    My Trip Report

    Primary Goal:[/U]

    1. Win the $565 buy in Colossal event at the Rio




    Secondary Goals:
    • Win any other $500+ buy in tournament while in Vegas!
    • Meet up with other VMBers
    • Play FBBJ in my spare time
    • Play other cash games/STT to make money to get into the WSOP Main Event in July.
    • If I am out of Day 1A of $565, go to Wynn for the $500 slot pull!

    Background:
    I generally take 2-3 trips/year to Las Vegas to play poker. I have played in buy ins from 1K-10K and do fairly well. I do not play a lot of tournaments, however when I do, I generally do well. I did poker trip reports in the past on 2+2 (see Rolledup222) and had a ton of fun with the TR. I discovered VMB and will do my trip reports here since it is much easier to post live updates.

    What to expect:
    Poker updates
    Some Video Poker including another VP tournament – I won a free hand mixer last time!!!
    Lots of FBBJ
    Some food pics, although I really have no place special lined up.
    Funny stories?
    Massive VMB party after I win Colossal!:drunk::thumbsup:


    What not to expect:

    Hooker stories – hmmm probably not – The Wife says no Hookers or Blow stories this trip… sigh
    No Craps (sorry – can’t afford it)

    Events for today:

    Transport to Cosmo
    Checkin at Cosmo
    VMB meetup
    FBBJ
    Register for Colossal

    In Vegas!!! Check! Fashionable late. Plane broke. Thankfully on the ground. 1.5 hour delay. I was impressed with how fast they got us off and on another plane.

    Thanks guys. Nothing exciting yet. Played session of FBBJ. Was down 1.2k. Then back to -500 then down to 1.5k then back to -400. Not a great start.
    Off to RIo will call for tournament after some super secret pizza!!!

    Have a great trip! I used to play in the wsop 3-4 years in a row. I'm sure you know this, but try playing the satellite tourneys to get chips to buy-in to other bigger tourneys or you can even sell them to ppl waiting in line to register. A must is to play one of the big deep stacks that the rio offers. Very nice structure at certain times with re-buys (I think there are 3 per day) and the 10 pm one is the best from what I remember.

    Most importantly, make sure you get some rest for these tourneys and great luck!!!
