LAS VEGAS -- Larry played until 10 p.m. last night, Day 3. He was short stacked and finally had to push with a small pair (6s I think), and the other guy had Kings. It leads to a lot of "if only this, if only that," but ultimately, he did amazingly well. The guy next to him all day yesterday (on his left) was a pro from Belgium who is still in it and is one of the bigger chip stacks of the remaining players.
The payout starts with place 648. Today begins again at noon -- 666 folks still in it. Everyone will be playing so tight. Everyone wants to make the money.
Maybe next year.
