Just curious, when you were down to four handed. What did you have vs Jimmie (skinny kid who won it) on the I believe 35KK board where you checkraised him on the flop and turn. Also what did you think of his play overall, and how big of a douche is the old guy who finished 2nd?

[/ QUOTE ]

Actually the action on the hand went I raise to 30k w/ A9o, He flat calls on the button... Flop K75ss, I bet 44k and he called... Turn was Kh, and I checked he bet 110k, and I moved in for 120k more and he folded... Really one of the sickest hands I've ever played...

And I think he plays pretty well... His thing is that a lot of people think he's way crazier than he actually is... He gets a lot of action that he shouldn't because of the way he looks... And ya, the old guy Kelly was such a douche... When we were 4 handed He said he was the best player left and I almost laughed out loud... He was so by far the worst player left...

Jimmie has been killing the 10/20 bellagio game buying in like 30k etc for almost a year now. He does get crazy action. Also Kelly does the same thing, just not the killing part, let's just say he talks a big game... I was just curious what others thought of his play.

Also on the hand I was looking at that board thinking, neither one of them have [censored]. LOL, I really thought you were both making a move. My friend said Jimmie has got to have a king here... aparently not. Nice play.

I busted with about 100 left today, still haven't won a single coinflip in the month of November in the 10 live events I've played.

I ended up sticking around the Bellagio until 8:20 or so because I didn't want to deal with traffic, and Vivek was still in with 40 left and a TON of chips. He played a fun hand vs Gavin Griffin:

old lady who'd been limping a lot limps in EMP at 400/800. folds to Vivek on the btn and he makes it 3200. from the bb, gavin very quickly makes it 9600 (I think that's right). old lady folds, and Vivek 4-bet shoves for ~20k more. Gavin eventually decides to call.

Vivek: KJo
Gavin: T7o

Vivek holds with K-high taking the pot down.

Does anyone know if the B is going to be having any super satellites for the main event in the 100-500 dollar range? They only show the single table $1,500 satellites on Bellagio's web page. I'm going to be in Vegas for at least a week as of the 10th...

i would advise against this, two events have already been cancelled and I wouldnt expect many runners to show up at this event (which is at 3 pm I believe).
