Well..Heres somewhat of a trip report... If you are a poker enthusiast, you have to go out to Vegas during the WSOP. The games are juicy, and well somethings just get damned wierd. I ended up not playing in an event, but I might go out for the ME )
Friday night playing 1-2 NLHE at the IP (dont know why I love this place so much) end up losing two monster pots one with Q-J to a flop of Q-J-2
guy turns over 2s. Two hands later, same guy..I have K-2 on the BB. Flop comes J-2-2 He turns over A-2 So we stay out the rest of the night getting wrecked. Let me tell you, the IP is a dump, but its really easy to get everything comped there. Me and some guy at the table almost get kicked out as we are betting on people walking by the room, doing push ups etc
Saturday we head over to the Rio. The place is a mad house. They run like 5 different tournaments at once.

We got to watch Alan Cunninghams win live. Its wierd, because all of the ESPN events have audiences, and lots of cheering, etc.
When Phil won his braclet, they had them behind of curtain and have slight delay simulcast (with hole cards) through out the hotel. (not sure what this is all about.)
Heres my wife playing in the womens event. They dont allow flash photography in there, and my camera sucks
So Saturday night we go over the Wynn. The spread a 1-3 NLHE game there with $3 dollar chips. My advice for poker players..dont drink alot of Grey Goose when you are playing...I ended up mucking a flush and losing a pretty big pot. Anyway, couple days later, I want to see if I can piss more money away and decided to up the stakes... I play 10-20 limit at the Wynn..
5 hands in I flop a ROYAL FLUSH!!! I about **** myself. needless to say it was a VERY large pot, with the other guy floping a lower straight flush.
anyways...thats it for now..wish I could have had a cash story in the WSOP..
