Getting Ready for Las Vegas
My summer 2009 trip to Las Vegas should be interesting. It will be my first trip to the new Indianapolis Airport. Long term parking is still cheap, thank goodness. I'll be leaving June 18 and returning June 24.
I will be staying at the Imperial Palace. Granted, it is a far cry from some of the most recent places I've stayed (Bellagio, Encore, Wynn), but it is okay when one spends little time in that casino or in the room. Can't beat the location -- right in the middle of poker country on the strip.
Where will I hang out? Ballys has been my "home" poker room for some time. The vibe is great and the players tend to be pretty poor -- and friendly. MGM Grand is usually my second choice if I need a change of pace. Maybe I'll even play at the IP -- who knows?
I plan to play the Seniors WSOP event, maybe one at Binions. I'll be staying for six nights, so there is plenty of time.
I'll be playing in the Seniors tournament with Memphis MOJO, so I imagine that I will get to meet him. I also hope to meet some other short-term visiting bloggers -- maybe bayne, CMitch, Shabazz Jenkins, and/or Tuscaloosa Johnny. I also hope to connect with some of the people anchored in Las Vegas for most of the WSOP.
What do I hope to accomplish? Well, the bar has been set high for bloggers. LJ just took 10th place in a WSOP H.O.R.S.E. event. sprstoner took third in Event # 13, and CK took 39th place in an event. As someone said, perhaps this is the Year of the Blogger.
My goals:
1) Cash in my WSOP event
2) Make a decent profit at the cash tables
3) Meet as many bloggers as possible
4) Get someone with a car to take me to In-N-Out Burger -- I need to try one!
Less than two days until I leave. I can't wait.
btw: No -- I do not really wear a hoodie and sunglasses at the poker table!
