    To borrow an overused tweet phrase from 2011, I'm "peacefully grinding" and sit with 94k. 28 min left. #pfa73

    Finished with 93500, which I have to imagine is close to average chips from Day 1B of the Main. Few big decisions, not much drama. Didn't win or lose any big pots. That was also about my high in chips.

    We return Saturday at 11am, hopefully no earthquake that day.

    Day 1 of the Main Event (1B) for me was mostly uneventful.

    Started off with what appeared to be a GREAT table full of recs, but couldn't capitalize it, as I kept losing hands, incuding a QQ versus AA which I bailed out on the turn. The other problem was that they were raising unusually big preflop, so every hand got way too expensive.

    The open seats ended up being filled by mostly good players, but I slowly built my stack back up.

    No big hands really, though I did have quads and somewhat get paid. I was never close to all in, other than putting short stacks all in.

    One player no-showed, but he gets a refund, so it's not as bad as you think.

    Aaron Mermelstein, who I just talked about on the last radio show, showed up a few hours in to my direct right. He ended up with just 19k, and interestingly folded to preserve his last 12k or so after investing 5k and getting 4-bet by me all-in. (I had KK in the hand, and he later told me had had AK.)

    I finished with 93500, near my high, from a starting stack of 60k.

    Blinds on Day 2, which starts in 8 hours, will be 400/800/800, meaning I'm still well over 100 bigs.

    It looks like about 8200-something players entered so far, but people can also enter on Day 2, so those numbers aren't final.

    From Day 1A and 1B, 3248 entered (combined), and 2383 survived (73.36%).

    This puts average stack at around 81800, meaning I'm a little bit above.

    However, I'm way above on the list -- 830th out of 2383, and even average chips would be 1033rd.

    All pretty meaningless right now. Cashing won't happen, most likely, until early Day 4, which will be July 9.

    Here is the chip count list for Days 1A/1B of remaining players: http://www.wsop.com/pdfs/reports/172...S-BY-CHIPS.pdf

    Here's the seating list: http://www.wsop.com/pdfs/reports/172...TS-BY-SEAT.pdf

    I will not play with Day 1C people unless I make Day 3.

    Kevin Killeen DUBLIN, IE 93,200 Amazon / 412 / 1
    Peter Rho LAS VEGAS, NV, US 88,200 Amazon / 412 / 2
    Todd Witteles LAS VEGAS, NV, US 93,500 Amazon / 412 / 3
    Brian Kim WALNUT, CA, US 98,000 Amazon / 412 / 4
    Gary Patanjo EAST PATCHOGUE, NY, US 56,500 Amazon / 412 / 5
    Jerod Smith TROY, IL, US 104,700 Amazon / 412 / 6
    Eric Gong BAYSIDE, NY, US 141,200 Amazon / 412 / 7
    Bassem Masri WHITEHALL, PA, US 63,100 Amazon / 412 / 8
    Lucas Picking NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ, US 12,000 Amazon / 412 / 9

    Table draw is average overall, given the rec-heavy field.

    Brian Kim is a decent LA player, Peter Rho has over a million in lifetime cashes and is solid (I've played with him before), Kevin Killeen is a good Euro player with a million in cashes, and all of them are roughly euqal to me in chips. (Fortunately I have position on Kevin and Peter.)

    Jerod Smith has some results but mostly at smaller events, so he might not be that aggressive here.

    Gary Patanjo appears to be a rec. Erc Gong, the table chip leader, appears to be a rec.

    Bassem Masri also appears to be a rec, but interestingly the most google results for him come up regarding his November 2018 death! Apparently a Bassem Masri was a somewhat known Ferguson protester, and was "found unresponsive on a bus" in November. This Bassem Masri is unknown.

    Lucas Picking is an east coast player with some results, but he has a tiny stack and will need to get lucky to stay around very long.

    Flopped an absolute monster but had keep firing big because a flush draw was out there. Guy folded top pair on turn. Oops! I want my bet back. Up to 96k #pfa73

    Aces dealt for the second time in first 30 min!! First time little action, this time bad board of J967 with two hearts against a flatter. Check/called turn, check/check on black 9 river. Win, up to 112k #pfa73

    Play is much tougher overall on this table compared to Thursday. I've managed to get to 121k. Funny hand just went not involving me, all in on 345 flop, both turned over KK. #pfa73

    Navigated a scary situation as my Q8cc raise was flatted by the button preflop, flop Q62 two hearts, I bet, he calls. Turn Qd, I checked, he bet 7k, I called. River Tc. He fired 18k. Not thrilled here but had to call. He had 94hh & I win. Up to 143k #pfa73

    It looks like he flatted with 94hh in an attempt to stop me from stealing the BB, which was dead because the player had left for the break early, and other players were visibly ready to jump up and leave for this final hand before break. Fortunate for me! #pfa73

    Forced to take a stupid additional break due to ESPN matters. Still waiting for poker players to get paid for appearing (yeah right!)

    Productive first 3 hours (mainly the first 2), sitting at 149k #pfa73

    Took down a pot with AQo on a AJ353 board, then made a laydown pre which might surprise you (can't say out here what I had). Up to 179k #pfa73

    Tough blind vs blind situation versus Peter Rho to my right. He 4-bet pre from SB to my BB when I had JJ. I put him in on low flop after smallish bet, he thought, almost folded, called with QQ. Ugh! J turn!!! Won 2 small ones after, up to 287k. #pfa73

    In case you're wondering, he came into the hand with like 85k, and 4 bet was to 25k, so it was too hard to let go of JJ on that flop, blind vs blind. Tough one to play given his stack. #pfa73

    Put a guy all in on a board of QT4K two diamonds. I did not have AJ! He said, "That's a good bet!", and folded his cards to preserve his 130k stack. I think he had a flush draw! Up to almost 310k #pfa73

    7s8s in BB. Flop JT9 two hearts. I check raise all-in. He looks unhappy and calls for his 44k remaining. Turns over JJ. I have a feeling I'm going to lose it. Sure enough, T on turn and my goose is cooked. Down to 252k, in my first bad beat of today. #pfa73

    A little bit bruised from that 115k pot where I got turned after putting opponent all in on flop, but I did put a 2-outer on someone in a worse spot earlier. Going to dinner with exactly 260k, only down 27k from last break. #pfa73

    For some great entertainment, follow @slayAbides as he "showers" people bust-tweeting from the Main. I look forward to my "showering" when my inevitable time eventually comes! #pfa73

    AJ vs AQ on A792K board. I checked back river, he check/called flop and turn. In total 19.5k was lost, which isn't bad considering blinds are 1k/2k/2k. But I sit at 241k now. #pfa73

    Flopped bottom set from SB on draw heavy board versus button. Had to fast play it. Got action on flop but not past that. I now have 275k, 55 min left today #pfa73
