WSPL Goes to Vegas Episode 03/10

This is one of those weeks when I feel like PokerStars was just messing with me.  I got absolutely brutally awful cards all night.  And had I played them I think I would have flopped two pair, or at least made two pair by the turn 87% of the time.

Jasons K and S were no shows again.  I think K has given up, and S is in the process of moving across country.   I hovered around the starting stack size most of the game.  for some reason I was able to see the flop on my BB for free almost every orbit.  So I was able to hang around.  Ultimately when we were four handed I tried to bluff Mark off a pot and he made a great call with bottom pair.  That left me pretty short stacked and then I tried to get cute by reraising all-in with bottom pair, hoping Noah was just trying to steal my blind.  He had top pair and knocked me out.  It was probably an ill-advised move at that point, but I was banking on him bluffing and I was wrong.

In the grand scheme of things is probably doesn't matter as Mark and Jason M were still in it, and they don't need to beat me at this point. They just need to stick around for a while to accumulate enough points to prevent me from catching them.  I'll have to do the math later, but I think I'm mathematically eliminated at this point,

This weeks results are:

  1. Noah
  2. Jason M
  3. Mark
  4. Me
  5. Archie
  6. Greg
  7. Aaron
  8. Shane
  9. Jason K (DNP)
  10. Jason S (DNP)
The overall standings are:

  1. Jason M (83/82)
  2. Mark (80 /73)
  3. Aaron (63/59)
  4. Shane (53/51)
  5. Greg (51/51)
  6. Noah (52/50)
  7. Me (51/49)
  8. Jason S (48/48)
  9. Archie (48/46)
  10. Jason K(19/19)
