    Finished with a big stack Day 1 in the WSOP Big Fofty

    Finished with 682k. Play again on Monday at 10am.

    Played in a fucking warehouse (not kidding) which was hot and stuffy and awful.

    Radio tomorrow. I'll talk about a ton of shit from today.

    I will likely be around 75th out of 24,000 or so Day 1 entrants when all the Day 1s are done.

    Pray that you stay in that hothouse #warehouse. This heat/discomfort is your secret weapon. Keep up the results, Druff!

    That scarf wearing punk jacosta also played in my flight (I didn't see him, but I saw his updates), and he didn't make it through the day.

    Keep in mind that he has tried to claim in the past that I am a fish in these NL events.

    On a similar note one of the few young guys at the table made a snide comment to me about my bracelet.

    I always wear my bracelet to events full of recs, because it's an advantage. People see it and get intimidated by the fact that I'm a bracelet winner, so they don't play as well against me. Obviously this doesn't work at $10k events where tons of people have bracelets.

    Anyway, the day didn't start off great for me. First, I lost my tournament ticket and spent 30 minutes in the room looking for it, before finally giving up and begging them not to make me stand in the 5 hour line. They actually handled it well and got me seated quickly. But I did miss like the first 45 minutes, though my stack didn't blind off.

    Then I started off losing the first few hands, and my 50k starting stack was 28k.

    Then I was SUPER card dead for 2 full levels. I played the first 3 hands, won them, and then folded every single one for the entire rest of those two levels. Just about every hand I was dealt was in the bottom 1/3 of hands, and the few barely above that were things like K6o in early position. I wasn't even getting anything of J9o quality.

    Well, near the end of that fold fest, the young guy piped up, "That bracelet you have, let me guess that's not in No Limit?"

    Clearly he was making a snide comment because I just folded and folded, and it appeared there was no way a super tight old guy like me could have won a NL bracelet.

    I responded in a sarcastic tone of voice, "Why do you think that? Because I've been folding every hand for 2 hours?"

    The table laughed.

    He said, "Uh, no, umm... that's not it... uhh... but it's not in NL, is it?"

    So I admitted it was in limit holdem, but again reiterated that I've been super card dead.

    I don't like having a super tight image at the table, because then I get no action when I do hit hands. I also don't like having a loose image, because people play back at me and I can't run them off hands. I like having an image in between, which is why I try to make a big deal about being "card dead" when a period like that goes by.

    Anyway, it turned out this mouthy guy was a fish himself. There was a hand in which I wasn't involved, which went three ways, where someone opened early, another person 3 bet, he 4 bet out of the blind, then the original opener went all-in, and the next person folded. He tanked a long time. I assumed he had AK or QQ and didn't know what to do. Finally he called. He had 55!!! LOL!!! What did the other person have? KK, and that person doubled off him, as you'd expect. This dude was now short stacked, and shot off the rest in donkish fashion.

    After that hand, I felt like saying, "I see the reason you don't have a no limit bracelet either", but I decided to let him suffer in silence.

    By far the biggest fail at the Big Fofty was chip management. At one point we had two different color 5k chips, 2 different color 25k, and the maroon 25k were almost identical in color to the 500. How do you run out of same color chips?

    Then the colored up our table twice leaving damn near no chips on the table. The table leader had 350k and came back to find 4 chips. The level was 2000/3000 I believe so he obviously needed change. But no one else could hardly break it. Twice we had to do odd two person chip exchange to play the hand (guy breaks a 50k essentially giving up his stack for one chip. Then the 50k person has to use that to chop a 25k chip). Just stupid

    And we had two atrocious dealers. One had damn near zero clue how to deal. It was bad.
    It's hilarious that we as a society think everyone can be a dr, a lawyer, an engineer. Some people are just fucking stupid. Why can't we just accept that?

    Ask Druff what happened last time we played HU.
