Bottle service at The Bank was ridiculous. #Ballin! Giannetti had a couple of tables for some of his friends and family that're in town to support him tomorrow (and hopefully tuesday!) at the WSOP ME final table. He told me that he is just antsy to actually get to playing poker instead of all the business/promotional stuff that is associated with being in the Nov 9. He didn't drink and is feeling really focused. Hell of a way to start off the trip, I can't wait for tomorrow when it all get's started!
I am just so happy for him, he's always been a super sicko at poker and has always been super motivated to grind real hard. He's been a successful live pro for a couple years now, but was pretty unknown outside of live cash game circles. He has had a couple of deep runs in some live events and online events pre-BF, but never made a prestigious final table or took down a sunday major. After making the Nov 9 and taking down WPT Malta, he's certainly becoming a more well known name in the poker world. Obviously winning a tournament doesn't mean that you're a poker badass, but if you happen to be one, it doesn't hurt. Stoked for tomorrow's FT!
Off to Lotus tonight... food porn to follow.
