                  I have just returned from my first live poker experience. I spent the week in Vegas playing the smaller buy ins daily to see if I could emulate my online play live. Caesars has a couple daily $80 buy ins that fetch about 40 players and top 3-7 ITM depending on entrants. Monday and Tuesday were spent there getting slightly past middle of the pack and getting comfortable playing live. Takes some time to get used to counting chip stacks and people have different ways of making that harder by mixing up dirty chips, hiding with their hands, setting the 1k chips back slightly, and setting them behind a beverage. Most of Wednesday was spent searching for cheaper than $80 tournaments with a larger entrants and prize pools. Settled on the Mirage for 2 daily $60 at 11am and 7pm and Harrahs across the street for the 3pm. Hit a third place at Mirage on Wednesday and a 4 way chop at Harrah's that evening so at that point had broke even on the trip. Friday was 11am - 2am tournaments finishing at Caesars for the 11pm which I finished 13th out of around 80, but out of the money. The trip was paid directly off of poker stars bankroll and the idea was to gain live experience which was accomplished. I am seeing the game differently now and the future goal is to roll up to 4k and not let the wife take any out. The goal is to be in Vegas late summer and play at the Venetian Deep Stacks tournaments at around $300 entry. The better players go there and many more entrants than Mirage or Harrah's, or Caesars. It was the off season although but that is what I've discovered on this first trip to Vegas. I was playing much above the 2k bank roll from playing on stars but the experience warranted breaking my 2% rule. Still haven't deposited since Oct 2010 starting at $200, but may have to again from the cost of this trip. Ken Horrell (HurtToSit)

                    goals: keep learning and getting better. Everything you see, you can learn from.

                    online: Grow my online bankroll, so that I can play in more tournies (have a start from the WBCOOP with four $11 SCOOP tix). I'm hoping to satellite into a few of the $11 or higher tournies on PS too this year (have gotten into the storm/quarter mil twice and was bad beat in both, want to amend those finishes).

                    live: keep playing in the smaller casino daily tournies, when possible, to grow a bankroll there (hoping for 3 Vegas dailies when I go later this year and maybe 1-2 at other casinos).

                    I'd like to win enough from online and casino tournies to play in another WSOP Circuit, when they are in Hammond, IN in October..... and build that into a smaller WSOP tourney in Vegas next year.

                          2011 Goals:
                          Continue building relationships online within this community and grow as a person and poker player.

                          Win current prop bet.

                          Cash top 10 3 times in 2011.

                          Live/Online Tourneys:
                          Currently running tourney chips money up at the STL WSOP Circuit Events. With the help of 3 others we have net profit of $4250. Only a week left to get this to 10K but with added buy in's in tourneys and ME yet to play. We got a shot.

                          I would like to say that this community will keep you on our toes and learning if you are willing to put in the time. I can't say enough to each and everyone of you. THANKS!!!!

                          I will continue to grind each and every day. I will use the knowledge gained both live and online and hope to one day not worry about money.

                            Will do. I hope I can play, as I also might be in Vegas then (like last year) as that trip is set more by my sister's schedule than mine. I'm probably going to be in Milwaukee on the 22nd at Potawatomi, but with the people I'm going with, poker's probably out... will play pai gow for a bit though.

                            Also... 45 min???? what helicopter are you using or what police escort? It takes me 45-50 min to get there and if my memory's right, you're 2 counties north of me.
