I was looking forward to this event since I considered shorthanded No-Limit to be my best game. I drew table 127, seat two, in the field of 548. Reza Payvar, a friend of Amir Vahedi's who played much like him, had seat four. I got no love from the cards and was down to 2075 at the break. Top player Humberto Brenes came in on my right in seat one and started raising a lot of pots. I continued getting nothing and lost my desperation all-in, out 352nd.

Dinner was at the Silverton steakhouse with Perry "The Baiter" Friedman, Rafe "Tiltboy" Furst, and Avi "Two Cokes" Freedman. The food was decent but the most expensive wine they had was the 2001 Mt. Veeder Cabernet so we ordered that, which was nice.

Tomorrow was the big $1000 rebuy No-Limit Hold 'Em event.
