Friday Night Poker
So, Friday night my roommate and I headed over to the Stratosphere for a little donkarama tourney. We used to play there all the time and we had some good luck in the past, so we figured "what the hell?" Well, I sit down at my table, the room is quite small, they have a total of 6 tables, and who ends up sitting in the 9 seat (yes, it's the 9 seat, they squeezed ten of us in at a table)...
Anyone recognize this guy?
I have to say, I never thought I'd be sitting at the Stratosphere playing in a $60 tournament with a WSOP Main Event Bracelet Winner. But, hey, I guess stranger things have happened right? He was way cool. I wasn't going to say anything and blow his cover, but the loud mouth in the seat next to me gets on his cell phone right before the tourney started and starts wailing loudly "hey, your never gonna believe who's at my table, Tom McEvoy, It's not every day you play with a bracelet winner huh??" Then he goes on to say "yeah, I'm gonna bust him - I can't wait". Tom took it in stride, just kept reading his magazine. I mean, how do you get on the phone and talk about someone, right in front of them?? He could have at least gotten up and walked away from the table and talked shit about him right? Either way, the obnoxious guy busted out way before Tom did, so whatever.
So, I didn't win at the Stratosphere, but I did last a lot longer than Don did. ha ha That wasn't hard to do since Don busted out on the 2nd hand.
Next, we head over to the MGM to meet up with this guy...
We had so much fun! His wife is so pretty and so sweet. I wish I could have spent more time with her, but she went off and did her thing, the three of us managed to play at the same table for a few hours and we had a blast.
I finally hit quads!! I have never ever gotten quads in a live cash game. I was dealt pocket fours and on the flop came two more fours! I checked and let people bet into me, which they did. I didn't make a ton of money, but at least I got paid off a little bit.
I hit a few sets Friday night too. Good night for me for poker! I need to stick to cash games. I suck at tourneys.
So, I never got to finish my story about last week when I played at the MGM, I was playing in my pokerinfo.nl sweatshirt which kept me very warm and comfy by the way. So, I headed up to the counter to cash out, when an attractive guy comes up to me and says, "hey - I know this sweatshirt". He was from the Netherlands! How cool!!!!!
Here's a picture of us...
I wish I wasn't leaving when he approached me, I would have loved to have sat down and played some hands with him. I'm telling ya, those Dutch guys really know how to turn on the charm :)
Well, I hope to head over to the Mirage tomorrow for another pool review - have a good Sunday - go Ravens!!!
