Took 2 hour nap then went to binions and found a plo8 mix game. Notified miamicane but he was at a strip club celebrating his wsop win. Started hitting hands after losing initial buyin of 108 then rebuying 330 more. Was at one point up over $260 but when i left wasnt up near that much, and considered myself lucky i wasnt bluffed off a winner once (had she bet id folded.) then i lost a little on a bad VBJ machine after being way up on it for awhile.
ended up walking to the nugget after i got off the VBJ, and the game was very good but they were dealing like 2 hands every 10 minutes. 2 big fish both really slowing the game down, making horrible calls and shoves. both went broke, while i was still out about $25 and couldnt get a hand to play. then the game went down to 4 as everyone left, finally won a pot 4 handed and walked out a very small winner for that casino. overall i was up $120 when i went back to my room. rolls over $9700. i have to go back to binions after 8am when the slot club opens to claim my $25 free play off my daily voucher from the spin to win promotion, play it thru then grab a little food, and then change hotels and get moved into the IP for the next few days til friday again. once im in my new room ill sleep. would really and truly love to leave vegas, and take the amtrak going thru albq, ks, stlouis, all the way up to ac or philly stopping everywhere on the way, but just dont want to spend the money when i keep getting so much FREE in vegas. i know im way better off than i was years ago when i spent the money to travel with a lot less of a roll, but im an old man now and its too late in life to take chances anymore and restart over. too bad theyres no more good tourneys i might enjoy playing for a full year now, hopefully next year ill have a much bigger roll and get to play a lot more.
i do really feel good as this is the first time in 20 yrs i had over 9000 to work with at the END of the wsop. shows im making at least some kind of progress in poker.
