    My Trip Report

    For those of you who remember me, I was posting a live TR from the World Series of Poker Main Event back in July...

    I am headed back to LV in merely hours, to play in the World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event at Caesar's Palace. My starting day is 1B, which is Saturday. On Sunday they will combine the top 15% of both Day 1 and play until there is a final table (9 players remaining). Monday will be the final table - which is broadcast live on ESPN3.com...

    My wife and I will check in tomorrow afternoon, rent a car, and stay at Caesar's Palace (comped!) through Wednesday. The comped room is a Forum Tower King Deluxe, but I am going to try the $20 trick (or maybe a $50) to see if I can get upgraded into anything bigger. My wife's mother is joining us Saturday for the rest of the trip, and I'd love if we could get some kind of suite with a separate bedroom. Who knows if it works, but worth a try...

    Will keep this TR updated as often as I can, with both poker updates and trip updates. When I get home Wednesday night I should be able to post whatever pics I've collected throughout the trip, as I will only have an IPad with me, not a full computer/laptop, until I get home.

    More to come...

    Good luck, WSOPc fields seem to bring a few softer players into town so would be nice to see a deep run.

    Keep us updated with any interesting hands.

    Good Luck and hope to see you at the Final table... Is ESPN3 a broadcast cable feed or internet feed?

    Got in yesterday on a nonstop flight on united from Cleveland. 4 hours door to door; love it. Was already a winner when I checked in and got upgraded from forum tower deluxe to a small suite in Augustus tower. Will share pics of room when I get home wed night.

    We had dinner at Prime at Bellagio, it was amazing. Wife and I both had a bone-in filet with au gratin potato and broccoli. The steak was awesome. I still prefer the filet at Sinatra though!

    Registered for Day 1B of this tournament after dinner and got a Seat 6 draw. Anything but 2/3 or 7/8 is good with me. Saw poker celeb Scotty Nguyen walking around,he played day 1A. Hoping to see some big names in there today.

    Tourney starts at noon with 20,000 chips. More updates to follow....

    I know it's an Internet feed but not sure if there's a real tv channel or not.

    Just finished day 1B of the tournament. Started with 20k chips, was up as high as 115k and just finished a few below 80k. Not terrible, still hanging. I'm a bit below avg going into day 2 but will make the most of it. Should be up much higher out took a bad beat 2-outter on the river towards the end of the night.

    Also eliminated a pro and have seen a couple pros at nearby tables. Elvis was our dealer at one point!

    More tomorrow. Very tired now.
