|Las Vegas Trip Report|
Hit Vegas 7/30 after loooooong delay in Atlanta about 1:30 pm. Checked into Excalibur ($20 dollar tip worked and was an omen for the rest of the trip!!). Bubbies checked into Hooters and came back to pick me up to grab some food. Made it to Stratosphere for 8pm tourny. Played fairly TAG and made it to final table out of 30 players, but AKs didn't improve versus 77 and left in 7th place. Felt good as this was 1st ever live B&M event. Went to PH after to play cash game and really like the vibe (except the LOUD construction going on all night.) Played until about 3:30a (total 27 hours awake) and finished up $115. After 3 hours sleep we headed downtown and played at Binion's $70 2pm tourney. Lots of players (around 75) Met some really friendly people and hung aroud to bust out at 25th on a runner runner flush after pushing with 2 pair(another omen). Later headed to Sahara 7pm event and played in with ELF (glad I didn't take the last longer bet LOL) Right before 2nd break get delt 56s in BB limp in with 2 others flop comes 569 rainbow. I check,as do other players. Turn is a Q of the 4th suit I check, EP player bets 100, fold to me, I raise to 300. EP re-raises all-in, I instacall. He has QJ. River is ,that's right,a J!!!! I'm out early, but oh well that's Poker right??? HEad to the Venetian to try to recoup. This place is WOW!! Sit down at a table where everyone thinks they are Phil Ivey or something. Play pretty well and cash out up $105. Sidebar-the last pot I saw at my table ended up being over $1100 as 3 players were all-in for over $300 each!!! Headed to MGM to end the night, this room was just ok in my opinion and after about 2 hours play left down $35.
