Vegas on Thursday and Tomorrow

Drove to Vegas Thursday to drop off my daughter at the airport. She flew to Sacramento to stay with her Aunt Corrie for 4 days. I stayed in Vegas until Iknew my sister had her and played a little 3/6/9 HE at Sunset Station. Always nice to be recognized by dealers and the floor when I visit a casino that I haven't been too in awhile. Anyways, didn't do TOO bad, at least I only lost $25 instead of my full buy in. LOL

My normal casino in Vegas is The Plaza, and no matter whether I go 25 times a year, or 3 times, they always remember me. (Of course, to be fair, if you've met me before, I'm pretty hard to forget!!)

I will be going back tomorrow (Sunday) to pick her up in the evening, I plan on going a few hours early and playing some more live before her flight lands.

I miss playing live in the worst way. I miss my regular haunts in Laughlin. I missed the WSOP Rio event and I am going to miss The Plaza WPC, and I'm bumming. sigh. Online just doesn't have what I love, the interaction, the people, the socializing. I can only hope and dream to win my buyin into ANY WSOP event, so that I can go again, even if for just one more weekend.

I feel alone and isolated when playing online and that might be why I'm so active, or try to be, in my forums, to simply interact with other poker players. I am a VERY social person, and this online only playing drives me insane, maybe even depresses me a little.

You can call or IM me anytime. I'm Fzdyer almost everywhere (AIM, MSN, Yahoo).

Did Ben ever call you back about the WPC? He never bothered to return my phone call, and Dan says the same. I think this thing is gonna bomb :(

Nope, and to be honest, I never tried to contact him again. The well knowns on RGP are pretty much already marking it as a bomb. But still...your going, and I'm jealous. I want to go, even if it is a bomb. I really have cabin fever today. How many damn naps can I take??????

Hey, you sort of convinced me to go out to the Plaza for the WPC (at least the early events), so what's this talk about it bombing? Does that mean they'd outright cancel the events? Or do you mean they won't be well attended? Any idea where I can find out the latest information as it develops?

I'm still a little new to the B&M tourney scene, can you enlighten me as to why this would bomb? This event is advertised in all the journals, wouldn't that attract a few people?

I think Oliver Tse said it best on RGP..but it's all about TV. The Plaza is not being televised, plus it hasn't been advertised the way it should be. I believe there may also be other tourneys going on at the same time that ARE televised. I think you should still go, if anything you'll get some B&M experience. I will not be attending as planned, but that's due to the pregnancy that popped up. LOL
