Yes, it is that time again. Time for spending too much money, meeting up with friends and loved ones, partying until all hours, and generally making merry. No, I'm not talking about Christmas season; that's just a coincidence. I'm talking about the annual World Poker Blogger Tour gathering in Las Vegas. As in past years, the debauchery occurs over the first weekend of December; specifically, Friday December 6 through Sunday December 8. The WPBT tournament will be held at the Aria poker room on Saturday, mixed games will be at MGM Grand on Friday afternoon, and other stuff is being organized by various people. Full details are available at the Facebook event page:
I will be there, arriving Friday morning and leaving Monday afternoon, and staying at The Quad (formerly known as the Imperial Palace). I will be following the action and posting updates on Twitter, where my handle is @yestbay. I'm looking forward to catching up with lots of friends there and playing some poker.
I haven't played any real-money poker since my last blog post. I have been playing in the local WPT-APL tourneys; last night, I chopped first place with three others for 1/4 of the $100 prize pool. I still have the WPT-APL National Championship tourney in Las Vegas in April on my radar, having qualified for it as mentioned in my last post.
In other news, my wife and I will be moving from Texas to the Los Angeles area in January, to be near my wife's ailing dad. This should put me closer to the poker action, but it remains to be seen just how much I will play once I get there.
See you next weekend in Vegas!
