Hey, I haven't updated in 2 months but I just wanted to give some info as to what I've been up to. I've been playing most Sundays and overall doing great. I played EPT Madrid which was my first real poker trip in a while(have played a few tournies here and there, but this was the first trip which involved basically playing a tournament every day). I lost money overall on the trip but I felt great about how I played throughout. I played 6 tournies and nut-bubbled the 5k event and got 5th in the 10k turbo for 30k euros. I roomed with luckychewy which was awesome- I feel as if certain aspects of my game have gotten lazy and talking to him gave me a lot of ideas as to what I should be working on. I think there are certain spots where I try too hard to stay out of tough spots and other situations where I'm pretty much asking to get put in tough spots and think I need to balance that out a little bit and be more consistent.
I remember last year thinking I wasn't excited for WSOP at all and right now its the complete opposite- I really want to get down to vegas, see everyone and hopefully win a bunch of money. I still get a ton of coaching requests whcih I typically turn down or people turn me down once we discuss pricing but now I do coaching through https://www.expertinsight.com/users/expert_profile/4dcab105-7ff8-4f6a-9e9b-7737adcb5c22
Also, my friend Will Ma who I've talked more poker with than anyone else started making videos here. He plays pretty much the same as me hes just smarter, more articulate and plays more based on the assumptions of being an unknown than based on the assumptions that most people know who you are, so you should check them out. His first video is here: http://www.cardrunners.com/poker-videos/replayer-mtt-will-ma/
Regarding my WSOP plans I'll be living at LuckyChewy's house with KingDan, Bond18, Sirwatts and likely a few other guys. I'll be arriving the morning of June 2nd and staying in Vegas until June 30th or so and then returning for my friend Aaron's wedding. July 4th I'll be returning back to Vegas and staying for another week or two depending on how I do in the WSOP main.
Hopefully during the series mement_mori and I get a chance to do some more videos together, and since I can't play online I plan on making videos of some of the tournaments I've done well in during my downtime. I have no idea what the interest levels would be, but after familiarizing myself with how the tournies play at the WSOP I might try making some more videos that are specific to live play.
Would people be interested in seeing a video series about playing the smaller buying/larger field NLHE events at the WSOP? At the moment I have much more experience with how European tournies play but after playing 25-35 tournies this summer I'm sure I'll be somewhat of an expert. Any feedback or requests are appreciated.
