Raise or Fold:  A Year of Risky Business

Writing and playing poker as if they were activities worth doing well.

Day 48: Marathon

Fifteen straight hours of poker. I am completely exhausted, and can only cough up these few poor sentences before I drag myself off to church, then nap, then dinner.

I once again failed to cash in my A League end-of-quarter tournament (I bubbled, painfully). This is an ongoing travesty for me, and I'm embarrassed by it. I'm not sure why this particular especially lucrative prize continues to elude me. It is beyond frustrating.

On the upside, however, I cashed in the subsequent tournament, and did very, very well in the cash games between and after.

This is all well and good, but it is not terribly conducive to a well-ordered life, and I suspect I've just let myself in for a very nasty cold or something. I have been shredding my stamina for the last ten days or so, and it's bound to catch up with me.

I will probably be posting thinly for the next five days or so, as I try to get my life at least vaguely organized before my four-day trip to Vegas on October 9th. I've got a lot of ground to cover, and not a lot of time. And I need to try and bank some quality rest before I start up the madness again in Sin City.

SO sad to be missing you... If it'd been up to me, I would have made sure our trips overlapped. But, alas, we're headed into peak time for Vegas and my traveling companions were all broke.

It'll be tough for me to make the next Rendezvous, but I'm starting to feel like I really need to, at least for a day or two...

I'm really sorry to miss you too.

Although, I've gotta say, "broke" seems like a bad time for people to be going to Vegas, even on the cheap!

Agreed, but the destination was my idea... Or rather, Bastin's idea, at least originally. They just wanted to get together.

We did a lot of walking the strip and playing video poker for pennies... Then I played poker and / or Pai Gow (I think that's two words) after everyone else went to bed.
