Big Day IMO
Event 12 starts at 5pm Vegas Time today, or in about 4 hours. Sadly I am already awake, which is a little unfortunate and makes me an extreme outlier in the house I'm staying in. Last night at about 1:30am two of our party were at the Bellagio playing 15/30, and four more left in two cars to head over there and look for action/fun. I stayed behind and went to sleep because I usually am in bed by 12 and even though tonight's action is scheduled to run until 2:40am I was afraid I wouldn't be able to sleep until 1pm no matter how late I stayed up so here we are. I might try to take a nap in a few hours, but more realistically I'll try to read some LHE tournament strategy, play some hands online and in general chillax until 3 something when I'll head over to the Rio and enjoy the lead up to my first WSOP entrance. Actually I might go shopping for a man purse too now that I think about it. I really need one of those, appearance non-withstanding they are super helpful, or perhaps I'll just press my laptop bag into service. I did manage to draw what looks like a good seat from a geographic point of view, specifically table 307 seat 2 in the Amazon Blue section. My table is in the corner of the tournament area next to two walkways, so I will have easy access to get in/out and have an end seat which I like anyway.
So this post was delayed by ontherail waking up and taking me to Target, where he purchased ladder ball, a soccer ball, hdmi cable, and some ping pong balls. Big win.
Anyway I've kind of lost my train of thought but today's the day wish me luck.
