Hey guys, I have been in Vegas the last few days and finally got back this morning. My brother and I took the red eye over night home from Vegas....which is some thing I would never recommend haha. But it probably has something to do with only sleeping minimal amounts for 4 days straight. Needless to say, I am exhausted.

But anyway, for the trip in general I didn't fare too well overall but my losses weren't anything I can't recover from lol  but I am still pissed I didn't win anything. 

But I did actually win a seat in to the WSOP one of the $1,000 buy in tournaments  I was just messing around one night playing 50 cent-$1 NLHE at Bills Gambling Hall and ended up turning quad queens with a 7 kicker. Both hole cards had to play...they were actually giving away 2 seats for the top 2 hands of the day (just some random promotion) my hand held up and there you have it, a seat in the WSOP.

So I guess I will be going back to Vegas in June or July, I get to pick which tourney I want to play in (any 1 of the 5 1k NLHE tourneys). Just pissed because since I lost cash on this last trip, it means I gotta grind it out at work and save as much cash as possible to pay for airfare and lodging 

I could be a total cheap behind and not take advantage of this to save a few bucks...but at the same time, I think it would be pretty crazy to pass up this opportunity. Last year the winners of those tourneys won between 400k-650k  obviously I would be a total longshot but seems like a once in a life time chances that would be tough to pass up.

Whatcha think fellas?

Beats trying the lottery.

Besides, you don't want to regret missing this chance later in life...

GL!

Awesome man! You pretty much HAVE to go play in the touney. You may lose a few hundred backs on the return trip, but that beats saying "man, I should have just went and played". Somebodies gotta win....it could be you!

Congrats AD. Train is cometely right. Better to go and, at worst, lose a few bucks and gain an experience. Who knows what might happen in the tourney.

Yeah, across the street from Caesars Palace but between Bally's and The Flamingo....kind of a smaller, run down joint but nothing terrible IMO. 

Thanks a bunch fellas...so consensus is I should go huh? Bite the bullet and throw down like 700-900 bucks on expenses?  I guess that really isn't a ton of money lol

Get some buddies to sponsor your trip.  Hell, I'll throw you $100 just to keep this thread running.  Quad girl is some serious Karma working for you my man.  Your destiny awaits.

Lmao..."quad girl"  I hope you are right Goose. Man I would gladly be down for some people to sponsor it and gladly split prize $$$ accordingly if I actually did cash....if anyone is seriously interested in doing this let me know. I would document things appropriately and would be very interested in something like this if the situation was right and right people were involved 

It's funny because whenever I found out I won I seriously considered selling my seat...just because it didn't seem feasible to come back. But the more I think about it, going back wouldn't be totally ridiculous.
