Preparing for the WSOP

Preparation for the WSOP is running well. After falling short with the preliminary seat but getting more than $400 for second place a few days ago I now made another good result in the Pacific $10,000 guaranteed.

The tournament started with 623 players and I was able to build a nice stack quite fast. Unfortunatly the cards went cold quite soon and I barely made it into the money (almost short-stacked). After the bubble burst it went better again and I received several good hands in a row and was able to bust some smaller stacks. I was chipleader for some time but again the cards went ice cold. Being in the money with lot's of really short stacks around I decided not to gamble (with bad cards) and fell in hibernation ;-)

Unfortunately the cold deck stayed cold even after we reached the final table. Fortunately the big stacks made a good job and busted several people. I stole some blinds and took down some smaller pots but finally I was pot committed with 22. The chipleader called and made his straight with a 56o. Out on 6th place with $400 added to the bankroll.

Originally I had planned to play tonights qualification for a preliminary seat on UltimateBet once again (I missed my wake-up call the night before and therefore missed the tournament). But after 4 hours of great poker I decided to call it a night.
