Poker in the Kitchen

LAS VEGAS -- So far, so good. Play started at 10 a.m. for the $565 buy-in that they are calling the Collosus. They will have more than 20,000 buy-ins, but it will probably take days to figure out all of the numbers. I generally sit at a table in the "Poker Kitchen" to blog, but those tables have been replaced by poker tables. They can't afford to waste that space. I don't know where people will eat. The food is still available, but nowhere to sit.



Play started with a measly 5,000 chips. At the end of level 1, Larry had 6,500. People are busting out fast because they can buy in to the other three Day 1 flights. Go big or go home seems to be the theme, at least in this first flight.


Larry is ready to play



When Larry started playing, I got breakfast. The blackish looking thing is a crunchy piece of potato.
