So the 40K Starts Today

28 May 2009

OK, so let's do this I guess. It all happens so suddenly despite planning for the start for months, you never seem totally ready to go. For me, there is a key reason: I got sick in Toronto. It wasn't swine flu, but I got really sick one night there and puked for a day. Since then eating has been tough, but yesterday I decided to be a trooper and get some exercise and push myself by golfing in the heat. It went OK for a while, but by #16 I was ready to pass out.

I spent the night relaxing in bed and watching TV, got to bed by about midnight and woke up at 9:00am. Slightly early, but not bad. I feel "OK" right now, but the test will be after I eat something. Either way, I'm going to do the best that I possibly can today in the 40k. I don't really vare what my table draw is at all. Seriously, I don't care if it's full of fish (impossible) or the best in the world. Sometimes a tough first table is a really good thing for me because it raises my level of play also. No relaxing, and no room for sloppy play.

I will be video bloggin' again at the WSOP as always, and you can find those blogs at www.fullcontactpoker.com as always. I'll also be doing twitter updates, my account is REALKidPoker.

Time to jump in the shower, pick out an outfit, get some food, hit a few chips in the backyard, then head down to the zoo at the Rio.
