DOYLISM OF THE DAY: “When poker gives you lemons, you gotta make lemonade.”

Every muscle in my body is aching. I just got knocked out of the $ 50K HORSE tournament. Three days of playing 12 or more hours totally exhausted me. I thought I was tough enough to hang with these kids but my body really broke down. I almost set a WSOP record I wouldn’t have been proud of – three time bubble boy. I was 16th and fighting to make the money, which I barely did. At least I won most of my side bets. I really wanted to win this but there is nothing you can do when the blinds and antes get so high. The only thing I can say is good luck to the remaining players.

The tournament is about over for me now. I have so many commitments for book signings, documentaries, and interviews; I don’t have time to play.
