WPBT - Day 2

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.
