Sorry I haven't updated my blog in a while, I have been busy with some things, and I have been in Las Vegas for about 4 days with some friends that are playing the WSOP events. I drove up from Cottonwood AZ with bIlIaRdS, and came to the house that we are staying at for the summer. Its a real nice house in Henderson Nevada and there are some great poker-playing roomates. LURPED, pbdrunks, check_kills, H@LLINGGOL, bet2win, SamENole, biliards and I are all in the house. Its awesome to see everyone on their laptops playin online... There is another house a few minutes away with ahh_snap, reddogg, dbelhume, bel0wab0ve and more players who came over and played too. I have met a lot of players I have played with and learned a lot from them. Tonight I played the $150 on stars and got some help from PearlJammer and learned a lotta new stuff I didn't even consider.
This whole trip should be great experience. I have been playing online when I get the chance, and I even got to play live today at the Rio. Even though I am 18, they don't card anyone, so I haven't had any problems yet, besides getting set over setted in a $5k pot :)
I get kinda star-struck watching all the pro's I see on TV play literally right next to me, its very cool. Its also great to put a face on the online players I play with everyday, and learn things from them.
About the $200k challenge.... As you know I was about 10 days into it, running bad, and it kinda faded away. Since then I made cashouts and just gave up on the challenge and kinda messed around at lower limits. I am playing 5/10 still for now while I am in vegas, but I am not doing any kind of challenge. When I get to my new house in Tucson on August 5th, I will begin another challenge, probably $150k in a 100 days or something like that. For now I won't be updating my blog everyday with the goal.
There's a quick update for you, I will post if I can if anything cool happens down here in vegas!
