    I got on a nice run at a WSOP Circuit tourney last weekend at Harrah's Cherokee in NC. There were a total of 2,447 players and I finished in 12th place. What a blast. I tightened up too much as final table approached. If I had played my pocket deuces from early position I would have won a monster pot with quads. Buy in was $365 and cashed for about $9,700. 1st was $108,000. Near miss for sure but fun regardless.

    I'll add a couple pics via Tapatalk.

    Close to my high point with 18 left. Orange is 1k, grey is 5k and pink is 25k.

    I think I'm going back up this weekend to play in a deep stack tourney. I would love to play the main event but I can't get off work Monday.

    Played in the deep stack at Cherokee. 286 players, 30 get paid. We are at 31 players and I get AA under the gun. There are roughly 10 stacks smaller than mine and I announce "I have the one hand I can't lay down in this spot, I'm all in". Guy on the button calls my all in with 3/4 of his stack and flips KK. K on the flop and I'm out on the bubble. Did he not hear me? No clue but if a safe player makes that statement on the bubble I'll give them the benefit of the doubt unless I have a monstrous stack. No way I put myself in danger of bubbling when my KK is most likely behind. Oh well, if you go out go out in style right?

    I'm heading to Vegas labor day weekend to play in the main event at Planet Hollywood in the WSOP circuit event. I'm in the top 100 in player of the year points right now and would like some clarity as to weather I need to continue to focus on these events.

    So frustrating, but I guess in the long run you want awful calls like that.

    I'm always surprised how many times people at the table make some blindingly obvious play that is just like turning your hand over, but someone still makes a "I don't believe you" kind of call.
