i finally made it to the Hotel room at 11.00pm Vegas time (7am UK ) so from my front door to my room took 24 hours ,so bloody tired but couldnt sleep,so ended up watching Terminator Salvation on the laptop.eventually got some sleep and up again at 8.30am Vegas time (Vegas is 8 hours behind UK).
met up with my friend Damatrix after i had regged for Monday`s game,, today`s $1500 NLHE was sold out,so glad i wasnt playing that one.
Damatrix looked cool in his Paradise get up and met a couple of his other Paradise players.they were already pre-regged for todays game.
so today,just gonna chill out in the hotel room til tonight and i may just have a game of poker in one the Hotels round here.

yep,good luck to Damatrix today,he was card dead pretty much all day and to carry over to Day 2 is a major feat.will wish him luck a bit later.
i am suffering badly with jet-lag,never had this before but i am hoping to get it all out my system today and get decent nights sleep before the game tomorrow.
meeting up with Joker161 later as he flew in yesterday,and a couple of other guys i know done the same so will catch up with them too.
i am playing in Amazon Blue Area on table 28 and in my most disliked seat of No.1 so i hope i can catch a better seat later on in the day as the numbers dwindle.
amazed that about 2500 players went out on day 1

missed Damatrix today as i thought he was starting at 12pm again but it was 2pm instead.
met up with Ian Frazer,hadnt seen him since WSOP2007 so no suprise he didnt recognise me at 1st,and got introduced to Neil Channing,nice guy.
met up with Eyesallin and Bagheira and it turned out that Gary had met the other guy,Joe, i was meeting at Virgin tourney a few months back.
we went looking for an afternoon game to play and ended up at Bally`s playing cash $1-$2, thankfully had a guy who had no idea on how to play poker and he donated nicely to the tune of me ending $220 up  .
so now a nice early night before the big game tomorrow.
Damtrix went out 30 before the cash when his AK got beat by AQ

This has got to be an early contender for "Name Dropping Thread Of The Year"   ;D

Hope your enjoying yourself Alan and good luck at the tables.  A WSOP bracelet for Brighton Poker Club would be nice.

...although Stan James have only sent 1 shirt for a 3 day event,so it could be a bit smelly on that Final Table  ;D


Full Tilt did this when I went, so I wore their shirt for day 1 and my own stuff after.

I don"t know how hot Stan James will be on you continuing to wear the merchandise but my thinking is that if they provide you with a shirt for 1 day, then you should wear their shirt for 1 day.

Good Luck in the tournament

hi guys,well it has been quite a good day for me i must,i stuck to my gameplan and it has worked well.
there were,i think,2816 registered players and 297 paid.
4500 starting chips and hourly blinds.
after about an hour and 3/4 with not having much of anything i get A/A .raise 3 x BB get 1 caller,flop is 9/4/4,i have raised it and caller re-raises, i push and he goes into think-tank,eventually calls and shows J/J  a nice double up.

after the 2nd break i am sitting with just over 9k,nothing of note happened during that session,just kept stealing the odd blinds to keep my stack up.

session 3.
10 minutes into session 3 i have doubled up again when my J/J beat 6/6.
bit further in i have A/K,fairly loose player shoves and i call.
he has 8/8 and i river the Ace
now up to 24k.
dinner break i am on 28k
again i am sitting with J/J,raise to 1800 and player shoves all-in. i instantly call and he shows K/10. a few more thousand for me .

end of level 8 and i am now on about 48k.
target is 50k for Day 2.
so far taken out 5 players.
2nd hand into level 9 i have J/J again,guy sitting to my left has gone all-in and i call,he shows A/9 and my Jacks hold up yet again.
had A/A again but raised 3x BB and all fold.
i did hit at one time 75k but tiredness set in near the end and i made a play with K/Q against 3/3,i hit my Queen but he hit his 3,thought it time the variance came in.
and then last hand guys pushed short stacked on my BB,again i have K/Q and he has A/J,flop comes down rag/Q/J then turn shows the Ace.

so i have made day 2 and i have just over 53k,so happy enough.

Good or Bad table draw for Alan, you decide.

Comfortably chip daddy on his table, but all of them can hurt his stack.  Any thought ?

Seat 1: Kenneth Terrell - 35100
Seat 2: John Spagnuolo - 36300
Seat 3: Klaus Schwarz - 17000
Seat 4: Michael Bernstein - 14000
Seat 5: Jason Reed - 17400
Seat 6: Alan Steer - 53400
Seat 7: Randy McKay - 20300
Seat 8: John Hom - 16600
Seat 9: John Lee - 17100
