If you haven’t been to Caesar’s for a while, the remodeled poker room was something to see and the tournaments and satellites running as part of the World Series Tour had the place hopping with players dreaming of a place in the spotlight.
I wasn’t so much interested in the spotlight as I was having a little fun and raking in the spoils of solid poker playing.
I walked in at 11:30 in the morning and the room was already packed with players. I immediately found a seat at the $1/$2 no-limit table, sitting down with $200 and I almost doubled my stack in the three hours I played.
As with a lot of sessions, there were very few memorable hands. I called down three mid-range bets when I played A9 suited and took down a nice pot against the bettor who held a weak ace, betting into the AA4-3-8 board.
I caught a straight on the turn two hands later, but it’s hard to bet into a board that pairs kings. A small win is better than ANY loss though.
It wasn’t a fancy play day.
Cash me out a winner.
On a side note: A woman I dated for several months and who accompanied me to my first blogger’s tournament a couple of year’s ago in Las Vegas was stabbed to death in her apartment over the weekend.
She was a wonderful person who didn’t deserve for something like that to happen to her.
