Event 1 Day 1C: Black Cat Luck and Distractions

$100 + $25 No Limit Hold’Em Deep Stack

Level 3 began with 120 players and they continue to push the action with just one hour left before closing re-entries. Where several tables were used in the cash game area for the early field on Day 1A, most of the players have been recycling through the upstairs tables with multiple entries.

While there have been a lot of knockouts, few of them have been of the bad beat variety causing people to raise their voice. One gentleman was unhappy with, in his words, “black cat luck” after a hand but that didn’t let it stop him from adding money to the prizepool.

Players usually don’t want to hear their opponent say, “I’m just trying to bust my stack so I can re-enter” when facing an all-in with a superior hand. The superstitious among them think it invites bad results. The 6-seat at Table 40 made that exact comment after tabling his AcJs against the 8-seat’s AhKs. They were holding similar sized stacks when the flop brought the bad luck board of JcTd6c and the 8-seat was sent the cage shortly after no help on the 9h turn or 4d river.

Blinds are up to 100/200 as they enter Level 4, the last for late registrations and re-entries.
