Back home again
This week has went really fast, and it’s been strange. On sunday, I cashed a few tournaments, the biggest being 4th in the 100r turbo for $10k or so. Tuesday I spent hanging out with JohnnyBax and Sheets. They’re both really cool, down to earth guys who know a lot about tournament poker. I hung out with some other friends on tuesday night before getting a phone call from the PVT guys asking me to fly out on Wednesday for a live game. The plan was to fly out, arrive at 11am, and leave that night at 10pm.
Well, obviously, it didn’t work out that way. First of all, the plane had to make a stop in Denver to refuel due to “strong headwinds”, delaying me about 2 hours. It took about 8.5 hours from gate to gate, the longest I’ve ever spent in a plane not going to Australia. I arrived just in time for the game. It was a decent lineup, 5 PVT pros and poor amateur Dustin, who got to sit to my right all day. I just wasn’t in the mood to fold, and put a lot of pressure on him. I ended stuck a little bit but it should make for a good batch of content.
After the cash game, me, Vince, Brad, and Mike played a 4-handed SNG. I played very well, making possibly 2 mistakes the whole game. We had to start increasing the blinds quickly as the game went on and it got late. It was understandable though – the staff was tired, it was “heavily” snowing, and everyone wanted to get home. I ended up getting heads up with Brad. We played about 3 hands hu before the match ended. I shipped 13bb with K7, Brad thinks, thinks, thinks, and flips over one king, then another. Niiiiiiiice slowroll Brad . All the flights out of LV get cancelled due to the “storm of the century” dropping a whopping 3.5″ of snow on the ground, so I end up spending the night and leaving the next day.
I’m not sure what I’m going to do this weekend as it’s really up to the weather at this point. I had plans today but most of them had to be cancelled due to the snow. There’s a cool PVT announcement today that I’ll write more about once it’s been officially made public. It’s something I’ve been working closely on with my buddy Matt and will really tie the PVT experience together. Check your emails if you’re a PVT member and if not, keep checking here!
