We’re Almost Engaged

Monday, June 11th, 2007

I’m charging Liz Lieu’s iPod with my computer. Cool, huh? It’d probably be more cool if she’d actually been the one to bring it over, but she’s probably a bit shy and all. In other news of galactic self-delusion, I’m thinking more and more about maybe playing a World Series event. I know, Je suis…

Massaging the Information

Saturday, June 9th, 2007

I think I should point out that I’ve been posting WSOP stuff over at the UltimateBetBlog too. Including something I wrote today about the most important discovery I’ve made about poker so far at the World Series.

Very Random Stuff

Friday, June 8th, 2007

I was actually pretty wired and hungry after I left the Amazon Room at 5AM on Friday so I grabbed a burger and a beer and played video poker for all of fifteen minutes when this happened: I’m not quite in Richard Brodie territory, but still. I won’t be able to attend the Blogger festivities…

Crazy Day

Wednesday, June 6th, 2007

I worked the 5PM tournament at the WSOP yesterday, $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo. Ugh. Split-pot games are a challenge. You watch a hand, a big pot builds…and then it’s chopped up. And a chopped pot, with very few exceptions (there was one at the final table filmed yesterday) is not dramatic. By the end of the…

The Comforts of Home

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

When I’m home, that’s where I work–from home. The dining room is my office, the kitchen my cafeteria. There are times when I get a touch of cabin fever and I go to the library to write, but for the most part I like working from my apartment. It’s a cozy little place that suits…

The Glamor, The Glitz

Monday, June 4th, 2007

I got home from the Rio around 2:30 in the morning, my ass dragging a bit. But not too bad, I’ve stocked up on sleep the last few days and I felt pretty good. Until I walked through the front door. It was hot. Not warm. Hot. The air conditioning in our condo crapped out….

Sipping From the Fire Hose

Saturday, June 2nd, 2007

The first day of the World Series was about as I expected–nuts. People, everywhere. Standing in line, standing in the aisles, standing around. I sat at a table just outside the poker area and furiously wrote hand updates and chip counts as our floor reporters brought them in. At times it was a bit crazy,…

Here We Go

Friday, June 1st, 2007

Yes, the World Series of Poker starts today, and yes, I’m nervous. Keyed up. Want to get started, want to do the kick-ass job this event deserves. I’d like to think that I know what I’m about to get mixed up in…but in truth I probably have no idea. I’ll just have to experience it…
