Poker Words - A Poker Blog

Mostly a recount of my poker exploits along with a bunch of random other stuff just for fun.

Vegas Baby!

Is that the most original title for a blog post or what? Sometimes my creative talent amazes even myself.

A friend IMed me the other day, commenting on how impressed he was that I had actually written two posts this month. This is really going to blow his mind. I'm going to put a third, that's right third post out this month. Enjoy it while you can folks. Marvel at it. This doesn't happen very often and could very well be the last time its ever seen in this section of the blogosphere.

I suppose I should write something with actual substance for this momentous occasion, now what was I going to write about? Ah that's right. Vegas Baby. I'm going to Vegas.

I haven't been to Las Vegas in many years. My wife has little interest in it so it makes it hard to get that at the list of vacation destinations. The only reason she really wants to go is to see O. I want to go to play poker for 48 hours straight.

My wife's brother lives in LA. We went out to visit him a couple years ago, and my wife has gone a few times with her parents, but I really didn't care for LA all that much. I do however really want to go to Vegas. Since LA is reasonable close we decided that we'd fly out there, and he could meet us for the weekend. Its a win-win. She gets to see her brother and the Cirque du Solei show, and I get to go to Vegas.

As I mentioned before, I haven't been in many years. In fact, I've only been there once, about eight years ago, before I even played poker. So I want to get in some low limit poker, and possible a decent sized tournament while I'm there. Anyone have any thoughts on the best poker rooms and/or tournaments on the weekend for someone like me? Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated. We're going in late February/early March if that matters.
