So here's the current plan for "scheduled" activities at the WPBT Summer Gathering.
Thursday June 5- Drink at the Geisha Bar at the Imperial Palace. The IP has become a good central gathering place due to low-stakes Pai Gow, terrible poker players and cheap rooms. I'll be staying there, and I get in Thursday afternoon. The drinking will commence around 8ish, or whenever several people get there.
Friday June 6 - Drink at the MGM Grand and play poker. I'll try to get some mixed game things going, but I'll be in the Sports Book Bar drinking most of the time.
Saturday June 7 - Drink a lot. The folks at the Venetian haven't gotten back to me with a time for a private tourney, so that looks like a no-go. I plan to go play the $150 Shootout at the Binion's Poker Classic. The Venetian Deep Stacks is also going on, as well as that thing over at the Rio. So there's plenty of poker to be played. I think invading the lunch buffet at the Wynn may be in order.
Sunday June 8 - Brunch - somebody tell me where we should eat. Sunday night - last chance to drink like college kids.
Monday June 9 - Fly home.
There has been some interest expressed by some folks who want to buy our bar tab or do something else nice for the bloggers, so I'm putting this "schedule" out there in order to help plan our time a little more and maybe get us some free drinks. I am in no way responsible for your good time, and I promise not to hold you responsible for my good time.
My goals for the trip -
1) Have StB buy me a nice lunch in accordance with our wager on the Davidson/Wisconsin game.
2) Drink with my friends.
3) Tilt at least three people by my atrocious play at a 2/4 limit table.
4) Drink with my friends.
5) Take a certain member of my home game entourage to a certain adult establishment and get him a lap dance.
6) Drink with my friends.
7) Buy Pauly, Otis, Change100 and all the other poor saps who will be killing themselves at the WSOP a drink.
I'm gonna chill out and have a good time. Organizing tournaments for 100+ people is stressful, so this time 'round, I'm just gonna have as good a time as I can without ending up in a wheelchair.
