The TOC: It's Onnnnnn ....

TOC tonight. Very tough field including professionals and some people who have significant online and/or in-person cashes. Add in your regular group of bloggers who won seats and you have the makings for some very interesting tournament play.

I'm kind of surprised that I haven't seen more posts about the TOC (of course, some TOC regulars didn't make it in this time). As always, Hoy did an in-depth analysis of the field. Not surprisingly, he has me at the back of the pack. I do not understand how he assigned all the odds, however. Since the pure odds of cashing are about 4:1, shouldn't there be more than four out of 21 bloggers whose odds are less than 4:1?

The lack of dead stacks (as we had in some of the invitational tournaments) and the lack of people who were willing to gamble early or just were kind of clueless (as in a few of the BBT events) might make a difference.

So what happens when a hand features pro vs pro? Aggro player vs aggro player? How much will experience in big games count? Will tendencies change with thousands of dollars on the line? What will bubble play be like?

It looks like tonight's tournament will be fun. I'll catch you on the flip side ...


Full Tilt RNG got me good. Virtually no hands in 2 1/2 hours. J-J and A-Q sooted were about it. Discouraging that I didn't have much room to work. Ah well ...

Out in 12th. GL to the remaining players.
