    60k now. 200-400 400, I’m on the button with 77. 5 limpers to me, I make it 2k and get 5 callers. Flop is 4-6-8 rainbow. Checks to the big stack who bets 3300. I tank raise to 10k and she tank calls. Turn is an ace. She shoves covering me and I call for my last 10k assuming I’m going home unless I hit a 5 or 7. She announces she’s on the draw and shows a 2-3, so drawing dead (a 5 gives me a higher straight). River is an 8 and I take it down. As the pot is being pushed to me, she says “that’s an aggressive bet with an under pair to the board”. Again, she called and then shoved with a 2-3. She’s since busted.

    Few hands later I get another 12k with a set of 6’s on an 3 flush, 4 straight board.

    And we’re in the money. First hand after folds to me as the short stack (30k ish) in the small blind (3k). I shove with 5-7 against the second shortest in the big blind. He calls with A-9. Flop is 9-7-x, turn 7, river 5. At 72k now.

    Spent the morning playing some pai gow and high card flush to basically break even. Ford isn’t feeling well and went to go lie down. I’m off to Aria for some Julien Serrano the to find a cash game. Probably bellagio.

    Up first, red sangria and yellowtail tiradito.

    Love the Sangria here, and the yellowtail is quite good. Fish is fresh, the shredded filo in the center adds a nice texture element as well.


    Iberico ribs. Tender and extremely tasty.

    And the oxtail which I’ve gotten before and is simply fantastic.

    Waited for an hour at the bellagio for a 1-3 then gave up. Heading to Venetian for 1-2, but stopped at mirage for a drink and to cool off.
