first place at the hustler weekly

incredibly long day yesterday. it started with a video shoot for the band im in. i’m sure i will blog about breaking arrows soon but suffice to say it’s got some good guys and is sort of a super group. pictured below are daita ito and brendan buckley. the video was more or less inspired by U2′s streets have no name – coincidentally also shot in downtown la. breaking arrowsi finally got home a little after 7 when courtenay called to tell me to meet him at hustler cos there was a 5k guarantee with a small field. turns out he was right about the small field but it was only 3k. so i entered late and ultimately won the thing. it was pretty satisfying. my big hands pre flop were 77, 66, 22. 7′s folded on the flop, 6′s before the flop and my 2′s turned into a set on the turn that i did end up getting some value for. other than that i river’d 2 pair only to not paid off and on the last hand i rivered a flush but i already had the hand won by virtue of high card vs bluff. given that i didnt run amazing it was even more thirst quenching. my meta game and overall strategic game play was what i thought really shined. after playing the wsop tournaments there is an even more relaxed and patient state of mind that helps with a fluid game. you can’t really see it from the picture below but when we started heads up play i was out chipped 3 to 1. the guy that finished second (don) was super cool – it’s always nice to play with nice people like that. huster casino
