Last words on the WSOP, by Nate
I wasn't first out. I played pretty good and just had a little bad luck. But the best part of the experience was the experience. It was kind of an impromptu party in Vegas for all that could come. I would do it all over again in a heart beat.
Now to the poker. As I waded through what seemed an endless pool of poker tables and poker players I could not have been more nervous. I was the first person to sit down, talk about anxious. As others started sitting down I tried to break down the wall of uncomfortness with a witty line here or there, it seemed to work. Our table was unusually chatty. I bonded immediately with the players on my left and right. I don't know if you're supposed to do that. Actually, I didn't know a lot of what I was supposed to do since this was my first live tournament.
The first 2 hours seemed to last days. After that it started to seem like a regular game with your buddies. As far as cards go, I got a tad unlucky. Got my Aces busted twice against QQ's and JJ's. Even had Aces taken away because of a misdeal. I did get a straight flush, diamonds to the king. Unfortunately, no one had the Ace high flush or I could've made a lot more money. All in all it was a lot of fun and I hope to do it again.
Thanks to everyone for all of their support. See you at the tables.

...and here's the "swag" that PokerStars.com gave Nate to wear, but some of it he can't were on t.v. because it is a .com site which isn't allowed to be advertised on television.
Also, Nate will start is run for the final table at 12:00pm Sunday. Word is that the first rounds have been going as late as 3:30am! We'll be back tomorrow with LIVE coverage from Nate's table!
