Vegas Baby!

The Baron, Sat, 12/08/2006 - 12:18am
After hooking up with the poker prodigies Pab and SexyGee in Vegas my learning curve commenced. No, not in poker but in drinking, straddles and the 'Purple Highway'.

Tired Of Being Tired

 The Beagle Bulletin tired of being tired  It’s approaching Midnight and I’m on my way up to the Rio’s spectacular Voodoo Lounge (a location which relies on nothing more than the magnificent Las Vegas skyline view – it really doesn’t require anything else).

The End Of A Line

The Beagle Bulletinthe end of a line Does your pinky ever go crazy when you’re typing, shuddering uncontrollably as you rest your hand on the keypad? No? Is it just me? Maybe it’s the booze…

The Final Frontier

Well, like a true professional I took a whole 4 days off before the Main Event. I refused to talk about poker, listen to poker stories or even go near The Rio. We played basketball, golf and went go-carting. I played Football Manager on my PC, read a little and chilled out by the pool. I resisted the temptation to go out and get drunk, and managed ...

booze, strippers & a 'house of cards'

The Beagle BulletinBooze, Stippers & A 'House Of Cards' Well, that about sums up last Wednesday night. In what ultimately turned out to be a rather eye-opening evening, your trusted blonde team decided to temporarily hang up their updating boots, throw back their hair and treat themselves to a long awaited night of fun.

Time For A Break

Saturday 22nd  July Today’s comp was the $5000 PLH - the Event that my friend Brian Wilson won a bracelet in last year. No banana for me again though. Played 2 hands, lost 2. The second (my exit hand) is marginally interesting though.

My First Ever WSOP Event

The Beagle Bulletin my first ever wsop event Yesterday, I played in my first ever World Series’ Event – the $1,500 No Limit Hold ‘Em Freezout. With just $1,500 in chips, these Events aren’t renowned for having the best structure (the more shrewd players tend to wander down to the Bellagio or Wynn instead), ...

A Change Of Scenery

 The Beagle Bulletin a change of scenery -- The Orleans -- A couple of days ago, Jen and I moved from the lovely Can Cun resort into the more gambling orientated Orleans Hotel. Compared to the rather garish sights of the Rio, I quite like this place. It’s full of bright flashing lights, but it’s not over the top and there seems to ...

The Vegas Undercircuit - or - Shoestring Tablehopping

jen, Mon, 24/07/2006 - 7:11am
I think I might have just coined two phrases (I hope so, at least) but what they signify is the travel of a small-bankrolled player under the radar of the big poker circuit over here - a hunting out of the $1/$2 NLHE cash games, $4/$8ish PLO hilo, the $100- $300 tournaments and the overflowing satellite and side-event action which one hopes will br...
