R-Day Minus 4: My Time Is Coming

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, but by the time the five or six people who see this read it, I’ll probably be in Las Vegas for the last big tournament of the year in the western United States: the Venetian Deepstacks Extravaganza V Event #14 $260K GTD NLHE.

Saturday is the third entry day for the $400 buyin event, there have been more than 600 entries so far, so it should go well over the guarantee.

That said, with just over $92K to go before my goal of $100K before the end of the year, I’d need to win a tournament with close to a $500K prize pool this weekend, which would mean another 800 or so entries on Saturday. It could happen.

Either way, my time is coming.

Hoping to see Kao Saechao and Steve Roselius down in Las Vegas! Happy birthday to Molly Anne Mossey and good luck to Jackie BurkhartKevin Mathers, and all the lucky folks heading to the Bahamas for the world’s largest $25K buyin at the PokerStars Players Championship! Safe driving to Carlos Welch.
