WSOP -- T Minus16 Days

PITTSBURGH -- Sixteen days until Day 1 of Larry's Main Event Tournament. Today's tournament at Rivers Casino started at 12:15 with 85 players. It was a "deep stack" that can last as long as 12 hours. He was short stacked early but worked his way back. After about 5 hours, it reached the point where a lot of short stacks were going all-in. By then Larry had a better than average chip stack, and he was holding pocket jacks. He decided to call an all-in matched with a slightly bigger stack who, it turned out, had pocket queens. So 25th place out of 85.
