Vegas Vacation – Part 1

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

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

Cross posted at   *******   A while back my best friend that I’ve never met introduced me to one of his favorite poker bloggers.  If you don’t have Poker Grump in your RSS feed, do yourself a favor and add him immediately.   The Grump quickly became one of my favorite poker bloggers.   Reading one his posts last night gave me one of those “Dang, I wish I would have thought of that” moments.   I highly recommend that you actually click the link and read the encounter in his words, but I’ll give you the Cliff’s Notes.   While playing live at the MGM, he had to step away from the table for a moment and post the blinds when he came back.  The flop came K68 with the 6 and the 8 being spades.  He called the button bet with top pair no kicker and was watching the button for a reaction on the turn card when the dealer swept the cards up and was ready to move to the next hand. ...
