Slowing Down

My last qualifer wasn't a success as my QQ were cracked by a set of 7's quite early. Well, Daniel Negreanu missed a final table because his aces were cracked by a set of 7's from Dutch Boyd - so I shouldn't complain about my mini bad beat ;-))

This was my last online tournament before our trip. I'm just slowing down a little, getting everything arranged and having a good time.

That includes that I follow the WSOP action closely on cardplayer.com. I really love their coverage. It feels like you're almost there. About the above mentioned tournament with Boyd and Negreanu. This was the $2,500 NL Short-Handed. Dutch Boyd finally won the tournament defeating WSOP 2005 winner Joseph Hachem. I really wished Hachem his second bracelet, but nevertheless this 2nd place shows that he isn't a fluke. He was truly a great ambassador for poker during the last year and I'm sure he will continue to be a big name in the future.
During that event something very odd happend - something that shouldn't happen in a professional tournament: Whose chips are they, anyway!

Regarding my plans to play event #17 - this doesn't look good at all. Seems they have already over 500 people. I assume it will be sold out and I might be late even if I win enough satellite tokens for a buy in. So I'm mentaly prepared to take a shot on the $2,000 Pot-Limit one day later. So I have to win two more tokens :-((
