Luck of the Irish?
Happy St. Patirck's Day to everyone from your host, Pauly McGrupp. This is the one day of the year when I am not considered an alcoholic... since every place I know that serves liquor is encouraging serious binge drinking over the entire day. No where else in the world... except America... can the powers to be hijack a religious holiday and turn it into a rowdy, drunken, puke fest... sponsored by Budweiser and Guinness of course. Alas, I'm bloody Irish (and an alcoholic... thanks Mom & Dad for passing on the gene!) so everyday is my St. Patrick's Day... but today gives my Italian, Black, Jewish, and Canadian friends an excuse to get drunk at lunch time, get angry for no apparent reason, and sing dirty drinking songs at the top of their lungs. Enjoy your special day and don't forget to tip your bartenders.
Alas, I decided to see if lady luck and Irish luck is on my side today. I'm hitting the tables at Party Poker later today to play in the WPT super satellite qualifier ($22 + $2), or whatever that tourney is called. If you win that tourney you get a seat in the WPT super satellite and can win a shot at the WPT event at the Bellagio in April. And then afterwards, I hope to school some drunk fish playing NL Ring games to help contribute to my Las Vegas bankroll. Only 27 days until I hit Sin City and I'm getting jumpy.
Speaking of Vegas, make sure you read Jeremy's (from Love and Casino War) Vegas Trip Report. He made it into the money in one tourney and kicked ass at the Bellagio one night. Read all about it on Up for Poker.
