Down Sunday

Today is a down day. After the hetic pace of the last few days, that is a relief. I woke up around 10 am, surprisingly fresh considering I didn’t get to bed until about 5 am. I’ll pay that price later. I got packed and checked out of the room around 11. I stored my bags at the bell station and went for brunch. Then it was time for some poker. I played $2-4 limit for 4 hours and took a total of $24. Not a great rate or pay per hour (almost 1.2 big bets per hour) but it was high of entertainment value.

Then I went to talk to Monster about what was next and to listen to the conversations between the partners. I have a lot to learn about this business, just out of interest for now, but who knows what the future holds.

There was one more item on the list exciting events. Monster and I went the Steak House at Treasure Island with Trish from the Doyle Brunson Poker Network for a possible dinner with Johnny Chan. The meal was great but Johnny was busy with something at the Venician, so no Johnny Chan tonight.

From TI, it was time to go to the airport for the overnight trip back to Charlotte and the real world. It is so much fun stepping out of the grind and doing good work for folks that really appreciate what I do. That is certainly the case with ZTP, both players and management. I’m really looking forward to doing more in the future.

Tuesday is Mr. C’s operation so the jolt back to reality will be swift, but I as so grateful for the events of the last few weeks that I have a great deal of energy to give. Mrs. K’s family will need a great deal of help over the next few weeks. I’ll be there.
