    Back from break- on the big blind, short stack shoves for approx 3500. Big stack just calls. I look down at two kings and reshove. Big stack calls. My KK vs KQ(big stack) and QJ (short stack). Board runs out A-2-3-5-5. At 28k now.

    And I’m out. Short stacked shoved A-6 spades. Opponents had JJ and didn’t improve.

    Was disappointed to not bag at the end of the day, so went back to the Mirage and played around a bit. Sampled one of the hard candy's from the Shoppe, and went to bed around midnight.

    Today is a new day, full of possibilities. And my wife helped put things in perspective: I still outlasted ~5,500 other players. Not sure of the plan quite yet, going to check out the tournament schedule around town. Ford will be arriving later on today as well.

    Unlucky in the tournament, and nice hit on the VP.

    Good luck if you play anything today, mate.
