Enough of the excuses for not posting. I did it for you, reader. If I post, our spokesmodel's picture gets knocked down. Couldn't let that happen, could we?

Live poker seems to have taken a backseat to various obligations, but we can also place some of the blame on Otit. Various maladies are negatively impacting the stellar reputation of the premier G-Vegas venue: the 505. Thankfully, I hear the antibiotics are working. With a few other tables under construction in the greater metropolitan area, I suspect that the future looks bright for even more hot spots to throw around chips representing play money. I hear only one of those spots is going to be collecting a play money rake, but they've caved and also agreed to pay the nightly $5 appearance fee to a local celebrity or two.

This weekend, finally, I'm looking forward to fleeing town in a convoy of other local degenerates as we head to the Falstaff Invitational. As we discuss getting to the venue, I predict that one conversation with my fellow traveller will go exactly like this:

BB: Well, let's hit up Yahoo! Maps to find the dopest route.

tAM: I prefer Mapquest.

BB: That's a good one, too.

tAM: Google Maps is the best.

BB: True dat.

Double true!

And, just in time for this event, Noble Poker bestowed on me a whopping $20 come-back-to-us bonus, so I've been hitting the $2+.40 Dirty Dozen Jackpot SNG's pretty hard to get the tournament chops together. The ROI is in the black, baby. So watch out. I don't plan on playing like a chump.
