I am hoarse after a night on the tiles with Karlos and his mate Mark. Managed to mix lots of different drinks and seem to have escaped without much of a hangover although i dont think i will do the same tonight. Info for any fast pint drinkers reading and coming out. Todd English P.U.B. at Aria (well just inside crystals) has a 7 seconds pint challenge. Finish within the time and get it free. Mark and myself both passed the challenge. Its a 2 a day maximum but i only did it once as i couldnt face another after Karlos made me drink a shot of 75% proof bacardi which tasted more like tequila, weird.
As for horse games i can sum them up pretty well.
$550 venetian (Wed)
Ridiculous tough table and ran awful
$1,500 WSOP (Fri)
Very good table and ran as bad as can after the first 2 levels.
I was actually up to 6200 from 4500 after 2 hours yesterday. I thought i went card dry levels 3 and 4 but it was nothing compared to the card dead stuff level 5 and 6 (in which i bust).
Final bust hand 1000ish chips 150/300 button limit holdem AKstd raise, sb reraises to isolate with A5off and he sees my hand and says ahhh u got me. I oblige with dont worry the 5 will come as ive just gone ultra negative after folding a ridiculous number of hands across all disciplines. 5 is 2nd card out and its goodnight, not even making the dinner break.
Favourite hand was capping in Razz on 6th street 3 way with a 7 high low which couldnt be beaten at that point and still getting the other guy to stay in. This was early though and gave me a lot of hope before it just all went backwards. Saw people callin with a jack and even a king in razz but it was another "it just wasnt my day" stories. Seem to be gettin a lot of these but what the hell , i only think im due to be luckier in the next one. This will probably be the $2,500 8 game on monday at 5pm.
Unless i go out on the drink again today i guess i'll head over and attack the cash games for today/tommorrow. Maybe pool or gym which i havent really done since the first 6 days, pool looks amazing here.
