Chicago Poker Classic
It seems like forever since I've played some live poker. So ... time for me to demonstrate my donkey skills at the Chicago Poker Classic. I plan on playing in the March 2 event.

The Classic is being held at the Horseshoe Hammond, which is a pretty nice play to play. The poker room itself is okay, but the tournament will be played in The Venue -- the nice concert hall at the casino. I recently played there in a WSOP circuit event. There should be a lot of room and a large donkelicious crowd.

Viva Las Vegas

In a few more days I should have details finalized, but I plan to be in Las Vegas for a professional conference in April. Therefore, I should be able to play in the 2010 Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza II and/or the WSOP Circuit Event at Caesars Palace. Not a bad choice!

Waiting for New Laws on Universal Teeth and Dog Care

Life is never dull around the lightning household. There always seems to be some type of medical issues to keep us on our feet -- and cost me money. Latest entries in the "take my poker bankroll away" catagory:

1) Youngest daughter will need braces. Cha-ching. That is three for three. The teeth come from my wife's side of the family, me thinks.

2) Family dog has highly elevated enzyme levels in her liver. Ultrasound is scheduled for Tuesday. Cha-ching. Cancer? Other problems with need for additional testing or treatment? Cha-ching, cha-ching.

In Other Family News ...

My wife's latest employment interview went well. We are waiting for her to be called for a second interview. Our hopes are high.

We are waiting to hear about academic scholarship decisions for my oldest daughter, who hopes to attend Texas A&M this fall. I guess that I am just a Nervous Nelly, but I will feel much better once her scholarship(s) and her tuition costs are confirmed. I hope everything works out, but I have just had this feeling of inpending disaster...

Good luck at Caesar's if you play in it - if you do I might see you as I might be out there for it as well.
