I guess the bad beats finally caught up to me … I was near the top of the leaderboard all day, but in the last quadrant got smacked … as did Gavin Smith, via bad beat, who was my pick to win it all. Phil Hellmuth also advanced by suckout to my detriment.

Don Cheadle vs. Paul Wasicka
Phil Ivey vs. Vanessa Rousso
Scotty Nguyen vs. Ted Forrest
Daniel Negreanu vs. Dario Minieri

(Mathers is 10th, I’m 26th, TBR is 46th. And even though both Shronk and “Stapes” are both tied for 53rd, overall the PRR forumers are kicking Pokeratizen ass.)
