If I could get my hands on him now...

Yeah, today is the first day without Beaker being here. You have all probably been through this kind of situation before. Someone leaves and the next day you discover a whole pile of folders hidden in their drawer going back 3 months. Of course, no work has been done on these.

Yep, that is what I have been doing all morning. That and other stuff that cannot be discussed in public. Downside is that I will have to work tomorrow morning. But by this time tomorrow, I will be taking care of last minute items, getting ready to leave for the airport. Probably have a couple before getting on the plane, more while in flight.

I have decided to play in Event #2. I wonder if I am shooting above my head in this one. Offhand, I don't think so. Could I win it all? Why not? I have seen on tv some of the people that get pretty far. If some chick from Maxim can make the money, why can't I? If I hadn't had made the mad cash at Noble, I wouldn't think twice. The only thing holding me back right now is getting a seat before it closes. If I can't get in, I will probably play in one of the daily Bellagio tournaments. Either way, it will be a blast.

Awesome, way to take the leap! I would think that your chances are as good as anyone's. After all, we know that there are a plethora of people out there with way more money than poker skill. Mow a few of those down, and you'll be sitting pretty.

I hope you get your seat. If not, start taking the small game sdown, one by one. And if you are still not satisfied, i will let you kick my butt next weekend at group camp. Don't worry about your Pumpkin, he'll be treated well.
XOXO

Too bad you don't have a baseball cap with your website's logo on it.

Good luck.
