  • Vegas Trip Report

    Before I begin, thanks to woodsteid, ineedajoker, AL, quackspot, bigsissy and psumike.

    For my first time in B&M poker land, I think I did pretty well.

    My only tourney was a Sunday afternoon $60 buy-in at Binions. Had alot of fun just soaking in the atmosphere. I was playing pretty well through the first break, sitting pretty close to the average stack. 2nd session started going downhill. Was out-kicked on top pair 2 hands in a row. Then the hand that decided the tourney for me:

    Sitting in BB, 3 callers in front of me including the SB. I have 4-6ns so I check. Flop is 2-3-5. Everybody checks around to me, so I bet about half the pot. I had been fairly aggressive to that point... trying to keep my table image up. But no, everybody folds. I was ticked. Thought I would catch somebody with K-5, A-3, an overpair, something like that. Oh well. Maybe I should have just checked. Cards just weren't falling my way after that and I ended up finishing around 40th of 100.

    I did play some 2/4 NL at Luxor and Aladdin, enough to cover my loss at Binions.

    The highlight of the trip was hitting 4-of-a-kind on video poker. Too bad it was a 5-cent machine. I won a whopping $12.

    Overall it was a good trip. Spent quite a bit of time at a $1 blackjack table that a buddy and I found. He doesn't play poker, so I was able to toss some drinks back with him there and not get too far in the hole. The Bellagio sportsbook was also very kind to me. My Dolphins eeking out the win on Monday night made me a happy person.
