Los Angeles, CA
I haven't had much free time to hang out at Commerce Casino for this year's L.A. Poker Classic. However, I will be making a cameo this weekend for the WPT Invitational on Saturday.
I think there was some sort of mix up, but I got an invite to play in the WPT. Yeah, shocker. I have no idea why I get to play, but I'm definitely excited for the opportunity, even if there was a clerical error and I got Tobey Maguire's invite by mistake. I've never played in a WPT event before, even though this one is a glorified freeroll with second tiered celebrities and other entertainment industry types trying to look good in front of the cameras.
I'll definitely be tweeting my progress at @taopauly.
A few weeks ago, Matt Savage interviewed Linda Johnson. He mentioned that she should be in the Poker Hall of Fame. Check out the video...
