    1-3nl, UTG+1 opens for 12 (standard raise at the table). I call in late position with 3-3 as do 2 others. Flop is a-5-3. Utg+1 makes it 50 with about 150 behind. I raise to 150, he shoves and I snap. Shows A-6. Turn is an A for a bit of a sweat, but blank on the river. Bought in for 3, at 6 and change now.

    Finished up at the bellagio as Ford texted me that he had arrived and was waiting for his bag. Grabbed a drink at the bar while he made his way to the mirage to get checked in. Didn’t start out well but hit this to bring me back

    It was at this point that the hooker next to me asked me if I wanted a massage “only $100. It’s like free with what you won”. I politely declined.

    Met up with Ford and we hit up bacchanal.

    Slab bacon and American wagyu something or other

    Crab!!

    Pork belly, duck, osso buco

    Tiramisu, key lime, and carrot cake

    Clearly ate too much. Back at the mirage and going to take a power nap.

    Sorry for the radio silence so far today. Up early and sat and played pai gow for many hours. Still getting my ass kicked at everything. Getting a bite to eat at noodles Asia in the Venetian. Plan is to eat, then I’m heading over to the rio to play the 4o’clock daily deepstack. Ford is debating between the Venetian deepstack or a cash game.

    For what it’s worth, pai gow money lasted for quite a while. The video poker before that did not go well

    $15k starting stack. 30 minutes levels. Starts at 100-200 with a big blind ante of 200

    [​IMG]

    Edit: read that wrong. Start at 100-100 no ante

    Level 3. 100-200 200 ante. At 14,300. A little up and down so far but nothing significant.

    24k now. 100-300 300 ante. Dealt J-9 hh in the cutoff, raise to 700. BB, aggressive euro player calls. Flop is 2-3-5 with 2 hearts. He checks, I c-bet 1000 and he calls. Turn is a 6h. He checks, I bet 1500, he calls. River is an off suit 4 bringing the straight on the board. He checks I bet out 2500 and he confidently calls expecting the chop. Note sure if he didn’t see the flush.
