Things I’ve seen
(Las Vegas, NV)–It’s 9:15pm. I start work at 10pm. I could be finished at 11pm or 11am. It all depends on whether a scary Russian and maniacal Dane decide to gamble for $4 million or play a 12-hour game of poker chess. I’m hoping for the former. To stay awake and help me pay attention, I’m wagering more than a reasonable amount of money on inanities and coin flips. I’d explain it, but it’s not the kind of thing that belongs on a family blog. Last thing I want my kid reading about me 20 years from now is how I bet the cost of his tuition on whether the number of hands played in a poker game will be even or odd (I’ve got even, by the way. I think).
In the meantime, here are some things I’ve seen over the past couple of days that bear some remembering.
Time to grab some caffeine and prepare for the long haul. By the next time I sleep, this year’s World Series of Poker will be a memory.
