Vegas - Day 2 Quicky

Day 2 in the desert was spent almost entirely playing poker. After a quick stint at the pool, I a sent a text to Tony Bigcharles a/k/a TBC a/k/a sevencard2003. We decided to meet at the Flamingo to play some cash before heading over to the tournament being held later in the evening in his honor at 8:00 at the Riviera.

When I arrived, they were just opening a third $1/2 table, and I grabbed the three seat. Tony arrived shortly thereafter and, after a table change, grabbed the four seat. I ended up running well, and made back most of my losses from the night before... I hit quads twice, which tends to make the game easier... A couple of hours in, fellow bloggers Lightning and Rob showed up. Rob, who had a car, left with Tony and drove downtown to the Four Queens to watch Mexican porn for an hour or so in Tony's room (although, I suspect both "gentlemen" will deny this...). Lightning ended up taking Tony's seat. Around 7:00, right as we were planning to leave to head to the Riv, lightning gets dealt pocket AA and..... Well, I'm sure he'll write about the hand at www.lightning36.blogspot.com when he's ready...

The TCB tournament was a great time.... Eighteen people showed up, and I succeeded in my goal of not busting out first. It was cool to finally meet many of the folks who have been participating on this blog and others... Stump, Josie, Poker Grump, Stack and others. Special thanks to Koala and the folks at the Riviera for setting up the event. It was a great evening which even Josie's uncalled for aggression and bullying could not ruin...

Well, off to the tables . . . Again.

  2. I only WISH we had spent time on Mexican porn, Pete. That's all I say for now.
