But we're down to the last 27 in the WSOP meaning that the minimum the people going back for day 8 will recieve will be $352k but more importantly the day will play down to final 9.
From a Brit point of view we have 1 left in James Akenhead (http://www.pokerhitsquad.com/) so will be railing him from afar via http://www.pokernews.com/wsop/2009/event-57/ live updates to see if he can make it to the November 9.
A decent shout also need to go out to fellow blogger Chuck Clark (A Year in the Life) who came a more than very respectable 115th for $40k and who I lived the dream through until he bust out on Day 6. Well done Sir.
On a personal level I have played 50 of the $10 turbo DYM and have won just 6 more than I have lost and only the rake has kept me level but am going to plough on regardless.
I have found that playing when you are calm and collected seems to put you in a better mindset than when you are pissed and just had a ruck with the Mrs!!! So with this in mind I am going to avoid the Mrs to safeguard my poker. (That might not be the right way round)
Enough for now.
Good luck to James Akenhead in his quest for the November 9.
Builder on the 3rd floor forgot to bring his saw up with him. He shouts down to his mate but he can't hear him so he does sign language. He points to his eye (I), his knee (need) and moves hand back and forth in a saw motion.
His mate nods, pulls down his pants and starts wanking furiously.
The builder runs down the ladders as quick as he can and shouts "What the fuck are you doing?? I said I need my saw!!"
"I know" said his mate. "I was just letting you know I was coming!!"
