Vegas baby!

I haven't got much time to write a full blog post as I'm leaving in a couple of hours, but I am going to Vegas to get a taste of the World Series of Poker. I haven't been since 2007, so I am rather excited!

I am actually only going out there for 5 days. I know this might seem kind of silly, but I think it would be unfair on my son and fiancĂ© to go out for much longer at this point. I'll be gone for nearly 7 days with all the travelling, and having not left my 1 year old son (nearly two) for more than a couple of days up until now, I don't think I would be able to last too long out there, especially if I run bad. Maybe in the future I'll be able to take him and his mummy out with me.

Having gone on my own last time I went out there, which was inevitably a mistake, I am looking forward to sharing a room with another PokerStars SNG grinder, Longy11. It will be nice to have some company while I'm out there, and I know plenty of Brits out there who hopefully I'll get to meet up  go drinking with at some point.

I haven't got too much set in stone about what I intend to play, excepting for these two WSOP events (unless I make Day Two in the first one obv):

  • Event #18 - 11/6/2011 12pm - $1500 NLH
  • Event #20 - 12/6/2011 12pm - $1000 NLH

Perhaps they aren't the best tournaments starting chips wise, and they are said to be something of a lottery, but at least I'll have a shot at making some big bucks and winning a bracelet. I'll probably end up playing a Venetian tournament or two as well.

I'm not going to take my laptop with me so I doubt I'll update the blog whilst I'm out there, but I will have my iPhone so I'm sure I'll make the occasional tweet when I have wi-fi access. You can follow me @epitomised.

One time pls!

Best of luck, and have fun...
I think that says many good things about your character to not want to leave your son and fiance for too long! I really appreciate that.
