    Wasn’t feeling too adventurous for dinner for some reason.

    Young Chow Fried Rice (shrimp & bbq beef) and Pot Stickers. It’s still delicious, though.

    Bravo Miami! What a glorious day of poker for you. Here's hoping for another..

    P.S.-- Lemongrass and you get pot stickers and fried rice?? Your culinary game not near as strong as your poker game last night

    I know, I agree. I was ashamed. I just looked at the menu and just was in a boring mood. I wanted shrimp, specifically, and I didn’t feel like pad thai (another simple choice, yes) and the other shrimp dishes were just too much adventure for my mood.

    I went to the Passtierre for a key lime tart afterwards which was pretty amazing. I had chicken and waffles at Veranda for breakfast a bit ago, too, after my buddy ended his all-nighter playing 5/10 at the Bellagio. He’s on his way to the room now to sleep and I’m playing the $470 Horse today at Aria at 11am. He’s playing a $600/75k event tonight at 7pm and we’re swapping again (I’m taking a bit less since my buy-in is smaller).

    Probably won’t be any interesting updates for the Horse tourney. I’ll share stack size or something if it’s of any note.

    I love the satay skewers at Lemongrass, and almost always eat far too many of those, before heading to entrees, lol.

    Good luck to you both in your tournaments today!

    Nothing much of note so far in Horse. A bit below starting stack but playing outstanding overall. I just ran really bad for a while.

    Had a huge bluff raise in Stud Hi/Lo on the river when I had 2p Tens and Sevens and the low hand bet. I pushed out two different two higher pair hands to split the pot and I was running on fumes before it.

    Playing out of my mind right now. If I can keep it up I’m gonna go deep in this thing. Went earlier from running on fumes from runbad to having an above average stack. Still a really long way to go but if the cards don’t hold me back it’s going to be a good night. $14k up top, I think.

    Ran bad for a while. Lost a big razz hand after we were in the money and then my last hand in stud I have trip 10s, me and another player 4b each other on 4th street and I’m all-in. I hit a full house on 5th street and he hits a straight flush on 6th. Ouch. Oh well, made $600 or so.

    Played $.25 3-line STP at MSS. Had one really nice hit with the multiplier and then a handful of quads. Only ended up profiting $100, but better than losing!

    Brutal race in that HORSE tourney. Lose to a straight flush? Sick.
    Nice hit. But fyi, don't play 9/6/4 Double Bonus when there should be 9/6/4 Double Double Bonus on the same machine. ;) Actually never play Double Bonus if the straight only pays 4 for 1.

    Oh shit. I was so tired last night I didn’t even notice I misclicked and played DB. Good thing I didn’t hit quad aces with a kicker haha!
