I didn't have to work tonight, so I was able to play in hoyazo's tourney. It was a good time even though I didn't even make it to the first break. Congratulations go out to my boy, MiamiDon for taking first place!!!! His game has improved so much since we moved out here to Vegas. I had a great time on the girly chat thing with Iakaris, JJOK, Jordan and of course my boy Waffles. We also played in a cash game later in the night (after we were both knocked out of the Hoy). It was a good time!!
As I was flipping through the channels a few minutes ago I stumbled across a movie on the guide channel that's supposed to be on in about an hour. It's called High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story. How excited am I?? I was going to go to bed but I'm staying up now. I had no idea there was a movie about Stu Ungar. I read his book a while back and I loved it. Even more exciting - Michael Imperioli (of the Soprano's) is playing Stu in the movie. I don't care if the movie has a half star rating - I'm definitely watching. Hopefully I'll have good stuff to report about it tomorrow.
In other poker news - I suck!! I've played in a few $10 SNG's lately and I haven't come in the money in any of them. I did make a little bit of money in the cash game tonight, but not enough. My on-line poker account is going down down down. Thankfully, my live game bankroll is okay. I'm definitely playing tomorrow at the Red Rock. I would love to chalk up a winning a session.
There was a nasty shooting last night at the Silver Nugget Casino. I've never even heard of the place, but apparently it's in North Las Vegas and it's a locals hangout. They showed the video on T.V. - this guy pulled out a gun right on the casino floor and shot another guy and killed him (they were having a verbal dispute). He also injured an innocent woman playing on the slot machins. Hopefully they'll find him - right now he's on the run. Craziness!!
In other Vegas news, Operation P.I.M.P went down last night. Over 180 prostitutes were arrested last night (mainly over on Tropicana and over by Fremont Street). P.I.M.P stands for Prostitues Incarcerated by Metropolitan Police. It was meant to send a message to prostitutes and pimps that Vegas doesn't encourage prostitution. That's all fine and good, but while they were planning this big raid, who was out looking for all the killers?? It just seems like they should maybe send a message to all the gang members that have infested the streets and all the killers that are out there shooting up the town - ya know? Okay, I'm done ranting.
I don't know if anyone else watches Entourage, but I'm hooked. I love that show. On last night's episode, the guys go to an amusement park in L.A. I did some research on the computer and found that there is a Six Flags in Los Angeles. It looks AWESOME!! They have 17 different roller coasters. I love amusement parks and I didn't think there were any around here. I was WRONG! The next time I have a few days off, we are heading over there. I already decided where we are going to stay - the Hilton cause it's the closest hotel to the park. I did the mapquest thing and found out it'll only take about 4 hours to drive there (it's about 250 miles). I'm so ready!
