And on the seventh day
On Wednesday, I took the day off -- even God rested on the seventh day. I also had to move from the time share where I was to the Golden Nugget downtown. My batteries still aren't recharged and I might take today off, too.
Last night I wandered Freemont Street (see pics below). When I went into the poker room, there was the famous Tony! I got some chips and joined his $1/2 no limit table. I've heard stories, but he was actually subdued and spent most of his time on his phone. He was dressed nicely and played tight poker. One hand, I opened for $10. There were three callers to Tony who shoved for about $115 or so and everybody folded. He showed his hand (jacks) and explained why he played it like that, something I would never do. These fish don't need educating -- keep them in the dark. Maybe he had an ulterior motive for showing, or maybe he just enjoys doing it.
I didn't introduce myself. Not sure if he knows who I am, and if he does, I didn't want him blabbing to the table about my WSOP cashes. Keep the fish in the dark, remember? Maybe I'll play tonight and get a photo of the two of us, why not?
Freemont Street -- it's a federal law.
Even though I've heard him a hundred times, I still stop and listen to Carl "Safe sax" Ferris.
These guys (there were more than one) can take spray paint and make interesting art.
This lady really came on to me. I told her I'm focusing on poker this time, but catch me next trip. She was disappointed, but said she understood.
