WCOOP Update

I played two more WCOOP events last week. The first, Sunday's $215 No Limit Hold'em event, just wasn't in the cards for me. I did well for a few hours but then got it all in with K10 on a K 10 3 board. He showed pocket 3s and I didn't catch any miracles. No regrets, the pot was too big to fold with our stack sizes. That's just one of those situations where I'm always going to want to get it in with a hand that strong, and if I'm beat there's nothing I can do about it.

The second event was different story. On Monday I played the 4-Max No Limit Hold'em tournament. I've played shorthanded before, but 4-max is nuts. It was a really intense challenge for me and it was a lot of fun, but I busted from that one due to my own mistakes. The format required me to play a lot of hands and the result was that I had more chances to make mistakes. I had all the 'run good' I needed, coming back from the brink of elimination several times, but I didn't do a good job of holding on to chips. I wound up busting close to the money with kings.


I really want to take down a big score in this series. I've played four so far and made the money in one, but nothing like what I'm looking for. I think I have what it takes against these fields, I just need a few things to go right and to play a solid game. I won a seat for tomorrow's $215 NL Hold'em event. Let's see if I can make it this one.
