Leaving for Las Vegas

Leg one of my first 2012 Las Vegas trip begins tonight as I drive up to the Chicago suburbs to my mom's house. My flight leaves mid-morning on Sunday.

Because Las Vegas is still one of the last meccas to not make free wi-fi readily available, I will leave my laptop at home and get by with my old school cell phone. However, I will send out a few tweets if there is anything worth mentioning. With a plan of playing poker during a Super Bowl promotion, possible meet ups with fellow bloggers and poker players grrouchie, Tony Bigcharles, and possibly others, and who knows what (it is Las Vegas, of course), there is always the chance for a good story or two.

Good luck in Vegas!

Yeah, lack of free wi-fi sucks. If you're staying at a place with a resort fee, they usually cover the wi-fi with that outrageous charge. Or you can take your laptop to the MGM poker room for free wi-fi. Convenient, I know.

What room are you watching the Super Bowl at? What's the promo? Suddenly I'm jealous that I'm not in Vegas for the big game. But I assume the room rates are very high for this weekend.

A dealer last year told me that poker is almost impossible to play during the have people "playing" there just to watch the game and they aren't paying any attention to the cards. The action is supposed to be very slow....but if they are not paying attention, that may be a good thing for you!

I was there for the Pitt-Seattle superbowl a few years ago. It was crazy. Cab lines were crazy and it was impossible to catch the free shuttles. Table mins were $25 all weekend and sportsbooks were full by 10am on sunday. Hope you have better luck than I did that year. Good Luck and Have Fun!
