Heading to Vegas

Hey many of you know I am heading to Vegas to play in the Main Event of the WSOP in a few days. I have been swimming everyday and eating nothing but vegetables and fruit to try to get my mind right. I lost 5 -6 lbs since I was announced as the 6th runner. For those that do not know what I am talking about here...

Will "Poker Monkey" Souther has an investment group that I have been apart of for the last 3-4 years and he collects investment shares at $200 a piece and for every 50 shares sold...he send a player to the Main Event at a 35-65% stake with the investment group getting the big swig. I was confident (If you read my previous blog) that this year he was going to easily sell out the shares ...the closer we got to the Main Event. Once they had sold out 5 players/250 shares...Monk shot me a text while I was sitting in the $500 Coushatta event telling me that they were going for 6 players this year...and that I would be #6 if he could sell it out...another 50 shares. He also announced it on Facebook so I was getting blown up from all my friends letting me know in case I hadn't seen it.

WOW!!!!...I was taken aback and pretty pumped!!

Well...he sold out that last runner/50 shares in ...I was within 24 hours...I know it was fairly fast. I had thanked Monk early in the week once the last 2 of the original 5 were announced thanking him for considering me. I was still a little "blown away" that I was going and that last 50 shares were sold so quick...Thank you to all that recruited...spoke highly of me...invested in take a page from Wild Bill..."ALRIGHT...ALRIGHT...ALRIGHT"

Since I was announce, I have  been burning up the videos on Card Runner all week and will be hitting "Float the Turn" also tonight. I also went back to my 2 favorite books...Johnathan Little Vol 1 and 2.

Looking forward to seeing all the other players when we get there. Obviously Wild Bill and I have dissected more hands between the 2 of us than any other player alive in the past 10-15 years. Looking forward to meeting Stephen, Christian and Dr Laura...and looking forward to seeing Robert again. Robert and I have alot of history with him living on the Gulf Coast for awhile a few years ago. We have played against each other many times and I think we both have a solid respect for each others game. In that Circuit Event where I won the Casino Championship at the IP in 2011...we were at a Final Table together.

Well...I am Pretty pumped...flying out this week...I am planning on playing Day 2 which will be twitter feed is @gcpgened.
