Yesterday I gave a shot in the most expensive tourney I ever played when I entered 2-7 no limit single draw for 10000$. I went out as 3rd guy from the tourney. First time ever I play 2-7 live but the 1500 collided with HORSE I was set up to play.

This day started with that Monica told me that I qualified for a final online to win a package for the Swedish Championship in Tallinn end of August for the low roller event. I told Monica I will not be able to complete it until the 1500$ 8-game starts that I already paid for. "You do! she says, "just keep the speed and get it finished in time!" Well, I entered the tourney and went on aggressively like when I had QQ and flops comes T98 and I raise, and reraise and call all in for the guy flopped the straight. I don't remember exactly what happen but I got a full house. And when I once again held QQ and the flopp comes 399 and the poor guy hold A9 and goes allin. Off course I get a full house. I guess this must count when I am playing this from my hotel room in Vegas. I also had time for a lunch before my 8-Game started.

Image
Not a fortune but a couple of nights at Hilton is great and buyin for a 220€ tourney on top of that. Monica and I went to a couple of friends that celebrated their 50 year old birthdays and we gave them a couple of night at Tallinn as birth day present. So this was perfect. And the main event have I already qualified for.

The 8 game went crazy good in the beginning and I won the first 16 hands we played!! With extreme good hands hitting everything in Stud and Omaha Hi/Lo.. Like omaha holding KK got the flop K99. It was crazy... But after first break i t turned the other way around and I got out after almost 7 levels.

Almost famous (and then we had not played 16 hands yet).

Tomorrow I might go for a 600 PLO as a change.

Via the internet you can be wherever you want. Did you not know that? :mrgreen: I sat at the hotel and "klonked" a seat to Tallinn... BTW I am ATM struggling in the PLO and are back to 30k starting stack at dinner break after being up to close 100k for a point. Frustrating when it arrives ppl and just goes allin with the starting stack without looking at their cards and of course scoop the pot.

That really sucks. I guess that is the thing with Omaha that you are rarely far behind. Some of those rich kids will enter late and just shove shove rebuy rebuy until they get a stack.

Omaha on my table was very enjoyable
There was a massive queue of alternates
Who having bought in were waiting for a seat just before - as in 5 pm
closing reg time 7 pm
It was the most enjoyable 600$ I’ve spent this trip
Old Japanese lady from Sydney flew in for a month to play wsop was a comedy genius she amassed a good stack muffin n duffin me n her n a lady between us from Colorado really got some banter going
I can’t remember Omaha hands
I had suited aces cracked 3-4 x and was soon down to 20 k from 30 k stack
It was a real grind
Once mrs Colorado bust
A youngish guy came in
He knocked 3-4 people out and 4 x his stack in 3 hands boom 1-2-3 of his first hands after sitting
I thought you big headed c* nt
But as I sat n observed he was just a very very good player
He always knew what the pot was what the winning had should have chip wise
He was all inwith a guy and the dealer said 56 k as he lost
No it’s 52 k he said
He was right every time
Very clever
Very observant
Very good player
I bust out n left
I’m booked in to play super seniors Monday 17 ththat will be my last time at the Rio
Toilet queues are ridiculous
Couple times when needing a shit I nearly never made it - all them lobster tails reappearing outta my tailpipe !
It’s so busy there honestly bring some food like cereal bars n be self sufficient
I was right in a corner such a trek for the toilet so I didn’t drink anything all afternoon
My mate paul Fowler 5 th at aria Omaha for $3500 I got 20% of him 1400 so paid him 700 yesterday over breakfast so nearly freerolling there
He’s in the $1 k weds
At 60 it’s a struggle joint as in hip n knee joint wise to sit there that long

Went to Ellis island my mate in Tenerife bends my ear about how he went there ten years ago n how marvellous it was
Well it’s changed it’s now the grubbiest shithole I’ve ever been it
Indoor ac scent is sweaty wellies not vanilla like the Venetian
The clientele are dubious
But it was busy
We ate there fish n chips for me Caesars salad plus chicken for Denise n this is the best bit $26 bill !
Came Back tonthe encore played the $200 satellite for today’s 1a 1100 buy in 185 runners made 28 seats n 290$
I was card dead just for a change
So it’s pool day today
Planning on seeing opium the show at the Cosmo -same director as absinthe

Firstly we would to say thank you
We enjoyed our stay but had to cut it short a bit as my mum was taken ill !
Everyone we met was so friendly and welcoming .literally everyone 10/10 scored !

Our room was nice but not as well laid out as the one we had at the Wynn last year 8/10 scored !

My only complaint would be about the food
On arrival our room was not ready until 1930
So after unpacking we felt tired
So we ordered chicken strips French fries sweet potato fries and onion rings - not exactly healthy I know buy hey ho
The server turned up with chicken wings
My Mrs the rather lovely Denise hates wings and other bone on type meat as in her words she feels like a dog chewing a bone !
We pointed this out to the server and she offered to change them but we didn’t want to wait another 40 minutes !

So she ate none of them .

I on the other hand like wings so I got to eat them .
The fries and onion rings were lukewarm at best so we only ate a few !

I understand the foods got to get upstairs etc but it wasn’t really warm enough! 2/10 scored

Our dinner as part of our dinner n show package was at Allegra
My meatballs were tasty but once again only Luke warm
Denise’s starter was fine
My chicken parmigiana looked like vomit on a plate with spaghetti next to it 5/10 scored

There you go
Sorry to write a bit negative but you need to know to improve

On the whole our stay was enjoyable though thank you
Tony and Denise

As it was Denise’s birthday no way was I going to complain and ruin her night so i ate up n shut up !

The encores reply First off I want to say thank you for choosing to stay with us for this very special occasion. We realize that you can do so many different things for something as special as your wife’s birthday, so we appreciate you selecting us. Also, thank you for your detailed feedback. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, though a few things did not meet your expectations.

We have addressed these things with our In Room Dining team and with our team over at Allegro, as we do wish to improve. I do realize that a few mistakes were made, most notably the chicken wings, so I do apologize about that. I know how it feels after a long day of travel, so again I apologize on behalf of In Room Dining for the shortfall.

Wishing you a wonderful Summer season, and please do not hesitate to reach out to me personally when you are planning your next trip to Las Vegas. We hope to welcome you again in the future.

I am out of the 10k HORSE. I ended again on the wrong side of the cards. Like 68542 v/s 68532 in razz etc. The last hand was brutal. Texas and I'm on the button with Jd 9d and raise. Flop T87 so I flopped the nuts and the other guy had 69 for button straight and in went all money. Do the not cap when you are headsup? Anyhow he ended up with a rivered straight flush. That really felt in my gut... :( :cry:

Might try the 1000 PLO tomorrow (only one re-entry).

One friend ended 23rd in the 600 PLO and another 12th in the 8-game. I have to be glad for them instead.

That’s a typical yank reply “we apologise” “we apologise “ blah blah. Might as well finish it off with “now fuck off we’re busy”

I had to go to LA on business a few years back. It was for an exhibition. I booked and paid three months in advance but after a twelve hour flight and almost 18 hours total travelling I arrived at the hotel (5 star) to say they were full and I had been shipped 40 miles down the road. That meant an 80 mile round trip every day for 5 days. Had to be on the stand by 8am each day until 7pm.

Kicked off “we apologise” fair enough but how can this happen? “We apologise” yeah but etc etc. After going round in circles for ages I asked to speak to the manager. “We apologise” for twenty minutes. Email after we got back “we apologise” no explanation at all just bullshit lip service!!

Tony the chart house in the nugget do lovely cocktails (happy hour between 4pm and 6pm) only about $5 to $7 each, we pop in most days when we are there.they also do lovely snacks .
Breakfast, the californian is good (nothing fancy) but great value,its always busy,but you get a table no prob. They also do a great white tuna sandwich.
T.bone steak dinner costs about $15.
Buffet best value is main street buffet costs about $12 and they have a great selection, (its been voted best downtown value for money buffet,a couple of times in the last few years)
If you get fed up with the pool being to busy at the nugget,the downtown grand has pool on top of the hotel,costs $5 for non residents,plenty of space and and drinks a fraction of the cost you pay at nugget pool.
If you like ribs and chicken binnions do them in the bar at the back,we got one ribs and chicken order beteen 2 ,couldnt eat one each,they give you that much.

Fk me I’m spending more time on me I pad than playing poker writin* these up!
What a night last night
We had a right result
Went n unpacked about 4 pm lay on the bed by 5 pm scratching me balls 🎱
Fell asleep
Woke at 1130
Right old racket going on outside in Fremont st
A u2 concert
Or some twat who thought he was bono
Mrs was snoring gently
Shall we go go downstairs I enquired
No no not muff diving
Down to the casino
Next thing I know it’s 3 am
Bono’s gone n it’s quiet
Shall we go down I enquire ?
Snore grunt grunt
Next thing it’s 730 am
One night in Vegas we never spent a dime
Now that is a result and we are more on Vegas time then ever
Weds am coffee at Starbucks
$5 pool admission at the downtown grand means it’s quieter up there
It hits 98 degrees by 11 am according to binions date temperature
Lovely of lunch pitta n hunnus for Denise chicken giblets n chips for me coleslaw on the side
A bucket -6 tins of barefoot ballsdangle wine
Angry orchard cider n we are cooking on gas
By 230/3 pm it’s roasting
So we make our way to the Fremont for $2 coronas now gone up to $3 couple vodka n cokes
It’s shower n nap time
With an alarm set for 7 pm
A steak at binions is the plan
Then some casino donk age

Paul Fowler reports ridic queues at the Rio in the run up to the seniors which I’m swerving
Super seniors will be my last foray to the Rio
It’s just too busy n I hate it

Attempts to win the trumping contest led me to eat a few prunes from California but they leave a poo 💩 like mark on the bed sheets !
So I will have to bribe the maid tomorrow
