This and That
First off Congrat to Hoyazo for his run to the WSOP last night. I had the privilege of railing him through the final two tables and I got to see him actually qualify for the seat here in Vegas. Awesome job Hoy!
Carmen and I had lunch with Mookie, Rocco Boxer and the rest of the Austin Crew at the Red Rock. Mookie and I then got in some 1-2NL action and both of us made some quick cash playing with a table full of absolute donkeys. It was also nice that anytime a donkey busted another donkey took his seat, truly amazing.
Speaking of the Red Rock Poker Room, I ran into a kid there when Carmen and I played on Saturday who I knew from the MGM but hadn't seen him in a while. He told me he was playing daily at the Red Rock and he was making good money. Now I had heard the Red Rock was full of tight locals because its the only room on the west side of town but I think I may have found another room to hit. The table Mookie and I played on was horrible and the kid who happened to be there again, who was a 1-2NL player at MGM, was pimpin the 2-5 table. I'll let you know how soft the games are here as I'll start mixing it up some. I might be able to get my feet wet at the 2-5 here also.
I again played with a short stack all night during the Mookie and made it to 10th before losing a race with T-T vs A-Q. Oh well. Congrats to Smokkee for taking it down. I had the always entertaining Iak at my table most of the night and got to listen to some good mother-in-law tilt stories and for what seemed like the 100th time sat on the right of Eric and battled much harder than I needed to going after each others blinds. I wish I could say it fun Eric and I can, it was fun.
Meeting Mookie at the MGM for a bit tomorrow before his flight back to Austin so I'll probably try to log get 5-8 hours at the table while taking some time off for the Heat-Mavs Game 4. Momentum baby. Heat roll and even things up.
