Quick post here, but I just enjoyed a World Series of Poker podcast on my way to work today that I wanted to share with my the poker-obsessed among my readers. Phil Gordon’s podcasting semi-live from the 2005 WSOP, and despite being new to it, he’s been fantastic, and, he’s broadcast every day for the last 4 days, so I think he’s committed to seeing through the entire tournament. He’s had great interviews with Layne Flack, Daniel Negreanu, Eric Lindgren, Annie Duke, James Woods and others
Had a great Vegas weekend. Went with Peter, met/re-met some ex-Amazonians who were just delightful (Jeanne, Bettina and Maiken), and also got to catch up with some North Carolina friends (Bob, David, Robert, Robbie, etc).
Of course, I wouldn’t be so happy with the weekend if I hadn’t been incredibly luckly at the Bellagio Poker tables — I sat down for four sessions, and won every time! I think I played fairly well, and modified my play based on table conditions (conservative or aggressive players), but in the end, I also caught some fairly good cards, and some great flops. And, one really bad play by a player… he had my straight beat with a full house, but he mucked his cards… I felt the tiniest bit bad for him… guess that’s how you learn… the rest of his session didn’t get much better though.
Only complaint from the weekend was the tuna fish sandwich (Jim calls it my riskiest gamble of the weekend) at the airport that gave me a good case of food poisoning. I’m recovering nicely, but spent the better part of Monday in the fetal position.
Ah well… them’s the breaks.
