Playing Smart, Running Good

Congratulations to two friends from St.Louis on their impressive runs at the World Series Of Poker. Jeff Landherr finished sixth in the $1,000 Pot Limit Omaha event yesterday, and Andros Ioakimides is one of 26 left in the $3,000 Six-Handed No Limit Hold'em event that re-starts for day three this afternoon.

Update at 9:37pm: Andros finished eighth in that event.

I can't handle the grind of twelve-hour days of constant concentration necessary to compete in big tournaments, which is why I gave up on them last year (I stick to cash games, where I can start and stop whenever I like), so I admire what both of them have accomplished.
