Hitting the Road for the World Series of Poker

by Lou on July 8, 2006

Packed and Ready
I’m about to pack and hit the road for Las Vegas and the World Series of Poker. I’m glad, too. I can’t wait to play some face-to-face poker. This year I’ve been writing — one book out and three more in the works — so most of my playing has been online recently. That’s not bad, but I really miss the social aspect of the game.

Besides, the WSOP is almost turning into a convention for the poker business — a chance to talk and shmooze with people I haven’t seen since last year.

Redneck Wedding
With all the wacky weddings I’ve seen in Vegas, I still haven’t seen anything to equal this one. It’s the ultimate Redneck Wedding. I wasn’t there. I don’t know the couple, or even their dog, and I’ve never been inside their trailer. But it’s an instant classic, redneck wedding picture.

When you look at it, just remember: If you think you’re own life is hanging on the edge and slipping, it probably can’t get any worse than this!

Movie Screening
I’ve also go an invitaion to a private screening at the Palms of No Limit, a poker documentary that interviewed me, as well as a gazillion other poker people, and I’m eager to see it. It’s set for July 26.

Radio Broadcasting
But before that, I intend to play some poker and do some more radio broadcasting. www.Holdemradio.com, which hosts Keep Flopping Aces, the weekly poker show co-hosted by Amy Calistri and me every Thursday night at 9:00 PM Eastern Time, is setting up a remote broadcasting facility in Vegas for the WSOP, and so I’m planning on spending some time there. The broadcast facility will be headquartered at the Imperial Palace, so if you see me over there or at the Rio, please come over and say “hello.”

Tournaments, Cash Games, Sats….decisions, decisions, decisions
I don’t know if I’ll play in any WSOP events this year, or just play side games and satellites. I’ll make my decisions on the fly, on the spur of the moment.

I’ll have my laptop with me, so I can stay on top of this blog. And for all of you who read this blog and keep me supplied with the incredibly wacky pictures I’ve been posting once a week or so, keep ’em coming.
