Las Vegas, NV
Late start for me, due to some crooked doctor and insurance adjuster business. I asked the doc to give me what I need to stay on the field and keep playing. He handed me a jar of Balco and a tube the the clear. I can write everyday for the next three weeks and hit 50 home runs.
Anyway, we're back at the Rio. Four events on the eve of HORSE.

Today's smoke break is brought to you by Borgata Poker blog.
Friedman and Tropical Steve are blogging the main event as we speak. If you don't know, my next reporting gig will be with the Borgata in September. Stay tuned for more details.
The mega-satellite is running for HORSE. $2,250 buy in. Several familiar faces in the last sat before HORSE tomorrow.
Event #40 Triple Draw Final Table: Down to 4. David Sklansky is out in 6th place. No bracelet for over boy. The Razor is in the chiplead seeking his second bracelet. The brother of the Grinder is the shortstack.
Event #42 Seniors: 126 left. Former WSOP champion Tom McEvoy is one of the chipleaders. Tao of Poker reader, Lonnie Boeding, made the money. He's way above average in chips and looking good. The oldest player in the event, Harold Waite, busted out.
Event #40 Triple Draw Final Table: Down to 3. All remaining players are of Asian-decent. The Razor has 50% of the chips in play and is trying to win his second bracelet this year. Phan attracts plenty of young hot Asian ass and they have been hanging out on the rail.
Event #42 Seniors: Caught a crazy hand involving Lonnie. He had Aces. His opponent held 9-3s and flopped two pair. All the money went in on the flop. The board paired on the river and Lonnie doubled up to about 100K.
Damn, blogger.com has been acting up today.
Event #40 Triple Draw Final Table: Still three to go, but Phan lost his lead and is now the shortstack.
Event #41 Mixed Hold'em Final Table: Three to go. The brother of the Binger is first in chips.
Serious technical difficulties today. I'm almost ready to give up and call it a day, especially since HORSE starts tomorrow and I'm not gonna sleep for five straight days.
Who knows if I'll be back...
