Yes indeed it is I, the one, the only, the OakDawg live from a Vegas hotel room. I started the trip up after going 3 for 4 on my MNF bets last night, but alas the spirits, they do not favor me. I sat down at a $1\$2 no limit hold em table this afternoon and, despite getting my money in good each and every time, that is $100 I'll never see again. I cannot stomach the losses even knowing that I played it correctly so here I sit alone in my room while pretty much everyone else is down in the casino. My observations so far:<br><br>
Vegas is not the place to be if you have an SO and they aren't along. There are ridiculous amounts of smoking hot women here and they all flaunt it. I walked through the lobby just now and the cast of some show was doing a photo op. Lets just say that there was ample cleavage and flossing going on. I'm going to explode before I get home.<br><br>
The rooms aren't made to keep you entertained. Pretty small television and no hbo, showtime or anything. At least they gave me an ipod clock\radio thing so I have Bon Jovi keeping me company at the moment.<br><br>
I don't care if I ever come here again. I play the games that are stacked against me (most everything) and I get crushed. I play the game that I might have a statistical edge on (poker) and I get crushed. I'm half expecting someone to come to my door in a few minutes, punch me in the face and take the rest of my cash just for giggles.<br><br>
Geek conferences like this one are kind of depressing.

Really? Really???<br><br>
I guess I fundamentally misunderstand Vegas, then.

Well, I suppose it does matter if you actually care about said SO and have a conscience. Apparently I do...who knew?

Never, ever, ever stay at the Treasure Island. Oh its nice enough. Decent casino (though the poker room is pretty worthless and there are much nicer places around), the rooms are ok and all, but their live show (which is 4 times a night from 7:00 to about 12:30) features cannons. And they shake the rooms. It kinda sucks.

Sounds like you are having a good time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> You should have spent your $100 at the spa and gotten a nice massage. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Lots of good food to be eaten there!

You can't get rich at the spa!<br><br>
Then again, I'd be a lot more relaxed. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">

poker is fun like that.....when i tried to play 1-2 there, i blew through 100 in 2 hands after getting QQ and AA back to back (neither of which held up of course)<br><br>
I always liked the tournies better anyway. Go for some of those!

I picked up AQ and hit broadway on my first hand. Sadly the guy next to me also had AQ and, thus, also hit broadway so we split about $10. I may have to find me some tournament action tonight.

I think this and JCs advice go hand in hand.<br><br>
Well, back to the conference I go (lunch time is over). Have fun being (sort of) unmoderated!
