3 Comments to “(Way) Outside the WSOP – Day 33

  1. Grunkzzz

    (Richard Ferro)
    I moved tables with 55,000 chips. I was playing fine up until that point. I usually make a concerted effort to not play any hands for 1 rnd of play when I move tables. I proceeded to play every hand and then shoved all in with nothing against a player I knew nothing about on the turn, for no other reason than I am a donkey. This has happened to me before, but never in the money. Why do I do this?

  2. Grunkzzz

    I want to add, I didnt feel excited or any crazy emotional state. My friend thinks it was because he just walked up and I was showing off. I’m not aware of any desire to show off, and personally dont think playing like a complete moron exemplifies showing off anyways.

    You know what you’re doing, Grunkzz … this attempt to go all Jamie Gold on this tourney’s ass just didn’t work out. At least you were able to salvage the min-cash. But you’ll be in this spot again, and next time be ready to make the right plays (or non-plays) to get to the final table.

    (Really, I thought this one was going to be La repeated.)
