Vegas Bound!


Time to collect my prize for my second-place finish in our Vegas of Bust Poker League. Ms. Duck and I fly out of Dallas tomorrow, heading west to that big money-pit in the desert. I will compete in WSOP event #57. We start pitching cards at noon on Sunday.

Born in '57, fifty-seven years old, event #57. Guess that means I should finish 57th! Not MOJO territory, but I'd sure take it.

We'll stay Saturday at the Luxor, which is a new experience for us, and then move to the Vdara for the remainder of the week before flying home on the 4th of July.

I will update as time permits.

Till next time, win the flips.

WSOP Cash

Not me, unfortunately, but one of our Vegas or Bust League players.


Congrats to Tin Man, who won first place this season, placed #169 in event 30, good for a $2100+ cash. He'll keep half and the other nine league players will split the other half.

Nice!

Ms, Duck and I fly out of Dallas a week from Saturday and I'll play in the WSOP Sunday. Tin Man will be a tough act to follow!
