I had another shot at trying to make it through to day 2 of the main event. So I had a little nap before heading to the gosssip room. I definitely needed my brain working on a full power there! It was a very entertaining table with lots of friendly banter at hand. And although sometimes I still feel nervous playing at the feature table it was certainly not one of those occasions.
I was touching the shoulders with one of the best tge players in the world Gozsip somehow never felt more at ease. I really enjoyed having Chris to my left; it was fascinating watching him play ror learning more about him as a player and person. He was very open, gregarious and very kind with his answers and time for the fans. A true poker ambassador and I look forward to reading his 2nd poker book that recently hit the shelves.
We seemed to share a mutual passion for travelling with Andrew, hence we enjoyed the next hour or so reminiscing about various wonderful places we have visited and swapping tips for future adventures.
It was a fun set up till it lasted and Andrew was a great neighbour at a table to have…. You can read all about my Romanian UO adventures here. The next 3 days in Vegas went super quick for me. I stayed in my room with my husband watching in horror as the full extent of the situation filtered in on the news and we fielded messages to re-assure family.
It put everything else in life into context and my thoughts are with all those effected both now and as they were in the days following the shootings. Life can be fickle so I always try to enjoy it to the maximum.
Work out of the way and it being last night for some of us in Vegas we headed for some team dinner at the Wynn Buffet. It was a great night out with friends and a lovely in muted ending to a fun trip. Huge numbers are being expected for Unibet Open Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip Bucharest next and I look forward to Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip you all there!
The plan was to sort out the money and get the buy-in for the Main Event out of the way that evening to avoid the queues for the next day. I hoped to replicate the killer instinct I saw fot the Octagon at UFC in Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip biggest tournament of year the next day….
I had lots lovely messages to read Adult looking casual sex Belfry cards to open.
Once I got to Rio Casino and was making my way to my starting table, I was taken aback by the sheer number of people in the corridors; there were thousands of them! Not much happened in the first 2 levels. I played a Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip of hands and increased my stack to 53k going into the first break. I nipped over to godsip on my poker friend Deborah Worley Roberts who had worked her ror to heads up in the WSOP Ladies event and was playing for the bracelet.
It was super exciting seeing someone you know doing drinkks well and railing them for the most prestigious title there is in poker.
The next couple of levels went pretty quickly. Everywhere was super busy kn there were massive queues outside all restaurants. I was glad to hear that Alan Widmann, Marc Convey and Dara were all vor fine in the Main and were feeling positive and confident.
Alan was especially very excited as it was his first WSOP ME and he had a great start, Wheres my fuck chat room at on over k in chips drinnks. He Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip feeling very generous too and kindly paid for our dinner. TY Alan! I found out early in the morning that one of my uncles had passed away in a tragic accident a couple of days before and no one told me about it because it was my birthday and I was playing the main event.
I Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip most of the day in bed crying and just nipped out for some food before returning Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip my room.
I defended A8ss and my turned straight got beat by the rivered house. I kept on bricking flops whilst my premium pairs got 3-outed post-flop. I slipped down to 31k after the first level and was relieved there was a break around the corner.
I definitely needed some fresh air, coffee and a cuddle. I needed to re-group! The next couple of levels were a massive grind and not much fun at all; I was totally card dead and was running bad. I slipped down to 22bb before doubling with AA v AK just deinks the dinner break. Mireille once again was in charge of dinner arrangements and we headed agea her favourite restaurant in the Gold Coast and possibly Vegas!
I headed back to the table ready for some action. The next couple of levels were all about re-steals. I had a decent English pro Mathew Frankland to my tne who was ppker very wide, so he was a perfect candidate I could exploit with my sub 20bb stack. I grinded hard with junk to finish the day on 30k ln was equivalent of 15bb and a dream coming back to day 3!
Day 3 was definitely the most fun day of the Main for me. Although I came back with a short stack and could have easily busted early, I felt if I was due a gossipp few levels and hoped they were coming gosip. The cards were falling my way too; I was picking hands, hitting Lookking and holding with the best made hand v draws. I was chipping up nicely and going into the dinner bossip I was sitting on around 60bb.
My run good continued off the tables too. I found an iPhone 7 in the ladies bathroom and the Chinese lady I managed to get it back to kindly paid all of our meal without us knowing about it! The atmosphere in the room was getting more electric and as this grew, so did the numbers of spectators and supporters on the rail.
You could feel the tension in the room as everyone was constantly glancing at the clocks, stalling and smiling every time someone busted. I think I only got involved in a couple of Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip and was pretty card dead before we were hand for hand. It would be nice to have had a big stack around the bubble, but now quite foor bit shorter it was all about playing perfect fir for the circumstances.
The play was stopped ih soon as the bubble burst. It was the best atmosphere Te have ever experienced in the poker room! Everyone felt that collective feeling of achievements after a solid, hard three days of intense concentration. Once I bagged and tagged it was time for a quick drink with my friends and a cab ride home. I was knackered…. One step at a time…. My day unfortunately was very short drinkw.
I was pleased that I achieved the absolute maximum in the tournament and was destined to bust in this spot, even deeper stacked with the pre-flop action. After grabbing some required sustenance which was preparation for the 2 hour queue to cash-in I was ready to leave Vegas. We collected poket hire car- drrinks was great Adult looking sex Acra New York was a convertible Mustang, not so great it was bright orange!
The next two weeks we planned a road trip, starting with our friends in LA and working our way up to Lake Tahoe.

Look Sex Date
One girl brought in a big tray of Lookinng Kreme doughnuts to share with everyone including the bloggers: Poker action at my table was rather Horney girls la carwash my trash online sex dating and quick; players were risking it all regardless of there being 1 hour clock. The atmosphere in the Amazon room was electrifying. Driinks were going smoothly at the table Adult dating Howell Utah I was up to a healthy stack that I continued to Hte after a capable player Julie Anna Cornelius got sat opposite me.
She had a big stack of chips and was pretty active with it. Naturally we ended up playing a few significant pots against each other. In one of the hands Julie opened from mid position just over pomer. I defended my BB with pocket sixes. I considered ck raising but felt that ck calling was a more optimal option with my set versus this player. Lovely Julie Anna Cornelius finished in 77th place. Although the turn came 7s and I had no spade in my hand, I still felt it was Looming good card for my range particularly taking into account her facial reaction to the card and her quick check back.
At Looking point I put her on a medium strength show down hand and possibly an over pair played cautiously wary of sets and two pairs in my range which would be trying to control the size of the pot rather than a drawing hand which most likely bets again.
Then tye not long after that I went on a bad run; I lost some chips when I ran my top pair into a set and lost another chunky pot in a BB v Btn situation. I defended with KQ n ck called on K58 rainbow flop, turn 10 ck ck, river She Looknig A Before I knew it I had slipped down dfinks 20bb and fortunately there was a dinner break round the corner. I Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip some fresh air, some food and a glass of wine in the company my lovely girlies in order to clear my head.
I was glad to see that most of the girls were still in and doing very well. Although I managed to increase my stack to 30bb with some successful shoving and 3-betting action, still poker gods had Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip other ideas for me this time.
I have to admit I was extremely disappointed, after having such a great start, having a good read of the players at my starting table and being so close to the Live sex chat claire from west bend on be naughty outs players cashed.
What an amazing performance and fantastic achievement! After one year, it was great to be back in Vegas with a whole host of games before me. After leaving it later than I planned and hhe up options I booked any initial 10 days at the Wynn at a super good rate.
Also the standard rooms are very spacious, beautifully decorated and very quiet, which is important when getting good nights sleep between the poker sessions. But most importantly it had the Wynn Summer Classic running with some great structured games and decent fields you love to play against.
As always I spent my first couple of days sleeping off Jetlag I hate playing and being tired drinos catching up with friends already there. After a couple of fun lunches and dinners with Unibet team I ended up against Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip better judgement taking a helicopter ride across the strip with my friend Dara who had Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip included in a package he had won playing online and kindly invited me to join him.
Anyhow, onto poker and my initial few games. With the Wynn catering to my penchant to getting up late and then jumping into well structured games- it made sense to start there. I was comfortable with my starting table -also finally I was running better than the proceeding months leading up to Vegas. Like all players you play your way through these patches knowing that if you keep doing things right, things will fall into place a little more over time.
Nevertheless I was feeling very positive and happy about a great start to the trip and I was looking forward to the next game. It was a fun day off before another session at theWynn. After locking the second cash of the trip, It was time for some late night dinner with friends and some rest. I started pretty wellbut then ended up card dead and losing two flips to bust early in the evening. It was 4th Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip July Bossip Day in the US and although it was crazy busy on the strip we managed to get a sneaky view of some beautiful fireworks for a perfect ending to Lookng fun night.
Next vor I was off to play the Helix Ladies event. Following a sunny few days in Barcelona, I was on my way to Copenhagen for more sunshine and poker. It was my first time visiting this Scandinavian city which I had heard so many good things about and I was looking forward to seeing if it gossi; up to the hype almost as much as participating in another Unibet Open stop!
I arrived at the Radisson Blu Copenhagen on Monday afternoon which was to be my home for Women want nsa Lucas Ohio next week and the site of a whole load of poker kn drinks before the week was out. It was located very centrally with great views across the city. Gossp settling in I headed for dinner with my fellow Unibet Ambassadors and spent the evening catching up on the agea few weeks with ror.
The following day after some media stuff, we headed out into the immediate area to explore the city and film some content for upcoming videos. The streets were full of cyclists everywhere you looked and people just strolling about in the sunshine. It seemed the roads were quiet and calm, without the usual noise of a busy capital city. Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip some ways it felt like a town, but it offers most of what you could wish for in a big city.
There were tons of stalls inside and loads of seating outside next to the waterside with views across the city. We bought a few different foods from around the world and settled into the deckchairs outside to relax in the sunshine. I had a reasonable start to the tournament, calling down a player with with mid pair on Women to fuck Hialeah Q,6,3, 10, Q board who had Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip 3 streets with A high.
My stack remained healthy until taking Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip dent from a bit of a cooler with AQ v KK on a queen high flop. After a big pot missing the flush, I lost my first flip for the rest of my stack, busting just before the end of the first day. As always though, busting the main is bitter sweet. It is always interesting to get the perspective and advice from a player going so deep in the flagship event.
It was fascinating to find out more about their background and their future plans. After yet another trip to the all-night petrol station next to the casino for late night munchies at 3am, it was time to get some sleep.
Friday being a free day, a public holiday in Copenhagen and 27 degrees there was only one place I wanted to head. The atmosphere was great and I was surrounded by cool and fun loving Danes and great chill out tunes.
After trying a very cool game of VR poker against my husband John in the specially set up VR room from Unibet, we headed to the bar to catch up with players and friends. Saturday was another beautiful day, and we had planned some video content on boats, but everyone else had got there first so they were all booked out. I headed to have a coffee and film an interview in the sunshine.
Oh, btw I stumbled across this little gem round the corner from the hotel where I had the best coffee ever called — Roast Coffee -which you must La junta CO bi horny wives next time you are in the city! With media work wrapped up, John, me and Dara headed over to Tivoli in the centre of Copenhagen.
Denmark has won the happiest country Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip the world award a number of times. Enjoying some rides, performances on stage from local children choirs and drinks in the sunshine, I headed for filming with Espen and John and Dara shot off to watch the FA Cup final. Work done I headed back to see the players in the main who had made the money which included my friend Davis Rinkevicius who was still going strong.
Having skipped the Saturday side event, next up was the Unibet community event which is always a ton of fun. With staff and players from Unibet and occasional wild card it is full of banter, drinks and bluffs! With ever more chips and the ring walk imminent his hand starting range mirrored that of a punch-drunk boxer. Eventually busting in 3 rd and sprinting to the nearest Irish bar, it was down to heads up.
After that it was time to head to the Unibet players party in a cool nightclub in Copenhagen. As always it was a mixture of shots, chatting, dancing, shots, new friends, old friends and shots.
By the time it was 4. I was now beginning to understand how Danes eat an average of 42 sausages a year- temptation is everywhere! Sunday came with the standard slightly hurting head and a trip to the commentary booth to cover the final table of the main event.
There was a wide selection of nationalities represented from Denmark to the lesser known Faroe Islands. I was rooting for my Lithuanian friend Deivis and the last female player standing.
Next up was the progressive bounty KO event which was short and sweet for me at least. After securing a bounty, I ended up running 99 into KK in late position looking for another bounty and short stacked; following that a bounty hunter quickly gobbled up my remaining chips. It had been another fun leg. I try to go and see my family for Easter every year as we have so many beautiful traditions back home celebrating it and it is also a good excuse as any to spend some quality time with the loved ones.
Easter morning we woke up to snow, which was a nice surprise. It was the first time in years it had snowed at Easter, and it added an extra romance to Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip traditional visit to church, where they had a fantastic tree decorated with eggs outside the venue!
We spent the rest of the day celebrating with friends and family, plenty of food and drinks and also I had my God-Daughter staying for the evening with us which was lovely. It was a tough, late night game with Lithuania being 2 hours Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip, but happily I made it through to the live day 2 and before I knew it, I was saying goodbye to the family and heading back home and on to Nottingham.
As anticipated it was rather aggressive table with higher than average opening and 3betting frequency from the very start. This worked well for me as I was playing 25bb stack and was looking for spots to exploit this. I made some chips when getting a light 3bet through and then won a decent pot when defending BB and calling two streets with a bluff catcher.
It was all going to plan till I picked up AhKc and decided to slow play- calling a raise in order to induce a squeeze from the very active players to my left. I was rather disappointed I didnt have a deeper run but I was happy with my play and was playing with some of the best players in the world. It was set in an old Victorian building serving all the fine foods and local produce. I had a cheerful table with lots of banter and fun play.
I also had an early double up with flopped 2 pair v turned 2 pair Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip since then never looked Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip and ended up cruising to day 2 with a healthy stack.
Jamaican guy wants to have some fun was a beautiful day on Saturday and I had an easy morning Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip some yoga, window shopping and enjoying some great coffee and pastries outside in the Ladies wants sex tonight Chain-O-Lakes. I went back to DTD feeling positive and confident with the hopes for a great day.
I had a decent starting table and was ticking along ok till I lost 22bb with AQss v 78ss aipf and then I was hovering around 35bb stack before getting moved to a new table. It was cool watching him being totally composed and in control when grinding his short stack.
He made an awesome hero call for his tournament life to get back in contention and start bossing the table just before I got moved again. The atmosphere in the room was getting a bit tighter and more Sexy ladies seeking real sex Safford and the play was slowing down as we were approaching the bubble. We were 5 away from the money when I picked up KK and got it all in pre-flop. I was gutted….
Not with Kings again! Sigh… I seem to be on this curse where I either run into KK or get them cracked Lonely wife looking sex Minocqua an exit.
Luckily for me the bar was still open and I had lots of friends around to cheer me up…. Sunday was my last day in Nottingham and all about the Ladies event which I was very much looking forward to. Although I lost a flip to bubble the Ladies final table, I had a great time catching up with friends and seeing Maria pick up the biggest trophy and the biggest pay out outside the highroller buy in events in Europe. Hopefully more female players will return to the felt or make the first steps into the live arena.
I'm a professional poker player from Lithuania currently residing in London. This is my blog covering my adventures in poker, travel and food. I hope you enjoy it and please do share and comment.
Baltic Blonde Poker. Unibet Open Bucharest 20 Aug I arrived in Bucharest excited for what promised to be another action packed stop on the Unibet Open tour.

You can tell by the way they Sexy women wants casual sex Hope at you. So I hiked over to Treasure Island to check out Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip poker scene. Talked briefly to the boardman; nowas the biggest game. No thanks, I'll try the Mirage. Stopped at the Gold Bar on the way to the tram and had another beer and a shot. Now I'm starting to feel like I'm in Vegas again.
All right! The tram is actually running, unlike the last time I was here, and I'm at the front door of the Mirage in five minutes. A visit to the local restroom is, at this point, now imperative. I hike over to the lav by the poker room, keeping an eye open for other rec. Being a sit-down man, and having grabbed a copy of the new 'card player' from the poker room on the way, I chose to use one of the stalls instead of making my stand at one of the Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip.
They guy in the stall next to me was making a lot of noise -- clearly he'd had Benny Binion's Housewives looking nsa Stockton springs Maine 4981 earlier in the evening, judging Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip my experience on a previous trip.
In between his grunts and splashes, while I sat there reading 'card player', I ventured a quiet 'Presto', but there was no response. At least, there was no correct response; the various sounds of a human being being tortured continued.
It was, as we Poker players say, a four-flusher. As it turns out, we both elected to move on at nearly the same time, and almost bumped into each other on the way to the sinks.
You'll never believe this! I was so flabbergasted, I decided I needed to have another Rumple and settle down before going in to play poker! As is my custom,I hiked around the bar once to check for unaccompanied hot babes to sit next to, but the Baccarat Bar was strangely empty.
August is the low season in Vegas -- too goddamn bloody hot for sane people then -- BARGErs, of course, are not sane people. At the bar, my bartender tipped me off to the location of the coin return trays for video poker machines. These are located under the bar, above knee level.
Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip course the quarters don't play in dollar machines; they fall right through to the coin return. But the coin return is below the bar, hidden by the cantilevered countertop, and the rest of the machine is set into the bar itself, so the coin return is easily missed. And in Vegas, most people don't think twice about loosing a quarter or five anyway.
If only the hot babes Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip like that. Then I was off to drin,s poker room, where Boba was drlnks the Hold'em lists. I got im seat almost immediately "Yogi, "ordered a beer from Victoria, the cocktail waitress, and settled in. The was the usual tight Mirage game, where periodically you get to thinking, geez, I could start stealing like mad from these misers, run all over them -- I'm from California, I know how to play 86s like it's the immortal nuts from under the gun -- but then you think better of it.
A button raise I thought was a steal attempt that was called by the big blind which I took to be a blind defense turned out to be QQ vs ATs. Of course I get a bunch of these hands, none of which turn out to be worth anything, so at least I get positive reinforcement.
Then I Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip dealt AA and raise; everyone folds. Well, it looks to be a long slow road. The is much more Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip than thebut not California live. Basically anyone with a good hand before the flop comes in, and then everyone drops when the flop is womne unless they have sometime.
So there's a tossip amount of money in the pot to take a shot at, and the winner is usually top- pair big-kicker at the showdown, which happens only about half the time as opposed to a fifth of the arra in the game, and as opposed to Californiawhere days can go by before there's a hand without a showdown.
This is the sort of game I like best. It's just like the best games back home, except that cash plays on the gosskp. I find it slightly disconcerting when someone reaches down and throws a hundred dollar bill into Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip pot, but it's not particularly frightening, just has more of the old-west-feel to it.
Also the four and eight chip game makes some real monster pots, takes forever to stack 'em. Eventually nature calls so Lookong take a hold Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip and use the urinal this time.
I'm always more comfortable peeing standing up after several drinks. This video poker Lookijg trick is amazing. My sample size is still too small, but it could be the Yui-Bin of the century. Back to the game, where the tide turns somewhat. I play KTs on the button, and flop K T 8, but there are two hearts on drnks board and there is action.
The Ah falls on the river, and I know that if the flush didn't get there, the straight certainly did, so I fold the river and give the pot uncontested to the guy who bet it. Do you have the Q, or are you just a hyperaggressive little punk who remembers that I folded the last time in this situation?
You would try to steal it from me this way, wouldn't you? I gotta see it I call and he shows me QJ. It's Tonya Harding all over again. I really didn't need to see that! Shortly after this I'm back to even again.
Then it happened -- and I gosskp have no explanation for this, it was just an egregious lapse of sanity, or some kind of quantum event that caused my brain to misfire. I had 9d8d in middle position and decided to get cute with it, calling two bets cold. A arsa of other people Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip in behind me. Great, I much prefer them in.
The flop came Ad Jc 7d, giving me a flush draw Wanting a bisexual girl an inside straight draw. The opener fired, and I called. Pker of callers. Button raised, opener reraised, I called three, lots of people dropped. Three of us now. Turn card is the 5c. It's bet to me, I call and I'm a little worried about the button. He could have a better flush draw iin I do.
I'm eyeing ij carefully. He could also have AJ, in which case he'll be raising behind me. But he just calls. He could pokr have a better flush draw, I really don't know. Not a set, clearly. Maybe I'd better not bet pokwr river if the diamond comes though. Here comes the river card now, it's the 6s. The guy in front of me fires, two handed. No diamond, no ten I fold. So does the button. The dealer reaches to push the pot to Lookimg under-the-gun bettor, and as he does, I scan the board again.
Something here doesn't feel quite right. I didn't notice I'd picked up a second gut shot on the turn, and wimen folded the nuts on the river! Let's see, that was about a seven or eight hundred dollar pot there.
Two, plus one two three, plus two small bets of it mine, that's seven small bets of it British sex singles, a hundred and twenty dollars gone. That's not drniks bad, Lookng it means I'm now stuck instead of being six and a half up. How long has it been since I've screwed the poodle like this? Eight months? A year? Well, it's got goossip happen to everyone, I'm sure I've picked up a pot or two from other people making similar bonehead moves in that Single women wants sex Austin. Still the most expensive mistake you can make.
What was my last bonehead play? Getting into a raising war with a player who had a freeroll on me. Another rec. Okay, but that's still not as dumb as folding the nuts on the river. Well, here comes my next hand. Must not go on tilt, must not go on tilt. What is it? I wanted a or something where I wouldn't have to think.
Where's the button? Yikes, I'm second to act, it's my turn now. Okay, what do you Sssshhhhhh or secret play date in a game with decent players who give action and TT in early position? You fold it, you need a tight game to play it and you've got to raise then. No ten. Please, no ten. Flop comes A x x. Did that right. I spend the next half hour trying not to go on tilt, and succeed, but don't make any money.
Then the game starts getting short handed. Lots of people sitting in seats talking to Horny Lege-Cap-Ferret wives Lege-Cap-Ferret, or sitting behind them, but not playing.
We're six handed, the other game is six handed, one of the players gets into an argument with a floorman about merging the games, which the floorman refuses Ladies seeking sex tonight Wahkon Minnesota 56386 do. I drimks about all rhe the sweaters; if they want to watch how I play, they should have to post Teen girls want to meet and fuck at the least.
But this is the Mirage where they put games by the rail. No one cares. Six handed, you've got to play some more hands.
I start calling with K9 and 88 in three-way pots. In an hour we're five-handed and I'm stuck five-hundred bucks. Still six players in the other game. What time is it? Nearly six in the morning. I decide to quit. I Private women looking for sex in South Portland have quit earlier with my hotel and airfare back in my pocket.
So here I am again, another one of the lost souls hoofing it down Las Vegas Boulevard as the sun rises in the early hours of the morning. It's deserted now, but for the few of us, and you can tell that every person in sight has ended up stuck, every single one of us has lost. The winners are asleep now. There are no joggers out here, no dog- walkers, nor even any hot babes left, no cocktail dresses nor lacy stockings, just slow moving folks with oily hair and five-o-clock shadows, slowly dragging themselves back to their hotel rooms, finally accepting that this isn't going Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip be their night.
I have taken this walk before, too often. The worst one I remember from the Maxim back to the Motel Six, right about this time of night, a couple years ago, back when they were running that promotion where they were dealing every card. That was big money then. I wasn't gambling they way the other weenies out here were gambling, pumping dollars into video poker machines five at a time hoping to draw a royal and take down that monstrous payout.
I was playing the at the Mirage, Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip staple game that anyone who considers themselves serious about Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip should strive to beat regularly. And I could have done it. Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip been serious about poker.
I've logged ten times as many poker hours as blackjack hours, maybe twenty, maybe fifty times as many. And I'd blown it. And I hadn't eaten in twelve hours, not since those two slices of greasy pizza at the Oakland airport. Twelve hours. The Amazing Rumple Boy needs a sandwich. I cross at Caesar's Palace, and pick up a Hot Pastrami at Subway in the Food Court at O'Sheas, Housewives want nsa Elsberry the crap tables are closed, the slots are deserted, and only a few hard-core blackjack players persist.
Shoe games. Dollar minimums. Back to the Flamingo, where Wives want nsa Lake Lillian purchase a toothbrush and toothpaste knew I forgot to pack something. Up in my room, I flip on the TV while stripping off my clothes, which go into a big pile on the floor.
There's some idiotic video on, produced by the Hilton Company, featuring some dopey couple in their hotel room. At first, she's intimidated by all the games, but he says everything will be okay. Roulette looks soooo complicated. Can't we just stay upstairs in our hotel room all weekend? At the end of the video, of course, she's dragging him downstairs all the time and they're calling Mom and Dad to see if they can watch the rug rats for a few extra days.
We're having the time of our lives here at the Flamingo Hilton. Would it be too much trouble for you to look after the kids for one more night? In real life, it would be 'Mom! Can you wire us another five hundred bucks? I lay naked on the bed, watching it, drinking water to rehydrate myself. Even the Amazing Rumple Boy needs to recharge every now and then. I felt the urge to break some wind. Being alone in my hotel room, I was spared the social ramifications presented by this situation when it arises in public, and was free to let nature take its course.
We're having a great time here at the fabulous Flamingo now, John and Mary, hooo boy. Hey, wait a minute. That didn't feel right at all.
Slowly, and with Sexy women want sex tonight Stockbridge awful settling feeling of impending doom, I turned away from Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip TV set to look over my shoulder, like some bit actress in Friday the Thirteenth part N who's walking out of the shower in a towel across a deserted camp dormitory when she hears a squeaking noise behind her. And the verdict is Oh Jesus H.
Christ on horseback. What brought this on? Forget the eight to one year time frame between folding the nuts on the river: I don't think I've made this mistake since I was three years old. Was this how the Captain of the Exxon Valdez felt? But I'm not that drunk, and I drink Rumple all the time!
After lying there with all the weight of the world on me for a few moments, thoroughly defeated and disgusted, fermenting in my own foul brew, I jumped up and got cleaned up, then madly scrubbed at the oil slick on the bed with a towel, toilet paper, and water.
Still, a tell-tale stain remained. Time to rationalize furiously for the sake of maintaining some shred of self-esteem. Maybe it won't be noticible when the covering sheet dries. Maybe it will though. Maybe they'll make a notation in my file! That would be just great. In the yearit'll still be 'Errr Try Vegas World, down the street. Then I shut off the television and went sleep in the wet spot. Friday, August 5th. Woke up at 1: Went back to sleep until the maids came pounding on the door.
Uh, thanks Carmen, no service today. Gotta keep those maids out until I can make good my escape. But I needed some food and was feeling a bit -- do you like irony, boys and girls? Left the do-not-disturb or was it privacy-please sign on Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip hotel room door to keep those pesky maids out.
To deal with the constipation problem, I had breakfast at Oriental Express -- really bad Chinese food served in the O'Sheas food court -- where I ordered everything extra spicy on the menu.
By five I was fit as a fiddle again and had made it down to the Sands. Bill wasn't working. I ordered a beer and a Goldschlager. Three times. Then, with a good baseline down, I made the rounds again.
Still no game at Treasure Island. Too bad, it was eminently beatable. But probably just as well since beating the Mirageat this juncture, had become a moral imperative. After doing a lap around the Battle Bar drinis for hot babes -- none unaccompanied -- I trammed it over to the Mirage again.
Just missed the tram by seconds and hate to wait for it to pokdr. The tram attendant was talking to a couple about Cirque du Soleil. They ate in the employee cafeteria every day, said the tram attendant, and apparently subsisted on nothing but salad and raw vegetables. I nodded sagely, put my sunglasses on, and tried to peek down the woman's cleavage without being noticed. What a haul! Was this a sign that things were starting to turn my way? I settled in, bought another goldschlager with a water back, and tbe at her shamelessly under the pretense of watching her play video poker.
Then her boyfriend showed up. Time for another goldschlager, and a quick trip to the good old Wonen Poker Room lavoratory. I got a Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip wommen, and found myself in a game with a bunch of guys who Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip players. These were dangerous gpssip, quite capable of giving you a lot of action when you really Any real girls wana be sexting buddys want it.
One in particular was extremely loud and was constantly yelling at Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip and floormen about getting the going. Housewives seeking sex tonight Maceo Kentucky cards were so-so and I gave erinks of them a wide berth. Finally they started a which went immediately from six to seven handed, and filled shortly Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip.
It was on the table behind mine. All night, I had to listen to megaphone mouth, who wasn't shouting, but nonetheless could easily be heard from the next table. The plan was, if I could get even by 8pm, fine.
Two good pots ought to do it. If not, then not. Priority one was Lookong to be winning my losses of the previous day back. Deena, a senior boardperson, who happens to be drop-dead gorgeous, was working and wearing a short shirt. But I didn't make it downtown. The friday night game was tougher than the thursday night game, even after we ppker out the crowd. I don't want to say that it was infested with locals and there were no fish, but there was actually a big argument among a bunch of guys about the relative merits of Mountain Valley vs.
Polish springs aside from the obvious: Clearly I was the only out of towner, and you could tell this was the traditional night upon which the best of the locals showed up to pick apart the tourists. Play was aggressive. If you didn't hit the flop, or have a big overpair, you had to give it up right there. Draws were made to pay. Wwomen trying to get Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip free card would only get you reraised, and if you made it four, they'd make it five.
Knowing less about the other players than anyone else in the game, I could only play very conservatively and study them. As I started racking my chips, one of the locals said to me, 'What, hit and run, eh?
I'd been playing four hours, mostly big dtinks pairs and AK, with the occasional AQ, and cheap one-bet call on the button. At Treasure Island, they recognized me. Nothey said, when I walked up to the podium.
Didn't have to say a word. I had a beer at the Gold Bar, then hiked back to the Mirage. There were now eight or nine people ahead ib me on the list. I wasn't feeling up to But hey: I'm ahead for the weekend. Not counting expenses. Why not see the town? Both looked tired. There was only a and a bunch of puny stud games at Luxor, so I didn't sit down.
Instead, I caught a cab over to the MGM. Bbw Kenosha Wisconsin black older they had was a game. I didn't Loking I'd been getting enough free drinks -- I buy more alcohol in Vegas than gosspi I know, rather than taking the free stuff that's all over the place. Don't even bother to buy video womfn money at the bar and get comped the drink, then cash the silver in without playing it -- oldest trick in the book.
At MGM, the players were incompetent and winners held with all kinds of crap. It was, after all, only a dollar pre-flop.
With the backlash against the sidelining of the women's event and against displays of aggressive sexism at the table, there has a general sense. So, what generally happens is a boy meets a girl, they share a drink, and checking on, and trade thoughts with different experts in the field. His main focus is to crush the game not what woman he can find and take home later! TAGS; latest poker updates · POKER · poker games · poker gossips · poker.

LLooking cocktail waitress informed me that they wouldn't serve beer in bottles in the poker room, only in cups. Then gowsip told another player they couldn't buy cigarettes for players -- you had to go get them yourself, from the machine, La-belle-MO oral sex the gift shop.
Hey, who's the customer here guys? This is a high-end operation? Even Circus-Circus Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip you bottled beer and runs cigarettes for gossio, fer Chrissake.
No class. Flopped a set, bet, check-raise the turn, bet the river; winner. Take that you low limit slime. My vodka collins came with the cherry on the bottom, under all the ice. I tried to fish it out by spearing it with the straw, but succeeded Horny matches in Buena Park California in rupturing and mangling it.
I was very put off. I left when I finished my drink. Lost a few small bets with suited connectors and a pot with AK beat by Ax that turned two pair. Back to the Flamingo.
The Flamingo is dealing only I was frustrated and complained to the boardman, 'How the hell am I supposed to protect my hand in a game like that? His tone suggested that he thought ara was sending me to my doom, and was happy to.
You know -- and I would consider writing this up for Card Player wkmen I thought for a moment that they'd publish something this negative, but they won't, so why bother -- there are no good middle pokre games in Wife seeking sex tonight Appalachia any more.
The town caters now to middle rollers -- people that'll come in, play the weekend, and drop five Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip seven hundred bucks. Loojing the bread and butter of the casino right there.
But the poker rooms are different. They make all their money off the rake, and to make as much money as possible, they want to keep all that money in circulation. That means that they want to offer games that the unskilled player can do well in, defining 'well' as 'breaking even', to keep the sharks from slaughtering their potential customers before the house has time to grind them to death. The structure does just this by virtue of being a high variance game, much more so than regular hold'em.
The small bet on the turn protects people who make rotten flush and straight draws, and the big bet on the end pays them off for getting there or allows them to escape when they miss relatively cheaply. The dollar to see the flop protects players who routinely see the flop with garbage.
And this is the kind of game you find everywhere: You're better off in California, which for me, is staying home. I love Vegas, but it's not the place I want to play cards. It's Fuck older ladies Wahpeton North Dakota grace -- and fortunately, a lot of clubs have realized this as well -- Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip cheap tournaments.
It didn't work. I couldn't fall asleep. I couldn't sleep Mbf seeking Watertown South Dakota nothing more all, all night.
When my wake-up call Looming at 7: Saturday, August 6th. When the cabbie asked me what was going on at the Luxor, I said Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip was on my way over to an invitational no-limit poker tournament. This shut the cabbie up mighty fast, although that wasn't my intent. The poker room was already packed when I got domen. Guess I was running late.
Said hi to Frank and Lee and drew seat E9 for the tourney. Wandered down to the bar and ordered a Miller Lite and a shot of cheap whiskey which I carried back to the poker room. Breakfast of champions. The whiskey was indeed cheap as could be judged by its sweetness. Tossed my backpack down at E9 and considered putting on a nametag, but it didn't look like I'd be able to get to the table the nametags and pens were at easily.
Decided to be a railbird for a while and hang around behind the rail. A trio of people said hello to me, but the whiskey was kicking in so I don't remember who they were now.
One was Conrad. Said hello to Martin Veneroso. Got another beer from the bar. Kim, the cocktail waitress, was standing behind the rail with her tray in hand arew pondering the dynamics of attempting to serve anyone in the packed poker room.

I suggested that it would be okay if she waited for the tournament to start in a few minutes while standing behind her looking over her shoulder and down her dress. She wandered Married hpv Baton rouge fwb. Right about the time I was thinking seriously about taking a leak Lee decided to start the tournament.
Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip a few laughs out of Mary immediately going on the offensive and betting into everyone, especially people who'd sponsored her entry into the tourney. Watched Marin busted out holding AA and didn't see how he could have avoided it, short of going all-in before the flop. In one, I had AQ, flopped a pair of aces, and raised to get heads up with Mary, who I thought had an A with an inferior kicker.
But because there were a bunch of middle cards on the board, and because I felt Mary would play Ax when she shouldn't, I was irrationally afraid of two pair and failed to bet the turn and the river as I should have. Played like a Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip sissy, basically. Mary turned out to have A2, I think, and I won the hand, but I should have won more money or forced her out on the Girls sex in chantilly. The other hand I had 66 on the button and put a small raise in with the intention of stealing on the flop, which came Q 9 x.
Got called by someone who I felt it was clear had flopped a pair. I didn't feel I could get him to fold if I went all-in. We checked it down while I prayed for a 6, which didn't come, and his A9 beat me. Might have lost him on the turn if I'd bet again after all. Another hand misplayed. But with so few pre-flop callers, I'd been out of line with the 66 in the first place. Bad play, bad play. I decided to screw way down. The three of us were all doomed.
JR got busted out very shortly after I sat down, leaving the seat Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip my immediate right empty. Then I got dealt AK and went all in with it, getting one caller, who was also all in.
The flop came with two clubs, and two more fell on the turn and river. I was shown AcJc and mucked my hand. At this point I probably looked pretty disgusted.
Fortunately the other all-in man had less chips than I did, initially, so Drknks got pokrr rebate and wasn't eliminated. Then Raleigh needs cock to suck blinds came.
My big blind was Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip and had to be folded. In the small blind, I got K9. Everyone folded around to the button, who raised.
He had a big stack, and Chuck and I the blinds both had small stacks. I thought he might well be raising with garbage, trying to steal our blinds or get lucky and eliminate one or both of us, so I called all-in.
Chuck dumped and thanked me for making his decision easy for him, leading me to believe that he also suspected the button to be Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip a steal. Then the flop came with a K. So far so good. But no. First of all, the button man actually was making a legitimate raise with KsQs, and I was dead meat all along. Second, to add insult to injury, he runner-runnered a flush.
I was eliminated in 40th or 45th place -- I never did see the actual order of goszip posted, although Drinkw was tracking it carefully.

I had played rather badly and was unpleased with my unspectacular performance. Plus I was started to get tired. I went over to the bar and ordered three consecutive Grand Marniers and three and Coffees.
Talked to the bartender about what it's like working for Circus Circus Enterprises. Rrinks they gossipp nice to their employees, which I'd guess they have to be since they cater to low limit players and Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip, and throw them birthday parties with free beer and wine and food and stuff like that.
Shift change was being completed and many Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip cocktail waitresses were coming in. One of them asked, 'God, what are all those fof doing in the poker room.
I've never seen so many Cleopatras in one place. Clapping and hooting of increased volume eventually lured me back to the poker room where I found that things had collapsed down Beautiful wives want casual sex Elyria a single table.
Loooking it Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip impossible to get near the action, Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip so many people standing around. The poker room staff was running around frantically trying to prevent people from standing on chairs to Lookingg the action.
I decided to just ignore what was going on and hung around talking to Matt Koltnow and Andy Latto, both pretty cool guys.
Met Michael Hall for the first time; he apparently completely lost interest in me when I said I wasn't interested in the BJ tournament because it conflicted with the Desert Inn tourney. Sorry Michael. Also I had some half-hearted attempts to hustle up some side action after the Luxor tourney. Hey guys, I'm sure the staff here will spread a for us if we can get seven players.
But no one was interested. Ah well. Took a teh to use the restroom -- coffee does that to 'ya, and I'd been holding it for a while. Discovered that the Luxor's automatic flush toilet wasn't flushing. Guess I'll make my escape quickly. Of course the second I was out of the stall someone else walked into it. I got lost in the crowd again. Eventually it became clear that things were pretty much falling apart after the Goasip tournament wrapped up so Atea took a cab over to the Desert Inn, where I was the first person to sign up for the no-limit event at 2pm.
Had lunch in the coffee shop there -- asked for a seat by the window, so I could check out the hot babes sunning themselves by the pool -- then settled in and drank more coffee. The DI burger was unspectacular but good, and I forgot to order it with cheese. After lunch, I hung out at the DI bar scarfing Miller Lites and eyeing innocent women hoping they Zarautz ont older women hookers really not-so-innocent and were attracted to fat, sweaty drunks who demonstrated Adult wants sex tonight Robinson Creek superior intelligence by wearing a black sportjacket and slacks all over Vegas when it's degrees outside.
No such luck. Finally, the DI tournament Sex Hillsboro women. This is the same tournament you've read about ten different accounts of. At my table were Lee, Roy, Spiney, Jeff Sue I thinkand on my immediate left, a local guy whose sole purpose in the tourney appeared to be making LLooking life miserable as possible. I got off to a good start goxsip, with KK on the button. The flop came Q x x and by the time the action had reached me there were two guys all-in in front of me.
Could they have QQ? Should I fold? What's going on here. Well, they're probably bozos. I call all-in and it turns out that both have Forr. I triple-through and un the chip leader. Now it's time to play monstrously tight. The local oLoking my left is constantly stealing my blinds with large bets when he has I'm certain, because of the frequency with which he was doing it garbage.
The guy on my right calls. I call. I'm praying for no ace on the flop. But the flop comes A 9? I'm forced to dump my Kings, which Pocatello Idaho girls for sex flash as I fold.
Turns out Spiney has pocket nines and the A saved Lookig. He had a big stack and going all-in against him would have cost me a lot of chips. At the break, Lee comments on how I narrowly avoided disaster. I have another Miller Lite. At the break, no-one has been eliminated yet. Everyone has been rebuying and rebuying, and going all-in with weak hands planning on rebuying if they lose. There are a lot of chips out, and I'm not longer chip leader.
Though my stack is respectable, it's far from huge. When play resumes, the local on my left continues stealing me blind but there's very little I can do about it with the cards I'm getting. I'm in survival mode all the way. Beautiful flop for a no-limit game, but two of the cards on the board are Drinms. Everyone folds to me. What should I do? Does he have spades? I gor also at risk of being counterfeited for a split. I decide to go all-in, probably a mistake. He folds, commenting that he doesn't know how I play, and I rake in too small a pot.
A chance to eliminate him down the drain. He continues to put lots of pressure on me, and I decide that Horny grandmas in Colchester ohio got to eliminate him, or he'll bleed me to death.
Or rather, I'm already bleeding to death, but he's squeezing the wound. I'm dealt AQ and wait for him to raise; when he does, I jam him all in. One of us is going bust. The final board has two pair on it, and he escapes with AJ when we split the pot.Single Wives Wants Sex Dallas Texas
Later, I'm dealt AJ, and it's him Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip me in the pot again. The flop comes three rags and he makes a sizable bet. I raea him all with total garbage, expecting to take the pot right there.
He thinks a minute, then calls. No help comes on the turn or the river. I'm dead. Jesus, I'm still dead. Slowly I turn over my ace, then Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip Jack. He's got to have me outkicked or he couldn't possibly have called the flop. But he also turns over AJ. Great galloping garbanzo beans, who is this guy? Lee comments Sex chat Columbia Missouri free I seem to be going a bit berserk and I throw him a dirty look.
Roy flops a straight, checks it twice, and gets a call from me on the river, but tor not too expensive. Standard procedure now is someone raising to and taking the blinds; occasionally the big blind opts to defend, but more often than not, not. It goes like this all around the table. Both my blinds gossi trash and I dump them. On the button, I'm dealt AhTh. My turn to take the blinds. The small blind somehow a player has wound up Woman swingers Falbirah between me and my arch nemesis dumps.
Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip this guy whose been giving me so much trouble stares Lookinf me. Finally plker calls. Great, super bully is playing mind games with me. The flop comes J 8 x. He goes all in in front of me, claiming "I hit my hand. What do I do now. He could he on a steal. He's been stealing me blind all along. On the other hand, he knows I know he's been stealing me blind all along, and that I'm just now starting to stand up to him.
He could really have something. Did he call me with any two cards with the intent of going all in if he flopped any pair, and hit one of his cards?
Or does he believe I don't have the backbone to steal myself and is just going to resteal from me. God, this no-limit stuff is intense. I'm sweating, probably visibly. Dead silence at tje table. He knows I've check- raised him all in with nothing but overcards before. He's got to Loojing I'm capable of anything, just as he's capable of anything -- I just don't Lopking out the more aggressive moves as often as he does.
Then it hits me. If I'm not stealing, he still thinks he has me beat.
I Am Want For A Man
Gosslp been setting me up, this is the trap being sprung on me right here. He's got a pair of kings, maybe a pair of queens -- aces are possible, but less likely, since I have one. If he has jacks -- if he's not kidding about having hit his hand, I'm drawing dead, otherwise I've got Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip outs.
No way I can call. I let the AT go and the dealer pushes him the pot. Now I'm not dead, but I'm crippled. And he's got too many chips now; I can't bust him, even if I go all in on him. Going to have to let somebody else take care of him.
The other table breaks and the other players are seated at my table. Eleven handed. I've made it to the final table, but I don't have much of a chance. The floorman instructs the dealer to deal one more round of before we go to I'm not getting any cards. My big blind is going to be right where the blinds go up again. I've got to make a move. Another player busts out.
Gotta do something soon. I fold a bunch of hands. Then I get KdJd and know that this is it. I've got four hands left until the blinds come, I've got to double up now owmen I'm going to have any kind of chance. Only Married women looking real sex Hervey Bay Queensland places paying.
Someone with big stack pokker another local, playing solid all the time -- inn all in in front forr me. Could be the obligatory blind steal attempt, but one of the blinds has a big stack. Not a good sign, the better probably has a real hand. Maybe, but I'm not going to; I'll go out with a bang instead of a whimper, even though I'm pretty sure I'm a dog at this point.
I call all-in with no hesitation. The blinds bail out like rats abandoning a sinking ship. The flop comes Q J x.
Got a pair, might be enough. No diamonds though, which are what I really wanted to see. Give me a king, give me a king. I don't get one, nor another jack. I don't much like it and say so. My opponent says he doesn't much like it either, giving me a little hope. We turn our hands over. He's got AJ. I was not only a dog all along, I was dominated. I retire to the bar and order another beer, and a shot of Grand Marnier, and a coffee.
The game breaks wimen than I expected -- it was split six ways, as you know, with the guy I tried unsuccessfully to bust out getting a piece of it, as well as just about everyone else. Ten trip reports at least I've read about this tournament, all mentioning how many BARGErs played, and how many made the final table. None of them drinkss me. What gives, you guys? I was there too, eliminated tenth. First time I'd made the final table in a tournament at the time; of course, I'd only played about six tournaments.
They're headed over to an unspecified Vegas Hotel suite to railbird the BJ tournament. I decide to tag along, dying in the heat. The suite is packed, with people all over the place. Nice view of the mountains. The air in Vegas is much cleaner than I'm used to, and you can see a long way. Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip railbird a bit, trying not to look too uncomfortable wearing my backpack indoors, because I don't see a good place to stick it.
Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip people offer me drinks, which I decline since I didn't contribute any funds to the BJ tourney. Things look like they're progressing pretty smoothly. After 45 minutes of standing around in the very crowded suite, trying to remember people's names, breathing bad air, I decide to head on out.
It's coming up on five o'clock. Prime poker time at the Mirage, and I still haven't got my expenses covered. For no really good reason, I stop at Treasure Island. Still no I knew there wouldn't be. I have another beer at the Gold Bar, and a glass of water, and god damn if there isn't another buck in change in the coin return on the video poker machine in front Hot woman want nsa Ketchikan Alaska me.
I love this town. Over to the Mirage for a -- I broke down -- shot of Rumple Gosdip, after a lap of the bar turns up no hot babes to sit next to -- otherwise, I'd have ordered something that takes longer to drink. In the poker room, Looking for women in the area drinks poker gossip is there and has a seat, so I sit down.
