Vegas Trip Report

I had made a deal with Bill that I would go to Vegas this past weekend on Saturday morning, but stay home Friday night and go out to dinner and a few drinks with our best friends, the Van Pelts. On the way to dinner, he graciously offered me the opportunity to drive to Vegas that night after dinner, if I didn't drink. So that's what I did! We got home around 9:00pm and I was on the road by 9:30. Got into Vegas around 11pm and I've been noticing lately that it really only takes 1 1/2 hours to get to Vegas when a few years ago it took 2 years. Interesting because I never went above 85mph.

So when I got into Vegas I jumped into the normal late night tourneys, but did nothing worth mentioning. On Saturday, I slept in and then hung out with Fellknight watching him donk off his chips at the Binions tournament, this was, of course, after I had donked off my own chips, LOL. I also ran into Eric Rosenberg, who it turns out is on the same flight that I'm on and will be on the WPS II cruise ship as well. NICE. I like that guy, cool peeps.

We then headed over to Boulder Station and as posted on RGP: (copy and paste people, copy and paste.)

Boulder Station in Vegas. Gold. Mine.

I have stated before that the $4/$8 Omaha Hi game (with a 1/2 kill) at the
Boulder Station in Vegas is the absolute BEST game in town. Others have agreed
with me.

I went to Vegas this weekend to attempt to bribe my way into the Binion's TOC,
Fellknight had won his seat previously so he was there along with a bunch of
other Binion's regulars, although I didn't see VeeRob there this month. Anywho,
after being denied (NO clout whatsoever, I guess) I proceeded to drag Fell over
to Boulder Station to play the Omaha game, which I had told him about before.

Keeping in mind, for those that have heard me say this before, I SUCK at cash
games. I try not to play them too often, but sometimes it just can't be helped.
So, after busting out of the 8pm Saturday tourney at Binions rather early, I
hung around the 2/4 game until Fell was done and then we headed over to the
Omaha game.

I bought in for a rack ($100) and proceeded to donk it all off in 10 mins. I
then bought another rack and was done with that one in about 20 mins. I then
called for a 3rd rack, and at that time a seat opened up at Fell's table, so I
moved over there and WOW, what a difference a table change makes.

I proceeded to go on a rush that I have never, EVER, experienced in MY LIFE.
Anything I had, was good. Top 2 pair? Good. Straight with the board paired?
Good. Oh, and let's not forget the quad Aces, those are good too. I think that's
the hand that started my rush. Almost every hand was capped on every street, the
pots were about $200-$300 each, it was insane, but since I was winning, it was a
fun insane.

Cashed out 212.5 BB 3 hours later, that's $1700 from a 4/8 game. Gotta love it,
and this is from a player who admits to being a total and complete FISH at the
cash games.

What a night. : ).

(End of cut and paste)

Sunday morning I met Fell at Binions and played the 10am while he played the TOC. He ended up busting out soon enough to be able to buy into the 10am tourney as well, and I'm proud to say we both made the final table. I ended up busting out in 5th place when my 9,9 couldn't win the race against A,J and Fell ended up in 3rd place when his K,5 or K,8 suited ran into A,A after the A,A limped and never raised and the K came on the turn. What can you do? I never put the guy on a big hand either. Fucking limpers. LOL

Anywho, that's about it, ran to Fry's Electronic to get some more RAM and now I'm home until Thursday evening when Cherissa and I leave for Vegas yet again. I then leave from Vegas on Saturday night to fly to Orlando, FL and hop on the cruise ship on Sunday. I know, I know, I've mentioned this all before, I feel like I'm rambling now, so I'll just stop.

I ALWAYS end up at Boulder station and/or Sams Town. Both poker rooms are great for playing the dumb lost British tourist in.

Oh and before anyone else says it two out of three are probably right.

Wow 1700$ in 3 hours in a 4/8 Cash Game is quite nice. More than I ever made, and I used to sit there at the Bike/Commerce/Hustler 3-4 days a week for 6 months playing almost nothing but 4/8... Nice one Tanya. : )

TY, never done that before and if I ever do do it again, it would be at the same game at the same casino, it's just off the hook there.
