The safest way to double your money is to fold it over once and put it in your pocket. - Frank McKinney Hubbard

Nobody is always a winner, and anybody who say he is, is either a liar or doesn't play poker. - "Amarillo Slim" Preston

First things first. Have you ever seen a person fall off the "hot tree" faster than Britney Spears. I mean seriously. Just look at a before and after of her.

Not sure when this was taken, but I'd hit it.

Sure, she might be pregnant here, but really, would you hit it? Better yet, another photo ...

Ah yes, nothing says sexy like this, huh?

Anyways, enough about that.

Well, after about a year of trying, Iggy and I finally met up for some beers last night. Iggy = stand up guy and super smart poker mind.

We enjoyed talking poker, beer, baseball, and some Britney - hence her falling from grace.

Me = novice; Iggy = Pro

Talked about the PokerStars blogger WSOP satellite event coming up. If it isn't too late, I want to play. After all - I think there might be an omen behind the date of the event. It is my birthday afterall.

I will be in Las Vegas March 22-26. I made those plans long before the next WPBT date the very next week. So, if for some stroke of luck I were to get a seat at that tournament ... mark my words, I will be there for it. I told Iggy last night, if that were to happen, I would catch a flight immediately after work Thursday and be there Friday morning.

Now, while trying to build a bankroll for Vegas, I realized (after Iggy told me) that I'm going about this all wrong. I'll retool and start fresh. Limited time to build enough to have some "fun" with out in Vegas.

This will also be the first time my wife will be in Vegas. She really looking forward to the trip. She's earned it with all the hard work in Law School. I'm taking her to go see "O" at the Bellagio. I'm actually looking forward to it too, but I wanted to see Zoomanity - the adult-friendly Cirque' Du Soleil show.

Also, I cracked Iggy last night about my views with my site. I enjoy doing this site, but I realize that there aren't many people out there that read my site. I don't have the following of the other people out there. I love to read what everyone writes, but I know I'm not as good a writer as a lot of you. I won't link to those that I think are the best. You know who you are.

Anyways, I don't really get too much a kick out of anyone reading this or not. It's fun for me. Gives me a place to unwind mostly. Hell, I cannot stay on topic most times.

Well, that's all for tonight. More in a few days.

We should get a little TriState home game tourney together. We could even call Ryan Flask err Freel to give us all a ride home after. (I never would have expected that from Freel)Go Reds!
