So, an unfortunate series of events has forced me to reschedule my trip to Vegas for WSOP frivolity. An unfortunate situation arose earlier this month when I received an email from State Farm telling me that I was no longer going to be offered coverage for my car due to the three accidents I had accrued over the past five years. Admittedly, two of them were my fault and the third one was ruled as Mutual negligence, a term I'd never heard of until that point, but either way, in the view of State Farm that also counts as a third accident against my record. So in the quest to find a new insurer,not only was I faced with a higher premium, but I also had to fork over a down payment to the tune of almost $1,000. This is ironically the exact amount I'd intended on taking with me to Vegas as my tournament bankroll.
But, like Manna From Heaven a new situation presented itself, and while it excludes some of the tournaments I wanted to participate in between the 9th and 11th of June , it's a situation where I will have a free hotel room from the last week of June to the second week of August. My GF has landed a job as an ad for who Wants to Be a Millionaire which will be recording at Bally's during this time period. Since my regular job reduces to 3 days a week during the summer, I will be PAing the show on and off during those dates. So first off, any readers that would like tickets to a taping of the show , I'd be happy to get one for you. Second of all, I'll be there playing a good deal of poker during those dates. I'm looking at two tournaments in particular towards the tail end of the series. a later flight of the Giant, and either a pH or Golden Nugget tournament to satisfy my tournament sweet tooth. Otherwise, it will be a bevy of cash games from mid July and into mid-august, which should give me a rich supply of content to spit into this blog for the summer!
