The View From My Window
Just a few pics:
Think I'm gonna go for a quick dip before I get to work this afternoon.UPDATE:
Still don't have access to the Ultimatebet blog yet, hopefully soon. I've been hanging here, writing up stuff to post when I have access. Got to meet John Vorhaus, who as advertised seems a great guy. Met up with Linda
, the legend, who's dealing here this week (and will be staying on a bit afterwards). Quite a few of the pros are here--Antonio Esfandiari, Annie Duke, Russ Hamilton. Saw Jack McClelland walk by my seat a few times. And as I went to the rest room (my head cold refuses to let go) I saw Phil Hellmuth coming down the stairs.
I took some pics of the Wyndham poker room, though it took the folks working there a few minutes to decide they'd let me snap away. I guess the usual aversion to the press, in whatever capacity.UPDATE:
Still clattering away, still don't have access to the site to post it there. I think everyone's busy registering players, and after speaking to my boss I haven't seen the tech guy to get me access.
I heard my first bad beat story! She had 6-4, he had Q-10, flop comes Q-6-4, push-call, and the guy hits a ten on the river. I feel confident that'll be the only bad beat story I hear all week.
Except for the one I just heard.
And the one after that.
Oh, and I think poker players like betting sports. That's my deep thought of the day. Hopefully be posting on the UB blog soon.
