Vegas Pt.10

No WSOP success this year. I came into the day short-stacked and vacated the building shortly into the second level when I had got to a stage where I needed a double-up to compete. The average was 150,000 and I had 50,000. Approaching the bubble with a short-stack was never going to be much fun and i made a stand with AK. I was racing against 10s and was left to race for the door with no pairing of my overs.

It's been a tough tournament which consisted of a great day one, a really tough day two and a standard day three. I'm out of pocket having refused all staking offers and footed the bill myself and this is what hurts now. But then again I'd look like a genius getting out if I had have scored big. Either way I have learnt a lot from this tournament. Ive a lot of hands I will be putting up on boards over the next few days .

My first WSOP over and I just hope I get another crack of the whip in the future. I will be older and wiser next time around, that's for sure.

Good effort in Vegas Gary was following your progress and it looked like a cash in the ME but twas not to be.
Youve actually achieved a lot so far at a young age when you think about.
