    Every year I am reminded why I hate tournament poker, and then 11 months pass and I return for the same frustration.

    Being the stone bubble boy after you've spent 13 hours playing is really annoying. It's not even the money, but rather the knowledge that you achieved the absolute worst result -- maximum time invested for zero return.

    This isn't quite as bad as 2012 where I lost 4 consecutive hands to become the $5k Limit Holdem bubble boy (also my first event of the year), but it's close.

    Had I cashed, it would have been a nice accomplishment given that I was below average in chips almost the whole tournament.

    Great way to start out the WSOP.

    I do get 3 days to calm down before my next event, so there's that.

    Pick yourself up and on to the next one!! Sounds like you played well, just didn't work in your favor this time. They all hurt, but it's the $10k limit that REALLY REALLY counts...that and the ME.

    I busted with 30 minutes left to bag/tag in the 8game. Played a PLO hand where I was 75% favorite all-in on the turn for 70k (I had him covered by like 12k) and lost....Chip leader going into Day2 only had like 92k. Was my first ever WSOP Event.....it hurt a bit but gotta move on!!
