WSOPE £10,000 Main Event Kicks Off

Saturday, 27 September 2008

My day began badly – there are two tournaments being covered today and I thought I’d drawn the longer of the two straws as the other is a piddly little £150 buy-in. As it turns out I received a phone call saying that Brian Townsend and a load of CardRunners instructors were at the smaller buy-in.

I’m a child of the internet generation and this is reflected in my poker playing. Therefore these guys are my real heroes; however I’d say I’ve still done alright. Among the list of poker Gods lined up to compete in this event are Andys Bloch and Black, Joe Beevers, Eli Elezra, Erik Seidel, Mike Matusow, Phil Hellmuth… The list goes on.

Making an unfortunate early exit were Howard Lederer and David Benyamine, although fortunately I don’t have anything for them to sign anyway. The former was eliminated by Chris ‘moorman1’ Moorman after Lederer reraised Moorman’s open. Moorman held 66, called and flopped a set to stack Lederer’s AA after they got it all in on the flop. Always typical to arrive and hear of an Aces-Cracked situation within ten minutes. As they say, lol donkaments.
