Awful Sunday, Lake Mead Trip Tomorrow

by Shannon Shorr |  Published: May 17, '09

Well, the entire weekend of online poker went just miserably. I played a decent slate yesterday and the full slate today and mustered just one cash in the $500 tournament on Stars for like a min cash. Such is the frustration of tournament poker, I guess. It sucks that you never quite get immune to the pain and frustration that you suffer after a bad Sunday online. Tomorrow myself and 11 others are departing for a 96 hour houseboat trip on Lake Mead just outside of Las Vegas. This is our 3rd annual trip. We've got a 75 foot houseboat that's equipped with a hot tub, 6 rooms, 2 fridges, flat screens, a gas grill and a slide. It's gonna be really sick and will help ease the pain of this weekend and relax us before the WSOP begins in like 11 days. I will be almost entirely unreachable for the next 4 days as cell phone signal is pretty bad out there. I'm looking forward to drinking everything in sight and getting some sun because there'll be little relaxation time once the WSOP commences. Congrats to Travis Rice and Thomas Fuller for first and fourth place finishes, respectively, in the FTOPS $2500 event. SS
