R-Day Minus 27

The Poker Mutant will be retiring (mostly) from poker on 1 January. This is the latest installment in his thrilling countdown to the End of Times.

No poker played today.

I’ve got a thing Thursday, so I’m unlikely to play anything then, but Friday is the monthly Final Table $20K GTD NLHE First Friday. If that goes well, then I may well be on a flight Saturday morning to Las Vegas for the WPT Five Diamond Super Satellite at noon at Bellagio, or the 7pm Turbo Super Satellite (though it would pain me to put $1100 into a 15-minute/level tournament). Next week is a Thursday afternoon satellite to the Venetian/CPPT $500K GTD NLHE Main Event, which would sort of bring me full circle to 2011 when I plunked $2500 down for the most expensive tournament I’ve ever played (see “Grasping for the Ring”).

Meanwhile, congratulations to Steve Chanthabouasy for bringing another trophy back to the Northwest.
