I played my 2nd 1500$ event at the series yesterday which ended up getting 2800 runners. I was able to chip from starting 4500 to 10k chips when my AQ held against A9hh on Qh Th 8c flop. After getting some chips I decided to open a lot of pots and play very aggressive, I lost a small pot JJ vs AQ doubling up the 3k shortstack and then lil later, a crucial hand came up against the same opponent who I doubled. I opened 22 to 450 at 100-200 no ante, he was the only caller, flop came J 3 4 r and I cbet 550, he called. Turn was a 6 and I decided to double barrel and bet 1150 basically trying to fold out some of his floats and weak mid pairs, he called again. River was a 5, so the board read J 3 4 6 5 and I value shoved my 22 for pot size and he snap called with 67ss to get me very shortstacked. I busted shortly after with AQ vs A8 in multiway pot, I was very short so really didnt matter much.
Today is huge 1k with a very fast structure, I plan to play to build a stack or bust early. There are few more good events left but not much before the main event on the 7th. I feel pretty good about my live game and would really like to have a deep run in one of these, lets see how it goes.
Thats all for now, will update how the 1k event went.
