Rockin' the WSOP

Hey all! Here in Vegas at the Rio. I took a summer off last year for various reasons and it was a great idea. It's nice to be back at the WSOP excited about playing poker and excited about just the WSOP in itself. Staying with Wilt who I haven't seen in a very long time. The way underrated part about coming out to Vegas is the opportunity to catch up with a bunch of people you haven't seen.

This morning Wilt and I grabbed food with a buddy/former student of his. He mentioned that WSOP.com emailed him that the games were live so obviously I was chomping at the bit to check it out. Ever the skeptic, Wilt and I propped (my beer to his order of wings) that the games were not live.

We strolled back over to the Rio and walked down the infamous hallway that needs some sort of nickname. Those of you who have never been - it's a long, cavernous hallway that has booths up the wazzoo - all peddling wares for the fanniest of poker fan boys. Some of it I get (poker books) but the rest of the "poker clothing" stuff I'm not too keen on. Even on my 1st trip to Vegas where I stood outside Bobby's Room like they were giving away flags* I don't think I'd buy poker attire. Besides - if I buy it, what are my relatives going to get me for Christmas?! But what do I know. 

Anyway - the hallway. Just littered with bad beat stories. The first words I heard in Vegas not from my cab driver were of course "Man that was such a dumb call." They have these benches which I'm pretty sure were put there to give someone a place to sit when they call their friends to tell them how they busted out. The walk in is full of optimistic and determined struts and the walk out is literally where poker dreams go to die. Keep in mind I say this all as both an observer and willing participant. I'm not some tourny reg who rolls up thinking "just another day in the grind!" The older I've gotten the more I've returned to those dreams of bracelet glory.

Cab driver side note - he literally asked me - "How do you get a woman in NY?" I don't know if he was asking about a "companion" for a night or was mocking my physical appearance (there was a slight stress on the YOU) but regardless I was uncomfortable haha. For those of you wondering what I answered I simply said "you talk to them." Because THAT works.

So we're walking down the hallway looking for the "Lambada Room" so we can check out WSOP.com. Wilt and I finally stumble upon these girls in Vegas attire asking us to register as it will give us a chance at a free entry to any WSOP event. Sure thing! We were going to sign up anyway. After the girl breaks my heart and puts a beer in Wilt's pocket (by losing me the bet and telling me that I can NOT play on there today, not literally sliding a beer into his pocket...or pouring one though that would be even more awkward and funny) we go to register when I stop and tell her we can't as I don't know what username I want to use. This didn't make any sense to this girl but as an online poker player in America the 2nd most exciting thing about legal online poker is the plethora of new screen names you get to use! Are you going to go old school? Should I bring back BigEarn!?! Will Jay sign up as pr1nnyraid? Should we expect to see big name pros use their standard names? The possibilities! "Don't you have one already?" That is FLIGHT SURGEON HOGWASH**!

So Wilt and I took a long, introspective walk around the Amazon room. Deep in thought about what we wanted our WSOP.com names to be. Am I happy with my selection? No. I went with Oluvlydenise for the relaxing, good time name. As I sit here writing I think I should have brought back an old party name or something. But maybe it's too soon. I don't know!  I was not prepared. But in life, when you make a decision, you can kick yourself until it hurts or you can live it. Though usually it's the 1st then the 2nd.

Anyway I'm up here in the room now after unsuccessfully depositing on UltimatePoker (waiting for a support ticket reply - I WILL play legal online poker before I leave!) getting ready to head down to play for a bit. I have some hilarious stories from the tables already - some of which will make it to Live Poker Edge and others I'll probably share on here.

BTW - random poker gossip I won't post on NVG because I don't know anything about this but apparently "The Big Game" moved over to the Venetian this week - most likely due to beef with the Bellagio. Beef. I'm hungry. Wish me the luck! All the luck!

*flags are $5k chips at the Bellagio.

**Anyone seen Apollo 13 with the curses cut out?
