One has to wonder how many poker players can fit into any one area that hosts poker in this city. Looking at Bellagio’s Poker Room, the last few days, tenders the question, where is the WSOP actually being held? The big game hasn’t been up and running the last few nights, but all the players that make that room happen are in all of the events at the WSOP. Every other table in the room is running at max speed, with a list for each game that runs off the page. Continue reading And the beat goes on….
I’m not sure how to catch up. I’ll just start by trying and hope it works out well. I should be nestling down in my little bed by now, hoping the Sand Woman will sprinkle warm, non gritty sand all over me, and getting ready to drift into dream land, free of the Card Fairy and the woes of the world. Continue reading The WSOP and me – so far, Part II
Wow! It’s brutal to go from being Ms. Dracula-ette and sleeping during the day (hold the coffin and dirt from my native country please – I have a bed and love it), to trying to sleep ONE night so I can jump up and spend the daylight hours in a teaming mass of humanity all focused on one thing – POKER! Continue reading The WSOP and me – so far
This is a shorty – to be followed by, hopefully, a longy. I played the PokerWorks/TitanPoker free roll and went out so fast I almost didn’t know I got dealt in. Damn it! It was for a seat in the ‘big one’. I hope to have more news on that free roll later because I ‘sweated’ a long time friend, Than, as he fought his way to 8th (I believe) place and then went bust. *sniff* I so wished he’d win if I didn’t. Continue reading The WSOP has a seat for me
“Hello darkness, my old friend, I’ve come to talk to you again…” Simon and Garfunkel – Continue reading The Sound of Silence
*Ring…ring…ring* “Hello, Whiner Hot Line, this is Billy Bellyacher, can I help you?” Continue reading Whiner Hot Line
Damn it! I completely missed the PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker. This year the prizes were worth fighting for – a seat in the ‘big one’, and lots more. Don’t worry, I wasn’t there, even though I was registered and had planned all week long to take that day and play that tournament. Continue reading PokerStars and Father’s Day
Funny, I’ve been called a killer when I’m dealing – along with a variety of other names – but for the first time in my life, I actually thought I was going to kill someone. No, it’s not even close to what you might be thinking. No rage, no premeditated stuff, just simple death. I was cruising down Tropicana in the Silver Steed, 45-50 MPH, in the inside lane of three lanes. The light changed to yellow about 30 yards in front of me. No…there’s no way to stop and I wasn’t even close to a red light and the speed limit is 45 mph. Continue reading Killer!

That’s exactly where I am. I’ve concentrated on ‘being’ the wine, and I am. I’m an aromatically, gorgeous, deep red color right now and it’s quite toasty. Hey, I did go in to work tonight. I did sign up to play. I was on ‘hold’ for the first half hour and then out to play. Play I did. I only waited for an hour to win my first pot and I’m grateful that it was only an hour. But then I just had this little intermittent run of good cards that made big hands and I stacked up chips. I was in a $4-8H game. Continue reading “BE” the wine
