    Well, this was kind of a weird day of poker.

    I small-balled myself into sitting pretty much at average chips the entire day.

    There was no major pot that I won. I just had a good record with winning hands where I saw the flop.

    One interesting hand was in the final few hours.

    A European kid two seats to my left opened UTG with a min-raise of 1200 at 300/600/75. I had KsJs and flatted. This Euro kid liked to open a lot pre, but tended to be rather straightforward postflop, and gave up pretty easily if he missed, making a hand like KsJs easier to play. An old man with a weird playstyle called from the SB. A short-stacked Asian woman called from the BB.

    Flop: 9s4s3d

    Pot: 5550

    Old man fired 2k into the pot. He was semi-short, and I was willing to gamble with him or the BB if they got aggro. The one person I was afraid of was the Euro kid, who had me covered.

    The BB went all in for 6400.

    The Euro kid thought about it for awhile, acted kind of strangely, and then just called.

    I thought about what to do. I was afraid that if I called, the old man might jam behind me. Even if he didn't, if I didn't hit the turn, I was afraid the Euro kid flopped a set and would hit me with a huge bet, perhaps all-in because the pot would already be well over 20k, and I think I would have only had like 28k behind.

    I decided to let it go. The old man quickly folded.

    The Asian lady tabled Q9. The Euro kid tabled 44. I was right, he had a set.

    Turn was a blank, river was the flush card. Had I gambled here, I would have won a monster pot and had about 80k, which would have been among the leading stacks at the time.

    I briefly touched 50k near the end of the day, but then went card dead, made an ill-timed late position steal that ran into two big hands in the blinds, and flopped poorly on the final hand of the day. That left me with 38600.

    There are 350 people left (maybe a few less than that), and 324 spots pay. I have slightly below average chips.

    We restart at 2pm.

    Small victory at this point, but I have now cashed at least once in every WSOP I've played, going back to 2005. #pfa53
