At the last minute I decided to play in the tourney at the Goldstrike. When I came home from work, I was tired and laid down and fell asleep. I got there 20 minutes late, but they allow late entries for the first three levels (one hour).
There were 49 players, the entry was $70 and I ended up coming in third. I went out on a race: ♥6 ♦6 vs. ♠Q ♠J. There was no chop because one guy had a huge stack. Too bad I didn't win the race and double up (and essentially knocking out the other guy in the process) because I would have had enough chips so that one more double up would put me back in business. Oh well.
I'm too tired to do a proper recap, but maybe I'll add to this tomorrow. I'll probably play in the Saturday night tournament (6:00 p.m.). Sunday I have tickets to see the AAA Memphis Redbirds and Iowa Cubs. I checked the weather and it's supposed to be sunny and clear (although they say it will hit 90 degrees!), so I am excited about taking some photos.
