Hello everyone, I've been on this site for a while, mostly lurking, so I decided to post a short trip report. We were in Vegas from January 7th, through the 10th and we had a blast. My wife and I were celebrating our 22nd anniversary, so what better place to celebrate this then in Vegas? We flew out on Thursday, and after only a one hour delay ( thanks Allegiant) we were on our way. My plan had been to get in at 9:30 PM, be downtown by 10:15; check in and head over to the Golden Nugget 10:00 PM tourney. Of course we were about an hour late, so we didn't make it on time. We were staying at the Fremont (3 nights comped) and check in was a breeze. We jumped on the craps table for about an hour (I think) before getting bored (or losing my money). I then convinced my wife that we should try some poker. I then rushed over to the GD for some poker. My wife and I jumped into the 1/2 no limit- talk about a shark pit. I bought in for $150 and started to run the table (or so I thought). I thought to myself, this is easy, I bet, they fold. Honestly, within about an hour I was up to about $300. Disclaimer: this is about 8 beers in about 2.5 hours- So I'm feeling no pain. I was bullet proof. I've only been in town for a few hours, so I'm thinking its about 1 in the morning and these guys are grinders, so they don't want to lose- I on the other hand, don't care. That's why I'm here- to have fun. Karma hits me There's about 8 players with about 2 deep stacks (1000+) and I'm playing like a wild man and making some bank. Feeling cocky, I look at the guy with the most chips and tell him, "Wow, those chips are pretty." Of course he was surprised and responded (with a bewildered look , "that's the first time that anyone has said that to me." I then followed up with, "no one has ever admired your stack before?" I know, poor choice of words..
