Vegas Teaser

Im Back....SIGH.....

I didnt cash in the ladies event. I'll go into more of that in a thorough trip report. My feelings on the structure may be part of an interview CarmenSinCity is doing for Pokerworks. Yes I was interviewed along with Change100 and another gal Carm met at the MGM (Kelley) .

All I can say is a blogger gathering is much like Dead Tour. A bunch of like minded kewl/kind people or friends who have never met. Its gonna take a bit to compose all my thoughts on the weekend.

After my red carpet walk of shame out of the RIO with Carmen, (and yes its much as Snake5970 told me it would be, when you bust out of your event it is a bad sickening feeling of Oh what could have been) I went back to the Orleans where I was staying and had some Mexican food.. I then went down to the Orleans Poker Room and played the 7 PM tourney......

AT 2AM THIS MORNING I BUSTED OUT IN 3RD PLACE FOR $1130 AND $35 IN BOUNTIES. . On a $100 buyin. Thats a little bit better Rate of return then I would have made for the low cash in the ladies event. I also cashed in Caesars Palace noon NLHE $200 buy-in finishing 14th of 187 for $370. These were both very tough fields.

More later.. I literally busted out finished packing caught a one hour cat nap and caught the 4:15AM shuttle to the airport.

Hey girl!!!!!!

It was so good hanging out with you!!!!!! I hope you'll be able to come back out for the main event, but if not, then I look forward to seeing you in December for the next blogger bash. It was nice to have a sober companion.

I'll have more pictures up tonight and then I'll probably have the article done by Wednesday!

Wow, those Orleans Donk-a-ments are really hard to do well in! You are right as well, that is some good money for the buy in and amount of hours played. Congrats on that! Money is more important than one cash at the WSOP right?
