Well, it's still too painful to post about my main event, I just can tell you now, that I didn't have any luck but I didn't play my best either. I made at least 2 mistakes and you just can't made any, well, some people can (Aaron Kanter, Tiffany Willamson in last years WSOP ME), but people with "average" luck like me shouldn't (average, yeah right).
Right now, the main even is in its n-th day, hah, don't even know how many days, but the players left will be playing in their 6th day. Out of the 8773 players that started, there are 45 players left. Who are we rooting for? Well, I have 2 friends left in the field. The amazing Eric "Rizen" Lynch and the colorful Costa Rican Humberto Brenes. Humberto has a short stack with 565,000 good for 41 out of the 45, but Humberto is a pretty good short stack player. Eric has a 1,900,000 good for 19 out of 45, and it doesn't matter if Eric has a short, medium or big stack; he's like the "Neo" of Poker, the chosen one, whatever it needs to happen, it will happen. He has supernatural powers, whatever he wants to admit it or not. Both are extremely nice guys, I have had the fortune to talk poker with Humberto in several occasions through the years, in my traveling to several tournaments across the country; since we share our beautiful Spanish language. He was the first I talked about my hands after being busted from the main event on Sunday July 30, and he nicely gave me his advise about how he would have played the hands, all this while signing like 100 autographs and getting his picture taken with plenty of fans. Eric is not that well-known by the general public (so far), but he will be, the same Sunday I had the chance to hang out with Eric for like 3 hours talking about poker, life, family and some other things; I really enjoyed the time I spent with Eric. In all the time I spent in Vegas last month, I just took like 5 pictures with my camera, and the only two I took with an individual were with precisely Humberto and Eric; and here they are in the final 45 of this monster field. It would be real sweet if they can make the final table.
