Day 1 Lima ATP main event
The tournament started with the day 1a for me, and what a starting day that was! I wasn't able to find my table right away, and when I asked the tournament director where it was, he showed me the way to the table that was being broadcasted via live stream. On top of that, I had the button for the first hand. Not hard to imagine that I felt that to be a good omen!
Day 1a had around 350 participants, and after 3 hours of playing, I had already doubled up thanks to hitting two sets against players with top pairs, and one well concealed open ended straight draw that was completed on the turn. I ended the tournament day being in 16th position.
Since I didn"t have to play in the day 1b event, I decided to play a $500 turbo event the next day - more about that in the next article!
