Poker is what we are supposed to be here for so i'll start with that. Cash games have been going well for me... I went from a pretty big loser to a small winner. I'm still down a little overall for the trip due to tourneys. Our house is 0/11 in tourneys but we decided we were saving up our run good for the main event. I'm planning on just buying in. My dad still wants to take half my action for some reason. Dahlin wants to play some satellites the next couple days (God bless him). Last year he did satellite in and I sweated him from when there were 50 players left - 40 getting in. It was one of the most tilting experiences of my life and I wasn't even in the tournament. It took 2 hours for the last 10 players to bust with the average stack at the end being around 2 big blinds. The whole area was a zoo with players running from table to table every time there was an all-in. In addition, tables were blatantly colluding with themselves by telling their hole cards. Like I said previously - he loves pain. As for the others in the house, Pagel has finally been playing live after being in hibernation for most of the summer and has done pretty well. Mighty claims to be running like cow with 1 leg and is down a little. Although I'm not sure if a poker table is the type of table he's spent the most time at this summer. Cecil continues to grind full tilt.
We have had a bunch of visitors to the house in the last couple weeks. At one point we had 12 people here. Kopicki was here for 9 days and went out every single night. He must run on batteries because he was only getting 3 hours of sleep every night. He possibly experienced more of Vegas in 9 days than someone whose lived here for a few years. Then there's Jeff who is the biggest winner in the house but has only been here 4 days. The great part about the 4 days is they aren't consecutive. He was here Sunday the 27th - Tues the 29th then flew BACK on Friday and is staying until tomorrow or Monday. I guess when you run like he has at blackjack you want to play it as much as possible. I think he's up around 10k total now... although by tomorrow he could be even the way he bets.
We have been going out a lot including getting bottle service at 2 of the nicer clubs in vegas at Tao and Tryst. Mighty and Cecil were saying that this month has taken at least 10 years off their lives as much as they've been going out. We have a new house tradition that has started when going out. We love the French Bread at Walmart and buy at least 2 loaves per Walmart trip. Whenever we go out to the bar 1 person is in charge of carrying a loaf in the cab and into the casino. We then eat the whole thing before going to the bar. That's living baby.
Some other house tidbits -
The Kardashians is the official tv show of the house. At first I was making fun of them for watching it but it is a great show. Scott is hilarious and is an idol in the house
We have been flipping for a lot of food/alcohol and it seems to be fairly even this summer. We all have paid close to our share unlike last year where Dahlin ran like a Kenyan.
Cecil and Mighty almost got thrown out of a cab on the way home from the strip a few nights ago. The cab driver was trying to screw them and take them a way that has been closed the whole time we've been here. Cecil let him know he wasn't going to take that by screaming, "Turn the meter off cocksucker!" An argument ensued and 2 minutes the cab was pulling over to the side of the road with the doors open ready to throw them out. Luckily this isn't the first time someone has tried to throw Mighty out of a cab and he knew to threaten to call the Las Vegas Cab Commission and get the guy fired if he didn't take them home.
I'm probably playing the main event on Monday so gl me
