WSOP bracelet winner Jason Young's poker blog
It is unfortunate that I lost a 150k pot with 15 minutes left in the day, but all in all I couldn't have possibly played any better on day 2.
I started with 40k and progressively grinded my stack upwards. First to 50k, then 60k... eventually 82k at dinner. My table broke after dinner and I ended up at an interesting table where everyone seemed to be letting some internet kid run them over, literally raising every single hand. I was sitting on 93k when this hand came up... Kid that raises every hand makes it 3k. He was flatted and the one foreign guy that seemed to be fed up with these antics made it 16,500 to go. Now this is not general practice for me, but FCK it I had enough... I shipped it for 93k. I told my friends on the rail I would only do that with one hand, of course (AA). Well, it was 9-10 of spades. Ship it...125k
With about 30 minutes left in the day the kid who raised every hand must have had a cramp and folded, so the kid directly to my right raised. I 3-bet A-10 spades to 9k and he called. Flop was 10-7-3 rainbow he checked, I bet, he called, turn was another 10 and put a 2nd heart on the board. He lead into me for 15k. I called and the river was a K of hearts, where he fired 35k. I had not been sitting at the table for that long and really didn't have proper reads on anyone, because the one guy was pushing all of the action. I deliberated and then called. He showed me AJ of hearts. I was disgusted with the whole situation. I was hell-bent on bagging 100k+ and I had it and I gave it away. It was the only mistake I made all day and it cost me a whole days worth of work. I bagged just about 60k going into the 600-1200 level. 50 BB's is still fine, and I am in my comfort zone having to fight my ass off. I think there will probably be around 1,600 players going into day 3 with 650 getting paid. Things are getting FUN now, so I cant wait to tell you about day 3 and the push towards getting into the money.
