I'm currently in a hotel at Gatwick airport before I fly out to Vegas for my 4th trip and 3rd consecutive summer in Vegas. I'll be playing some poker at the Venetian in their deepstack series, possibly a couple at the GN too. A little background on myself would be the best thing I suppose.... I'm Marky as you can probably guess, I'm 29 years old from the UK. I was a poker player/lazy degenerate from xmas 2004 until the beginning of 2009. The reason for stopping, I was diagnosed with MS. The Dr said that obviously stress is linked to relapses and poker is quite stressful as a job. I couldn't really argue the point and had to stop playing fulltime. I didn't move away from the industry altogether and now work as a manager for the company who I was involved with when playing. In a way getting the condition has helped me out as my life is a lot more balanced than it was before. I also get to have more fun in Vegas as opposed to spending all day in the ice cold cardrooms Enough emo nonsense anyway, I'll try to update semi regularly and limit the poker content as I know it can be quite boring to those who are heavily into poker, nevermind those who aren't :evillaugh I think BeeeJay has set the bar too high really and made things rough on us mortals. I will try to remember to post anything entertaining that transpires amongst our group. Embarrassing or not and I'll give mini reports on dinners etc. Just don't expect too much as I was never that great at putting thoughts down onto paper. Hopefully I provide a little entertainment and not an epic fail. Here we go Vegas 2010 is almost here!!!!
