We have 45 players left and are currently 5 off the money. Min-cash is almost $1200, and first is $44,000. I actually never look at prize money (really I don't), but for the benefit of stakers I'm doing it today.
Average chips is 127k.
Having said that, I want to make the money but am never going to just roll over and be blinded down to matchsticks. I just shipped my whole stack with AK. Nobody wanted to play. 75k again.
Now on 8 bigs and looking for a hand I like. No complaints really, I've just had no cards this afternoon, and no chips with which to manoevre. Just the way it goes. Watch this space.
I've jumped into my next event, which is the $200 Classic. With 10k chips and me coming in at 75/300/600 it doesn't allow for tons of creativity, and if I bust I likely wouldn't fire the second shell just for the sake of it. We'll see.
