I'm starting the final table of the WSOPE main event tomorrow, a little below par but all things considered, I'm happy. I started yesterday with 710k and 36 players left; I finished the day with 674k and 9 players left, with average around a million. Blinds are 10k-20k so I am not quite on life support and do have a bit of room to maneuver but wow--what a tough final table. Jason Mercier has been absolutely dominating and has a pretty big chip lead, Daniel Negreanu is short but obviously always dangerous and frankly, I wouldn't be thrilled to see any of the remaining players at a cash game table. Yesterday was a very frustrating day--pretty much all of my hands played themselves and I didn't have any particularly interesting spots. I folded a lot, which, as most of you guys know, is pretty rare for me and makes me sad. But today is a new day and being out there under the hot lights with ESPN around is a far cry from playing at home in my pajamas. I'm certainly not saying I prefer it, but it is a fun and exciting change of pace. Time to shower and get going!
