And, ahem, a big welcome to the blonde forum to....Burnley John.

Do you play poker mr John? - or can I call you Burnley?

And is it really you? - I was told you could not read or write, or use punctuation. Ridiculous.
Read the first line of the burnley john post again ....It was simon posting, john is still trying to work out why the mouse that came with his computer wont eat the cheese he leaves out for it every night Wink

Got up nice an early, went to gym and spent a couple of hours by the pool. Its red hot in the morning but no poker players to be seen, surprise surprise, the action is 24 hours here. There are 3 pools at the Rio, backing onto Caesars Palace and the strip, its beautiful here. Got to arena at 11.55pm, found seat and checked out my opponents. All 3 players to my left were wearing WSOP bracelets including John Hennigan who I had seen on TV playing the WPT.  The 1st level was very aggressive, with John Hennigan taking control of the table. I tried to play a few pots with him but he just bet me out. 2 guys out already, one poor chap ran into quad 9's with his nut flush (turn 9 and river 9!). I was absolutely card dead, by best hand being KQ under the gun. I played a couple of pots with suited connectors but hit nothing. Down to 3,500 chips at the start of level 2. I then played a couple of multi-way pots with 99 and 66 to try and hit a set but without success. Then on the big blind I picked up a massive hand - 55, 6 people limped in and the small blind raised $400. I felt he was weak as he done the same with A8 off suit last round. This made over $1000 in the pot. I thought about passing my 55 but the pot was smiling at me, so I moved all-in for $3000 not expecting a call, or wanting one. The 1st limper said to me, are you all-in? and then took ages to make up his mind and flat called my $3000. I knew I was in deep trouble, as with a hand like AK or TT he would have moved all-in to isolate me. Everyone passed and he turned over AA. Never mind I thought, only a 4-1 dog, Its about time I hit a set - the flop came AKK - game over. The small blind commented that he was glad he passed his A rag, as he would have got involved! What did I learn todayDon't try to be too clever with that many limpers in the pot! There were 498 entries today, I went out 387th, very poor showing. Due to my early exit I'm off to the Palms Hotel tonight to play a $400 comp, there're getting 300+ runners more every night. There is also a $500 at the Bellagio at 2pm every day, so plenty to do if you get knocked out. Had a coffee with Robert Binelli after I got knocked out and he told me that I overplayed my 55 to which I replied, But I never wanted a caller, Rob!  Tikay has asked me to email some photos over, if anyone has any special requests please let me know.
