I wish it was Thursday.....Guess Why?

I only worked a couple of hours yesterday, but I made great $$$. I topped it off with a second place finish in the Montego Bay Sunday tournament. $20+$20 rebuys. I was only in $40 this time, and second was a little over six hundred. Not bad for a Sundays work. I am still on the wagon, sucking down sugar free red bulls in record numbers. I had to quit after five of them yesterday, because I hadn’t eaten anything all day and I was beginning to feel a little weird. It did give me some wings in the tournament, as I felt hypersensitive to everything around me. I was really on and got an early chip lead. I managed to win a few more pots after that, and outlasted all but one for the final prize.

Sources at Montego Bay tell me that they are looking at starting a deep stack 30 min. round tourney every Sunday with a $100 buy in. Start time would be around 2pm. I am all for it, I would love to see some more tournaments in town with good structures and rounds that enable you to see more than a few hands.

I am planning a SLC trip today. My sister is coming from Logan to see my daughter and me tomorrow. I think an afternoon of bowling and pizza will be in order tomorrow. I am trying to find excuses not to go, but I owe my lil’sis a visit, she would be disappointed if I cancelled.

The Jazz have clinched a playoff spot due to a GS loss yesterday. I wish it started today, because the Jazz would have a great path to the finals with the brackets in their favor. A few more wins for home court would be nice.

I have been writing letters of a similar theme all week. It isn’t getting old one bit yet.

Almost nothing to write about in Wendover this week. The poker room is slow and there isn’t much going on.

Bill Cosby was at the concert hall this weekend. I heard the show was good but that coz was showing his age a little. Rick Springfield, of Jesse’s Girl fame, played on Saturday. Brian summed it up best with his reply when I asked him if he went to the show. He said”: Hell, no. I don’t want anyone thinking I’m gay!” It kind of cracked me up.

I went out for the first time in a while. I went to the Wendover Nugget Billiards Bar with Paulin. His wife showed up later and we hung out playing pool for awhile. I played pretty good. It was weird hanging out at the bar and not drinking at all. It was pretty easy, even though Paulin started offering me wild turkey towards the end of the night.

Apparently it got busier after I left, but the casinos didn’t really get going until after 8 or 9 that night.

I could really use a vacation myself soon. June sounds good. Maybe the whole month, who knows? I wish.

I wish I were in Vegas.....

I think today was a record low. I still made good money because I came in early and pushed a lot. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 2 table tournament on a Friday. We ended up with 4 games – 2 live and 2 tournament at 8:30 tonight.


Where did everyone go? I don’t know, but there weren’t any regulars in today. That is getting kind of regular itself.

The Jazz looked really good tonight in a 20+ point win against the Spurs. I didn’t get to see much at work, so I am waiting for the replay on ESPN.

Just Another Thursday

I am forcing myself to write today. I don’t have much to report about last night. I was looking for a catalyst for a no limit game, but it never appeared. We closed around 2am. I have taken to playing 13 quite a bit with Jerry and Tiff after work. I may host a 13 party in the neat future, I don’t know. I guess that’s all today….. Booooring.

Somebody come in tonight and make it memorable. Nothing to get me fired or anything, but let’s shake it up. A bad beat would be nice for sure.
