A day off today and currently sat at the masquerade bar in the rio having some draft sam adams. Off to see pen and teller with danny tonight then move down to ballys tomorroe. The 1500 shootout is my next event on thursday. Got heads up in this the two times I have played it lets hope for a good run. Im a bit gutted about yesterday I got into a strong position and think I could have played a couple of hands better but such is life.

Still got over a week to go and determined to enjoy every minute. One for the road please mr barman....

Actually im a good few days in and dont think ive had a big drinking session once yet. Might have a few tonight after the show.

Also a big well done to brendan for his cash in the seniors. I didnt manage to see him in the big field but hes a great player and so nice to see the good guys cash.

Busted the shootout in 5th place. Nothing remarkable to report I thought I had a great squeeze position on the button with kq spades after a raise and two callers but ran into kk.

Should add it was a tough table with alan cunningham, nicky evans who busted early and a spanish pokerstars pro. I wasnt gonna outplay them so was prepared to take a shot or two.

Back home after a great two weeks. Really enjoyed the trip even though the poker could have gone better. Danny and Joe both cashed in the Venetian $1,100 but didn"t make the final table and they were a bit disappointed after being in such a good position for so long.

Danny has just tweeted that he"s in the money in the $1,500 wsop event but is short stacked, but it"s another flag for him and he"s beginning to run deep quite consistently so hopefully a big one is not too far away.

Will add a more detailed trip report in the next couple of days and will miss Coventry which is a shame but can"t be helped. 

Vegas is such a great place, would love to make the November APAT event at Caesars. Let"s wait and see......

When I was in Vegas I wandered down to the IP Quad and Harrahs for a look around. The Quad is still in the middle of it"s renovation, with scaffolding outside and different entrances. I couldn"t even find the reception area although I didn"t try too hard. As much as I love the IP, I"d say it"s best avoided until the modernisation is complete.

Harrahs is still fine, although one observation is that the Poker Room has been demolished and poker now takes place in the open casino further down the gaming floor. Not sure if this is permanent but I liked the old room which was enclosed. Apart from that it looked the same as ever and there was a nice bit of music going on in the bar with a couple of nice looking ladies doing a duelling piano act.

The world series is entering the final furlong and I can still get out of it as I"ve got 10% of Joe and Danny and a small piece of APAT's own Joe Carr-Hill. For me it"s been back to work this week but I"m hoping to make the next APAT at Cardiff and hoping to get the Friday off to ensure the normal preparation  ;D

7 is todays number!!
-------------------

So today the date is 7/7. This has sparked some family discussion as in the wsop tonight Joe has been drawn on table 77, seat 7. Hope there"s something lucky in those stats!

Just got back in from buying my lunchtime beer, and as I get to the front of the queue there are all the scratch cards there. I never buy them but made an exception today as there was one that stood out - it"s called Super 7"s and it"s got loads of 7"s all over it. I haven"t scratched it off yet as I know it will be a loser but when I open my first beer I"ll see what I"ve won at that time.

Will be following the wsop updates tonight and here"s hoping Joe, Danny and (APAT) Joe all make it through to day 2.

Just read on Chas Chattas facebook that 5 minutes into main event two players on his table get it all in pre flop with......

AK v 77

Wow. Crazy.

Not sure who won but I think the guy with pocket 7"s must have been reading the last few posts on this thread  ;D ;D
