    Memorable day at the WSOP for me.

    Sat down and after a mediocre first 90 minutes, I started getting a ton of hands preflop, and a lot of them were holding up. Not a ton of action on them, but it added up, and my 7500 stack became 19k before long.

    The most interesting player at the table was an old super-rich guy named John Morgan. You can read about my experiences with him here: https://pokerfraudalert.com/forum/sh...old-girlfriend

    After hitting a high of 20900, I stopped getting hands. The few hands I did get -- or the few times I attempted to enter pots with mediocre holdings -- I ended up losing. The table became very aggro, and yet I was either getting dealt trash or missing the flop and getting raised when I bet.

    I dwindled down to about 9200 after hours of frustration, but I saw that the table was breaking soon, which gave me optimism. Though it was a fun table from an entertaining conversation standpoint, I was looking for a fresh start at a table where I'd have a better image. At this table, I had the image of a guy who couldn't win a hand for hours.

    As I've said many times before, I hate being moved tables when I'm doing well, but I love being moved when I'm struggling. Indeed, my first hand after being moved was JJ, and I shoved over a raiser and cold-caller (blinds were 250/500/50 at this point), and they both folded.

    I then ran my stack up quickly. I was dealt other good hands preflop, and I either hit the flop or bet people off when I didn't have it.

    I had two interesting hands involving 33 I was dealt within 10 minutes of one another.

    On the first 33, I was in the cutoff 26.5k and I flatted a raise to 1300 from early position, where the guy had about 13k. Unfortunately, the button raised to like 4100, and then early position shoved, so it was an automatic fold. Early turned over 77, button turned over AA. The flop? A36. I would have busted if the early position raiser didn't shove.

    The second 33, I was on the button with around the same stack, and again cold called 1300 with 33. The original raiser was in middle-late position, and the BB rode along. Flop was KJ4 rainbow. Both checked to me, so I decided to fire a bet and hope to take it. Unfortunately, the BB (who had about 13k behind) flatted. Ugh. I was done unless I improved. Turn was an 8. He checked, I checked. River 3. He fired 4700. I pretended to think about it, and shoved. He then thought for a long time (at least a few minutes), and finally called off the rest of his stack, showing K8. I was up to 45k.

    That's where I ended up finishing. I briefly had 47k, but lost 2k on the final hand (400/800/100 blinds) when I attempted to blind steal from the button with Qc6c, ran into AK in the BB, and folded to his re-raise (he showed after I showed).

    1330 people entered, and 200 get paid.

    236 remain.

    I'm currently 84th in chips, and but average is 42,300, so I am average stacked.

    Here is my table:

    Patrick Mitchell Carlsbad, CA, US 14,500 Amazon / 519 / 1
    Ardit Kurshumi REVERE, MA, US 13,000 Amazon / 519 / 2
    Viliyan Petleshkov Bulgaria 53,300 Amazon / 519 / 3
    Todd Witteles LAS VEGAS, NV, US 45,000 Amazon / 519 / 4
    Kenneth Lowe Paso Robles, CA, US 26,500 Amazon / 519 / 5
    Leonard Tanase CA 35,400 Amazon / 519 / 6
    Jeffrey Dreyer Carlinville, IL, US 25,800 Amazon / 519 / 7
    Dorey Donald VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, US 9,000 Amazon / 519 / 8
    Conor Beresford York, England 25,300 Amazon / 519 / 9

    I don't know any of these people, aside from Conor Beresford, who was to my direct right on my last table. Conor took a brutal one for a huge pot, where he had 6d7d from the BB, flopped 5d4h2d, and got it all in on the flop against AdQd. Conor didn't catch up, and was crippled down to 4k. He managed to run it back up to 25k through a lot of all-ins, which was a combination of picking up hands and getting drunk. He was also fun to have at the table.

    Viliyan Petleshkov is Bulgarian, and has some results, so he should be pretty good. Ardit Kurshumi also has a good resume of cashes. It is possible the other 5 are recreational players.

    Fortunately, there are no big stacks at the table, and I have position on the only guy with more chips than me.

    Hopefully I have a big day and can finally run deep in one of these NL events.

    Young Asian-American guy at the table asks another player at showdown "Can you beat a 4?" with a 4 on the board, and turns over a single 4. Then he turns over the other 4 for a set. Somehow he can't understand it was a slowroll. #pfa37
