In Las Vegas...Finally

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: Oct 17, '07

Ah good to be back. We got here almost exactly 24 hours after leaving our hotel in Barcelona. Not much is going on tomorrow except a 500 dollar event at Caesar's. I might play. We're staying at Bally's for a couple of nights. This hotel is actually pretty sick. Never stayed here before. Forgot to say congrats to my Vegas roomie Mike "Bonzo9876" Katz for winning a 109 NLHE event on PS the other night for a yummy 11000 bucks. I've gotten some of your emails via my blackberry about buying online money. I'll reply tomorrow. If you're going to Caesar's tomorrow and read this before you leave, take cash and you can give it to me there. One other thing, guys please quit emailing me asking for loans or backing deals. If I don't know you then there's a better chance of me pursuing a career in synchronized (sp?) swimming than backing you or sending you money. The inbox congestion I get from emails like that make me unmotivated to return all the legitimate emails to which I need to reply. Hope to see some familiar faces here.
