“Uh, this is the first update at the first break. I have 8375. I haven't played any significant pots other than, uh, one pot basically over a thousand chips, and basically I flopped a straight draw and turned a flush draw, but the stacks are too deep for me to really effectively jam at it and I lost a showdown to A-high, which really sucks.

“It is now the dinner break. I have 18,500 so that's some good news. I really got most of it all in one hand. There's a hand where I raised from two off the button with J8 of hearts. I got cold called on the button. I probably should have folded because he actually capped his cards before I acted. Anyways, he's the only caller and the flop comes gin for me - QT9 with 2 hearts. So I flopped the second nut straight with a flush draw. I bet at it, he raises substantially, I move all in for about his last 3600-4000, something like that. He thinks for a while and calls with K9, which is bottom pair and a 1 card gutshot. But that was pretty cool, he obviously missed and he busted and that's most of the story about how I have 18,000 in chips. So, ya know, I'm at the dinner break now, and that will be all.”

“I'm down to 2,500. One of the first few hands back, Randy Holland raises to 600. I cold call on the button with A7 of clubs. Heads up, the flop comes down AQ8 with two clubs. He bets 1,100, I raise to 3,000, he raises to 5,500, I jam, we both started the hand with 18,000. He goes in the tank, they call the clock on him, he calls with six seconds remaining, he has AK and I fail to improve. I like the way I played the hand, I don't like the way he played the hand, given that he did have the best hand because he's just trusting (can't make this part out) but whatever, that's that. So, Im down to 3,600, go all in a few times, you know, pay the blinds a few times. I get doubled up, I move in with AJ and get called by KQ and I survive that and I'm up to 7,000 and then I was all the way back to 9,000 but then the very last hand before the break, I open for 600 on the button with T8, the big blind calls, the flop comes 886 with two hearts. I have the ten of hearts. He checks, I bet 600 he calls. The turn is another heart, like the four of hearts. He bets 1,000 I call, the river is a jack, he bets 1,500 I call, and that's how Im at 2500.

“And that does it for my 2006 world series. I actually had an interesting decision on my last hand. I had exactly 2400. UTG makes it exactly 1200 and is called in four spots and is about to be in the big blind. I can make it a legal re-min to open action so that is what I decide to do and I make it 2400. Unfortunately, UTG does not cooperate and reraise, so everybody calls. So, I would have been, like you know, 14,000 if I won the hand, but I didn't. I had QT suited by the way, that's what I had. The flop came king high, the UTG bettor had AK anyways so it really wouldn't have mattered. So that's my world series, this is the last update, and I'll comment more in text when I get back to my computer.
