  • Ultimate Bet Aruba

    Hi all!

    Just spent ten days in Aruba. Decided at the last minute to play in the Ultimate Bet tournament.

    This was a great venue. The weather was great and the poker was phenomenal.

    It was quite intimate- and the top players were extremely visible and accessible. My last table I had Layne Flack to my right enjoying a number of beers. I got stuck in an impossibly huge draw against a set of Aces. I never improved and went out in 167th place. Not entirely shabby.

    I spent some time with PokerHo on the $10/20 NL table. He likes to see a lot of flops- not so tight playing cash. I also played with annette_15- she is a great player. Cute- still in high school.

    Oddly enough- I played for quite some time with Joran Vander Sloot. This is the kid implicated in the disappearance of Natalie Holloway. He is somewhat of a celebrity in Aruba- and most locals seem to beleve he is innocent. A bit creepy- but he was a calling station and shipped alot of chips.

    I missed my plane on the way back. When they say three hours needed before flight- they mean it. I was forced to endure an extra two days in paradise. My wife was fairly understanding- lol
