Back to the Grind
So, I had a very low key weekend. I didn't go to the pool like I planned, it was really cloudy. I did go to the grocery store and spent way too much money. Whatever.
The MGM wasn't very exciting. In fact, I moved tables like twice and then I moved around at each table a few times. It sucked. There was nobody fun to talk to and I wasn't getting any good cards. And then, this British guy sat next to me, he looked like a real life Austin Powers with the jacked up teeth and he STUNK so bad. I'm not even going to say who it was, but he's been on ESPN a few times, he plays in teh main event and I see him around town all the time. That's why I'm not going to say his name, because I know I'll run into him again, but he's the reason I finally left, he stunk so bad and I couldn't stand sitting next to him. Guys - and girls too - if you are going to play poker be thoughtful of others and take a shower first, maybe even throw on a little deodorant - jesus! It's not rocket science people! I broke even - won a few pots, lost a few pots, got thai food for dinner and came home. I did see mookie though! I hope to have dinner with him and the gang sometime this week.
I might have to take a break from the MGM for a while. I know too many people there. That's not always a good thing. I have a very predictable way of playing and it seems that a lot of people there KNOW how I play for sure. Not to mention, I was offered ecstacy the past two times I played there. True story! I think next weekend I'll hit up Caesar's since they have a decent poker room, or maybe I'll head back to the Red Rock.
What's up with all of the poker violence lately? Another private club was robbed over the weekend on the East Coast and it ended in death. That's what happens when you keep gambling illegal, it becomes a hidden, secretive, dirty thing. And people get hurt!
Well, back to the daily grind - happy monday!
