Current Location: Vegas, Baby!

Current Weather: 95 -104F

Current Reads:

What I'm listening to: The sound of poker chips being shuffled, passed between dealer and players, and tossed across the table at the World Series of Poker. With more than 200 tables, it's often the first thing you hear when entering the room, and louder than you could imagine. I love it.

Movies this week: Stood up for Cinderella Man! Will try again....

Months in Vegas since the move: Almost 3

Days left in the World Series of Poker: 7

Friends still competing in the WSOP: 2

Average hours a day I spend at the World Series of Poker: 5

Average hours a day all the other media spend at the WSOP: 12 - 15

Hours I'll probably spend there this week: 50+

The refreshed current list of casino games I know how to play: Craps, Hold'em Poker, Pai Gow, Baccarat, Let it Ride, "3,5,7", and the dreaded BlackJack.

Funnest game besides craps: Still Pai Gow

Money won at Pai Gow on the fourth of July: $15 from 20 minutes

Money I lost at Pai Gow last night: $45 from 90 min

Money I lost to a professional poker player while he was banking at Pai Gow last night: $60

Money I got from a side bet he created so I could recoup some of my losses: $20

Chance that said pro will greet me with smiles when I see him next at the WSOP: 90%

Chance that he'll greet Boyfriend X with indifference or a scowl for no good reason the next time he sees him at the WSOP: 90%

GREAT! I have prior commitments as of Sunday at 1230pm, but I can see you before then. By the time you get here the WSOP will have moved to Binion's. Sooo, I'm not sure what the situation will be then as far as us watching. I should've pressed you to come this weekend. Sorry.
