But it's dry heat
I asked my phone what the temperature was today and Cortana said 118 F! Things were hot inside the Rio today at the WSOP, as well. The Super Seniors ended for me when I made a terrible bid. But the good news is I made a final table and cashed in 7th place, better than nothing.
The players were wonderful. Example: On a hand played Monday, I tricked a lady and got two extra big bets out of her. When I showed my hand, she just smiled and said nice hand. The players were polite, just beautiful people having fun. Were there bad players? Yes, absolutely, but there were plenty of good ones too. The final table had bracelet winners (one guy wore his, something I wouldn't do, would you?). I heard dealers say they asked to deal this event as it is fun.
A lady dealer is a fourth-grade teacher who deals in the summer for extra money. She says managing a poker table isn't too different than teaching fourth graders.
I got a tweet from The Grump wishing me good luck. I tweeted back admitting that I had folded 4-2 from under the gun. He tweeted back saying if I didn't win the bracelet, he knew why.
What else? I guess I want to say thanks to all who left comments here and on twitter. The support felt good.
