Las Vegas

I'm back from Vegas. What a trip! I had a blast. Everyone was great. I met some really cool people. I'll write up more details later. Some funny and crazy shit happened. As you know by now, there was a fight at Paul's table in the poker room. Grubby hit quads and there were 2 midget sightings. Felicia kicked butt and won the Blogger Tourney. I had some great conversations with a lot of people and can't wait until the next time we get together. Playing poker, hanging out, getting wasted, doing early morning SoCo shots with Al and Eva, not sleeping, and meeting a bunch of wonderful people was the best way to spend the 4 + days. I had some of the best conversations with Iggy and Daddy. They were really cool. So was everyone. Iggy and Glenn gave some great advice. HDouble had a great write up about everyone. I'll write more later.

Thanks to The Poker Prof, his dad, and Foiled Coup from lasvegasvegas. They helped get the pros together for the early morning breakfast. Also, thanks to Pauly and Dick Gatewood from Sam's Town. They all did a great job in setting up this event. Dick was great and worked really hard to set this tourney up for us. Everyone at Sam's Town was friendly. We were treated very well by everyone including the pros. Thanks again to everyone! The Vegas trip ruled!

Ron Rose, CJ (back), and Me & Maudie chat with Marcel Luske

More details soon . . . .

I was so jealous of you, Pauly, and Grubby getting to stay that I went to the casino the night I got back (we had a meeting across the street) and I won $500.

It was great meeting you, hopefully we'll get a chance to all do it again!
