  • Status of progress O8b Event #

    At the end of day 1, with 197 players remaining of 918 that started, I have about 14K in chips. That's a little short of the average stack of 21,000. I will begin tomorrow in the Orange section at table 69 seat 5 at 2:00pm.

    90 get paid, so tomorrow will be an exciting day.

    They announced today this has been the largest Omaha Hi/Lo WSOP event.

    I hope my next report will be the exiting news of the final table.

    Will update some more later. I didn't have many haqnds to play but I maximized the value on the hands I won. I was never below 4K in chips after starting with 4500. I was up to 20K a few times but had one player that seemed to target me as his ATM. He played some terrible hands that no one would enter the pot with but seemed to get there the 4 or 5 times he went to the river with me.

    I had a very tight image and that allowed me to steal a few pots at some critical junctures.

    Best of luck to you. This was the event that i had hoped to play this year, it just never materialized, but i have been keeping up with it. Marion do you use twitter? A lot of players are using www.twitter.com to update their status as the tournies go along.

    I'm going to try to keep up with you as the day goes along, and look forward to seeing you roll on to the final table, and take this thing down. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!
