The bad news is I didn't make a staggering comeback to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. The good news is I moved up one spot and finished 4th which paid $8,800. I lasted about an hour and went broke the hand after the 5th place finisher. When I finished the tournament I felt like I was 95% sure I'd play the $5,100 main event. An hour later I was 50/50. Now I'm 100% not going to play it.
I've been playing well, but feel like it will be better to go home with a few grand for my efforts and good momentum going into the WSOP.
It will be back to the grind for two weeks and then off to Vegas!
