Just a quick update. The day was filled with playing poker. We started with lunch at Caesar's and then poker at their poker room. I left there $150 lighter. I just could not catch anything to play for about 2 hours.
Next stop was the IP poker room where my luck improved. I found a few good hands and friends that wanted to donate chips. I got back a bit over $100 to drop my deficit for the day to $50.
The evening was spent at the MGM poker room for the blogger mixed games. We had three full tables of bloggers playing omaha, stud, crazy pineapple, and more; just about anything except hold'em. I found my best luck in omaha hi/lo. I left the MGM about 1 am with $260 more than I came with to put me up over $200 for the day. But I was not done.
I spent the rest of the morning in the IP poker room. I hit a rough hand when my big slick ran into someone's monster. I didn't see it, but the betting was too big and out of character. I think it was a set of 9s. In any case, that put me back about $120. I worked my way back up to leave the room plus $25.
So for the first time in my life, I am up over $1000 for a trip. This may be a high-water mark. The big blogger tourney is in a couple hours. Let the game resume.
