Both Joe and Danny got through day 1B - Danny with 50,675 and Joe with 49,750. Joe was apparently down to 7k within the first hour after getting his aces cracked so a real good effort to grind back from there. 

Looks like Joker Joe also had a good day so still plenty of railing from my laptop screen to look forward to.

Pleased to report that Joe and Danny both made it through day 2 of the main event. Joe is sitting on 123,700 and Dannys got 83,000. It was Dannys turn to have a topsy turvy day as he was under 20k at one point.

Really delighted for them, they put the hours in and it would be great to see their efforts rewarded with a cash. They have a day off tonight as it"s day 2C, then every remaining player comes back tomorrow. still a long way to go but getting closer to that elusive cash.

Come on lads, you can do it!!!!!

Well I woke this morning to find that joe busted but danny made it to day 4. Yes!!!!!

His text said that he has 341k going back to blinds of 2.5k and 5k with around 20 to bust before the money. Im pleased im not there i"m a bundle of nerves and just want the bubble to burst as quickly as possible. I know how much this means to him and he"s so close to a big payday. what a long slog this event is, I feel for the 20 who will fall just short.

Come on danny, run good.

Nice one Ger. Of course it was you who was there for his first weekend of live poker on his 18th birthday at DTD so it"s fair to say he learnt it all from you.......... he loves a Corona NFL now!!!

The bubble has burst and Danny made the money. I"m officially the proudest uncle in the world Danny deserves this so much and there is $19k locked up. Whatever happens from here is a bonus, but come on Dan keep going.

Joe if you can give him a big hug and tell him it"s from Uncle Glenn   ;D ;D ;D ;D

What an effort! Danny survived day 4 and is going back for day 5 as one of the short stacks with around 180k after losing a couple of big pots late on. Looks like there are around 240 players left.

To get this far in the main event is fantastic and if he gets his double up, who knows........

At least he"s saved this thread from epic failure!!

gogogo Danny
