Vegas Bound

Ms Duck and I fly from Austin to Las Vegas tomorrow. I will be competing in Event 33 of the WSOP as part of my prize from winning our local poker league.

Last year I was fortunate enough to cash, so I'm hoping to do so again this year.

I'll update here several times during our trip. We'll stay Saturday night at Sam's Town and then move to the strip and set up camp at the Vdara. We stayed there last summer and liked it, so back we go.

Our Vegas or Bust Poker League has our 2nd of 12 tournaments tonight. As in previous years, the top two finishers win trips to Vegas and an entry into the WSOP. I placed second in our first tourney, so I'm off to a decent start.

Leave a comment if you're going to be in Vegas and maybe we can pitch a few cards.

Till next time, win the flips.


  1. Best o' luck in the tournament. Now that MOJO has set the bar so high, I expect at least a second place finish.

  2. I'm pretty sure that I'll be making a trip to Vegas :) and it just so happens that I'm trying to get back into playing now and then as well!

  3. Good luck, Mr. Duck. I don't get back to the end of this week so I believe I will be miss you. But you have my permission to win a bracelet without me.

    1. Wish I had gotten your permission earlier. I was afraid to win it without your blessing, so I let someone else have the jewelry :)

      Thanks for your well wishes!

    2. Damn, sorry I was late. I feel responsible for your loss.

      No refunds, tho.
