Welcome To The Zoo

Thursday, June 21st, 2007, 3:13 pm

OK, first post at the new site, let’s see how this goes. I’m actually writing this at my usual spot in the Amazon Room, watching as thousands of donkeys file in for yet another $1,500 N0-Limit event. This would’ve been a good event for me to play–low buy-in, smaller field because it’s on a Thursday, the Amazon Room one great aquarium–but I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’d be dead money and I decided that I’d like to KEEP my money. I don’t minding spending money on neat things like noise-canceling headphones (which I’m wearing right now and love, love, LOVE) but why donate my hard-earned money to Harrah’s and someone like Allen Cunningham who actually has a chance to win the damned thing? Maybe next year I’ll try a WSOP event. When I’ve played more than 100 hands of live poker in the past year.

Another full house today. Players are seated in the Amazon Room, in the tent, in the hallway outside Buzio’s, the seafood restaurant near the Rio casino. Total zoo. Think I’ll watch from this side of the bars.
