Sooo, now that the Series is over I'm obviously sick (happened last year during ME run as well) and looking back on the summer that was. I played in $60,500 in buy ins over 17 tournaments, going 4 for 17 with no particularly deep runs (I got to the final 16 in the Mix Max where my equity was probably ~$125k but ran into a serious cooler and then lost AQ to A2 AIPF for my last 50 bigs) but also no min cashes. I picked the wrong tournaments to cash in this year (where I crushed it last year, cashing the 10k 6m and the Main) but still cashed for ~$44k. With pieces of other random people (a lot of pieces of guys in 1ks and shit that just straight bricked, wtf 1ks are easy) I lost some and won some, but still have a little sweat out in the Octo-Nine (that is really the name jesus christ) and am lucky enough to trick Chewy into swapping with me (wins everything in case you didn't notice).
Our house had a particularly good summer, with about a half dozen final tables, another half dozen final table bubbles, and, sadly, zero bracelets (I believe we were best at third and fifth). I would consider it a pretty successful summer all things considered. I managed to make a lot of day twos and even though many of them ended in disappointment and regret, there is value in getting to further stages in tournaments, I will just have to do a better job of realizing my equity in the future of course.
With a little insomnia I figured I'd put this out there, and hopefully will have a better chance to actually think about what I'm going to do next and talk about more stuff next blog. In the meantime, Chewy was on a podcast called Occupy Poker
recently, and while I usually don't listen to podcasts I happen to listen to the first 2/3 or so of this one. It's really more about conspiracy theories than poker, but it's a good listen.
