At first I was feeling guilty for not updating this site for so long, but then I realized that 50% of the people who read this site are here doing other things than reading blogs. (That other thing is drinking.)

Vegas is a blast so far, I'm doing really well in the poker rooms. I'm up for every single sessions so far, which I attribute to an incredible card rush and very little skill. I have saved a few bets here and there when my opponents were doing everything short showing me their cards when they have a big hand, so maybe there is some experience showing.

The Blogger Event was a ton of fun. I was fortunate enough to have one of two pros on my immediate left, putting pressure on me every time I wanted to play a hand. Thanks, Jay Greenspan. Actually it was fun talking with him and he gave me advice on how I could have played a few hands better.

Of course I got knocked out early, but it did take a Royal Flush to beat me. The board showed TQKA of hearts, and I had the Nine. My opponent bet out, and I didn't think anyone would bet out so big with a Royal, so I pushed and got the ultimate Insta-call. I don't know his name (shame on me) but he did have the funniest line of the day..."Speaking of flops, the world cup is on." Nicely done.

Anyway, the insanity continues....I'm off to some poker room somewhere.

Nice to hear you are doing well.

Great to see you, sir. The number of two-out suck-outs and huge hands at that tourney were astounding, no? 3 straight flushes that I heard of, including the royal that got you. Ugly, ugly, stuff. Glad to hear you're making some bank at the cash tables.
