Played craps and won back my $500 I blew on poker lessons in the WSOP satellites yesterday. I played in the 11:00 AM tournament at Aladdin. Didn’t win a single hand and was knocked out early. I did manage to win $200 in the NL ring game there.
Tommy, a friend of mine from V-Vegas won a seat into a $1500 WSOP event on Full Tilt Poker and chose to play in the Pot Limit Hold ‘Em Event #3 on Sunday since today’s event is full. We decided to meet at the new Wynn casino. Tommy was playing in a $2-$5 NL ring game and I sweated him for a while.
Daniel Negreanu is the Poker Ambassador for the Wynn casino and was playing his heads up match with Barry Greenstein for $500,000. Barry had a 2-1 chip lead when I went to play craps for a couple hours, when I returned Daniel had made a comeback and had ¾ of the chips in front of him. They each had double high stacks of $1000 and $5000 chips and smaller stacks of $25,000 chips. I’m watching them sling these things around and scoop these monster pots….I’m thinking, they’re betting my house. They were playing with $1000 chips like I would play with $1 chips. It was amazing.
I invited Daniel to our blogger tournament tomorrow…..hope he can stop by.
