Scariest thing of the entire WSOP

LAS VEGAS–There’s a PartyPoker player still alive in the main event that we are following on PokerBlog. His name is Richard Wyrick — a very nice fellow I met on the PartyPoker Million. Anyhow, he is getting pretty short-stacked, and I just got off the phone with him. I was kinda tickled when he made it into the money after we had a strategy discussion the night before. I felt I had something to do with his success, but I wasn’t going to say anything, because deep down inside, I know that I sometimes think every woman wants me, too … so who knows what he really thought of my drivel.

(My advice there was a page stolen from Subway Jon as he coached La Sengphet through the bubble of the Ladies event.)

Anyhow, as I was saying, I just got off the phone with Richard. Apparently I am his coach. So I just told him that he has to be looking to push all-in. (His M is equal to about 6 right now.) Look to attack medium stacks, I said. In general, play super tight, but look for situations where your cards don’t matter … and if you’re forced to move all-in with a weak hand, you’re better off playing 5-7o than K-10s.

So with Wyrick calling me for advice, he is obviously doomed. But if he makes the final table, then I am a genius. And then, of course, all the girls will really want me.

ALT HED: Go Big Dick!

UPDATE: I just checked on my bandwagon protege … He looked at me and motioned with his fingers that he had 450,000 left in chips. Blinds are at 10k/20k +3k, and he’s UTG. Ever the coach, I nodded, tapped my index finger to my forehead and mouthed the words, “Play smart.”

    Just curious…why when I pushed with a M of 6.5 with A-K was it so “completely misplayed”? Was it because you had not told me beforehand that was the correct play? Also, is hooker island still afloat at the Rio?

    I like to think hooker island is always alfoat no matter where its’ located. I just came by the way.

    maybe Sang should not be allowed to post after 7 pm…I understand that would only give him a 3 hour window for posting on most days but I think it would be best for the kids.
