Doyle Thinks Men Entering Women's WSOP Events = Wussy

 

"A clear conscience is usually a sign of a bad memory."

After playing 5 events at the WSOP I still haven't cashed. I played the worst poker of my life yesterday in the Omaha 8 or Better. I had little interest in the event and played like a rank beginning. At least I got down to the final 30 players in 3 of the 5 tournaments. I may take a few days off and try to figure out my lack of enthusiasm. It's hard enough to win when you are focused so I've gotta turn things around.
