spent 5 days in vegas for a work conference turned poker trip. Played alongside many AVPers including miamicane, donkeytax, zippyboy, delgadobb and TBC. This quick trip report is really just a plug to get you to come read my blog. Head over there for extended coverage of my trip. Skip all the way to page six if you don't feel like reading about online escapades...
For reference, here is a summary of my winnings for the trip... err make that losings!!
- $540 Bellagio five star (27th out of 145)
+ $127 in $1/$2 cash at Strat (did well made one bad call giving up extra $35)
- $65 in strat 11pm tourney (out relatively early with AK < AJ all in preflop for 17X BB)
+ $225 at Mgm $2/$5 game (folded questionable AK preflop)
+ $330 Bellagio five star (11th out of 148) - just missed big payouts
+ $72 aria $1/$2 cash
- $125 aria tourney (out about 40th out of 100 on 3bet value shove with KQ < AJ over late raise)
- $150 osheas $1/$2 cash (yes I lost at Osheas, made one bad call I'd like back)
+$205 mandalay tourney (chopped 2nd out of 40?)
- $125 aria tourney ( lost 77 < 99) (25th out of 50?)
- $148 mgm $2/$5 (lost huge pot on river with flopped straight to two pair/boating up) - manhandedly table short handed other wise
- $127 riveria $1/$2 cash - had to correctly fold AA twice
overall lost $311
won $9 on cash and lost $320 on tourneys...
made some deep tourney runs but didn't cash in on them nothing exciting in cash games but I was def running bad overall. I can't complain as I had been running really well on line (go see sharkscope for vookenmeister) so variance was due to catch up with me.
this ends my streak of 9 straight winning multi-day trips including vegas/AC/carribean !!!
Fortunately it was a free trip and I will get my money back in per diem food costs. Still the trip was a loss but on a positive note I think with a little run good I would've scored big in the tourneys. it is a real bummer to bust out in 11th place right before the payouts jump up... with a chance to win $23K
Maybe next time!!!
see you online at Carbon!!!
