……….
