Still Flying High

I'm still riding high from the amazing few weeks I've had. I mean, seriously, I graduated drug court, got an amazing new full time job at the Salvation Army, and of course the Ravens won the superbowl. It's so awesome!!!!!! FUN FUN!!!! Here's a few pictures from Superbowl Sunday.... Me and Amy (my friend from Baltimore and N.A. Meetings)
My mom and her friend Jane...
My dad and his friend Angelo....
All of us....
Another interesting thing is that I saw Nicholas Cage and Carrot Top in the VIP Section of the Sportsbook on Sunday. Neat huh???? I wish I could have gotten a picture but of course he had security and everything. Other than that, work has been good. I'm still very busy and happily my day flies by. I played in the Poker Palace poker tournament earlier tonight and didn't win. I won last week though so that was awesome. My uncle is flying into town and staying for a week at the end of this month and we only have a two bedroom house. He gets my room usually and I sleep on the couch, but that was when I wasn't working full time and it didn't matter if I didn't get much sleep. Now that I am working full time and I get up at 5:30 a.m. we have to arrange something else. So, my parents are going to put one of us up in a hotel for the week. I guess we are letting my uncle decide where he wants to stay. So, there is a possibility that I might be staying on Fremont Street for a week. My mom said they have a really cheap rates at the D Hotel I think. Salvation Army is actually right around the corner from there so it would be convenient to work, but I would be rather tempted to gamble a lot if I was staying there so that might be kind of challenging. We shall see. Good luck to those of you in the North East part of the country. I guess there is a big storm headed your way so be careful!!

Good for you. Any of the low buy-in tourneys are going to be hard to win or even cash consistently. The short time for each level and big jumps in levels results in a shove fest and its all luck at that time. On the cash game front, Ballys has moved their room closer to Vegas Blvd. There is a short wall, its quieter and less smoky. Nearby is a popular cafe and hallway to tower elevators means a lot of foot traffic from newbies. Three or more tables of 1/2 every night and just have to wait for somebody to make a mistake. Bad (good) players. $1 per hour comps so can go to the half price buffet at Rio on weekdays (13 or 14 bucks) or save up and hit the best current buffet at Caesars for $45. Please avoid the slots, have a good weekend.
