Vegas Vacation – Part 1

By on Jun 17, 2011 in Featured, Poker, Team Moshman | 0 comments

I don’t know if there are words in the English language that will help me fully articulate just how much fun this week here in Vegas has been, but I shall try anyway.   After arriving on Sunday and spending way too much time in lines to get my rental car, I was finally able to make the trek to where I was staying. Since it wasn’t too far from the Collin and Katie‘s we ended up going to lunch and then Katie and I went shopping. Now, normally shopping is not something I’m a fan of (if it can’t be bought off Amazon I usually can’t be bothered) but this was shopping with a purpose. Katie had recently decided that she wanted to learn to golf and this trip was all about getting the “little” things that you don’t realize that you need: shoes, balls, tees, glove, etc. We managed to find a pair of shoes that Katie was happy with, fit well and were pink...

Good Luck Katie and I’m Headed to Vegas

cross posted at teammoshman.com   ******   My friend Katie is playing in the WSOP No Limit Shootout today.   For those not familiar with it, the shootout consists of dividing everyone into tables of 9 or 10 (not sure which) playing down till there is one winner.  Then those winners combine into tables and play down to one winner.  It’s kinda like The Highlander in that they keep repeating the process till there is only one.   It started at 12pm pacific time.   I sent her a text message at 12:23pm, “Have you won yet?”   29 minutes later she replied back, “haha I have a leggy image”   I’m assuming it’s cause she showed up Cake Style, but I have no idea what that had to do with the bluff she “had to show down” on the 2nd hand.   Anyway, good luck Katie.   *****   I finally got everything set up over at Merge to start playing again and...

It’s a bigger issue than we may want to admit.

  So the month of April was a bit of a rollercoaster for me.  I started the month with a quick trip to Oakland to see part of the A’s opening series vs Seattle.  Then a few days later I was off to spend a week in Chicago.  A lot of people have that one “dream” city that they would love to visit.  For most it’s some place like New York or Paris.  For me it was Chicago.  Three years ago I got to spend about a day and a half there and go to two Cubs games.  It wasn’t enough time.  So, when my friend and I saw that the A’s were going to Chicago for a series with the Sox, we booked our flights and hotel and hit the road.   It started off a little rough.  Not so much for me, I got there on time and with little hassle.  But my friend Geoff had to take a different flight and got stuck on the tarmac for three and a half hours.  This wouldn’t have been an issue except for the fact that we had...

Game Over People

I didn’t have much luck last time Collin ran a competition.  It was back in the Stox days and the person that could best describe what was going on in the SNGWiz chart below won a video analysis from the man himself.     I, of course, knew exactly what the situation was and posted my response.   “Thank you for finding the pictures of the first time someone tried to teach me to snowboard.”     After a few other people attempted to answer Collin posted:  “Haha I’m tempted to end the contest today and give it to the snowboarding guy.”   He wasn’t tempted enough.       But this time I have done it.  I’ve got this one in the bag.   I did make a slight change to the title, but only because I feel that this helps open up the book to a demographic that wouldn’t normally be inclined to pick up a math book.   And, of course, once my submission is declared victorious, I will be adding the...
