I entered the DADI Invitational 5 last night with a chance to win a $1500 seat to the WSOP. It was a who’s who of blogger poker and quite a challange to make a deep run. I ended up finishing at just over 50% which stinks because the top 50% get POY points. I think I played pretty solid- didn’t get into too much trouble. My busting hand (no bad beat here) was a re-raise all-in with TPTK (A-10) and a backdoor flush draw that was called by pocket jacks. I was at under 20 BB and with a pretty big field remaining you just have to push.
It was a good event with very solid poker- and enough donkey play- to make it interesting. I did end up busting TripJax so I get me a freeroll HU match via a bounty. I’ll just need to find a time when the two of us can duel.
I did win a SnG before the DADI event. I think I am going to spend some time concentrating on SnGs and these smaller MTT (like WWdN and DADI) events. The cash game has not been happy to me of late.
