I'm off to play the WSOP from the 6th of June to the 15th. I'll play the $1500 Badugi. And I'll play some cash mixed poker games. And some other stuff. I'll post my results below when I get back.

I played tournaments and cash games.
I played the WSOP 20/40 mix. An example of the mix:
There were all kinds of players. Barry Greenstein played one night.
This was the first-ever badugi tournament at the WSOP.
I bluffed Bryce Yockey:
I busted the tournament half-way through day two after spewing away some chips playing making a bad multi-street bluff (which wasn't even a proper bluff because I kept drawing. If I had stood pat I woulda won). And I made another bluff which was maybe good in theory but I didn't have the right table-image for it at the time. I blame lack of sleep.
On day one, Chino Rheem was at my table playing loose-aggressive poker. He ended the day with a big stack. I managed to bluff him quite a few times in small pots so I ended up doing all right and took 71,000 chips with me to day two (starting stack was 25,000 chips).
I won a big pot (~400,000 chips) in 7-card stud where I got dealt rolled-up queens and hit quads on seventh in a big multi-way pot.
I busted on a no-limit hold'em hand: The under-the-gun player opened 2.5x and I shoved over the top on the button with eights in the hole for about 25 big-blinds (PokerNews misreported how many chips I was playing in this hand). There was a 1.5x big-blind ante so it seemed like a fine play. After thinking about it, I think just calling is the better play, but shoving can't be too bad. And there was some weird anti-bubble type thing due to tax considerations which it may be made shoving the best play after all.
