It’s about 74 degrees, no wind, pleasantly bright and sunny, and I’ve got the whole day to do nothing. WRONG! I’ve got the whole day to digest life, do some computer work, contemplate stepping back into live tournament/ring game play and decide just how pokerish oriented I can get. I read poker every day now, but as far as thinking it? Umnhhh!!!
The Poker Bowl was cranking at the Palms over the last four days. Wayne invited me, more than once, to visit and take some pictures and watch the action. He was dealing…I believe he’ll be on TV due to this stint. While one part of my brain told me I should be at the Palms, the other part of my brain argued that the last thing – in the world – I wanted to do was fade the traffic and parking (don’t forget the size of the Steed) and then go into a smoke filled casino just to watch a bunch of people that I’ve been watching, as I dealt and played, for years. Sure it’s news! Sure it’s exciting! Just not to me. I hope to go to the other side of that thought – in a hurry – and get back to where I find it exciting or interesting to go watch a bunch of pros battle it out on the green felt.
I do think that things will come around, for me anyway. That after the first of the year I’ll be out on one of those road trips I wanted to make a part of my new lifestyle, and I’ll be involved a little more in live play in Las Vegas, and just getting my feet wet again with the whole scene. But for right now, I have a great cup of coffee to toast through and more poker to read about. L-8-ter
