I've been playing as much poker as I can take over the last week or so. It's been going okay, but not as well as I hoped. Saturday I played the $1500 wsop event and was out in the first half hour 66 vs AA on a A65 flop. Then I immediately drove over to Bellagio and got into one of the best 10/20 games I've ever been in. One guy was playing basically every hand and playing terribly. There were also about 3 other weak players in the game most of the day. Of course I managed to lose about 4k in the game. The 3 big pots I played 2 I lost as a huge favorite and the other the terrible player had the 1 hand he could possibly have to beat me. It's fairly disappointing but if I could play in games like that all trip I'm sure I would be a huge winner. Last night I played a 5/5 PLO game at the rio where the average pot was probably bigger than the 10/20 no limit games I've been playing. The game was really good and I think I'll play a lot more PLO on the trip. Overall I'm up a decent amount but after taking out all the expenses - house, car, plane ticket, food, going out I'm only up a little bit.
Tony G has become our houses favorite poker player. We have watched these 2 videos probably 10 times each since we've been here.
Whenever we have a bad session and are tilting, we watch these videos to cheer us up. Pagel, Adam and I were considering going out Saturday night, but we ended up deciding if we want to go out anymore we have to do it right. As Tony G says - If you want to do this, let's do this properly. Unfortunently in Vegas that means spending at least a few hundred dollars. None of us are doing that great so we decided not to. If I'm not winning a lot playing poker I'm really against wasting money. I mean if it was in Shippensburg where the most you can possibly spend would be about $50 if you go all out that would be different. But here you can probably end up doing dumb things and spending close to $1000 then I would wake up the next morning pissed off about it. Speaking of throwing money away Mighty is coming out on Wednesday and staying for about a week I believe. Pagel and I set the over under on him going busto at 2 days. That means Pagel and I not only have to keep track of ourselves but we also have to make sure Mighty stays away from the blackjack tables.
