so after last week's slaughtering, i'm headed back to the Beau this weekend and hoping for better luck. i'm going for the Champions Tour event at Fallen Oak. i'm going to watch the final round on Sunday at the course and the play in a $30k poker tournament on Sunday night and a $30k Pro-Am on monday. it's going to be a quick in and out trip with only about 2.5 days and much of that spent watching or playing golf. all in all i know i'll have a great time on the course and i'm hoping for as good of a time at the tables. i'm taking a much smaller bankroll than normal after losing so much last weekend. so i'm going to start playing very small and hope to get a good run going and be able to start pressing my bets. if i can get ahead on the first night then i can be more liberal with my bets when playing with their money. at least they're going to give me an extra $2k in promo chips because of my loss last weekend, so that on top of my usual $1k for every trip should help me stretch things a little farther. i'm taking my father in law this time instead of my wife because she just went last weekend and doesn't really care about watching golf anyway. so besides my usual suite, i got a connector for him. the weird thing about the Beau is all the connectors to the big suites have 2 double beds. the only connectors they have with King beds are connected to the smaller suites. doesn't make any sense to me, but ... for food, we're planning on going to BR Prime on Saturday and Sunday nights and going to JIA (asian/sushi) on Monday night. we'll mostly stick with room service for breakfast and just pick up some snacks and such for lunch. other than that, it will just be gambling. mostly Bacc with some BJ mixed in. i just practiced up on my BJ BS on wizardofodds.com and made a nice "winner" on his game so hopefully that's a sign of good things to come! i'll try to post an update on saturday night or sunday and again on monday night or tuesday depending on how things go.
