I had surgery last week (hernia) so I've been recuperating at my place and hadn't had a chance to play in any wsop events yet. I was really psyched to play in the 1k rebuy this year, as in the past its gone on during the weekends and given my lack of saturday play, I've never been able to get in on what seems like a tourney I'd like. Unfortuantely, I woke up the morning of the tournament w/ too much pain to legitametly consider playing the event, oh well, maybe next time.
Today, I was finally feeling upto heading down to the Rio, so I decided to play the 2k buyin. I didn't last a level, getting in aj dd on a q108 ccd board against k5 cc, turn was a 5, so gg me. At least it ended early. I'm really excited to be playing live tournaments (I can't say I feel the same way about online tournies, but I'm sure I'll get back into it, nothing like a few scores to change that feeling.)
McCain vs Obama- please spare me, at best I'll vote for third party, although i'm not really sure it's worth the little effort required to do so.
I played in the sattelite room today, which Cardrunners sponsors. They put a card on each table entitling all players to a 24 hour free pass , I hope many people choose not to take them up on the offer. It's amazing how far the online poker world has come....
I can only dream about what it would be w/o government intervention, just thinking about it makes me really upset, but what can I/we do.
