There's poker in Florida


I'm back in Florida. Last Saturday, I checked online and saw that Derby Lane was having their monthly big tournament. It was $240 buyin with 14,000 chips and half-hour levels -- sign me up!

It was a last minute decision or I would have tried to hook up with this guy, a fellow blogger, and someone whom I've met and played with before.

Unfortunately, I didn't cash, but thoroughly enjoyed the tournament and the venue. It's a dog track, as well as a poker room, which adds an interesting vibe.

They also have a snack bar with inexpensive food that looked pretty good. I saw that next Saturday is their monthly senior tournament -- that's the good news. It starts at 10 a.m. and is about a two-hour drive, so I would have to get up at the crack of dawn -- that's the bad news. We'll see, but I might have to give it a try.

  1. I vote that you get up early next Saturday. I have a hunch that you could do well in a Senior's Event MOJO...

  4. Sorry I missed you Mojo, I was at the Hard Rock playing 1/2 NL Saturday. Not overly successfully either. I did play the 1pm tourney at Derby Lane on Monday. I thought of you while I was playing but even your inspiration could not get me to the finish line.

  5. I forgot that my fantasy football league in Raleigh NC (the one I've been in for 25 years) is having its draft Saturday, so won't be playing poker.
