WSOP 2019: $1500 H.O.R.S.E. Sweat Thread

June 5, 2019

First off, some shoutouts to some locals that have had success so far:

-Bulletproof cashed the Employee Event for a little profit.

-Sandman final tabled the $2500 Triple Draw tournament for the second year in a row, this time finish in 5th (3rd last year) for just over $30k. What a boss.

-Joker finished 120th out of 6100+ runners in the WSOP $600 No Limit Deep Stack for ~$2600 and JJ Neville from Kitsap finished 84th in the same event for ~$3500.

-Billy Dubz’ significant other participated in a 3-way chop for $14k each in the $300ish Omaha 8 or Better tournament at the Orleans.

And I’m looking to do damage today! Amazingly, I have a Palace regular (no nickname) at my starting table. Unreal. Joker and Ducky are playing this event also, but probably late regging.

10k starting stacks. Hour long levels.

H.O.R.S.E.

Let’s go.

Stack updates on breaks here.

Note: I’ll update my chip count occasionally via the MyStack app, so my stack s will automatically show up in the PokerNews coverage. But don’t get excited if you see my name near the top. All that means is I’m updating my stack myself and no one else!

Just know this: trending above 10k = good and trending below 10k = bad.

Break #1: 9550

Nothing notable to report. My table is full with no one I recognize outside of the local player, so no world beaters are going to be starting there. That’s nice.

I won a decent-sized Razz hand and lost a decent-sized Stud Hi hand.

Best hand so far, it folds to small blind, he raises and I 3-bet AJhh and double barrel on KT8cc4 before he donks on the queen of club river. For some reason, I’m not convinced he has a flush here and I will fold to a 3-bet so I end up raising my straight and he just calls and my hand is good.

Just lost five blinds with AQ right before the break and that’s about it so far.

Just sat back down and my fellow Palace player has been moved off my table. Good luck to him.

Break #2: 2100

I’m on fumes. The first 20 minutes or so of this tournament were fun but nothing good has happened since then. I’ve lost every significant pot I’ve played with some particularly gross runouts in Omaha and Razz.

I’m coming back to 8.5 bigs so I’m in bad shape here.

Joker is sitting on 14k.

Break #3:

Wait. There’s no break yet. I’m out. Got up to 3000 and busted in Stud with KT-TAJx-x. I got all in on 4th street vs split jacks that never improved. Pretty frustrating day and start to my summer.

Joker just reached dinner break with 23k. Ducky still doesn’t have a seat. Dude is going to sit down with 25 bigs. What a baller. I’ll update this post with their stacks throughout the rest of the night.

Not sure if I’m going to play cash tonight. I have an 11 AM start at Aria for their $470 O.E. tournament tomorrow, so I’m not gonna travel or play super late. I would like to play the 20/40 Mix here at the Rio but they have one game with 18 on the wait list right now? Same with 20/40 o8. Not sure what’s going on there and currently I don’t feel much like investigating. There’s a basketball game on T.V. right now so I think I’m gonna watch that for a bit.

9:21 PM:

Joker 35k

Ducky 30k

Sandman 40k

End of Day 1:

Joker 25.5k

Ducky 23.1k
