I just saw Tom McEvoy play a hand , the first since dinner . He had aces . He was called by pocket
jacks . Aces are good this time .
Tom McEvoy 38k
14 Allie Prescott TN $4475
I was talking to Michael Gracz . He is closing in on John Phan for CP Player of the year . I don't know
John well but his friends are my friends ( Maria , Liz + Quinn ) . Michael is in better form right now but
with John it could all turnaround in one tournament .

There is an older Asian guy at Liz Lieus table who is the chip leader . I tapped Liz on the head to ask if
she knew his name . I learned something . Never tap an Asian on the head . It is thought to bring bad
luck . I hope Liz makes the final table but she is pretty short stacked .

We are back . I had a nice dinner with a friend . The game is very slow at the moment as we did not make it into the money before the break .
Marc Aubin didn't make it but he still went to the buffet .He has more time to enjoy it .

Ricard Tatalovich out . He is usually one of the best at playing a short stack into the money .
Thursday, 13th of October 2005 08:53 PM
Tom McEvoy is one of the short stacks also .
Thursday, 13th of October 2005 08:39 PM

itself . 32 left 27 places paid .

Yesterday I didn't want to be late as I had friends at the final table but I wanted to pick up some
groceries as I dont have a day off until Monday and yes I don't have a girlfriend to help out (offers to
Amy@pokerpages.com ) . I went to a store with self checkout . I bought and paid for my groceries
picked up my change and left the store without the groceries .
Chip leader Mike Carson won a bracelet at the Millenium WSOP in PLHE .
Emmanuel Negoita works in Best Buy in Chicago . Hopefully all his co workers will be locked
into pokerpages.com when demonstrating computers today .
Scott Epstein finished 4th in the WSOP last year won by Scott Fischman with Joe Awada second .
Alan Smurfit has a couple of wins, in London , this year . He seems a solid player . Money isn't a
factor for Mr Smurfit , he likes the challenge . In the Palm Beach Casino victory he beat one of my
Blackpool buddies Steve Walmsley , who only reads my blog if it contains a photo of a pretty girl .
Thanks for reading everyday Steve .
