This is a first for me – back to my first ventures to Vegas, I always stopped by the WSOP, even if it was for a few hours. Later I had a media pass and went to take pictures and say “Hi” to players I know that come to Vegas during the series.
The dreams are still running but distorted lately, I’m not in the stress mode of trying to get to work or deal a game, although Jennifer Harman, my ex-husband poker player, and a few others are popping into the dreams, they’ve taken on a different texture lately. But in the meantime, the dreams of thousands of others are kicking off tomorrow in Las Vegas as the WSOP brings the pros, wannabes, newbs, and everything in between into Sin City.
I went back to find posts about Devilfish — Dave Ulliott — just to refresh my own memories and here are a few:
Hello Wednesday. That used to be hump day. But that was when everyone I associated with worked M-F. See…that’s the best part of life, when you move on to a new chapter or new place, your reality changes to match what’s going on at the present time.
Wow! Finally, the Rio was my first stop when I hit Vegas on Friday. I looked for some of my favorite media people but saw not one…I did see media but no one I knew.

I’ve been tossing around the $1,000,000 buy-in – The Big One for One Drop charity tournament – that is running right now at the WSOP. Continue reading All this insanity and there’s no cure
I think about all the things I haven’t yet accomplished – and then I drink a gallon of wine and just forget about the whole damned thing. Not exactly. I’m not drinking the gallon of wine but some days it’s a glass or three. Continue reading At the end of the day
Happy, happy everyone! Take the stress out of your life and eat a chocolate bunny today. Yeah…chocolate cures the ills of the world. I wish I had some right now. Instead I’m coming off one of the worst sessions of feel-bad that I can ever remember having.

The Mizrachi brothers are adding their own line to WSOP history by being the second brother team to be at the final table in an event. The other brothers are Ross and Barny Boatman in a 2002 PLO event finishing seventh and ninth. Check out a couple of my pictures in this article. Continue reading WSOP updating
Still fading the air card disconnect problem and can’t figure why it works – or seemed to work well – out in Pahrump and I’m having issues with it in Vegas. I had planned to test it out at Team Ford when I went to have the 50K tune-up done on the Steed…but they had Cox internet and I’m a sucker for a fast connection (that could be a loaded statement).
