Deja vu again
Above: The Delta Gold Poker Classic concludes Monday at the Gold Strike Casino.
I played in Event No. 18 of the poker tournament (see here) at the Gold Strike with the same results: When we were four-handed, we chopped (divided) the prize pool. This time, we were about even in chips so the photographer took a shot of all four of us. He said he's never done that before. When it appears in any of the web sites, I'll link to it.
Did I play great? No, but I survived among 96 runners, and won some coin flip situations when they were needed. This is always a good thing.
We played until 3:35 a.m. and it's now about an hour later, so this will be short. The main thing I noticed (again) is that when we get to the final table, players start out playing tight then eventually self-destruct for no reason. Not sure, but maybe being tired makes them lose self-discipline. Anyway, I'll take the money, lol.
Above: This is what the shot clock looked like when play ceased. If you click to enlarge, you can see it gives the time of day as 3:36 a.m., and I stayed awake without a nap!
Above: There is a photographer who goes around snapping photos. Players can buy them for a souvenir.
Above is a photo of the foyer where entries are sold.
