LAS VEGAS -- Larry bagged 32,500 chips, forty big blinds, for Day 2 (tomorrow, July 6) at the end of a crazy day.
After an earthquake during brunch, Larry started his day at the poker table with a group that included alcoholic-falling-down-drunk guy. DG wasn't just drunk but pickled. He wouldn't shut up, didn't know what was going on most of the time. By the end of the night (he bagged around 20k chips!) he had sat out a total of 4 rounds--an amount that nobody at the table had ever witnessed--and was on the cusp of being thrown out. For a while, he went all-in hand after hand. Nobody bit, until.... well, the guy in Seat 1 went for it after DG showed (tossed across the table) 2-5 offsuit. Seat 1 had 9-10 offsuit. You know what's going to happen. DG found three 2s. What a way to bust out. Sorry Seat 1!
When DG didn't show after the dinner break, rumor was that he had been arrested near the Mexican restaurant. But he eventually came staggering back, literally being held up by a friend. He said that he had been detained by security guards but talked them into letting him play.
We're going to shift away from poker today and take in some NBA Summer League.
Last night, we got to our hotel room just before 2:00 a.m. and watched a little Jeopardy to wind down. I was killing it. Here's to hoping Larry kills it on Day 2.
