Pokering Out West Next Week

Flights on a MAX8 anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

I am ready to take off on some spring vacation time this weekend. I will be heading out to Seattle on Saturday to visit my son. Unfortunately, my flight out -- a choice morning direct flight -- was scheduled to be on a MAX8 plane on Southwest. The direct flight was eventually canceled and instead my wife and I got a flight that stops for a couple of hours in ... LAS VEGAS ... before finishing up in Seattle. Unfortunately, we will lose most of Saturday with the change. I was hoping to get in some poker time at Fortune Casino outside Seattle, but the loss of weekend time might make that difficult.

On Tuesday, we will be traveling to visit family and friends in the Phoenix Area. I will be going to a Giants at Cubs spring training game on Thursday, and before the trip back home on the weekend, I will surely get in some poker time at Talking Stick Resort and possibly Wild Horse Pass Casino.

I have continued to track my poker winnings/losses and am still making a profit for 2019. Seeing as how the Stick has a reputation for soft games -- and I can't disagree with what I have seen at the lower spread limits -- I hope to add to the lightning sockroll next week.

Also, while out in the greater Phoenix area, my wife and I will be looking at rental properties for a potential move there in late 2020 or in 2021. I have lived my entire life in Illinois with roughly the first third up in the southwest Chicago suburbs and the last two thirds in central Illinois. The prospect of moving to a different state far away with different challenges is both scary and exciting.

I will tweet if I am able to play at Fortune Casino on Sunday and will probably throw out a few tweets when playing poker in Phoenix. If you are in the area, stop by and say hello!

Thanks for reading!

I feel your pain about a short layover in Vegas. A couple of years ago I’d had a trip booked from London into Vegas but my plans got changed at the last minute so I ended up landing early evening then having to catch another flight about 8am the next day to head over to New York - couldn’t even head out for a few beers either as I had to be sensible for work.

I've been pretty lucky with flights (knock knock on wood).

Don't forget that my biggest slot win in the US was at the Vegas airport. Red White and Blue $1. Find one and martingale if you have to!

I am flying Southwest later this month and I was also nervous about it being MAX8. But now that they have been grounded, it should be a smooth trip. Enjoy your trip and poker!
